THE SCOOP: Walter Baker worked the good-girl-bad-girl motif for his fall collection sending everything from tuxedo jackets and leather knit pants to silk-and-lace sweaters and soft shearling jackets down the runway. "It's all about tomboy-vamp, military madness, and a lot of working girl looks but with a twist," said Baker, who along with wife Agnes, collaborated on makeup with Napoleon Perdis. "Blue and black is the base of the whole collection so we wanted something with a little blue in it to really pop and make everything come alive," explained Baker.

Blue eyes took center stage at the hands of Perdis, who created a beautiful blue palette for the girls. "It's not too dark, but looks as if she applied it all herself," he said. "I wanted it to look like the kind of girl who just rimmed her eyes for day but then for night she adds a little bit of blue to make it look amazing-she's a tomboy but she's pretty." Flawless skin paired with a natural lip and lots of lashes was pretty indeed.

Across the room in hair, stylist Whitney Blischke created a super-sleek ponytail to play against the good-girl-bad-girl theme. "The good girl has a ponytail but she's also a bad girl because it's very sleek and shiny and kind of militant," she said. Blonde models had their ponies secured with a black ribbon while brunettes received a mushroom-colored one.
