New York Fashion Week is certainly not for the timid. You've got falling models, intimidating street style, scary nail art and don't even get us started on all of the gross things we spotted backstage.
So what about the actual clothes designers sent down the runway this season? Sure, there are some crowd-pleasers like Oscar de la Renta, Jason Wu and Marc Jacobs. But don't you think the Average Joe might have a thing or two to say about Jeremy Scott's "Big Bird" look?
Of course, industry folks didn't seem to bat an eyelash at the fluffy yellow number -- this is fashion, after all, and free expression seems to be the industry motto. Fortunately, this attitude leaves us with a plethora of strange, off-kilter looks that we're sure you would buy... well, never.
