Hi, I'm Lizzie Dunlap. I'm the assistant beauty editor at Marie Claire and today, we're gonna be going up in the Central Park and meeting women who have tattoos that are readers.

I got the one on my back when I was 16.

We found that over 40% of women in their 20s have tattoos, so we wanted to go Behind The Scenes and see why this is happening, what people wanted to get from it.

After I read that statistics, I really realized how many of my friends and coworkers actually do have tattoos.

I'm gonna get women to participate today by offering some free temporary tattoos and by giving them some Caress products.

How many tattoos do you have?

I have 3. I have this here which was my first tattoo. It is a quote from Albert Camus' The Stranger. I was in my existential period. It was very important to me at the time.

I'm really looking to get women to explain or tell about why they have their tattoos, what it says about them.

When you get them when you're quite young, there's a sort of this idea of rebellion.

I have one in my stomach, but it was more towards freedom from my mother and getting away from it and growing into a woman.

People wanna have like a sort of very unique and individual way to express themselves.

To show that they're flirty, to show that they're sexy, to show that they're trouble.

This one was just when my dad was pissed of my mom, so he said I could get a tattoo to get her back. So I did that one on.

I actually 2 sisters and my mom. We all got mushy ones like me and my 2 sisters got them on our wrists and then my mom got it on her ankle and it's kind of like-- it's like a family tattoo like I'm really close with them.

And I think it's very personal, you know. Some people I think that there's a trend toward people designing their own tattoos. So whether it's like a person in their life who's affected them in some way, a family member, a loved one.

On the inside, I'm gonna get a little girl holding a human heart that says "My heart belongs to daddy" 'cause he had a heart attack just recently.

I had it done over 10 years ago. It was one of those things I was in Greece with my girlfriends and we all got tattoos.

For the most part, you're probably really surprised at, you know, very conservative people, very safe people who are getting tattoos. People wanna have like a sort of very unique and individual way to express themselves.

Today, we are shooting the new shapes for the October issue of Marie Claire.

The point of the day is to get across some of the collections that are around and pretty much about shapes and form and structure. It's very formulated sort of images, very direct and the shapes of the clothes have a paramount importance.

Designers come up with new shapes because they're always trying to challenges themselves and come up with new and interesting and innovative ways to recreate the dress, to recreate the [unknown].

The inspiration was we have-- they started going today and I wanted to give a big, big tattoo of a big shape. The hair, it was a lot of extension just to make it big as much as we could.

What about the makeup?

I decided it should be Diana Ross meets Peggy Moffitt. So disco meets London.

With this story, we're trying to clearly illustrate the new shapes, architectural inspiration, the cocoon, the cinched waists, long and lean, abbreviated short sleeve.

It's not really about the photographer creating the show. I think it's really more about the clothes and the model themselves and I just help a little bit. That's what I do.

The model's poses and the simplicity of the photography will illustrate to the reader exactly what we're talking about.

I just called them up. I was like, "Hey, put me on the cover now." No, I'm so honored that they asked me to be on the cover. I think it's such a smart magazine. It's very chic. It's got great fashion spreads, but then it also is really intelligent.

Hi, I'm Amanda.

Hi, I'm [unknown].

We're here today to talk about Diesel's Fall 2007 Denim collection. Diesel decided to revamp its line and bring back the [unknown] from the '90s. It's very fashion for a jeans. It looks great on everybody and it has a universal fit.

Another really amazing fit is the Ronhar jean. It just looks good on everyone.

It's a classic five-pocket jean. It has great pocket detail. It comes in 5 different washes and it's just-- the fit is amazing. It's the number 1 selling jean because it fits every single body type and a lot of celebrities wear them. Jessica Biel wears them. It's a great jean. Another really popular style is the Zerox style. This is a really, really well-fitting jean as well.

It has 3 button closure and a wide waistband.

The waistband makes your butt look really cute.

It looks really cute.

Until the next episode, come with us as we go Behind The Scenes to a Spring '08, Mark it appointment with Bloomingdale's. See you soon.
