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.

CAROLINA HERRERA SPRING-SUMMER 2018 035

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.

Via TRESemmé.

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.

LIBERTINE SPRING/SUMMER 2018: BACKSTAGE

LIBERTINE SPRING-SUMMER 2018 029

Libertine’s NYFW shows are another reminder that yes, there are still SOME designers left showing in New york who take chances, and have fun with their collections and shows.

LIBERTINE SPRING-SUMMER 2018 021

Backstage, lead nail artist Heather Reynosa and the CND Design Lab created another standout, funky look that incorporated aspects of the eclectic “punk couture” collection. The nails were truly “wearable art”.

LIBERTINE SPRING-SUMMER 2018 004

Crystals, fringe, skulls, safety pins, bird heads, dollar signs, venus fly traps, vials of “blood”, and even miniature “pills” decorated the nails, which had been handcrafted over a 3 month period before the show.

JEREMY SCOTT S/S 2018: BACKSTAGE

Jeremy Scott S-S 2018 016

Jeremy Scott’s fashion shows are vibrant, colorful affairs in the sea of NYFW “sameness”. Along with the always funky and fun clothing, it’s the perfect environment to catch some of the most innovative and creative beauty brands in the business at work.

Backstage, the ever trendsetting CND showcased bright neon nails, with glitter dipped fingertips. Created by CND Creative Ambassador Miss Pop, the look perfectly complimented the intergalactic space odyssey themed collection by Scott.

Jeremy Scott S-S 2018 006

After dusting the fingers with silver glitter, the CND team applied nails painted with 2 alternating shades of CND Shellac. Hot Pop Pink, and a neon orange from the upcoming Spring 2018 collection. The oval shaped nails also alternated both gloss, and matte topcoats. Shellac Matte Top Coat created the matte look.

Frequent Jeremy Scott collaborator and MAC Key Makeup Artist Kabuki created a more subtle look than usual for this season’s runway show.

Studio Waterweight Foundation, and Studio Correct and Conceal palette were used to lightly correct and create “newborn baby skin”. For the eyes, lashes were curled, and eyebrows were brushed upward. But no mascara was used. A sheer lip color was then applied in matching tones to mimic each model’s natural lip shade. To finish the look, crystals were dotted under models’ eyes to incorporate the “bling” of the collection.

To complete the behind the scenes looks, Wella Professionals Global Creative Director and ghd Ambassador, Eugene Souleiman created “sassy” party girl hair styles, unique to each model.

Souleimain said: ““I wanted to create something wearable that is unique to each models individual character. In the past we have created strong, conceptual looks that embrace the mood of the clothes and the statement Jeremy is making. This season the statement is, there is no statement. The hair is relaxed and beautiful. I want every girl to look in the mirror and like the way they look, then leave the show wearing the look.”

To get the look:
1. Blow dry wet hair to straighten and lengthen using ghd Air Hairdryer and Wella Professionals EIMI Perfect Me to hold hair in place
2. Prep hair with Wella Professionals EIMI Extra Volume Mousse, pressing into the hair rather than brushing through to add sharpness and definition and then pull hair back and shape into ponytail ensuring hair is high enough
3. Starting at the roots, use ghd Platinum styler to work downwards, adding more tension as you pull hair down to craft a sleek, straight look. Let hair cool down and then brush out the pony
4. To finish the look spray Wella Professionals EIMI Stay Firm for a strong, controlled finish — VIA WELLA.
