Twice a year Milan, Italy, gives itself over to womenÕs fashion week. Super-models, buyers, fashion pilgrims and partiers flock to consume the visual extravaganza, while the business of beautification is conducted at a frenetic pace backstage, hidden from view.

The word "fashionista" was coined by Stephen Fried in his book "Thing of Beauty: the Tragedy of Supermodel Gia" to describe "the army of models, photographers, designers, hair and makeup people, stylists and editors who toiled daily in the beauty trenches."

Teenage Model

Backstage at a fashion show in Minneapolis, MN, 16-year-old Liz Kammerer of South St. Paul, center, tries to remain calm moments before walking the runway. "It's nice to have people actually look at me," Liz said. "When you're a teenager, you always get these magazines in the mail, and there are these models that are always looking pretty. They have perfect bodies. I see them and think, 'I want to be a model just like them.' That's what I want, for people to see me and say, 'I want to be just like her.' I want to get noticed by a lot more people, to get attention from them and feel like I actually did something."
