Celebrities took center stage at New York Fashion Week with some of the biggest names in fashion and show business in attendance to see the Spring 2013 collection shows at The Tents at Lincoln Center from Sept. 6-13.

On Sept. 6, the first day of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, the crowd of celebrities was light and almost non-existent with the MTV Video Music Awards happening simultaneously in Los Angeles, Calif. Then, things picked up pace when some days there were moe celebrities front row than buyers or editors. 

One of the most memorable sightings was Cyndi Lauper, who performed at the Betsey Johnson retrospective show, which also was her 70th birthday party. Lauren Conrad, former MTV reality star turned designer, definitely won the award for attending the most shows, making appearances at Rebecca Minkoff, Badgley Mischka and Lela Rose, to name a few. Michael Kors singlehandedly attracted the most celebrities to his show, withone entire side of the center front row consisting of Michael Douglas, Catherine Zeta Jones, Olivia Munn, Marisa Tomei, Camilla Belle, Katharine McPhee and Nina Arianda. Kimye, otherwise known as Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, also stepped out for the Marchesa show on the final official day of Fashion Week on Wednesday.

And, off course, the high priestess of fashion herself, Anna Wintour of Vogue, came out for a select few shows including Rag & Bone, Rodarte and Jason Wu. But Fashion Week isn't only for fashionistas; U.S. Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte even went to a few shows including Ralph Lauren and Rebecca Minkoff.
