New York Fashion Week is undisputedly the chicest week of the year, where celebrities, models, editors and industry insiders gather together to take in incredible runway shows from our favorite designers.

From the breathtaking looks to the inspiring beauty trends and street style photos, the seven-day event is filled with powerful networking and fierce fashion from morning to night.

And while we love to ogle the gorgeous new clothes sauntering down the catwalk, we're also mesmerized by the major stars who come out to support the industry and sit front row at all of the notable presentations. 

Wondering what these fashionistas pack in their bags to survive the chaotic schedule of photo opportunities, runway shows, after parties and more?

We chatted with a few style mavens including Jessica Alba, Molly Sims, Selita Ebanks and Jourdan Dunn to get the scoop on the essentials they don't leave home without before heading to Lincoln Center.

From designer handbags (Givenchy and Céline won rave reviews for their roomy sizes and functional pockets) to roll-up ballet flats to save your soles when no one's looking, the must-haves mentioned were smart, savvy and still totally stylish.

Hand sanitizer, breath mints, blotting paper and the perfect shade of lip gloss also ranked high on the packing list for these gorgeous gals.

Check out what these fashionistas had to say!
