SELF PORTRAIT F/W 2016

SELF PORTRAIT FALL-WINTER 2016 037

Self Portrait is one of the most exciting recent additions to the New York Fashion Week lineup. I’ve been a fan of the brand for a while now, after discovering them on ASOS.com, and I was thrilled to see they’d decided to start showing the new collections in NYC last year. Known for innovative mixes of lace with unconventional fabrics on dresses, the Fall collection included the addition of separates, turtlenecks, and bomber jackets. Backstage, Bumble and Bumble stylist Jimmy Paul developed a look that complimented the fresh faced makeup, with heavy, fringe-y clip in bangs– used to create “uniformity” amongst the models.

To get the look:  Apply Bb.Gel into hands and pull hair into a high ponytail and secure with elastic, creating a loop in the hair and allowing the rest of the ponytail to fall. For added shine, apply more Bb.Gel. Attach a clip-in bang and dampen with Prep. Each bang was razor cut to personalize the look to each model. – Via Bumble and Bumble

Gucci Westman for Tata Harper beautified models’ skin, creating a romantic, luminous, fresh faced look.

To get the look: Prep skin with Tata Harper Beautifying Face Oil, then use Reparative Moisturizer to achieve a radiant glow. Apply Restorative Eye Cream around the eyes to “refresh tired looking eyes”. Contour under cheekbones with a light bronzer, use nude lip gloss (with matching liner) to enhance lips, and apply matte brown eyeshadow to the top and bottom of eyes.

REEM ACRA BRIDAL SPRING 2014: BACKSTAGE

Reem Acra Spring 2014 Bridal- Backstage - 037

One of the best things about photographing bridal market week shows, is that it allows you to plan a million imaginary weddings in your head. Being up close and personal with so many gorgeous gowns, veils, and accessories inspires and endless stream of ideas. I’m now convinced if I ever get married, I’ll never be able to decide on just one dress.

Even if Reem Acra was the sole designer of wedding dresses in the world, choosing just one would still be a difficult task. Gowns in every cut and color were visible in her Spring ’14 collection. Which also featured some of the most unique wedding veils and wraps I’ve ever come across.
