    First the photo itself needs to be shot using a blue/cyan backlight on one side of the image. Second, in the post, after you've done any other general clean up retouching, duplicate the image several times and reposition them in various opacities to get the ghosting effect. Then on ghost layers, do a hue/saturation adjustment and colorize (in these they used a burnt orange/red) and then mask the main area of the subject you want clean from the ghosting.

    I think that gets you more than half-way there.

      In my opinion ghost layers are also motion blurred or radial ... I can't perfectly understand :-(. Maybe there are also some liquify effects ...
      mumble mumble ...

          To do this you need some ambient light in the frame and rear curtain flash. You take the photo with long exposure and moving model, then flash freezes the movement and presto! you've got what you aimed for.

              +1 - a combination of continuous lighting (to create the motion blur) and flash (for the clear/sharp capture) and likely some color gels, etc, to attain the ambien colors will be the main factors.

              They can both (blurred and sharp) be captured separately, cleaned up where necessary, then composited accordingly.

                  I would guess that a lot of this is done in camera like others are saying with continuous lighting mixed with flash. They may also be shooting frames for just motion to composite in later. It is very reminiscent of Steven Klein's work with the use of gels. I spoke with an assistant who worked for him recently and they sometimes pre-lit scenes for two days to get it right with all of the gels. I would recommend trying to reproduce most in camera and then enhance in post rather than the other way around.
