With sharp lines and bold shapes, paired with complementary makeup looks and perfectly over-the-top fashion, the collection, "The Black Orange," is a wonderful mashup of light and dark, soft and strong, playfulness and seriousness.Behind the Scenes:

Backstage Beauty: Alexandre Herchovitch Fall 2014
It’s been said that life imitates art, but what about art imitating art? At Alexandre Herchovitch Bumble and Bumble lead hairstylist Rolando Beauchamp taps the provocative paintings of Egon Schiele and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec to create his frizzed coiffures. “The collection this season is inspired by the Victorian era, so I started thinking about [the] paintings, where women have very tousled hair around the face and [the rest is] put up in buns,” says Beauchamp.

Backstage Beauty: DKNY Fall 2014
While the feeling backstage at DKNY seems like backstage-as-usual—helter-skelter with stylists, models and press scurrying about, in actuality it’s anything but usual. With a cast of 55 catwalkers, comprised of both professional models and regular people plucked off the street (think: students, club kids, entrepreneurs, musicians and artists), it’s nearly impossible to distinguish who’s who. And to top that, the beauty designs are tailored to bring out the individuality of each person taking to the runway, so there is no singular beauty look.

Among these refugees, there is a ballerina. “A free spirit floating toward the intersection of everything, she is a glamorous vagabond on the run with her dreams and colors!” says von Furstenberg.
