Meet Kaia Gerber, Cindy Crawford’s 15-year-old daughter and modeling’s next big thing. She is the face of Marc Jacobs Beauty and the new face of the fragrance ‘Daisy’. We first met Kaia backstage at Public School  fashion show over a year ago. It was Kaia’s first New York Fashion Week and she was so excited to be there and happy to chat with us about her hot modeling career.

Kaia Gerber is signed with IMG Models globally and just shot the cover of Vogue Paris with her mom Cindy Crawford photographed by Mario Testino.  She also appears in campaigns for Alexander Wang Spring 2016 and Chrome Hearts and has also shot with Steven Meisel for Vogue Italia.

Paul Hanlon is one of fashion’s rising stars; this 39-year-old Brit creates the looks for Moschino, Giambattista Valli and Louis Vuitton and Gucci.  There is always a sense of rebellion and uniqueness to what Paul Hanlon creates.

Paul Hanlon’s signature style is to celebrate individuality – he says he doesn’t like “cookie cutter” looks where every girl on the runway looks the same.

“I always want my hair to feel that it has an emotion to it. You question how the girl got there. People don’t know me for doing glamorous hair. I like to see hair that you don’t see the technique in it, and then you question how it got there, where the girl’s come from. So there is always a tension to it and there’s something broken about it. I like to do the kind of hair where you can make it a little more personal because everybody is different. And where I’m based, in London, there’s a punk attitude; there’s a slight rebelliousness to what we consider beautiful.”

Designer Olivier Rousteing takes us backstage at his Balmain Spring 2017 Collection in Paris with  Gigi Hadid and his supermodel goddesses Josephine Skriver, Romee Strijd, Sara Sampaio, Doutzen Kroes and Isabeli Fontana. Hair by Sam McKnight. Makeup by Tom Pecheux.

Olivier Rousteing is on a high, with over 4.8 million followers on Instagram, he is a man who is on a mission to bring Balmain to a global audience. In June, news broke that Mayhoola, the investment group linked to the Qatari royal family, bought Balmain—just days before the fashion house’s menswear show in Paris, which will mean expansion and more stores opening around the world. “The Balmain Army has shed its armour,” he said. “Whatever I do, even if I cover up my girls, people can say it’s vulgar. But this is what it is. I think it’s really chic, really French. It’s Paris how I see it.”

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.

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.”

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”.
