Fashion Week, here I come!

Well, all the weeks of stressing, couture-cramming, planning, speculating and fretting have led to this moment: By Thursday night, I'll be in New York City, rubbing elbows with the fashionable and fabulous at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.

I'm excited, but also petrified the fashion police will confiscate my editor card if they catch me doing a Chris-Farley-interviewing-Paul-McCartney impersonation around Tim Gunn. Let's hope something like this doesn't happen:

Me: "Uh, Mr. Gunn? Remember when you were on that show, 'Project Runway,' and you said 'Make it work'?"

TG: "Yes?"

Me: "That was cool."

I'm going to try to be less superfan than that -- I promise. All bets are off, though, at the Betsey Johnson show. There's little that the 65-year-old designer does that I don't adore.

Be sure to check in daily for the latest updates on the runways, and of course, which celebs are seated in the front row.
