Get an insiders view of hair, makeup, and model mania with these behind-the-scenes clips from some of our fave New York Fashion Week shows.

Charlotte Ronson teamed her music influences (hello, her siblings are DJ Samantha Ronson and producer/DJ Mark Ronson) with her designs, creating a grunge meets military look. The hair (cornrows to one side) and makeup (dusky smoky eyes) added to the punk vibe of the entire show. {Watch.}

Betsey Johnson gave us her signature kooky style sense (as usual), but also a rich collection of tights, tops and frocks, inspired by the Victorian age. Look out for the lace spray painted hairdo in the clip. AMAZING! {Watch.}

• The Cynthia Steffe fashion show was packed with people who wanted to catch a glimpse of the luscious textures, exotic animal prints, menswear-inspired silhouettes, and polished-but-relaxed strands that went parading down the runway. {Watch.}
