In the second installment of One of a Kind, the BCBG team is quickly putting together Onyinye's custom BCBG Max Azria jacket — but what our winner doesn't know is that she's going to get to attend BCBG's Fall 2013 runway show at New York Fashion Week! Before she hears the good news, Onyinye and Allison take a tour of BCBG's official headquarters, where the design team is perfecting the Fall collection and models are being casted for the runway. It's just days until the big show, and One of a Kind is catching all the last-minute preparation with Lubov Azria herself.

When it came to makeup trends, the New York Fashion Week Fall 2013 runways were alive with color. High-voltage hues in the form of fuchsia lips graced models' faces at Diane von Furstenberg. Cat eyes got an upgrade at Michael Kors, thanks to artist Dick Page's masterful sweep of smoky black and soft pink hues. And at Rachel Zoe, oxblood lips made an appearance due to artist Charlotte Tilbury's top techniques. Check out our video now to see what's on the horizon for Fall.
According the New York Fashion Week runways, Fall 2013 hair trends will likely lean in the direction of braids, ponytails, and '90s grunge. In short, there's something for everyone: slicked-back ponytails like we saw from stylist Orlando Pita at Michael Kors, milkmaid braids spotted at Alice + Olivia, and plenty of grungy texture, as lead stylist Paul Hanlon created on models' strands backstage at 3.1 Phillip Lim.

It was about the future at Theyskens' Theory's Fall 2013 show, from the minimalist clothing to the clean, fresh skin. Designer Olivier Theyskens worked with James Kaliardos for MAC to execute the woman of the future, putting the focus on a diffused, lit-from-within complexion. The hair, by Kérastase's Odile Gilbert, felt equally polished and yet untouched, with strands slicked back into a headband for a cool waterfall effect.
