Punk's not dead — just look to Anna Sui's Spring 2013 collection for evidence. From Siouxsie Sioux to Soo Catwoman, iconic punk women inspired the runway's cotton-candy-colored hair and double-liner makeup look. Editor Jessica Cruel headed backstage with beauty legends Pat McGrath and Garren to uncover the inspiration. Watch now to find out more about this statement-making style (and to spot Karlie Kloss, Joan Smalls, Lindsey Wixson, and other big names in modeling, too).
The sex appeal of Helmut Newton's photographs inspired the designs of Max and Lubov Azria, whose models wore eyes rimmed with smudged kohl eyeliner. Their hair was blown out, pin curled, and let loose while lips were lightly coated with a pop of pink lipstick. We watched the beauty test before models took the runway in today's Beauty Book.
Rachel Zoe’s Spring 2013 beauty look borrowed from rock and roll inspirations yet again. The hair: one part Brigitte Bardot, another part Marianne Faithfull. Cool-girl muse Kate Moss was a reference point for the effortless-looking makeup, while a trio of polishes was blended to create a sherbet hue on nails. See our interviews with Rachel’s backstage beauty team in today’s Beauty Beat.
For Spring 2013, the need-to-know looks are deep side parts and messy, just-woke-up waves. From 3.1 Phillip Lim to Rodarte, designers made strong statements by stepping away from traditionally pretty styles. That's not to say the season doesn't have more ladylike looks, though; look to The Row and Suno for new takes on the chignon. See these and more new hairstyles in our trend wrap-up. On Kirbie: Rebecca Taylor.

Nails at Spring 2013 New York Fashion Week might not have been as bold and flashy as in seasons past, but a whole new crop of subtle-toned, light-reflecting finishes made for a pretty, feminine appeal. From translucent top coats to glowy pinks to pearlescent effects, nails on the Spring 2013 runways were as flirty as they were fun. See how designers Christian Siriano, Rebecca Taylor, and Catherine Malandrino presented the trend at their shows. On Kirbie Johnson: Rebecca Taylor.
