Empowered. Strong. Confident. These words exemplify how it feels to be a part of the ferocious clique of supermodels, “It” girls, and starlets that make up 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 Angel 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

Supermodel Karlie Kloss gives us an exclusive look at Jason Wu Spring 2014 backstage at New York Fashion Week.   “I want women to feel beautiful, adored and like a million dollars“, Jason Wu said moments after the show.  That’s exactly how Karlie Kloss said she felt in the stunning finale dress which was “wedding worthy” and one of the most beautiful gowns she’s ever worn.

The Spring 2014 collection is classic Jason Wu – sophisticated, young and chic. Hair stylist Odile Gilbert‘s slick ponytail gave the models a modern, polished edge. Makeup artist Diane Kendal’s smoky gold, “show stopping” glittery eye perfectly complimented the soft, sand colored clothes. As Jason explained “it felt like all the jewelry she needed – less is more“.  This is the second season Jason Wu has collaborated with Lancome USA to produce a limited edition makeup collection based on the look of his show which is available at Saks Fifth Avenue.

Jason Wu summed up his gorgeous Spring collection “It’s good for the moment, it feels modern and it feels expensive“. Featuring backstage interviews with Jason Wu, Karlie Kloss, Jourdan Dunn, Diane Kendal and Odile Gilbert. Discover more at JasonWuStudio.Com.

While Dunn has appeared previously in beauty campaigns, including those for YSL and Burberry, this is in fact her first signing as a beauty ambassador and it’s “an honor,” she says; “I am proud to say that I am a Maybelline girl and hopefully I can make people feel the same way I did when I saw the advertisements growing up. The brand imagery is always beautiful and positive. To now be a part of that is a dream come true!”

“Jourdan’s look, style and positive energy are perfect for the Maybelline New York brand,” said Jerome Bruhat, Global Brand President of Maybelline New York. “She truly reflects Maybelline’s vision of global beauty.” Last week, it was announced that Dutch model Marloes Horst is a brand spokesmodel as well. Look out for Jourdan’s new Maybelline ads this month.

Go backstage at Jason Wu Fall 2013 with top models Cara Delevingne, Jourdan Dunn, Daphne Groeneveld and Jessica Stam and find out why Jason Wu is one of the most buzzed about designers at New York Fashion Week. On Friday afternoon, even with threats of a severe snowstorm about to hit the city – it was still a full house at his show on the Upper East side.

As Cara Delevingne told me backstage – “this is really the show that opens NY Fashion Week…Jason is such a sweet guy, I just love doing his show – it’s always so elegant but cool”. All of the models feel the same way about Jason – they adore him because he knows how to make each one of them feel beautiful.

Jason Wu is only 30 years old. In just 6 years since launching his business he has become one of the most important designers working in American fashion. Originally born in Taipei, he was raised in Vancouver, Canada and he now owns a very successful design studio in New York. He is First Lady Michelle Obama’s designer of choice and created both of her  inaugural gowns, which helped put him on the international map.

For Fall 2013 Jason Wu celebrated the beauty of a woman – focusing on femininity and strength. As he explained to me “I really wanted to propose the idea of femininity as seen through my eyes – it wasn’t about a complex concept or over reaching idea – it was about the idea of a woman – feminine clothes that women want to wear“.

The collection was a knockout, full of seductive wearable pieces that have become his signature. Watch the Jason Wu Fall 2013 Fashion Video here now and discover more online at JasonWuStudio.com
