Again, the NY Times whips it out with some hilarious no-holds-barred calling-it-like-it-is reviews this fashion week. Today's prize for best lede goes to Eric Wilson who writes: "It’s always such an annoyance that Fashion Week overlaps with the Westminster dog show, since few editors have time to keep up with the canine competition. A shame, too, considering there’s not that much difference between the two events—a bunch of preening poodles paraded around in a circle before an audience ready to point out their slightest flaws, or tell them they’re too fat."
