THE SCOOP: The clothes at Tracy Reese featured lots of texture, chunky knits and turtlenecks, in addition to the floaty dresses for which she's known. Reese herself called the collection "an eclectic mix of urban and rural style" and the hair and makeup match that theme with bold, edgy smoky eyes paired with soft, curly hair.

Syfu explained the bouncy curls as "country fair chic". "Like she's been in the country and her hair has come undone. It's very romantic but the texture makes it edgy," she said.

GET THE LOOK - MAKEUP: On the eyes Willer used a Maybelline New York eye shadow quad to create a shiny, dark brown smoky lid, and black gel eyeliner on the inner rims.

GET THE LOOK - HAIR: First Syfu sprayed the hair with Tresemmé Thermal Creations Curl Activator Spray. She then did a "ric rac" set around a 1/2" barrel curling iron, which means instead of wrapping the hair around the iron in the traditional way she did a figure 8 around a double-barrel iron. She then fluffed the curls with her fingers and a brush to make them soft and bouncy. The length of the hair tapered into a low side ponytail. She finished with 24 Hour Body Finishing Spray for light hold.

GET THE LOOK - NAILS: Sally Hansen created an exclusive collection of nail colours. For the show the models got a coat of the colour Wet Clay, which is a light nude, and a sexy black lace overlay.
