Backstage at the Rebecca Taylor Spring 2011 collection at New York's Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, the look was a bit 70's, as inspired by Yves Saint Laurent's ladies, but more undone.

MAKEUP: Sil Bruinsma for MAC Cosmetics
HAIR: Dai Michishita for Cutler
NAILS: Theresa Stanley for OPI
SNAPSHOT: Cool '70s girl

THE SCOOP: "The look is intense, smoldering eyes in coppers and browns," Bruinsma told Stylelist. "The girls look a bit like they partied last night, but still fresh and modern." He kept the cheeks bare and gave the lips a wine stain.

Michishita created a top knot -- one of the clear trends at the shows -- but this time the hair was intentionally frizzy and had major volume at the back of the head and with lots of straight, loose and undone pieces around the face. "The designer wanted a look to complement the relaxed, cozy, beachy feel of the clothes," said Michishita.

GET THE LOOK -- MAKEUP: All makeup by MAC Cosmetics. Bruinsma used a new, intense copper powder shadow on the center of the lids in a shade called Spectacle of Yourself, wrapping it just under the eyes also. He lined the eyes with black Eye Kohl and lots of black mascara. He used his fingers to dab Charred Red lipstick as a stain on the lips.

GET THE LOOK -- HAIR: The hair was backcombed at the roots, then flat-ironed to seal in the texture. Then it was brushed out and pulled into a high ponytail and then wrapped into a knot on top of the girls' heads. The stylists left pieces of hair from the front of the hairline loose and undone.

GET THE LOOK -- NAILS: All nail products by OPI. "We used I'm Suzi And I'm A Chocoholic on the nails because Taylor wanted a shade that would go with the lips, and then we did a nude fleshy color on the toes -- Barefoot in Barcelona," said Stanley.
