Go backstage with Top model Karlie Kloss, the 19 year old American beauty who insiders like photographer Mario Testino say is destined to be fashion’s next supermodel. The last year has been extraordinary journey for Karlie Kloss and we captured some of those moments in this exclusive behind the scenes video.

In the last year Karlie graduated from highschool, walked in every top designer fashion show from Dior to Lanvin, appeared in numerous editorials and ad campaigns and was shot for the cover of LIFE Magazine by fashion photographer Gabrielle Revere.  Karlie is the first model to appear on LIFE’s cover in over 20 years, a true honor for this former ballet dancer who grew up in St Louis and is represented by Next Models.

We followed Karlie behind the scenes at New York, Milan and Paris Spring 2012 fashion week, and caught up with her backstage at  Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show to find out what life has been like for this icon in the making.  Watch our exclusive behind the scenes fashion video featuring interviews with Mario Testino, Gabrielle Revere and hair stylist Sam McKnight.

Balmain Spring 2014 backstage with top models Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Georgia May Jagger, Karlie Kloss and Balmain Creative Director Olivier Rousteing at Paris Fashion Week.

The Balmain girl for Spring 2014 is sporty and relaxed, and the look is all about reality which explains why the hair look by Sam McKnight and makeup look by Tom Pecheux was so minimal.  As designer Olivier Rousteing explained after the show “my goal was showing the reality of this girl at 9am – the girl has to feel good, hot and cool and relaxed in every piece that they wear”.

Get an exclusive look at DSquared2 Spring 2014 backstage with designers Dean and Dan Caten, top models Catherine McNeil, Lindsey Wixson and Josephine Skriver backstage at Milan Fashion Week. #TikiGirl was the name designers Dean and Dan Caten gave to their 50′s beach party themed show for Spring 2014. The set was a Polynesian paradise complete with a sand runway, “we’re storytellers, we’re showmen and this is what gets us going” they said about their high production spectacle.

DSquared2 Spring 2014 show featured a bevy of beach party babes featuring some of The Society Management’s top models Catherine McNeil, Lindsey Wixson and Josephine Skriver.  As Dean and Dan explained their glamorous collection is a 1950′s twirl, “they’re short, they’re colorful, they’re couture“.

Makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury gave the models a gorgeous goddess glow and finished the look with Morange lipstick by Mac.  Hair stylist Sam McKnight used plenty of Pantene Volume hair spray to create 50′s inspired bouffant “Americana” hairdos.

Get an exclusive look backstage at Fendi Fall 2013 with designer Karl Lagerfeld and top models Cara Delevingne, Karlie Kloss and Daphne Groeneveld.  “It’s 21st century punk revisited” Karl Lagerfeld said backstage after the stunning show.

Kiki Montrparnasse, the french model and actress was the inspiration for the look makeup artist Peter Philips created.  Peter went for a deep purple on the lip and used Chanel Le Rouge Velvet lipstick in “La Provecante” and Chanel Vendeta on the nails to give the models “a rebelious, chic, sophisticated look”.  Sam McKnight gave all the models a mohawk braid and then added a piece of dyed fox fur on top for a dramatic effect. The models looked so cool and had a savage, almost Mad Max look about them.

This Fendi collection by Karl Lagerfeld was brilliant and it all came perfectly together with the soundtrack by Michel Gaubert featuring the track “Take Me Baby” by Jimi Tenor.  Watch our Fendi Fall 2013 backstage video here now and get an exclusive all-access backstage look with Karl Lagerfeld, Cara Delevingne, Karlie Kloss, Daphne Groeneveld, Etienne Russo, Peter Philips and Sam McKnight.  Discover more at Fendi.Com.

Watch our exclusive fashion video DSquared2 Spring 2013 backstage with Cara Delevingne and special guest Michael Buble. DSquared2 designers Dean and Dan Caten were inspired by the 90′s supermodel Linda Evangelista and photographs by Peter Lindbergh shot in 1991. As Cara Delevingne told us backstage before opening the show working with Dean and Dan is a dream,  ‘”It’s just about being sexy – they always want alot of energy,  and they just give it and your bring it – it’s real team work“.

The beauty look created by makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury and hair stylist Sam McKnight perfectly captured the look of supermodel 90′s glamour.  As Charlotte explained backstage the DSquared2 Spring 2013 makeup look, “is very Peter Lindbergh 90′s – it’s an almond smoky eye with a strong arched brow, contoured face with Mac Spice Lip Liner and Fleshpot Beige lips“.  Sam wanted the hair to look modern so he made it shiny and super straight.   The result was stunning – the girls looked sexy, cool and superhot.

Go backstage at Fendi Spring 2013 with designer Karl Lagerfeld, top model Cara Delevingne, makeup artist Peter Philips and hairstylist Sam McKnight.

Karl Lagerfeld always puts on a great show and his Fendi collections are always so modern, fresh and young. The inspiration for Fendi Spring 2013 was Memphis – the huge furniture movement of the 1980′s.  To capture that spirt hair stylist Sam McKnight created sharp aerodynamic hair that perfectly complimented the geometric clothes.

Peter Philips makeup brief was to include the colors of the collection, so he used the fabrics from the collection and glued it under the eyes.   As designer Karl Lagerfeld explained backstage after the show “It’s a total look. I have a vision – I have so many references in my mind – it’s like a huge Google storage in my mind, it’s  just something I felt.  It’s something very Italian, very Milano“.

We are in love with the the Fendi Spring collection especially all the cool accessories- from the new sunglasses to the shoes and designer Sylvia Fendi’s updated version of iconic Fendi Baguette bag.  Watch our fashion video and backstage at Fendi Spring 2013 here now.   Discover more online at Fendi.Com.

Go backstage at Paris fashion week and get the Look of Balmain by makeup artist Tom Pecheux and hair stylist Sam McKnight.  Olivier Rousteing’s fall 2013 collection for Balmain was electrifying – the broad shouldered jackets and dresses were full of embellishments and bold color so the beauty look was natural.

As Sam McKnight admitted backstage “the look of Balmain is a lot tougher this season”.  Slicked back, masculine hair gave the models a powerful rock and roll edge.  Makeup artist Tom Pecheux gave the models matte skin and well groomed stronger eyebrows – a look that has become a real trend for fall 2013.  Check out our Balmain Fall 2013 Backstage photo gallery here now.
