CAROLINA HERRERA SPRING/SUMMER 2018: BACKSTAGE

CAROLINA HERRERA SPRING-SUMMER 2018 060

Years ago, I photographed one of Carolina Herrera’s Bridal Fashion Week shows for BRIDES Magazine. And it was one of the most elegant shows I’ve ever attended. The Spring 2018 show was no different.

Held in the Met Museum (the first time a fashion show has been allowed to take place inside!), the show was gorgeous and magical in a way I haven’t experienced since the final show by the late and great Oscar de la Renta.

Backstage, Morgan Taylor Lead Artist Gina Edwards designed the nail art look, which consisted of an elegant “cloud-like white” nail, created using “Heaven Sent” nail lacquer.

The finished look:

Makeup wise, MAC Cosmetics provided the beauty look, which focused on fresh smooth skin, and a kohl-rimmed eye.

Finishing things off, beauty wise, TRESemmé NYFW Stylist Odile Gilbert presented a “sleek is chic” smooth, straight hair look.

To get the hair look:
Start by washing hair with TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shampoo and Conditioner. Generously spray TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Heat Protect Spray to damp hair, and apply TRESemmé TRES Two Extra Hold Mousse to the roots (before blow drying!). Create a clean center part and blow-dry, use a curling iron to soften the ends and create subtle curve. Take the section of hair (before the ear) on each side and secure underneath the remaining hair with an elastic band at the nape of the neck. To finish, secure the look with TRESemmé TRES Two Freeze Hold Hair Spray for a neat and even consistency.

The collection was just as beautiful and elegant as one would expect from Carolina Herrera. Featuring bold, vibrant colors, embroidered gowns, and flirty tulle accents. I would wear almost every one of the stunning dresses presented.
