Watch our exclusive film on Burberry Backstage 2018 with makeup artist Wendy Rowe and top model Cara Delevingne at Christopher Bailey’s final Burberry Collection.  Some of the world’s iconic supermodels from Naomi Campbell to Kate Moss, Edie Campbell and Adowa Aboah were there to celebrate this seminal night in the brand’s history.

Wendy Rowe has been working with Christopher Bailey for 16 years. As the Artistic Consultant for Burberry Beauty, she creates the makeup looks for the fashion shows and advertising campaigns and designs the beauty range. Wendy’s role is all about taking Christopher’s vision for Burberry and translating it for the British woman. As she explains backstage, “this year it was all about creating the purest form of the models’ own beauty; just showing off what they were naturally born with”.

Supermodel Cara Delevingne loves Wendy’s natural, cool-girl approach to beauty and admits that she as “taught her so much about makeup”. British Model of the year Adowa Aboah adores Rowe because “she knows how to bring out your inner beauty, everything she does makes you look better”.

I met Wendy Rowe at her first Burberry show in 2002 and have filmed backstage with her for over a decade. So when Wendy asked me to come to London to film behind the scenes with her at Christopher Bailey’s final show I was honoured.

Watch the emotions unfold as Wendy Rowe takes you backstage for Christopher Bailey’s last season at the helm after 17 years heading up Burberry.  Discover  more about Wendy on her beauty blog WendyRowe.Com

Empowered. Strong. Confident. These words exemplify how it feels to be a part of the ferocious clique of supermodels, “It” girls, and starlets that makeup Olivier Rousteing’s Balmain Army. Watch MODTV’s exclusive behind-the-scenes film for Allure Magazine featuring Olivier Rousteing and his Balmain Army – Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, Adriana Lima, Karlie Kloss, Jourdan Dunn, Bhumika Arora and Josephine Skriver.

Backstage at Balmain Gigi Hadid told me she feels stronger when she wears Balmain and can feel the brand’s 31-year-old creative director Olivier Rousteing’s energy in his creations.

“Obviously I love Olivier as a person, but as a designer, I think he is so awesome. He always brings a different element to the fashion week, and there is nothing like his pieces. I feel like I fall in love with a different part of every look. I just slip on his clothes, and I feel stronger.”

Gigi who is currently dating singer Zayn Malik – believes the French-born Olivier Rousteing hand picks powerful women, he wants to grace the catwalk in his fashion show and to be a part of the Balmain Army. “He really picks girls that he thinks has a strong look, he wants beautiful, powerful women, and I think that energy we feel from him and his clothes.”

And fellow model Jourdan Dunn, 26, credits the star for standing up for diversity and including women of all ethnicities in his presentations and campaigns. “What Olivier stands for? He stands for diversity. He is all about championing that always, in the shows, and his collections, he is showing women of all ethnicity, it is a strong thing to be a part of. You definitely feel that when you’re walking down the runway in these beautiful garments, you feel empowered.”

Victoria’s Secret top model Adriana Lima is grateful Olivier is open to embracing the modern woman with his designs and commercials. “I feel grateful when I see designers like Olivier embracing the modern woman.” Watch our exclusive Balmain video now and read the story on Allure.Com

Watch our exclusive video at Chanel Fall 2017 backstage with designer Karl Lagerfeld, supermodel Cara Delevingne, Lily-Rose Depp, Pharrell Williams and Lily Allen.

This season, Karl Lagerfeld projects Chanel into space. At the Launch Center N°5 in the heart of the Grand Palais, near the foot of an immense 121 feet-high rocket, 90 models reach for the stars wearing boots that glitter like diamond constellations and headbands embroidered with crystals or faux pearls. “It’s a journey through the sky, to the heart of constellations, in the wake of the astronaut Thomas Pesquet,” explains the designer.

The show was simply out of this world! There were astronaut prints and planet-shaped minaudières, but Lagerfeld also sent out subtle nods to the great era of space exploration, in the form of mod ’60s shift dresses and cap-toe go-go boots. Top models Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner walked in the show, one of the hottest collections at Paris Fashion Week.

The iconic tweed suit is transformed with subtle trompe-l’oeil: square sleeves appear to emerge from a superimposed vest, while wrists are covered with long, silvery fingerless gloves. Beneath tweed skirts, dresses and coats, Bermuda shorts peek out in black, white, silver and grey punctuated with hints of color. Flashing with electric blue and purple, slender silhouettes sparkle with sequins, iridescent thread and crystal embroidery, as well as metallic and beaded braids.
