JENNY PACKHAM F/W 2016: BACKSTAGE

JENNY PACKHAM FALL-WINTER 2016 017

Jenny Packham’s Fall 2016 collection was influenced by the sparkle and glam of the 1980’s party scene, a topic which carried over into the hair and makeup inspiration as well.

Makeup legend Bobbi Brown, using her eponymous line, created a glittery, yet imperfect look that appeared “as if models had done their makeup on the way to the show in a taxi”.

Michelle Saunders for essie developed nail art based on a star textile from the runway collection. Two looks were created, one using a light, natural color, and another using a very pale purple.

To get the look:
Look one: Apply First Base Coat, followed by two coats of Mademoiselle. Using a small nail art brush, paint a petite gold star on both the thumb, and one other finger using Good as Gold. Finish with Good to Go Top Coat.

Look two: Apply First Base Coat, followed by two coats of Lilacism. Using a small nail art brush, paint a petite gold star on both the thumb, and one other finger using Good as Gold. Finish with Good to Go Top Coat.

CANDELA S/S 2013

CANDELA S-S 2013 32

The Spring 2013 Candela presentation was one of those rare fashion shows where I wasn’t “working”, wasn’t covering any beauty brands– I just got to relax and enjoy the clothes and shoes.

And boy, were they pretty. In fact everything about the show was gorgeous, in a soft bohemian way. The hair & makeup, the clothes and shoes, and the magnificent set design. The floral backdrops of the presentation not only looked appealing, they smelled wonderful too!

Oscar de la Renta Bridal 2013

Oscar de la Renta Bridal 2013 30

Yesterday, instead of  dreading another manic Monday, I spent my morning deeply submerged in the world of Oscar de la Renta Bridal.

Oscar de la Renta Bridal 2013 61

This was my very first Bridal show, which I can say was even more magical than a “regular” fashion show. I was one of three photographers given a unprecendented 3+ hours of show access, chosen to “Live Pin” the show on Pinterest. The project totally blew up on twitter, and has resulted in some pretty crazy press.

Everything about the show was beautiful. From the so gorgeous you could cry dresses, to the flowers– and little flower girls– even the always on point musical choices. I’ve long felt that Oscar can do no wrong, but seeing all the lacy, delicate and intricately detailed bridal gowns up close and personal just proved to me what a mastery the man has of his craft. Some of my other favorite designers still have occasional seasons of “misses”. But never, ever Oscar.

I absolutely love love loved that “something blue” was incorporated into the show. As one Pinterest commenter mentioned, a handful of the looks were very “Spanish Royalty”, which Oscar being Oscar, is oh so fitting.

Maybe it’s just my photojournalism education making me want to “keep it real”, but as usual, I’ve just done a subtle brightening of colors. A fashion show isn’t exactly the place to go mad abusing photoshop actions on your photos. And really, everything was already so exquisite, why mess with perfection?

Below, more of my favorites from the Pinterest board, with a few never before seen shots thrown in for good measure.

Never have I heard a show’s audience audibly gasp like they did when the red finale gown appeared on the runway. So very “Queen Isabella, meets Lydia’s wedding gown in Beetlejuice”.
