New York Fashion Week Fall 2013: Tracy Reese, Angela Bassett And Street-Style Stars ... Oh My! (VIDEO)

We just love New York Fashion Week! It's the two times of year we get to see all the upcoming trends, chat with our favorite designers and check out the most fashionable people in the world. This season we did all that and more -- and captured it on tape for your viewing pleasure via our "Style In The Wild" video series.

Over the past few days we've been gathering some pretty amazing highlights from inside the tents at Lincoln Center, the home of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. We got the lowdown from street-style stars and even chatted with renowned actress Angela Bassett. Squeeee!

And Fashion Week isn't truly official in our heart without attending the Tracy Reese show. This season Tracy was inspired by the New York City girl and it was amazing. We loved the collection's strong urban vibe, which is quite the departure from the oh-so-pretty frocks and separates that have come to define Tracy's signature feminine look. Animal prints, leather and neon anchored the edgy collection. The 80s are back and looking better then ever. Nevertheless, there were plenty of lady-like designs for Tracy Reese loyalists, like First Lady Michelle Obama, to love. Tracy knows how to cover her bases.

"People come to New York to be somebody and get somewhere," Tracy told The Huffington Post. "There are a lot of great individual women here that express themselves with their style and I wanted to celebrate that."

Word up!

Check out the video above for some sensational street-style moments -- plus our chats with Angela Bassett and Tracy Reese.
