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.
