Pretty Plaits at Rachel Roy: Mane man Ted Gibson perfected modern milkmaid braids to accentuate Roy's casual, yet chic collection filled with fall essentials: trench coats, vests and mid-length skirts in prints dying to be mixed and matched. By weaving plaits in fabric from the designer's pieces, Gibson added softness to the bold braids for a textured hairstyle my strands were made for. - Dana Oliver

Old Hollywood Glamour at Badgley Mischka: Beauty harkened back to classic Tinseltown, yet successfully was given a modern twist -- particularly with the hair. Stylist Peter Gray had four different things going on with the rope twist, French pleat, chignon and diamante strip down the part, yet it didn't feel too busy -- just gorgeous! As always Deborah Lippmann created an uber-cool mani color combo that I'll want to try at home, and Tom Pecheux for MAC Cosmetics seamlessly worked his magic on the eyes while still making time to smile, chat, and double-cheek kiss with us reporters that adore him! - Julia DiNardo

Catherine Malandrino's Classic Beauty with a Leather Edge: I was totally seduced by Catherine Malandrino's stunningly smoked lavender eye paired with cascading waves and sheer glossy lips. "The girl is '70s Parisian -- fresh hair, chic color applied stylishly. It's pretty, but with a touch of city," said lead Maybelline artist Gato. It's one look I can't wait to sink my makeup brush into. - Grace Gold

Cushnie et Ochs' Caviar Nails: I'm completely obsessed with the textured nails created for the Cushnie et Ochs Fall 2011 show. Dashing Diva's Pattie Yankee painted the models' nails with a base coat of Dashing Diva Nail Color in Limo Service (a creamy, opaque black), brushed on a thin layer of nail glue and then dipped each fingertip into a contained filled with teensy black beads. It looked shiny and polished, but also edgy and cool, and using them was especially interesting since the same beads were used as decorative accents on the clothes, tying it all together perfectly. It's such a great idea for bringing a new look to dark nails. - Jill Schuck Taylor

Vivienne Tam's Chinese Opera Twist: During Fashion Week, there's a soft spot in my heart for over-the-top and avant-garde hair and makeup, so this season that spot was occupied by Vivienne Tam. Leon Gorman for Cutler Salon/Redken actually used a hair net to tame the wild top knots, which was so unexpected and definitely challenged what I traditionally think of when I hear the words "hair net." As for the makeup, Andy Koh for Maybelline really understood Tam's Chinese Opera inspiration and used thick black upturned liner, lush lashes and porcelain skin to channel that modern Chinese beauty. Even the nails received a bit of Chinese red, with the easiest reverse French mani we've ever seen -- Incoco Ruby Shoes nail strips were simply applied to the tips, no drying required and impossible to smudge. - Lisa Schweitzer
