Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week NYC Fall ‘10: Zac Posen

It might have been early, but the backstage area of Zac Posen's Fall 2010 Collection show was a flurry of hair, nails and makeup—and plenty of coffee. of course. For hair, Odile Gilbert for L'Oreal Professionnel created a middle-parted, wavy look using products from the Texture Expert Infinium line along with the new Life Extreme mousse and Freezing Mist. Below, watch a video of Odile describing the inspiration behind the style.
For makeup, Stephane Marais for M.A.C. Cosmetics smudged Eye Kohl in Smolder on the upper and lower lids to create a dramatic, mysterious look. On the lips, Marais softly applied Hipster Lipstick with a touch of Dubonnet Lipstick in the center.

Deborah Lippmann was the mastermind behind the nails. Below, watch a video of her describing the polish choice.
