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

Designer Giambattista Valli told us he cast Gigi Hadid in his Spring 2016 show because he felt she embodies the spirit of his woman, “She’s perfectly beautiful, and so stunning and so real“.

American born Gigi Hadid is 20 years old and is signed to IMG models and is a social media superstar with over 7.2 million Instagram followers.  She has appeared in Sports Illustrated and is one of the faces of Maybelline New York.  During the recent Spring 2016 fashion month, Gigi walked in some of the world’s hottest designer fashion shows including Anna Sui, Tommy Hilfiger, Versace and Balmain.

Backstage at Giambattista Valli Spring 2016 show supermodel Gigi Hadid speaks to us about body-shaming on social media and the impact of the bold viral post that she recently shared with her Instagram followers.  Hadid had received numerous negative comments on the popular social media app, with some criticizing her curves, slightly jumpy walk and reality show pedigree.  On September 28th she defended herself with a passionate, heartfelt post on her Instagram feed:

“No, I don’t have the same body type as the other models in shows… You can make up all the reasons you think I am where I am, but really, I’m a hard worker that’s confident in myself, one that came at a time where the fashion industry was ready for a change.” @GigiHadid

We caught up with Gigi Hadid backstage at the Giambattista Valli show in Paris to find out more about her empowering message for women everywhere.

Want to know how supermodel Cara Delevingne always looks so chic and effortlessly cool?  Wendy Rowe, one of Cara’s favorite makeup artists talks to us about how get the nude beauty look that Cara is so famous for.

Wendy Rowe is an international makeup artist and the Creative Director of Burberry Beauty and has worked with Cara on all her Burberry Campaigns and is known in the industry as the Master of Nudes .  We went behind the scenes with Wendy and her good friend supermodel Anja Rubik to find out why she feels nude makeup can work for everyone

“Nudes are not just about browns – think greys, taupes, mauves, pinks, golds… it’s all about finding the right tonal nude shades that work for your skin tone and making the skin look alive by putting colour into the cheeks and lips. The secret to nudes is about using different shades and textures, blending everything softly so there are no hard lines – it’s more realistic than hard shapes or lines, and it suits everyone”

Every month Wendy shares her round-up of the season’s beauty must-haves on her beauty blog WendyRowe.Com.  For all the latest news follow Wendy on Twitter @wendyrowemakeup and on Instagram @wendyrowe
