One of London Fashion Week's most anticipated shows, Burberry Prorsum, drew stars like Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Alexa Chung to the front row — along with actress Poppy Delevigne, who snapped photos of her younger sister, Cara, as she walked the runway. Read on to find out more about Burberry's darker view of beauty for Fall 2012, along with some photographs from backstage.
The hot bandage dresses at Hervé Léger were definitely sexy, but we couldn't stop staring at the three-part ponytails models wore down the runway. Backstage, lead hairstylist Neil Moodie shared his inspiration behind the hairstyle and how you can get a similar look at home in just a few steps. Try it next time you're going out.
Oh, the stories I have to tell you about the Miss Sixty show. But before going any further, would you look at this gorgeous red hair? In a sea of blonde, black, and brown, this model's mane grabbed my attention. I loved it, but then again, the hair in general was so pretty. Neil Moodie of Bumble & bumble created the '70s-influenced look, and I snagged a minute with him before the show. "We wanted to keep the hair a little more simple because in the collection, there's a lot going on," he explained. "It's '70s, but not literal. It needs to be a little more subtle."
I also talked with Gucci Westman, the lead makeup artist who was working with MAC for the show. While she applied deep blue eye shadow to Jessica Stam, she explained the inspiration for the look. "It's a sort of a cross between Joan Jett and bohemian, with a little bit of Endora," she said. As she did with her work for Rag & Bone a few days prior, she used a rich blue as the base for eyes. "I'm feeling the blue," she said.

At the Nathan Jenden spring 2008 fashion show in London, the hair look was relaxed, long and loose with a rough texture. Nathan collaborated with hair stylist Neil Moodie, who used products from Bumble and Bumble.
Neil's inspiration came from an eclectic creative vision. He imagined a modern version of a Victorian ballerina dancing hip-hop in the jungle and he executed the look by choosing natural looking, "un-done" long, tousled hair that doesn't get brushed.

Hair rolls rocked the runways of the Fall 2007 fashion shows across Europe. Designers such as Margaret Howell, Veronique Branquinho and Nathan Jenden chose these styles because they are a wispy, modern and avant-garde version of an up-do. They keep hair off the neck to showcase the beauty of the clothing (and the models, too). This modern and elegant style is really easy to do, and it looks great in any season.
The first two looks above were originally constructed by Neil Moodie using all Bumble and Bumble products. For five simple step-by-step instructions on how to create this look at home for yourself. read more
