BETSEY JOHNSON S/S 2016: BACKSTAGE

BETSEY JOHNSON- SPRING-SUMMER 2016 111

I had no idea when I arrived backstage at Betsey Johnson’s Spring 2016 show that it would be her last. After 50 years in the industry, Betsey has retired from showing at NYFW!

Betsey’s shows were always guaranteed to be a highlight of fashion week, a bright spot in the sometimes dreary and over-serious show calendar. From her cartwheels, to her vibrant collections, to her over the top beauty looks backstage, her shows definitely won the award for “most fun”.

Danielle Candido for Morgan Taylor Lacquer created three incredibly looks to compliment the themes, AKA decades of the SS16 collection.

First, there was a sparkly red manicure, akin to Dorothy’s ruby slippers in The Wizard of Oz.

To get the look:
Apply one coat of Pretty Woman, followed by one coat of New York State of Mind glitter polish. Complete the nail by using 2 coats of glitter shade Rare as Rubies, and finish with Make it Last topcoat.

Look two was a “graphic mod” nail, in black and white.

To get the look:
Use one coat of All White Now. Using a nail brush, paint on various sized lines using Little Black Dress, and Could Have Foiled Me.

The Kryolan makeup team created two looks to compliment the different themes of the collection. A dark, smokey eye, and a graphic rainbow eye/eyebrow!

I’m so glad I was there to witness Betsey’s final show– which spanned all 50 decades of her career. She truly is a living fashion legend!

DESIGUAL S/S 2016: BACKSTAGE

SPRING-SUMMER 2016- DESIGUAL 042

DESIGUAL definitely wins the award for funkiest show of the season. With “Japanese Street Fashion” inspired hair, collaged blue jean nails, and an on trend coral lip, the backstage beauty for the SS16 show stood out amongst the straight hair, and neutral beauty looks commonly found among the rest.

Edward Lampley for amika created the two fun, braided hair styles for the show.
One, a more traditional corn row style, and a second winding zig-zag braid style, were distributed amongst the models.
