From Hollywood glamour to classic evening chic and wet-look hair, step into another beauty realm backstage in New York

Zac Posen

Known for magnificent evening gowns and red carpet worthy creations, hair stylist Odile Gilbert conceived a silhouette of old Hollywood. Exquisite soft waves, and curls that emphasised volume, and there was a lot going on behind the scenes – each model used multiple clips. The retro theme was picked up by make-up artist, Kabuki, with a few black lines on the eyelids and unusual arrows made to look like a continuation of fluffy eyelashes in the corner of the eyes. Finally a coral lipstick shade was applied – MAC's 'Dangerous'.

Carolina Herrera

Carolina Herrera's continued elegance maintains an appeal that favours classic hair and make-up – and less about the experimentation. With a display of chic tailoring and evening dresses on the runway, make-up artist Diane Kendal simply used a light foundation, emphasising cheekbones with a dull peach blush before using a shimmering beige shadow on the eyelids. Finally a simple and classic black cream eyeliner brought out the lashes, and Kendal's work, using MAC, was complete.

3.1 Phillip Lim

With a slick effect of wet hair – something usually considered a summer trend, designer Phillip Lim leant on the talents of stylist, Paul Hanlon. Directly inspired by the style of David Bowie and Brian Ferry and the photography of Herb Ritts and Bruce Weber, Hanlon brushed back each model's full head of hair, giving it volume at the top and adding 'humidity' by using Moroccan oil. "The shape that transpired looked like something from the 80s, but I went for the completely deconstructive option," he said.
