The Narciso Rodriguez Spring 2011 fashion show at Lincoln Center was nothing short of a who's who in the fashion world. Although the guest list may have been high maintenance, the collection had a minimalist air best demonstrated by the long dresses in muted colors Rodriguez sent down the runway. "There were many things that inspired this collection," Rodriguez told Latina.com. "The work of video artist Jennifer Steinkamp, women of great personal style like Carolyn Bessette Kennedy and photos of Kate Moss in the mid 90s."

At Rosa Cha (the queen of super-sexy Brazilian bikinis), MAC makeup artist Nadine Luke played off the “birds of paradise” fashion inspiration and created a vibrant two-toned blue and orange eye. Her pro tip: By layering the blue eye pencil and blue cream eye shadow (both in a shade called “Cyan”), the color won’t budge—even under hot runway lights. She finished the eye with MAC StudioFix Lash, $14, maccosmetics.com, which she describes as a “credit card product; don’t leave home without it!”
