It is a dream come true for most fashionistas to be seated front and center at Lincoln Center for New York Fashion Week. What you may not realize is that the plaza right outside is a fashion show all its own. We were able to snap a few photos of some very well dressed Latinas right outside the tents. Which outfit are you loving?

Although we’ve been watching Afro-Latina supermodel Joan Smalls walk the runways all week during New York Fashion Week, we’re still most transfixed with her look for the Carolina Herrera show.
Her hair was left down and long, held back with a thin black elastic headband. The trick, hairstylist Orlando Pita explained, is to put the headband around your neck before you tease all the hair, and then pull it up and place it just behind your ears and about two-inches past your hairline.

After creating his ocean-inspired spring collection, Carmen Marc Valvo came to MAC makeup artist Romero Jennings knowing that a teal eye would be the perfect complement. Romero modernized the classic 60s shade by pairing it with a light gold-green metallic (the new MAC shade, called Dalliance, will be available this spring) and a neutral, brownish-pink lip color (the shade, called Super is part of a new Kissable Lip Color line also coming out in spring).
Watch Romero talk about the look while he preps a model for the runway:

Is this just a crazy, random coincidence, or was Narciso Rodriguez's Fall 2009 collection partially inspired by Café Tacuba? The Cuban American designer, who is a favorite of First Lady Michelle Obama, sent his models down the runway earlier this week in eye-slit headgear that bore a strong resemblance to the low-brimmed hat that's become a signature look for Rubén Albarrán, a member of the Mexican alt-rock band.

From Oct. 20 to Oct. 26, 2008, Mexico's best and brightest fashion designers showed their finery at Campo Marte in Mexico City for Mexico Fashion Week. In its tenth year, the event began as a minimal affair with one designer showing per night. "Today we have over 30 shows in six days," said José Andrés Patiño, FWM's general director to WWD. The lighting was gorgeous, the models were breathtaking and the clothes were innovative, smart and artfully executed.

L.A. Fashion Week has always held second candle to the more prestigious fashion weeks around the world: New York, Milan, London and Paris. After all, it's the city that gave Lauren Conrad carte blanche to create her unbelievably lame debut line! And all too often, the shows coming from Smashbox feel anemic and lackluster. Nevertheless, L.A. still attracts tons of celebrities to grace the front rows, especially Latina starlets.
