While Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week may be all about clothes, accessories, hair and makeup in order to forecast what looks people will be sporting and buying in stores for the upcoming season, the week-long biannual event presents many opportunities for stellar photos.

One of the most memorable instances was when Naomi Campbell made the crowd gasp at Zac Posen, when she opened the show with that infamous Naomi walk that can't be described wearing a hibiscus silk dress. If that wasn't enough, Coco Rocha closed the show in a beautiful, layered-tier white bridal gown. Beautiful gowns were on the minds of all attendees of the Jenny Packham show, which fell on the same day Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton donned a creation by the British designer for her first day of the Diamond Jubilee tour.

Then, as always, the genius that is Marc Jacobs pulled off another one of his high-speed runway shows with 45 mod looks in under seven minutes to the tune of Fall. Speaking of geniuses, sister design prodigies Laura and Kate Mulleavy of Rodarte did it again with their Spring 2013 collection inspired by role-playing games. And now that we're on the topic of nerdom, Diane von Furstenberg with the help of Google co-founder Sergey Brin unveiled Google Glass at her runway show, along with the announcement of a behind-the-scenes short film using the new high-tech smart video camera glasses.

While fashion and scandal seem to go hand-in-hand (No one forgets all of those wardrobe malfunctions), the Spring 2013 season seemed to be short on controversy. Even when Liberty Ross, the wife of "Snow White and the Huntsman" director Rupert Sanders, walked in the Alexander Wang show, there was only a faint whisper about his alleged cheating with Kristen Stewart. And thankfully, no models fell this year. That we know of.

Here's a look back at some of the most incredible moments at New York Fashion Week for the Spring 2013 season. Also, check out reports from the front row at the special New York Fashion Week coverage page.
