The beauty at the Marc by Marc Jacobs fashion show during New York Fashion Week took our breath away, and it’s no wonder, since makeup artist Dick Page and hairstylist Guido Palau (the ultimate industry pros) were at the helm. “The inspiration for this look was a 1940s-era woman, an uptown girl,” Palau said. “But we made the look more fun, and thus, more Marc by Marc.” And it was, with head-turning, amped-up voluminous curls and bold crimson lipstick. That’s why we got the entire beauty breakdown straight from the pros! Click “See the Photos” to take a trip backstage.
The big hair and glossy red lips were a dead giveaway that the fall Marc by Marc Jacobs collection was all about ’70s glam. As for the clothes, there was a cool mix of covetable daywear, like boyish button-downs, belted skirts, swingy dresses, and wildly-printed blouses. For evening, the designer offered a handful of clever alternatives to the classic LBD, like satin minidresses and suits. Boxy bags (perfect for 9-to-5) and wear-everywhere heels finished off the flirty lineup. See our favorite looks in the gallery!

Gossip Girl’s fashionable Upper East Siders returned to the CW last night for another episode counting down to the series finale. And aside from the drama, the fashion kept us watching yet again. Serena van der Woodsen (Blake Lively) kept it colorful in a cobalt Marc by Marc Jacobs dress, while Blair Waldorf (Leighton Meester) brought back a sophisticated version of her once-signature headband to accessorize her Alice + Olivia skirt.

An explosion of color, paterns, and layers—the Marc by Marc Jacobs spring collection had it all! Embroidered jackets? Check. Brightly printed retro swimsuits? Check. Turbans? Check! There were prints on prints, scarves atop dresses atop shirts, and a mash up of bold hues mixed with faded neutrals. The chunky platforms were worn with equally chunky socks, while each model sported a stack of bangles and a statement handbag. See our favorite looks in the gallery!

At his Spring 2013 Marc by Marc Jacobs show, the designer gave us the key to transitional dressing—scarves! Lengths of colorful cloth were worn as turbans, casually looped around necks and wrapped around waists, obi-style. In short, Jacobs showed us the perfect way to brave the coming cold with flair—layer up with lots of color!
It’s the week of cobalt dresses! Blake Lively kicked off the cobalt blue fashion show on Tuesday when she filmed Gossip Girl wearing a handkerchief style dress by Marc by Marc Jacobs (shop it at marcjacobs.com for $398). Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge followed two days later in a Stella McCartney shift, Lea Michele picked Oscar de la Renta on Friday, and Zooey Deschanel chose the hue when she wore Monique Lhuillier to last night’s Teen Choice Awards. ”Fans of blue tend to be quiet and conservative,” Kate Smith, the expert behind sensationalcolor.com, told InStyle recently. “But those drawn to the brighter cobalt shades speak their minds when necessary.” Intriguing! When going with monochromatic cobalt, avoid frills in favor of clean, sleek lines, and pair the eye-catching shade with neutrals like nude, white, and black (notice Kate, Lea, and Zooey’s heels). For a more emphatic statement, combine cobalt with a bright opposite, like Blake did with her strappy coral heels.
