The tents at Bryant Park are being disassembled, and socialites everywhere are getting a foot rub. New York Fashion Week has come to a close.

This season brought bright colors and bold prints and even brighter, bolder celebrities.

From Lady Gaga performing at the Marc Jacobs afterparty to Mickey Rourke ogling "fat" models, stars—and the swarm of aggressive photographers that followed them—couldn't be avoided. So, we did what we do best. We mingled with them!

Taylor Swift told us what she thought of the Tommy Hilfiger show, Mad Men's January Jones explained Jon Hamm's appeal, and Emily Blunt talked about her hands (you know, the ones with the big rock from John Krasinski). And that's just the tip of the very swanky iceberg.

After that whole drama with Kanye West and the press bonanza that followed, Swift probably thought she could get a night off and check out Tommy Hilfiger's fashion show, which finished off Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in Bryant Park. But the photographers swarmed, and the reporters hounded and, well, at least she told us what she thought of the presentation. "I loved it," she said. "It was beautiful."

Jones was a bit more forthcoming earlier in the evening at Hilfiger's global flagship store opening on Fifth Avenue. "He's really really good looking," she said when trying to explain her costar's appeal. "He's like the old movie star, like Cary Grant, guy that exudes that masculinity, and I think that women want that. He's very charismatic. He's a good person, and he's just very smooth and very smart. And he's got good hair."

She doesn't exactly feel the same way about the crotch-skimming hemlines taking over Young Hollywood (yeah, you, Taylor Momsen). "I like to not have people see my private parts, so I do wear underwear, and I try to keep my hemlines a little bit longer than that," she confessed.

Blunt didn't bring her fiancé, to the American designer's soiree, but she did bring her hefty engagement ring. Despite everyone wanting to see the bauble, she admitted she hasn't been getting extra manicures. "I never take care of my nails," she laughed. "I have the worst nails."

At the G-Star Raw show earlier in the week, True Blood's Ryan Kwanten couldn't confirm or deny the romance rumors between Evan Rachel Wood and Alexander Skarsgard. "The only [couple] I know of is Stephen [Moyer] and Anna [Paquin], but my ear is not very close to the ground, so I'm not really into the who's-dating-who kind of thing," he said. "I wish I could divulge something, but I'm hopeless." (He's too cute to be truly hopeless.)

At Christian Siriano's show, not only did Project Runway's Tim Gunn swear he owns a few T-shirts, but a svelte-looking 3rd Rock from the Sun actress Kristen Johnston promised she has no style. "I'm the most nonfashion person alive," she said. "Honestly, I buy really nice, basic, simple pieces that last forever. I like things that are French, shopping, you know. And then like the fun cheesy stuff, like the trendy stuff. I'll go to like, well I haven't gone to Forever 21, but I go to H&M or whatever."

When asked about her hot bod, she practically overshared. "I do not have anorexia or an eating disorder," she blurted. "This is what my body was when I did 3rd Rock, and then I came to New York and was completely debauched and ate and drank every night after a play and just, you know, lived a naughty lifestyle, which shall remain nameless. So it was about getting healthy."

In case you forgot, Nicky Hilton Rothschild also told us what she really thinks of Paris' boyfriend, Doug Reinhardt, Eclipse newbie Jack Huston shared tales from the set while costar Kellan Lutz talked Robsten, Michael Douglas liberated a few Liberace secrets, The Bachelorette's Jillian Harris spilled some wedding deets, and several leading lads debuted their new model girlfriends.

Finally, there were frocks. Expect to see thin mesh overlays, cutouts of all shapes and sizes and fun prints next spring. And don't throw out those metallics—gold and silver and everything shiny in between are big. See for yourself on MyStyle.com.
