Pat McGrath, MaxFactor Global Creative Director shows us how she created the seductive makeup look at Diane Von Furstenberg Fall Winter 2015 fashion show backstage at New York Fashion Week.

Pat makes the models look beautiful at every show she does, but we’re really loving the dark smokey eye she did this season for DVF.  To create the look Pat used the Smokey Eye Drama Kit from MaxFactor and to keep all the models skin looking fresh she used Miracle Match Foundation. This is a timeless look no matter what the season – a smokey eye never goes out of style.  Check out our makeup tutorial video with Pat McGrath here and for more info visit MaxFactor.Co.Uk.

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.

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?
