Get Gorgeous: The look of Missoni Spring Summer 2012

Go backstage at Missoni Spring Summer 2012 with designer Angela Missoni and get the look of this sexy, colorful Mediterranean inspired collection. "It's alot of fun - we're back to sexy", Margherita Missoni told me backstage before the show.

The models were supposed to look like they had been dancing all night, so artist Lucia Pieroni used Mac highlighter to give the models that sexy glow. Really big bushy eye brows and a nude lip with a little bit of shine finished the look - the result was gorgeous. Hair stylist Eugene Souleiman used several styling products by Wella to give the models a three day old "dirty, sexy look". "This is not a pristine woman, this is a woman who lives," Eugene explained backstage.

Top models Nyasha Matonhodze, Danielle Z and Alison Nix take us behind the scenes. Watch our Missoni Spring 2013 fashion video here now and check out our backstage photo gallery by photographer Robert Fairer.

Chloé’s “Cool Girl” Look for Summer 2012

In Paris top model Arizona Muse takes us backstage and shows us how to get the Chloé 'cool girl' look for Summer 2012. For 60 years now Chloé has come to define the meaning of effortless french style.

A bit 70's bohemian, a bit rock star girlfriend - the Chloé look is always just that natural, chic, confident but cool. MAC Makeup artist Lucia Pieroni and hair stylist Eugene Soulieman show us how to get the Chloé look for summer. It's about a natural beauty - which means, nude tones on the eye and lip for that healthy glow and thick long hair with a slight wave. Think Jane Birkin.

This was British designer Clare Waight Keller's first collection for Chloé and she kept true to the brand's sportswear roots, as she explained "it's about fluidity and femininity, but boyish".  We love the look of this show and it's just the way you want to look in summer. Watch our Chloe Spring Summer 2012 backstage video here now.

Prabal Gurung Spring Summer 2012 Backstage

Nicki Minaj wasn't the only one blown away by Prabal Gurung's sexy Spring Summer 2012 Collection in New York. We agree - this was one powerful fashion show. As Prabal explained to me backstage "It's sexy, tough, confident and at the same time sensual".

Prabal Gurung's collection is exploding with color and the show was inspired by Nobuyoshi Araki sensual flowers series which Prabal incorporated into all those gorgeous prints. Makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury said Prabal wanted the women to feel powerful and intoxicating which is why she drenched the models lips in five layers of pink, "it's like a burst of a flower".

Find out why Nicki Manaj, and top models Karlie Kloss and Magdalena Frackowiak can't get enough of Prabal Gurung in our Spring 2012 fashion video.

Louis Vuitton Spring Summer 2012 Backstage

Sumptuous and pretty.  Louis Vuitton Spring Summer 2012 collection perfectly captures the soft, romantic look of the season.  Designer Marc Jacobs is so inspiring and he knows how to create the "wow" factor by staging shows that are full of fantasy and great fashion.

The models a the Louis Vuitton show looked like fairy tale princesses as they sat on the white carrousel in their embellished sorbet colored dresses.  The show was beautiful and just out of this world.  It's Mark Jacobs love of beauty and fashion that really comes through at every Vuitton collection he creates.

As Marc explained to me backstage after the show, "I love fashion so much, we don't do this because we have to - we do this out of love - it's not for a paycheck - it's done from a place of passion.  Nobody needs fashion - it's a luxury.  Nobody needs fashion, they want fashion - it sort of pulls at your heart when it works".
