The images look like the K channel is missing when working in CMYK. I would start there by perhaps removing the K channel and then use channel mixer to pump cyan into the black as needed. The highlights also look like thay have been flooded with magenta and yellow as flat tints. I would do that in curves by pushing up your highlight in each to 10-25% depending on the effect you're looking for. cheers

All these effects can be done by photoshop if the photos are good enough to start with.
Really i can't do many effects as i saw here, but i can see that i may do something closer, and if i have the original good exposed and correct colors photos then getting different effects is just a game of Photoshop or similar retouching software.

Re: How can i acheve this color???

I think ray.mac has a pretty good solution or at least starting approach to the effect here. I've messed a bit with turning off the K channel myself with interesting results. It may also be a cross-processing treatment from a plug-in like Alien Skin Exposure.
This is a bit off the subject, but as much as I love the color treatment, is there something seriously wrong with the model's left (viewer's right) leg in the first photo? It may be partially hidden by the other leg, but the dividing line doesn't really make it look that way. Anybody else notice?

Some of the purple look and the blue shadow stuff can be done with a curves adjustment layer by moving the blue and red curves to the left or right of their normal positions. You can localize where this color is in the image by attaching a mask on the layer and selectively painting the effect and the color change you just created...and make it go anywhere with complete creative artistic control.
