Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week began yesterday in New York, and my first official stop (after picking up my press pass) was backstage at Richard Chai's Spring 2012 show, where Avon Global Stylist Tippi Shorter and her team were hard at work creating the hair looks (balloons were involved) and MAC makeup artists led by James Kaliardos worked their beauty magic.

One of the highlights for me from New York Fashion Week was going backstage at the Adrienne Vittadini Fall 2011 presentation, where the beautiful Tippi Shorter, Global Stylist for Avon, took some time out from her busy schedule to share the inspiration and techniques used to create the hair looks for the show. Mind you, this was no ordinary show: Adrienne opted to showcase the wearable, classic collection on some of the most legendary models in the business, including the incomparable Pat Cleveland (who you'll see in the video), Carmen Dell'Orefice, Niki Taylor and many others. Watch the video above to find out how Avon stylists worked their magic on the icons, then click through to see more exclusive backstage photos.

Pantene Celebrity Stylist Danilo (who I interviewed backstage at the L.A.M.B. Fall 2010 show) styled Dianna Agron's hair for the 2011 Golden Globes. Sidenote: Dianna Agron is the first famous person I've ever been aware of who spells her name just like me (ie., Dianna with a double "n")!
Danilo and Dianna decided on a half-up glamour set to complement her strapless J. Mendel dress. "When you style hair for the red carpet you have to take into account that it must look good from every angle," said Danilo. "I wanted her hair to have the ability to be undone, have movement, and be shiny, but didn't want her to worry about it all night which is why a half-up style was the perfect choice."
