Kendall Jenner takes us backstage at Fendi 90th Anniversary Couture show by Karl Lagerfeld at the legendary Trevi Fountain in Rome.

“It’s an amazing, timeless brand, every piece you see you can tell there is love and care put into it” Kendall said before the show. “I just think the brand is just so amazing, every time I get to work with them and I walk in and see the clothing, the shoes, bags and the accessories I’m always in awe”.

Karl Lagerfeld has been Creative Director for Fendi for over 50 years and explained the historic show at the Trevi Fountain was inspired by Danish illustrator Kay Nielsen “there is a kind of fairytale story because the theme of the collection is “Legends and Fairytales” it’s a feeling and a mood”.

The models walked on a plexiglass catwalk across the water with the famous fountains and pools form the 1960’s film, La Dolce Vita. This was the first fashion show to take place at the Italian landmark.

“In 2012 Fendi restored the Trevi Fountain, and we thought could you imagine if we could do a show here” Silvia Fendi explained backstage before the show, “it’s the best way to celebrate 90 years of stories”.

Stella McCartney talks to us about her new fragrance ‘POP’ and the campaign starring Grimes, Madonna’s daughter Lourdes Leon, Kenya Kinski-Jones and Amandla Stenberg.

“In the world of beauty, I really want to create something that feels really now, that pops right now.” I was just really excited; I have two young girls, and I have alot of younger friends, and they really inspired me.  The cap is incorporated into the bottle, you can throw it into your bag, it’s a beautiful fresh, vibrant scent.

POP is the third fragrance for McCartney, and this one is aimed at millennials. “I wanted the casting to be young women about to pop who have something to say.  Stella chose girls that are young, modern and  I want the world of beauty for the next generation to be something a bit more that we can identify with.”

The film for POP was directed by Melina Matsoukas and features four very different young girls.  Performance artist Lourdes ‘Lola Leon’, Madonna’s daughter; musician Grimes, actress and campaigner Amandla Stenberg and animal activist Kenya Kinski-Jones.

Kenya told us she loved being in the film and said it was an unforgettable experience and so about now “the spirit of Pop is being in the moment, about being apologetic about who you are.”

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 signature label in 2009 and was appointed Creative Director of Mugler in 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 handwriting – whatever I do it has a little bit of that futuristic touch,” David Koma told me backstage at 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.

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 –

” I put this collection together thinking about the glamorous girl, the glamorous people and they are around and they want to be beautiful. This is my final arrival – I want to make women look beautiful. I always loved glamour because I love a woman being beautiful, this is in my blood. 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

I love beauty, it’s not my fault” – Valentino

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.”
