JEREMY SCOTT F/W 2016: BACKSTAGE

JEREMY SCOTT FALL-WINTER 2016 037

Backstage at Jeremy Scott — one of the most fun– and happy shows of fashion week, the mood was pure excitement. With as much careful consideration given to the beauty looks as the clothes, the big hair and bright makeup I found was definitely not disappointing. Eugene Souleiman, Global Creative Director Wella Professionals, created an over the top, “slightly Barbarella” inspired big hair look.

To get the look: “Eugene started by prepping the hair using EIMI Sugar Lift with EIMI Perfect Setting on the ends. Over-applying the product gave the hair a chemically processed texture, making it easier to style and giving it the fifties look that is synonymous with classic pin-up style. On creating the look, Eugene shares: ‘We blew the hair out at the roots with EIMI Sugar Lift to give us a great base for the backcombing. It makes the hair feel a little bit more porous and processed which is wonderful for keeping volume.'”

“Once the hair was dried using a large round brush, it was left to set in wide rollers before being brushed out.”

JEREMY SCOTT FALL-WINTER 2016 024 “Eugene applied EIMI Stay Essential hairspray to hold the style and teased the hair to make it even bigger. At the end of the day, perfect pin-up hair was the finishing touch that brought together the Barbie-esque, decades-inspired ‘Cowboys and Poodles’ runway look.” -Instructions via WELLA Professionals

MAC Cosmetic’s Key Makeup Artist, Kabuki (one of my favorite makeup geniuses of NYFW!) created a “Cowgirls in Space” pin up inspired look to compliment the funky collection. “I wanted the look to feel fresh, and very Jeremy Scott”. Bright pink lips were the focal point of the look, with a swipe of custom mixed electric blue eyeliner to enhance the eye.

Last but not least, another one of my favorite backstage pro’s: Simcha Whitehill, AKA Miss Pop Nails, envisioned a stunning bright pastel nail look for each model. JEREMY SCOTT FALL-WINTER 2016 012

“To complement Jeremy Scott’s Spring 2016 collection, Miss Pop used a line up of our five best bright lacquer shades. She painted elongated oval nail tips in each of the five shades, then added a cartoon-like flare on the pinkies in Alpine Snow to give the nails a shiny plastic look.” – Via OPI

Colors used include: Shorts Story, A Good Mandarin is Hard to Find, The Sun Never Sets, I just can’t Cope-Acabana, and To Infinity and Blue-yond. “One coat of one of each of those shades and then one coat of Kyoto pearl to get this muted metallic bright.” – Via Miss Pop

JEREMY SCOTT SPRING/SUMMER 2016: BACKSTAGE

Untitled

Backstage at a Jeremy Scott show is usually one of the most colorful, fun, and lively environments one can possibly encounter during New York Fashion Week.

I always enjoy shows with more theatrical themes, that carry over not just in the collection, but to the beauty looks, and production as well. So this show was my own idea of thematic heaven! For Spring/Summer 2016, Jeremy Scott was inspired by John Waters, specifically the movie crybaby. If you haven’t ever seen it–please watch it asap and prepare to be inspired by the amazing beauty and fashion, and maybe fall in love with Johnny Depp a little bit.

To achieve that “Crybaby” look, big, bold hair is essential. WELLA’s Eugene Souleiman delivered, in the form of giant wigs, teased and backcombed to achieve the highest volume possible, then curled.

Peter Som S/S 2013: Backstage

PETER SOM S-S 2013 BACKSTAGE 030

When you attend one of Peter Som’s fashion shows, you’re always guaranteed at least one sure thing– there will be COLOR. From the clothes, to the hair and makeup. Peter’s shows present a rainbow of hues to dazzle the eye.

Peter’s spring concept was “women on the verge”, about a slightly unraveled woman who walks the line between uptown and downtown, and is “a bit undone, but still chic”.

Jeremy Scott S/S 2013

Welcome to the first guest post from my assistant NYFW photographer, Julio Cortez!

Pre-show with designer Jeremy Scott – September 12th, 2012

The last stop of my NYFW show calendar was one I anticipated and needed the most. Jeremy Scott knows how to have fun, treating a crowded Milk Made audience to nothing short of a good time.

I want to thank Rachel again (and again and again) for the opportunity in assisting her with Spring 2013 show coverage for the Greyest Ghost. I may have survived my first fashion week, but I felt like I was going to fall over and die on more than one occasion when I wasn’t lost in the moment while shooting.

Jeremy Scott F/W 2012: Backstage

IMG_6728

For the past two seasons of nyfw, I’ve been seeing photos from the Jeremy Scott show, and wishing I could go. This february, the fashion week scheduling gods smiled upon me, and I finally got my chance!

IMG_5788

Dashing Diva’s Patti Yankee used Nail Bliss Nail Bling on models’ nails to create a techno, computer-esque nail to correspond with the 90’s raver/internet inspired hair and makeup.

IMG_5766
The pattern on nails was meant to mimic keyboard keys!

IMG_5771

Eugene Souleiman for Wella Professionals created a totally outrageous, geometric rainbow hair style that turned models into “avatars” of themselves.

IMG_5906

To get the look:
1. Hair was braided into corn rows to “anchor” the colored extensions.
IMG_5916
2. Each hair piece was sewn in individually.
IMG_5910
3. Colored pieces were woven into the center anchor.

IMG_6211
Each model’s hair took 30-40 minutes.

Kabuki for MAC created a look he described as “rave revisited”, directly inspired by the collection. 90’s Gwen Stefani, computer culture, and the internet helped create his vision of the ss13 Jeremy Scott girl.

IMG_5802

To get the look:
MAC Sculpt Foundation was used to prep skin. NC15 Chromagraphic Pencil was used to line lips, which were then filled in using a combination of Lip Mix in Blue and Cyan. Goldmine Eye Shadow was used on lids, with Coffee Pencil used on the lower lash line. Using eyelash glue, 19 bindi’s (handmade the night before!) were applied to the foreheads of each girl, with a flashing LED light (which Kabuki found online) in center.

Peter Som S/S 2012: Backstage

Peter Som’s Spring 2012 show was exploding with bursts of colorful– both on the runway and backstage.

IMG_5701

WELLA Professionals creative director Eugene Souleiman created a “rich girl gone bad”, Courtney Love meets the 1960’s influenced hair style that wasn’t “too ladylike”, to contrast with the ultra-feminine floral looks of the collection.

Extensions, waiting to be applied!

To get the look: Wella Professionals Perfect Styling Blow Dry Lotion and Velvet Amplifier were applied to damp hair, then blown dry. Hair was parted at the side, then curled, and misted with Wella Professionals Pro Ocean Spray. Next, Souleiman ran his fingers through hair, to tousel and break up curls.

IMG_5685

To finish the look, Wella Professionals color ambassador Aura Friedman added platinum extensions colored with pale rose-gold hues (shadowed at the root to help disguise the extensions) to add a 3-D look and focal point to hair. Extensions were secured with bobby pins to the side of the part, where a veil of hair was brushed over top to allow the color to peek through.

Another reason the rose-gold tones were chosen? They flatter all skin tones and hair colors.

MAC’s Tom Pecheux used a combination of MAC Fig. 1 Eye Shadow with MAC Pro Indian Ink Small Eye Shadow Pro Palette blended above the crease for a retro inspired look. To finish the face, MAC Innocence, Beware! Lipstick was rubbed onto lips for a subtle stained effect.

ZOYA lead nail tech Sunshine Outing used ZOYA’s Erin to create a light “micro-glazed” effect.

Overall, I thought the edgy yet still feminine beauty direction complemented the clothes quite well!
