Lights! Camera! Fashion! Come along as Justine goes behind the scenes at New York Fashion Week with our Teen Correspondent Vara Gianna! Not only did Vara get to experience the runway shows from one of those coveted front row seats, but she also got up-close-and-personal access to interview the designers backstage.

Her takeaways from the NYFW experience:

Fashion Trends Straight From The Runway • Watch for denim continuing to be dominant for fall. And monochromatic colors are very strong. Lots of black and white, not so much color.

Favorite Show Moment Her favorite moment during the shows was getting to see the hustle and bustle of the backstage areas with models, designers, hair and makeup stations and clothes everywhere.

Runway Makeup Trends Using natural makeup to bring out the model’s features seemed to be the trend at the shows she attended. Her favorite new makeup trend was a lip that had a darker color in the center shading out to dark at the edges, creating a very plump lip.

Best NYC Experience Getting ready for the shows and walking around the city and, of course, the bright lights in Times Square.
