THE SCOOP: "We're creating a modern French twist," said hair stylist Ted Gibson. "It's the opposite of the classic Upper East Side twist -- disheveled with tons of texture -- for the girl who'd hang out downtown, at the Mercer Hotel, or the new Crosby," he added.

Inspired by a night moon peeking through the clouds, the eye look was a smoky eye, done in shades of blue. "We did eyes in a dusty blue-gray with a little black smudged in, explained makeup artist Tina Turnbow. The rest of the face was kept minimal. "We just used a rally pretty opalescent lip balm," she said.

Nails sparkled, in blue, thanks to Deborah Lippmann's Nail Polish in Across the Universe, a new release for fall. "It was one of those match made in heaven situations," she said, when asked about the color. "I was already doing this shade for fall, and, when I met with the design team to go over the clothing, we realized that she had a fabric in her fall collection that exactly matched it. We thought, let's not be serious, let's just have fun!" She filed nails into a short almond shape (when wearing sparkles, too-long nails are a no no) , and painted on two coats of the blue and green glitter formula, that's set in a sheer navy base.

GET THE LOOK - MAKEUP: All makeup by Tarte. Apply Blue Lagoon Eye Shadow at the center of the top and lower lids. Blend the blue into blue-gray Eye Shadow in Lucy I'm Home at the inner and outer corners. Add SmolderEyes eye liner in the inner rims, and top off with a few coats of Lights, Camera, Lashes! Mascara. Lips got a "moonlit glow" with Slide Tin Lip Balm in Pucker Up.

GET THE LOOK - HAIR: Flip hair over, spritz with volumizing Ted Gibson Build It Spray, and tease at the roots. Then flip back, finger comb hair into a ponytail at the top of the head, twist it, and pin it down to the bottom of the head.
