    Naomi Campbell, designer Zac Posen, and Coco Rocha walk the runway at the Zac Posen Spring 2013 fashion show during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.

    Highlights from New York Fashion Week:

    Zac Posen clearly won the award for most star power on the runway with Naomi Campbell opening the show. Other special guest models included Angelina Lindvall, Karolina Kurkova, and of course, designer favorite, Coco Rocha, who closed the show in a mind-blowing classic Posen satin gown.

    The only lights flashing at Alexander Wang's Saturday show was from the glow-in-the-dark ensembles the designer surprised guests with close to the end of the show, as guests were asked to refrain from using flash photography upon entering Pier 94. Wang had another surprise up his sleeve when actress Liberty Ross walked the runway as a model.

    If you were on any form of social media this weekend, especially Instagram, you felt as if you were at a NYFW after party with everyone else. The most notable parties were Alexander Wang's epic rager held in a bank with performances from Die Antwoord and Busta Rhymes, Prabal Gurung's where the designer himself sang karaoke with Hilary Rhoda and many other fashion A-listers, and Opening Ceremony's bash where Lil Kim rocked the house with diamonds covering her chest, naturally.

    As expected, Victoria Beckham's modern body-conscious dresses comprised her Spring 2013 collection, but the designer included some looser separates this time around. A notable highlight was a very special front row guest, her husband David Beckham.
