Backstage at the always-girlie Nanette Lepore Spring 2011 fashion show at New York Fashion Week, the beauty look was 70's glam boho.

MAKEUP
: James Kaliardos for MAC Cosmetics
HAIR: Kevin Ryan for Rsession Tools
NAILS: Orly
SNAPSHOT: Charlie's Angels Meets Joan Crawford

THE SCOOP
: Kaliardos described the Lepore woman as "a strong, independent, working girl who's also ready for a night out." He created a sculpted eye in bronze and beige metallic shadow in a nod to Joan Crawford's makeup. The cheeks were subtly sculpted and the lips were prominent in pinky-red. Ryan did not intend to coordinate the hair with the makeup, but gave the girls a middle part and incomplete side ponytail that ended up looking a little "Rollergirl." The highly-pigmented silver nails continued the ready-to-disco theme.

GET THE LOOK-MAKEUP: All makeup by MAC Cosmetics. Kaliardos used new Mega Metal Shadows in Center Stage and Dalliance to create the dark bronze outer winged look and the highlighted lid. He also used the new Kissable Lipcolor in a magenta shade to amp up the lips with a color and shine.

GET THE LOOK-HAIR: Ryan blow-dried the hair straight, parted it in the middle and then pulled it into a side ponytail that covered one ear. He didn't pull the end of the ponytail all the way through, creating a loop of hair. He used the loose end of the loop to wrap around the elastic and pinned it underneath. He sent the girls off to get makeup done so that the hair would have a chance to relax and come a bit undone before the show.

GET THE LOOK-NAILS: All the girls got Orly Foil-Finish Lacquer in silvery Shine on nails and toes.
