As New York Fashion Week kicks off tomorrow, there are many things to have your eyes on. There’s the runway itself, whether live-streamed or in front of your eyes. There’s your Instagram feed and its crappy #regrams speckled with quality backstage beauty shots (don’t mention it) and there’s the VIP-studded front row.

But every cloud has a silver lining, and this one’s made from Beyoncé mom dates, retro-glam Joan Collins, old school Winona Ryder and so much more.
See below for a decade of New York Fashion Week’s best front row moments – plus one extra bonus year, because otherwise you would have missed out on Britney Spears popping bubble gum in mould-hued double denim.
