The Final Tally - New York

New York FW0910 - 12 shows total

It has been quite the exciting week, no?

It all started with Rag & Bone on Friday. Freja debuted longer hair and the return of fringe bangs that were her trademark when she first started out a few years ago.

On Saturday we had Alexander Wang. So far, Freja was two for two in terms of the big name shows. I don't know about you, but I was anxious the whole week because I kept expecting her to disappear all of a sudden like she disappeared from Milan last season.

Lucikly, on Sunday we got to see Freja four times. She had two looks at Herve Leger and two looks at Jonathan Saunders. The later show was a nice surprise as I don't think she's ever walked it before.

Monday was relatively quiet until the Marc Jacobs show that night. No surprise there as Freja's walked every Marc show since she started.

Freja made up for the calm day on Monday by walking in three shows on Tuesday. She showed up in two looks at the Diesel Black & Gold show, and she also made an appearance at Marc by Marc Jacobs, much to everyone's delight. The MbyMJ show usually has a cast comprised of lesser known girls so seeing Freja and the likes of Lily, Sasha, and Stam there was completely unanticipated. The day concluded with two runway looks at Narcisco Rodriguez.

Wednesday was completely quiet, and I thought my fears were coming to light. No Freja at Michael Kors or Proenza Schouler, both of which she's walked in the past (I think). Did she leave NY?

On Thursday we found out that the answer to that question was a resounding no. She walked in Tommy Hilfiger, Phi, Isaac Mizrahi, and Zac Posen. Her busiest day in New York! Freja was probably resting up on Wednesday knowing that she was going to be walking in four shows on Thursday. She's walked all of them in past seasons except for Isaac, so it was quite surprising to see her there--in two looks no less! And at Tommy I thought she looked particularily beautiful, looking as fresh as she did when she first hit the runways in 2005.

Today there were no Freja sightings, but it is the last day of New York Fashion Week so the girl is probably resting those tired feet and preparing for Milan. But more likely she's out dancing, partying and celebrating the end of a great week!

Freja doesn't walk in London so we get a little break before the whirlwind that is bound to be Milan and Paris. So in the meantime, what were your favorite looks in NY? Any upcoming shows you're dying to see Freja walk in? Any shows you'll be disappointed in if she doesn't?

Love her Zac Posen makeup. So rare that we see her in bright lipstick!
