Perrey Reeves mid-sentence at Luca Luca

As Fashion Week winds down, we look back on the highs, the lows, and the completely random celebrity sightings (Perry Reeves and Malin Akerman were everywhere). By our count, New York Fashion Week S/S 2009 had:

Three runway stumbles: Arlenis at BCBG, Abbey Lee at Rodarte, and Chanel Iman at Peter Som

Three shows with live music: Beatles covers at Rock & Republic, Cowboy Junkies at Ports, and Seu Jorge at Carlos Miele

Four Sartorialist spottings: In cropped pants on Wednesday, shooting at Jeremy Laing on Tuesday, wearing white jeans on Monday, and rocking shorts on Friday

Five shopping frenzies: The Target Bodega Opening, the Target Bodega party, the YSL sample sale, the disastrous YSL bag handout, and the Colette x Gap opening

Nine shows attended by Malin Akerman, Perrey Reeves, or both: Monique Lhuillier, Max Azria, William Rast, Tracey Reese, Luca Luca, Reem Acra, Marchesa, Nanette Lepore, and Nicole Miller

10 shows attended by Nina Garcia: Project Runway, Zac Posen, Christian Siriano, Vera Wang, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Michael Kors, Derek Lam, Dennis Basso, Rock & Republic, and Yigal Asrouel

21 shows attended by our nation's finest athletes: Anna Sui, Max Azria, Vivienne Tam (Ryan Locte); Max Azria, Peter Som (Nastia Liukin); BCBG, Verrier, Alexandre Herchcovitch (Alicia Sacramone); Zac Posen, Vera Wang, DVF, Carolina Herrera (Venus Williams); Zac Posen, Calvin Klein, Doo-Ri, Vivienne Tam, Luca Luca (Serena Williams); Peter Som, Hervé Leger (Maria Sharapova); Narciso Rodriguez, and Marc Jacobs (Sean Avery)
