THOM BROWNE S/S 2017

THOM BROWNE SPRING-SUMMER 2017 022 Thom Browne’s shows never cease to blow my mind. Season after season, they just keep getting better, more theatrical, and even more innovative than ever. The gorgeous clothing is so consistently fabulous, so photogenic, that I feel privileged seeing its runway debut, and end up still thinking about it years later.

For Spring, the show took place in a colorful tiled set, which led VOGUE to liken it to a ‘Stepford Wives’ pool party’. A description I found quite accurate.  Upon entering the venue, photographers were given white Thom Browne lab coat-style jackets to wear, to further the immaculate illusion.

Backstage, the beauty look focused on big bombshell hair, “fake” tans, and multi-colored pastel lips and nails.

THOM BROWNE SPRING-SUMMER 2017 006

Sil Bruinsma for MAC used MAC’s Pro Longwear Foundation in NC42 to create the orange, fake tan look on models faces. Models got pastel blue, or green lips, depending on skin tone. Liberal layers of mascara were applied to lashes to create a smudged look. With the makeup being finished off with a line of white acrylic paint looping around models’ necks to show a clear line between their fake tanned faces, and untanned bodies.

THOM BROWNE SPRING-SUMMER 2017 002

Bumble and Bumble’s Jimmy Paul created a voluminous retro influenced hairdo to complement the collections old school pool party vibe. (After the hair was curled and set, large floral swim caps were placed on model’s heads until the show.)

TO GET THE LOOK: 1. Apply bumble and bumble Prep. Spray thickening hairspray and Surf spray throughout. 2. Pin into a curling iron set. 3. Once hair is set, let down and brush out curls. 4. Backcomb hair to add volume and lift at the roots. 5. Keep the look in place with Strong Finish. – Via Bumble and Bumble.

TANYA TAYLOR S/S 2017

TANYA TAYLOR SPRING-SUMMER 2017 019

Tanya Taylor’s collections are always a riot of color. I’ve been following her line since almost the beginning of her career. And love that I can always look forward to seeing fantastic patterns, and bright colors in her designs each season. TANYA TAYLOR SPRING-SUMMER 2017 016

The Spring collection’s “island” inspiration was very apparent to the viewer. These were happy, vacation ready clothes, that just viewing made you want to jet off to a far off locale.

TANYA TAYLOR SPRING-SUMMER 2017 008

TANYA TAYLOR SPRING-SUMMER 2017 025

As strong as the clothing collection is, Tanya Taylor also consistently features fun, innovative beauty looks each season. While the hair and makeup was more relaxed, and vaction-y, the standout beauty feature of Spring was the funky rainbow wave nail art.

Morgan Taylor Lead Nail Artist Gina Edwards painted each nail with Morgan Taylor New School Nude as a base coat. Next, each tip with hand-painted with half-moon designs, using a selection of multiple Morgan Taylor polishes. Featured colors that were used include Orange You Glad, West Coast Cool, Ahead of the Game, Tropical Punch, Mint Chocolate Chip, Tokyo A Go Go, Sweet Escape, and Deja Blue.

Allen Wood for Bumble and Bumble led the hair team, who created the island friendly hair style, inspired by Tanya’s trips to Cuba and Capri. To get the look: “Mist Surf Spray onto small sections of hair and twist hair around the fingers, alternating the direction of the twist so hair doesn’t become uniform. Blow dry and scrunch hair to create an organic texture. Create a natural center part and tuck hair behind the ears. Once twists have cooled, break up hair by raking with fingers. Finish with Dryspun Finish throughout roots to add volume.” –Instructions via Bumble and Bumble.

SPRING 2017 NYFW SNEAK PEEKS: DAY EIGHT

The eighth and final day of NYFW’s Spring 2017 season was a special day for me, because I got to live out a dream. The dream of finally attending a Marc Jacobs show.

Thanks to my collaboration with Tumblr, I was invited to the show, and was able to photograph some of it from up in the balcony. For those of you who did not know before– I was a member of Tumblr’s SS17 NYFW team, and was sent to photograph many shows on their behalf. (You can read the official announcement here.)

But without further ado, here are my favorite photos from the Marc Jacobs’ Spring 2017 show, which completely blew me away with its beauty:

ULLA JOHNSON F/W 2016: BACKSTAGE

ULLA JOHNSON FALL-WINTER 2016- BACKSTAGE 013

Amongst the huge list of Fall 2016 NYFW shows I attended, Ulla Johnson’s show definitely wins the “Best Hair” award. I absolutely fell in love with this epic, tassel-embellished braid that I found backstage. ULLA JOHNSON FALL-WINTER 2016- BACKSTAGE 002

To get the look:
Spray dry hair with water to dampen and apply PHYTO Phytovolume Actif Volumizing Spray throughout. Smooth out the hairline using The Beachwaver Co. Coast Pro Ceramic Styling Iron. Part the hair to the left and blast with The Beachwaver Co Pro Dry. Create a diagonal part through the back of the head, splitting the hair in two.

ULLA JOHNSON FALL-WINTER 2016- BACKSTAGE 016

French braid the hair along the diagonal, starting at the crown of the head to just behind the ear, and repeat on the opposite side.

ULLA JOHNSON FALL-WINTER 2016- BACKSTAGE 005

ULLA JOHNSON FALL-WINTER 2016- BACKSTAGE 004 Spray PHYTO Phytolaque Soie Finishing Spray for added texture. Gently pin the two braids using bobby pins. Finish the look with PHYTO Huile Soyeuse Lightweight Hydrating Oil. Embellish with a tassel (as seen on the runway). -Via Beauty.com

Models’ skin was pampered with a dose of Dr. Hauschka products, before makeup application began.

To start: Cleanse the skin with Dr. Hauschka Smoothing Cleansing Milk, followed by Dr. Hauschka Facial Toner.  Apply Dr. Hauschka Rose Day Cream all over the face then gently dab Dr. Hauschka Daily Hydrating Eye Cream on the outer corner of the eyes for added hydration.

The sun-kissed, fresh faced look was assembled as follows: Apply Tarte Amazonian Clay BB Tinted Moisturizer evenly on the entire face. Conceal blemishes with Tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof Concealer where needed throughout the face. Layer Tarte Amazonian Clay Tartlette Matte Palette’s Force of Nature, with Tarte Showstopper Clay Palette’s Park Ave Princess, then lightly dust over the lids to create a sheer, tea-stain-like finish.

Prep the lips with Dr. Hauschka Lip Balm then layer Tarte Amazonian Butter Lipstick in Park Ave Princess with Tarte Lipsurgence Power Pigment in Exposed. Create a matte, stained finish by dusting Tarte Amazonian Clay Tartlette Palette’s Force of Nature, and Tarte Rainforest After Dark Palette’s Bare to Explore over the lips. Give the look a creamy glow by pairing Dr. Hauschka Eye Balm with Tarte Rainforest After Dark Colored Clay Eye & Cheek Palette’s Champagne Highlighter, and apply to the inner corners of the eyes, as well as the cheeks. Finish the look with Tarte Amazonian Clay Smooth Operator Finishing Powder. – Via Beauty.com

ULLA JOHNSON FALL-WINTER 2016- BACKSTAGE 020

To complete the look, a soft mauve manicure finished off the nails. One coat of Londontown Lakur in Mauve Over was applied to nails, and set with Londontown Kur Protective Matte Top Coat.
