Nail Polish Trends at Alexander Wang

Nails at Alexander Wang

Backstage at New York Fashion Week

Usually, we’re content not knowing what goes on behind closed doors (they’re shut for a reason).

Except when it comes to New York Fashion Week. The backstage madness is half the appeal, especially since the manicurists, hairstylists, and makeup artists are the best in the biz.

So we elbowed our way back — amid slews of photogs, models, and publicists — to see what beauty trends might emerge next season. We talked nails at Alexander Wang (above), hair at Behnaz Sarafpour, and makeup and hair at Marc Jacobs.

Though the product and stylist recommendations are indispensable, we admit the dominatrix-inspired hair at Marc might be more on the conceptual side.

But that doesn’t mean you can’t try it in private.
