Chanel SS16 Backstage Karl Lagerfeld, Cara Delevingne

Chanel Spring Summer 2016 backstage with Karl Lagerfeld and supermodel Cara Delevingne in Paris. For Spring 2016 Karl Lagerfeld transformed the Grand Palais into a magnificent mock Chanel Airport complete with a baggage check, numbered gates, an arrivals board and baggage carts with double-C logos. Backstage post-show Karl explained why he was inspired by airports and the love of travel -

 "...even for expensive Ready-to-Wear and high fashion, you have to be inspired by daily life, clothes have to fit with the life of today, we are not creating something living in an ivory tower that has no relationship to reality "

We are in love with Karl's airport themed collection - especially all the chic accessories including the new Chanel "Coco Cabin Case" and the light up Velcro sandals. The beauty look at the show was all about the eyes - models came out wearing electric blue eyeshadow or giant mirrored sunglasses. If you are as obsessed with these Chanel sunglasses as we are check out the new Chanel Eyewear E-Commerce boutique launched online November 4th in the US.

For his finale bow Karl came out with his seven-year-old godson Hudson Kroenig (who was dressed as a pilot) and supermodel Cara Delevingne who is one of Karl's favorite models and close personal friend.  Watch our exclusive Chanel Spring Summer 2016 backstage video featuring top models Kendall Jenner and Cara Delevingne; interviews with Karl Lagerfeld, Kyle Anderson, Leigh Lezark, Liu Wen, Caroline de Maigret.

French designer Olivier Rousteing is 30 years old and has been the Creative Director of Balmain since 2011. In just four short years Olivier has brought a much-needed fresh take to the Balmain aesthetic and fueled an explosive growth in the brand's sales and popularity thanks in part to social media. Balmain now has over 2.6 million Instagram followers and Olivier Rousteing has over 1 million followers on his Instagram, the first French designer to do so. His social media presence and clout goes even further thanks to his circle of celebrity friends like Kanye West, Kim Kardashian, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, and Rihanna. The global launch of his Balmain collection for H&M has been Olivier's personal dream in the making.

"I want to talk to my generation, this is my main aim as a designer. H&M allows me the unique possibility of bringing everyone into the world of Balmain, get a piece of the dream and create a global #HMBalmaination: a movement of togetherness, fueled on a hashtag" 

Olivier has brought the couture feeling that Balmain is known for to his H&M capsule collection - "it's really a celebration of my couture pieces for Balmain, obviously I changed the techniques, I changed the beading to make it more affordable but I tried to keep the couture feeling".

Olivier said he wanted to launch the collection in New York City because "America is all about mix and diversity and this collection is all about mixité also - that's why I think America is going to love it...we're all about diversity and America is one of the most beautiful countries that is diverse - I'm really proud this collection is launched here in New York".  The Balmain x H&M collection by Olivier Rousteing will be available in H&M US stores and worldwide, as well as online, starting on November 5, 2015.

Gigi Hadid Speaks Out on Body-Shaming on Social Media

Gigi Hadid speaks to us about body-shaming on social media and the impact of the bold viral post that she recently shared with her 7.2 million Instagram followers.  Hadid had received numerous negative comments on the popular social media app, with some criticizing her curves, slightly jumpy walk and reality show pedigree.  On September 28th she defended herself with a passionate, heartfelt post on her Instagram feed:

“No, I don’t have the same body type as the other models in shows… You can make up all the reasons you think I am where I am, but really, I’m a hard worker that’s confident in myself, one that came at a time where the fashion industry was ready for a change.” @GigiHadid

American born Gigi Hadid is 20 years old and is signed to IMG models and is a social media superstar - she has appeared in Sports Illustrated and is one of the faces of Maybelline New York.  During the recent Spring 2016 fashion month Gigi walked in some of the world's hottest designer fashion shows including Anna Sui, Tommy Hilfiger, Versace and Balmain.

Designer Giambattista Valli told us he cast Gigi in his Spring 2016 show because he felt she embodies the spirt of his woman, "She's perfectly beautiful, and so stunning and so real".  We caught up with Gigi Hadid backstage at the Giambattista Valli show in Paris to find out more about her empowering message for women everywhere.

Marc Jacobs Spring 2014 Backstage

Watch our exclusive video and get an all access pass at Marc Jacobs Spring 2014 and go backstage with Cara Delevingne, Georgia May Jagger and Lily McMenamy and makeup artist Francois Nars at New York Fashion Week.

It's all about individual style at Marc Jacobs Spring 2014 and one look at his model casting and you instantly understood the message.  Even though all the models wore bleached out surfer punk wigs, it was impossible not to still notice the models of the moment - Cara Delevingne, Georgia May Jagger and Lily McMenamy (MJ current campaign girl).

Makeup artist Francois Nars gave the models a "slash of teal or ink blue eyeliner".  There was no blush, no lip, and the skin was kept very transparent.  As Francois Nars explained it "Marc always wants the girls to look a little decadent and "off".  He used NARS Blue Dahlia and Kaliste eye pencils (coming out in November) and tons of mascara to give the models that coo, downtown edge. The look was so cool and it worked perfectly with the clothes. Watch our exclusive Marc Jacobs Spring 2013 Backstage fashion video here now.
