A Model’s NYFW Diary: Derek Lam and Diane Von Furstenburg
When it comes to high fashion, model Alana Zimmer is one of the biggest names in the industry. Some of her latest accomplishments: starring in the current Akris and Givenchy Beauty ad campaigns and walking in the Armani Privé and Jean Paul Gaultier Haute Couture shows last month in Paris.

While the usual low-slung pony is great for day-to-day, holiday party season provides the ideal opportunity to experiment with a different style. That’s why we’ve teamed up with one of our favorite sites, Beauty High. Each week, they’ll be sending over a few runway shots to inspire you to try something new for your upcoming festive fetes.
When it comes to holiday parties, it’s all about being bold. If you’re not going to jazz up your look with a vivid lipstick hue, take your hair to new heights—literally. We saw a variety of high-volume bouffants on the fall 2012 runways this past fashion week, and can’t wait to try out the look for ourselves. Plus, there’s no better time to try something new than a fun holiday gala!
Below are some of our favorite takes on the sky-high looks, from full-on French twists to faux bobs. Find out how to get the look yourselves:

These days, it seems like just about everyone in beauty is doing a collaboration with some celebrity, designer, big-name artist, or other. (Well, they do say two heads are better than one!) But nothing could have prepared us for the triple threat presented by these new, limited edition nail wraps from Glamour's seventh-annual Fashion Gives Back program. Born out of the efforts of Los Angeles nail brand NCLA, Glamour, and 10 Crosby Derek Lam, these babies give a nod to beauty, fashion, and tech.
This New York Fashion Week, we have a new blog contributor—and she’s as pro as they come. Model Alana Zimmer (whose resume includes regular Vogue editorials, walking in couture shows like Armani and Jean Paul Gaultier, and starring in Nicole Miller’s fall ad campaign) is taking exclusive backstage pics for us at all the shows she’s in this season. Check back each day to see NYFW from a model’s point of view!
