Parisian Designer Olivier Theyskens moved to New York just over little over a year ago but he has already unlocked the secret to how cool American girls like to dress. For Olivier’s Theyskens Theory Spring 2012 collection it’s all about the perfect little jacket, a slouchy pant, a rock and roll heel and the look of nonchalance. With the very talented beauty team of makeup artist James Kaliardos and hair stylist Odile Gilbert, Olivier knows how to make his girl look irresistibly cool and chic. We went backstage to find out how to get the look.

New York designer Diane Von Furstenberg always wants women to feel sexy when they put on one of her dresses, but for Fall 2010 there was also a menswear influence, ” I always wanted to have a man’s life in a woman’s body” but she added “but you don’t want to forget being a woman”. We love the fact that Diane always keeps it real, and makes clothes that everyone can wear. It was also great to see one of our favorite models, Natalia Vodianova open and close the show.
At 33 Olivier Theyskens has been called one of the greatest designers of his generation. He was named CFDA’s international designer of the year in 2006, and has dressed some of Hollywood’s most stunning stars from Madonna to Jennifer Aniston.
