While the rest of the country is prepping for the big game this weekend (something about football... I don't know), the fashion and beauty industries are gearing up for our favorite spectator sport: New York Fashion Week, which kicks off this Wednesday, February 9th, and runs through Friday, February 18th. Once again, our L'Oréal brands are collaborating with some of the biggest makeup artists, hairstylists, and designers to create a spectacular array of runway looks—all of which I'll be bringing you the scoop on straight from backstage. Even after covering Fashion Week for a number of years now, I still get so excited to go backstage because I just love watching the artists work their magic. They're some of the most passionate and dedicated individuals I've ever met, and to see their genius work come to life up close and in person is truly one of the most special parts of my job (the gorgeous makeup look above, by the way, was created by Aaron De Mey, Lancôme's artistic director of makeup, at L'Wren Scott's spring 2011 show). Check out the incredible lineup of artists and designers we're working with this season—which show are you most excited to see? Thursday, February 10th BCBG: makeup by Charlotte Willer and Maybelline New York Sunday, Feb. 13th Victoria Beckham: makeup by Charlotte Tilbury and Lancôme; hair by Guido and Redken DKNY: makeup by Charlotte Willer and Maybelline Max Azria: makeup by Charlotte Willer and Maybelline Monday, February 14th Chris Benz: makeup by Daniel Martin and Lancôme; hair by John Ruidant and Redken Thursday, February 17th L'Wren Scott: makeup by Aaron De Mey and Lancôme L.A.M.B. by Gwen Stefani: makeup by Charlotte Willer and Maybelline Friday, February 18th Ralph Lauren: hair by Guido and Redken And those are just the shows I'm covering. Hairstylist Guido, Redken's creative consultant and arguably one of the most influential hairstylists in the world (not to mention, one of my favorite people), will be doing a whopping 10 additional shows in New York. Unfortunately, I won't be backstage at most of these because, well, I'm only one person and I'll also have my full-time job to do here! But if you have a chance, check out these shows online to see more of his incredible work: Rag & Bone (Feb 11th) Alexander Wang (Feb 12th) Donna Karan (Feb 14th) Marc Jacobs (Feb 14th) Diesel (Feb 15th) Marc by Marc Jacobs (Feb 15th) J.
