The Models Share the Secrets to Their Runway-Ready Skin

If you’ve ever been anywhere near the backstage set-ups at fashion week then you’re well aware that things tend to get a little chaotic in those final hours leading up to a show. Layers of makeup are simultaneously being stripped away and reapplied, in some cases sweat is slowly making its way to the surface, and all the while you’re surviving on just a couple hours of sleep.   And yet, while that kind of stress would wreck havoc on our temperamental skin—there’s not enough cover up in the world at that point—the models always come out looking even-toned and blemish free.  Sure, a lot of that has to do with superior genetics, but even a supermodel’s DNA can’t fight breakouts and dark circles without a little help from the beauty counter.  But just what are these secret products behind the models’s forever flawless skin?  We recently caught up with some of our favorite models backstage at New York Fashion Week to get the scoop on their pre-runway skincare regimens and to learn just how they’re able to keep their skin looking SO good. Uncover the beauty secrets behind fashion’s most beautiful women including Lara Stone, Lily Aldridge, Cameron Russell and more in the slideshow below!

Cara Delevingne Debuts Her Sexiest Campaign Yet!

Remember a while back when Cara Delevingne posted a slew of bikini-clad selfies from Bali to her Instagram?  You may recall a particular topless snap in particular.  Well, as it turns out, those NSFW photos were all taken behind-the-scenes of her new John Hardy campaign shot by world-renowned photographer Sebastian Faena.  And if you thought those pics were racy, just wait until you see the full campaign!

Debuting earlier today on the label’s website, the campaign is arguably Cara’s sexiest work to date. Under the creative direction of David Lipman, the supermodel can be seen frolicking the ocean outside the John Hardy compound in Mambal, Bali wearing little more than a black two-piece and handmade pieces from the designer’s fall collection.  And things only continue to heat up in the accompany campaign video in which Cara is joined by hunky male model.

While the pieces are stunning in and of themselves, we can’t help but swoon over Cara’s smoldering makeup (courtesy of Tom Pecheux) and seemingly perfect tousled beach hair.  She may be the queen of tomboy street style, but let it be know, Cara’s not afraid to work the va va voom when she needs to.
