The look coming down the Anna Sui Fall 2013 runway took a playful spin on the '60s! Hairstylist Garren, who works with Anna every season, took inspiration from a Catherine Deneuve photo and updated her signature bouffant into a pageboy style, wrapping hair around a ponytail and tucking it under for the pouf effect. For the girls with short hair, like Karlie Kloss and Jessica Stam, watch the video to find out his personalized hair plan of attack. Makeup artist Pat McGrath created the adorable — and wearable — '60s look, sticking with a strong cat eye and dots under the bottom lashes for a mod twist. Much like the choreographed dance that started the runway show, the look was the perfect mix of playful and coy. We can't wait to try the look ourselves.
Get ready to take some notes because New York Fashion Week showcased a bevy of cool color trends to look forward to come Fall 2013. Black and white hues are back — and better than ever thanks to designers like Helmut Lang, Tibi, and Proenza Schouler. Classic camel hues also dominated the runways, showing copious amounts of outerwear and separates from Derek Lam, J.Crew, and Rachel Zoe, while olive green made its mark on a range of military-inspired looks from Jason Wu and Prabal Gurung.

Now that we've covered the best shoes from New York Fashion Week's Fall '13 shows, it's time to focus on those other important outfit-makers: handbags. We saw a large amount of oversize bags at Diane von Furstenberg, Marc by Marc Jacobs, and Victoria Beckham (who is steadily helping the tote-as-clutch trend take off), while designers like Jason Wu and Tory Burch showed teeny-tiny clutches in eye-catching jewel tones. Alexander Wang offered up another round of gorgeous leather satchels, and we were simply smitten with the fur-covered clutches we eyed at Proenza Schouler and 3.1 Phillip Lim.

For Fall 2013, Michael Kors turned out an athletic-meets-chic collection that the beauty team of Dick Page and Orlando Pita complemented with an equally strong and sexy hair and makeup look. Page reinterpreted the smoky eye, creating what he called a "block eye" with black at the corners and lighter pink toward the center, while Pita used a very interesting — and quite racy — measure to secure his long, swinging ponytails. Dying to know the secret behind the pulled-back style? Well, you'll have to watch our video to find out!
We look to Michael Kors season after season to deliver a new iteration of impeccably chic American sportswear. For Fall '13, the iconic designer looked to a bright palette and sleek silhouettes and gave us a new, highly luxurious take on typically tougher camo print. For a look at every piece from his Fall collection, watch the runway right here.
Zac Posen is known for his glamorous runways, and for Fall 2013 he paired his red-carpet-worthy frocks with crimped chignons and deep berry lips. The updos, according to key hairstylist Luigi Murenu for John Frieda, offered a sense of lightness when paired with the gowns. And as for the makeup, artist Kabuki for MAC described it as an almost reverse smoky eye, inspired by the supermodels of the '90s. A brick-red lip punctuated the look. We went backstage at Posen's show (set at the famed and gilded Plaza Hotel) to watch a model go through hair and makeup from start to finish. Watch and see how the posh look came together.
For every gorgeous look we saw on the runway at NYFW, there was a chic pair of shoes to match. We saw an emerging sandal boot trend taking off at Helmut Lang, Jason Wu, and 3.1 Phillip Lim, as well as a bevy of smart menswear-inspired flats from Tommy Hilfiger and Thakoon. There was an array of ladylike pumps at Alice + Olivia, Proenza Schouler, and Carolina Herrera and tons of tough ankle boots at Belstaff and Altuzarra. We've rounded up our most-loved pairs for you to pore over now — click through to see our favorites from New York Fashion Week and stay tuned as we add more fabulous footwear from London, Milan, and Paris!
The top trends at New York Fashion Week Fall 2013 have everything to do with shimmery metallics, luxurious textures, military details, and '90s references. And that's just the beginning. Designers like Tibi, Proenza Schouler, and Jason Wu looked to Winter whites, supplied us with new (feminine) takes on the suit, and delivered our latest handbag craze by way of slim, structured clutches and crossbody bags. We've broken it down — standout trend by standout trend — so see our top 10 straight from New York Fashion Week's Fall '13 runways now.

New York Fashion Week may be over, but we're still busy drooling over the Fall '13 finds. What are we focused on? The number of bags on the runway that could easily double as tech clutches to store tablets, headphones, and laptops in the chicest of surroundings. Check out the items we'd like to outfit our tech in come September.
Not even a full-fledged New York City blizzard could deter the Fashion Week crowd from donning their prettiest, coolest, and sexiest footwear. From the Lincoln Center tents to Milk Studios, these attendees made a head-to-toe commitment to fashion, right down to their statement stilettos, booties, high-wattage sneakers, and slick loafers and brogues. The footwear of choice this season? Besides the quintessential black booties, we spotted Winter-perfect knee-highs (and thigh-highs!), crisp white pumps, flashes of metallics, and cool-girl high-tops taking over. So, from the very practical (like a pair of bold-hued Nikes) to those who braved the shows (and the snow!) with open-toes, get all the shoe-stalking highlights right here.
