As our beauty team made the rounds backstage during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Fall 2010, we noticed a bevy of models sporting disheveled and, dare we say, messy strands as they prepared to march the runway.

If Moss wasn’t enough to convince you to tune in, Gwyneth Paltrow and Liv Tyler will also make appearances. [Press Association]
