What's the more obnoxious nightclub crowd: Bridge & Tunnel trash or fashion poseurs? put the question to Manhattan's bouncers as they grapple with the hordes of achingly hip party-goers who've descended on New York's hotspots for Fashion Week.

"You'll get a whole lot more attitude from fashion folks," a guy named Tony Montana (seriously) from Plumm says. "But I think that mostly comes from their desire to be noticed." (Montana's go-to pacifying move? "Even if a girl's style is horrible, you tell the girl she is wearing an 'interesting' dress.")

A bouncer from Room Service agrees. "People coming from fashion shows are like, 'I'm this model' or 'I'm this photographer.' But I have to tell them, 'Hey, sorry, my subscription to Vogue ran out last month. Now get back on line.'"
