It is always a trick to get a taxi in the morning during NYFW, but I managed to catch the sensationally elegant Carolina Herrera show at 10:35 a.m. on Monday, February 11.

Stylist Brad Goreski, in the front row, wore a shiny purple coat. Also spotted front and center: Ivanka Trump, Maggie Grace, and Molly Sims. "The weather is insane," mentioned Sims. And during the show, right in front of Anna Wintour, one model caught a heel and flailed an arm out at the last second to keep from falling on the runway.
