The cool clothes at Alexander Wang's presentation were complemented with even edgier bobs. Those itsy-bitsy bangs are a tough trend to pull off, but these models worked it in the daring hairstyle.

We've seen the trend on manicures, but Diane von Furstenberg and Narciso Rodriguez are incorporating the artistic design into makeup by leaving parts of the eyelid colorless. Shiseido Artistic Director Dick Page chose the Shimmering Cream Eye Color in Caviar ($25; bloomingdales.com) to add shine to lids.

Who needs an elastic when you can just tuck your hair into your clothes? Several of Vera Wang's models sported what looked like faux ponytails from the back and bobs from the front. Runway stylist Paul Hanlon for Pai-Shau designed the artistic look, and he explained, "It's all about healthy condition, rounded lines." So, the only product that was needed was the Pai-Shau Biphasic Infusion (for salons; pai-shau.com), which allowed strands to move freely.
