While editors attending New York Fashion Week are probably clutching their cans of Diet Coke, trembling gleefully because it's almost over, the rest of us are sad that there's only a few more days worth of shows to lust over. Here are some highlights from Day 6 of NYFW:

· Elie Tahari went heavy metal but still kept the Hollywood glam looks, from slinky red-carpet worthy looks to "oh, this old thing is just what I wear on my yacht. In Monaco." []

· Badgley Mischka let it flow, with long looks mostly covering legs, and even the short ones had enough excess fabric to smuggle enough large Pinkberry's to feed everyone in the audience. [HuffPo]

· Vera Wang seriously raided our old Barbie collection for inspiration on those poufy bobs and huge-hipped and one-shouldered dresses. [Fashionologie]

· Herve Leger's Max Azria continues to use lines and optical illusions to make skinny women look almost non-existent, but he essentially sent several tutus down the runway, and we now insist that he keep at least a 100 yard radius between himself and Betsey Johnson. [Fashionologie]

· Rachel Roy created some gorgeously wearable separates, but then there were the tie-ankle harem pants and the rhinestone-encrusted strapless top. [FabSugar]

· Karen Walker mixed some seriously charming prints and ruffles while channeling both the 70s and the 80s. [Fashionologie]

· Rodarte rocked the strategic draping looks, but we don't have much love for the pants with waists so high they could double as bras. Or the gold gladiator looks that could be semi-fashionable waitress uniforms from Caesar's Palace. [FabSugar]

· Marc by Marc Jacobs was bright and colorful and full of floral prints and the confirmation that miniskirts are so totally over. []

· Tibi's use of white lace, khaki and bold prints had a very "ladies who lunch at the country club" vibe...and now we have a craving for a chicken salad sandwich. [The Cut]
