At Fashion Week, there was just as much action going on behind the scenes as there was on the runways—well, almost as much action—and our national site was on hand to capture all of the backstage hair, makeup, and model hoopla. Some of that included the longest fake eyelashes ever at Betsey Johnson, knotted tribal fauxhawks at Mara Hoffman, and one hell of a brow at Custo Barcelona. Plus, this season we saw a steady influx of slicked back mullet hair at a gagillion different shows.
