Before models hit the runway, they sit backstage for what can be hours of hair and makeup. They're shuffled back and forth between stylists who pull, cut, sometimes even dye their hair and makeup artists who strip their faces before re-painting them, not to mention manicurists who buff their nails to oblivion. So what do they do with all that time? We spotted one particularly focused teen reading The Bell Jar, but most of them pass the time with headphones on their ears. What, we wanted to know, are their current favorite songs? Below, our model playlist.
