Watch Theyskens Theory Spring 2012 Fashion Show. 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.

Over the last decade MODTV has filmed backstage and reported on many of Olivier Theysken’s collections for both Rochas and Nina Ricci. But in 2006 we were granted exclusive access while he prepared on one of his collections for Rochas. It’s a rare look at Olivier in action.

Allure Backstage Spring 2008 makeup trend. Colorful shadows  Bright eyes—in nearly every shade of the rainbow—run the gamut from soft to full-on glittery. Nothing says spring more than color which is why this trend is our number one pick for the top trend of the season. Makeup artists dreamed in color this season, dabbing eyes with nearly every shade of the rainbow. Some stuck to a wash of pink and orange on the lids, while others rimmed all around the eyes in energetic shades of green, purple and blue.

Charlotte Tilbury used turquoise glitter on the eyes at Missoni,  “we’re doing something a bit more rock and roll, something a little bit more Kate Moss, a little bit more destroyed makeup. At Michael Kors Dick Page used a violet liner, yellow gold highlight on the brow bone, orange on the outer corner of the eye, pink on the lid “so it looks like a little fruit salad effect”.

Michael Kors said he loved the colors “Dick and I sat down and said this is all about this juicy face, so we are really playing with more color on the eye than we ever have done before. This collection is really about celebrating sunshine and warm weather – optomistic in a word”.
