Tommy Ton Backstage

Tommy Ton is one of the fashion world's hottest image makers and street style photographers, and after a decade of capturing Fashion Month first for his former blog Jak & Jil, Style.Com and GQ.Com. - today the 31-year-old talented Canadian announced he is breaking away from publications to launch his own website, TommyTon.com, which officially went live on Wednesday.

Watch our exclusive behind the scenes film and see how Tommy Ton's passionate eye and love of fashion has made him the most influential street style photographer working today. A self described "fashion paparazzi" Tommy documents the exotic trends, the colorful accessories and the stylish people at fashion month.

As Tommy explains the internet and the digital age has given people the chance to become a working professional overnight, "the fashion show is the new red carpet, everybody wants to be a part of this world, it's not so exclusive anymore. With the whole boom of the internet and blogging and twitter, people have become so connected to each other - it's a community that has grown so fast."  

MODTV's cameras captured Tommy in action from Milan to Paris and we spoke with some of his friends and fashion bloggers including Bryan Boy, Scott Schuman aka The Sartorialist, Garance Dore, fashion editor Anna Dello Russo and street style photographer Nam, StreetFSN.  What's life of the hottest street style blogger really like?

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.
