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."

This season, the ever-elegant Venezuelan designer Carolina Herrera drew inspiration from vintage flower prints and traditional Korean clothing. Hair stylist Orlando Pita for Moroccanoil and MAC makeup artist Diane Kendal chose to focus on the Korean influences, making hair sleek and angular and keeping makeup minimal except for a bold red eye shadow.

Brazilian designer, Alexandre Herchcovitch, showcased his sexy Spring 2011 collection for Rosa Cha yesterday at Lincoln Center. The beachwear was reminiscent of 1950’s lingerie, featuring structured bras, high-waists and tapered lines accentuating the curves of a woman’s body. For the first time in addition to the bathing suits, ballerina-like dresses with sheer accents made the cut for Rosa Cha's collection.

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!”
Watch Nadine describe the look:

At the Fall 2010 runway shows of designers Juan Carlos Obando and Narciso Rodriguez, there was something strangely absent from the faces of all their models: mascara.
To provide a cleaner, fresher and more modern look, eyelashes were—gasp!—left bare. They were merely curled beforehand for a subtle, yet feminine touch. What do you say chicas: Are you ready to drop your wands this fall and go for a more natural stare?

It's amazing how one fall fashion show can make you forget how much you're hating winter.

Browse through some of the looks from last night's show and discover ways to spruce up your look now while you're still impatiently waiting for spring.

The fall 2010 collection of designer Carlos Campos was inspired by three things: Antonio Banderas and Salma Hayek in the film Desperado, mariachi, and the embellishments found on a Mexican sombrero. It was, as Campos put it, “a thank-you to Mexico; they’ve done so much for me and my career.” And what a thank-you it was! The inspiration played out quite literally in structured shoulders and neat tailoring, corbatin-style neck ties, and botonaduras adorning shorts and lapels.
