ICYMI: Victoria's Secret Angels at Burning Man, Tom Ford's Latest & All-Star Setting Powders
While you likely spent your Labor Day Weekend atop a pool float, perhaps lamenting the fact that summer's nearly over, a particular segment of the fashion community swapped their local watering hole for Burning Man at Nevada's Black Rock Desert. In the interest of journalistic integrity, we'll admit that we aren't entirely sure what, exactly, Burning Man entails, but its Wikipedia summary sure makes it sound like a "Mad Max" cosplay operation — a place where rich, nearly naked hippies become one with art and the Earth and each other's nearly naked, dust-covered bodies.

Make your weekend last a little longer and jump into this visual tour through Black Rock City. We climbed Robot Heart and lived to tell the tale. It was a different burn from the others: learning a lot, being inspired, crying; the variety of feelings that I experienced was wider than ever.
