Arriving backstage at L.A.M.B, I was immediately thrust right into the middle of a fashion frenzy. Models had colorful extensions braided into their hair, manicurists roamed the floor painting nails, and tailors worked speedily on touching up a last minute dress.

The season’s “African Dance Hall” inspired theme was complimented by every last detail of the models look.

Beautiful dark navy nails brought out the blues in much of the clothing.

Hair was styled in elaborate masses of long braids, inspired by Stefani’s recent red carpet looks, and multi-ethnic traditional hair styles. Lead stylist Danilo, for L’Oréal Professionnel used clip in braids in contrasting colors to create the look. Density Spray was used to mold the extensions, which were pulled back into an asymmetrical pony tail.

Makeup by Charlotte Willer for Maybelline

Face: Dream Liquid Mousse.
Eyes: Eye Shadow Quad in Give Me Gold. Gold shadow was applied to the crease. (Also used to highlight inner corners, brow bones, and tops of cheekbones.) Copper shadow was used on the crease, extending out into a cat’s eye shape. Yellow shadow was swept over the entire lid. Followed by black liner under lower lashes, also creating a cat’s eye. The look was finished with multiple coats of Falsies mascara.
Lips: Tempting Toffee Lipgloss #55 for a pink look. And Deep Red Lipstick #645 for a more dramatic lip.
