In Paris top model Arizona Muse takes us backstage and shows us how to get the Chloé’s ‘cool girl’ look for Summer 2012. For 60 years now Chloé has come to define the meaning of effortless french style.

A bit 70’s bohemian, a bit rock star girlfriend – the Chloé look is always just that natural, chic, confident but cool. MAC Makeup artist Lucia Pieroni and hair stylist Eugene Soulieman show us how to get the Chloé look for summer. It’s about a natural beauty – which means, nude tones on the eye and lip for that healthy glow and thick long hair with a slight wave. Think Jane Birkin.

This was British designer Clare Waight Keller’s first collection for Chloé and she kept true to the brand’s sportswear roots, as she explained “it’s about fluidity and femininity, but boyish”.  We love the look of this show and it’s just the way you want to look in summer. Watch our Chloe Spring Summer 2012 backstage video here now.

Backstage at DSquared2 Spring Summer 2012 it was fashion meets rock and roll; the inspiration of their fashion show – the Glastonbury Music Festival. Designers Dean and Dan Caten know how to create an unforgettable experience and for Spring Summer 2012 they brought the Glastonbury festival experience to life from the music to the muddy runway. As all the top models told us backstage – this is definitely the hottest fashion show of Milan Fashion week.

Dean and Dan confess they were inspired by every glam rock chic from Kate Moss to Beyonce for their DSquared2 Spring Summer 2012 collection. MAC Makeup aritst Charlotte Tilbury layered on the eye glitter and hair stylist Sam McKnight used Pantene Aqua Light leave in conditioner to give that “two day old slept in look”, and to make sure every model looked individual and cool.

Dean and Dan know how to make clothes that you actually want to wear and their spectacular fashion shows transport you to a place where you dream to be. From their cool jeans and t-shirts, gorgeous leather jackets to the hot beachwear this collection rocked.

Giambattista Valli takes us inside his Spring Summer 2012 collection with top models Ginta Lapina and Jac at fashion week in Paris. “I love the reality of women” Valli explained to me after the show – “it’s all about natural beauty”.

Giambattista Valli is an Italian designer who was born in Rome, Italy. His collections both Ready to Wear and Haute Couture are shown in Paris.

For his Spring Summer 2012 Ready to Wear Collection Giambattista Valli was inspired by a mix of memories, cultures and an idea about a nomadic woman. “This woman is a traveller” explained Orlando Pita backstage, “there is a beach texture in the back, but we slicked it down on the front with gel, because the hair had to also look like she was coming out of the water”.

The makeup look Val Garland created was a healthy, athletic, androgynous girl. It’s all about a brushed up groomed eyebrow, a reflective color on the lid and lip balm on the lips”. As Giambattista explained, “if you feel beautiful, you don’t even need a hair do, that is the feeling”.
