As you might recall, Greta Eagan, blogger behind Greta Guide, won our Beautiful Blogger contest back in June.

Her fabulous winnings included: a trip to New York Fashion Week, a stay at the Mark Hotel, a cut by Fekkai's Robert Sherman, a $1,000 shopping spree, show tickets and interview with Catherine Malandrino, plus a ton of other goodies.

Here, a day in the life of our winner at last week's Fashion Week events.

Three predominant themes spotted among stylish show-goers on Day 1 of Fashion Week? Shearling coats, fedoras and splashes of color--from the lips right down to the shoes.

Sitting outside the tents with camera in hand and an eye on the crowd, this gal goes for all three at once.
It's freezing outside the Fashion Week tents so stylish show-goers are piling it on with multi-layers worn beneath voluminous capes. Here, Preetma, an intern for the rad Refinery 29, stays warm in fab blanket coat by Comme des Garcons.

With the weather outside rather frightful, many Fashion Week show-goers have been trapping the heat with hunting hats, complete with fur-lining and flaps. Here, a multi-tasker making her way into the tents tops it off with a a brown shearling style to match her coat.

The uber-talented Stephens sisters, Phoebe and Annette, showed their collection of beautifully-crafted jewelry at Milk Studios tonight. We had the pleasure of meeting this charming duo at their NYC atelier recently, where we drooled over their Anndra Neen line, each cuff and necklace resembling a piece of sculpture. See their complete Beautiful Stranger profile here next week.
