So another Fashion Week begins and there's a little nostalgia in the air because it's the last of the shows at Bryant Park. The tents are decorated with quotes from designers, models and industry bigs. "Bryant Park will never be so last year," says one. Inside. Starbucks has replaced McDonalds as coffee purveyor and later Rums of Puerto Rico promises to liven things up with cocktail hour. My fave so far--the adorable metal Diet Coke bottles at the Heart Truth booth.

They don't call it Mercedes benz Fashion Week for nothing. This slick SLS AMG (not coming out til 2011) is the first thing you see when you walk into the tent.
