Why Supermodels Love Mugler + David Koma’s Futuristic Vision

Supermodels Doutzen Kroes, Taylor Hill and Isabeli Fontana tell us why they are in love with Mugler and Creative Director David Koma's futuristic vision and modern sense of style."He's an incredible designer and super modern and feminine at the same time and the fact that he's so sweet and nice is just a bonus" Doutzen explained backstage.

David Koma is 29 years old, was born in Georgia and is now based in London. He showcased his first collection at the age of 15 after studying Fine Art in Saint Petersburg. Kona graduated in 2009 with distinction in MA Fashion from Central Saint Martins, he launched his own signature label in 2009 and has been Creative Director of Mugler since 2013. His sexy, ultra body-contouring look appeals to women who want to look cool and confident, but with an edge. "It's not on purpose, it's just kind of my hand writing - what ever I do it has a little bit of that futuristic touch", David Koma told me after his Mugler Spring 2016 show at Paris Fashion Week.  

Some of the world's hottest models from Karlie Kloss to Georgia May Jagger have walked in David Koma's Mugler shows, and they are all his fans, "it's one of the main reasons I'm a fashion designer and why I want to do my job is them. Every time I see them walking in my show and being around wearing my clothes, really it inspires me and makes me want to more".

Valentino is one of the great legends of fashion who has been making women look beautiful for over 45 years. We went backstage at Valentino's Fall 2007 show in Paris to find out why he says "beauty is in his blood".

Valentino Garavani's Fall 2007 collection was inspired by a forties movie star, it's "old Hollywood" glamour, a look that has really defined this designer's extraordinary career -

You know what do I have to do - it's beauty, like I love a beautiful lady, I love a beautiful dog, I love a beautiful piece of furniture

The Look of Esteban Cortazar Fall 2016

Get the Supermodel look: go backstage at Esteban Cortazar Fall 2016 with hair stylist and Moroccanoil Creative Director Peter Gray at Paris Fashion Week.

"We went back to gel", Peter explained, "It was something quintessentially supermodel that we have not seen for ages. I feel that Esteban's collections really harken back to that era of the supermodel - they've got that fabulousness about them".

"I'm using the Moroccanoil Gel on one side of the head with a side parting, we did this little rope twist, which was intended to separate the two sides of the woman. And then the side is a little softer and more textured, bushed a little bit looser so it flowed a little bit as the girls walked".

Esteban Cortezar said that he wanted the girls to look fresh and beautiful, "With the hair we just wanted to take it away from the face, accentuate the neck, accentuate the pieces the way they were constructed. With the collection we started with this idea a jock strap - so all those elastics came from that, in the way they were in some of the clothes - these male gymnastics references came into play."

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.

GIGI HADID Backstage New York Fashion Week: ANNA SUI SS 2016

Gigi Hadid talks to us backstage at New York Fashion Week and tells us why she adores fashion designer Anna Sui and what her role as spokesmodel for Maybelline New York means to her.

“I grew up watching Maybelline commercials and singing the jingle in my bathroom and doing my makeup and to now be able to be in the commercials and be on the screen with the girls singing along too is amazing. I genuinely love the brand and the products and that was something really important to me. It’s very important to me when I make all my deals I genuinely want to be able to represent things that I love because I won’t be able to do it as well if I don’t love the brand, so I’m very happy to be a Maybelline girl.

My message to young girls about beauty is - this sounds so cliche but all the supermodels that I’ve met along the way - it doesn’t matter how beautiful they were, even if I looked up to them for my entire life it always ruined it if they were not nice or not genuine. My favorite girl is Candice Swanepoel who I grew up loving my entire life. Candice is the most genuine, kind person and that makes me love her even more."

Chanel Fall 2016 ft Karl Lagerfeld, Willow Smith, Pharrell

Karl Lagerfeld takes us inside his Chanel Fall 2016/17 "Front Row Only" Ready to Wear Collection at Paris Fashion Week where all 3,000 guests were invited to sit front row. The decor was reminiscent of the salons at 31 Rue Cambon, where Gabrielle Chanel presented her designs.

"People complain they can't see the clothes because they are too far away; this season everyone is front row"  - Karl Lagerfeld.

We loved all the new accessories. Boaters, helmets and riding hats in tweed, felt or leather were fastened by straps adorned with byzantine crosses, pearls or camellias. Models walked down the runway in boots with horizontal lacing or loafers with heels that accentuated a modern attitude.  Witty accessories such as cat cuffs, emoticon jewelry, and bobbin and coat-hanger handbags punctuated the silhouette.

Post show, Karl Lagerfeld told us about the gorgeous beauty look of the show by Tom Pecheux, and why he loves working with the hottest "models of the moment" Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid.  Featuring interviews with Chanel ambassadress Willow Smith and music mogul Pharrell Williams.
