Soon to Be on Repeat: The NYFW Playlist

You know how music can make or break a mood? It can also do the same for a fashion show. So just like the makeup and hair choices for a runway show, a lot of thought goes into the songs that accompany the looks. And rightfully so. Here’s what we’ve been tapping our feet to this week.

Get Lucky” by Daft Punk, featuring Pharrell Williams

Young and Beautiful” by Lana Del Rey

Pour It Up” by Rihanna

Applause” by Lady Gaga

Behind the Scenes We Go: Backstage Beauty at SKINGRAFT

Sure, clothes are the big draw at New York Fashion Week (both in and out of the tents) – but without the right hair and makeup, a look just wouldn’t be complete. Take SKINGRAFT’s show, for example. The models’ minimalist makeup and wet, tousled hair really drove home the line’s edgy yet sporty aesthetic. To see how it all came together, I went backstage to talk to the artists behind the beauty.

Outside the Tents: White-Hot Blazers at Fashion Week

Labor Day, what? This week outside the tents at Lincoln Center, winter-white blazers were popping up everywhere. Bloggers, editors, socialites – all wearing some version of the crisp cream jacket, a look many a magazine predicted we’d see this fall.

And the trend’s must-have accessory? Why, a Tide to Go pen, of course.

Behind the Scenes We Go: Backstage Beauty at Korto Momolu

The energy at Fashion Week is palpable. So much thought and creativity goes into each aspect – and there’s no exception for the hairstyles that hit the runways. I was able to get a backstage view of the prep at Korto Momolu‘s show. A designer and Project Runway alum, Momolu’s concept was all about good and evil. And the hair for the show? It was also a combination of sweet and spicy. The highly perched fishtail braid was an unexpected, edgy twist on a girlhood favorite.

High-Fashion Polish: Colorblocked Nails Straight from NYFW

Fashion Week is all about details, from the brilliance behind the hair and makeup trends to every seam and stitch on the runway. And one thing that should most definitely not be overlooked? Those to-die-for manicures that have stolen the spotlight. So take note of these tips. They’re straight from celebrity manicurist Lisa Logan, whose client roster includes such mani mavens as Beyoncé and Mary J. Blige.

For the Christian Siriano NYFW show, Lisa used products and colors by Red Carpet Manicure, an at-home LED gel manicure system. So all the looks weren’t just runway-ready, they were also completed backstage. No salon trip needed.
