Fashion shows are brief, strange affairs that usually last five to eight minutes with loud music and unsmiling models. The clothes and trends change, but one thing will always stay true—the models are beautiful. Usually they're told to strut their most serious stuff on the runway without emotion or smiles, so it's behind the scenes where their true personalities and beauty shine.

Lucky for us, Instagram has given us all a peek behind the catwalk's curtains into the madness going on backstage at fashion shows. It's how we can see models goofing off, taking selfies, and still being very beautiful. We did our due diligence and rounded up The Hottest Instagram Pics of Models Backstage at NYFW that you won't see on any runway.
