CAROLINA HERRERA SPRING/SUMMER 2018: BACKSTAGE

CAROLINA HERRERA SPRING-SUMMER 2018 060

Years ago, I photographed one of Carolina Herrera’s Bridal Fashion Week shows for BRIDES Magazine. And it was one of the most elegant shows I’ve ever attended. The Spring 2018 show was no different.

CAROLINA HERRERA SPRING-SUMMER 2018 035

Held in the Met Museum (the first time a fashion show has been allowed to take place inside!), the show was gorgeous and magical in a way I haven’t experienced since the final show by the late and great Oscar de la Renta.

Backstage, Morgan Taylor Lead Artist Gina Edwards designed the nail art look, which consisted of an elegant “cloud-like white” nail, created using “Heaven Sent” nail lacquer.

The finished look:

Makeup wise, MAC Cosmetics provided the beauty look, which focused on fresh smooth skin, and a kohl-rimmed eye.

Finishing things off, beauty wise, TRESemmé NYFW Stylist Odile Gilbert presented a “sleek is chic” smooth, straight hair look.

CAROLINA HERRERA SPRING-SUMMER 2018 010

CAROLINA HERRERA SPRING-SUMMER 2018 018

To get the hair look:
Start by washing hair with TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shampoo and Conditioner. Generously spray TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Heat Protect Spray to damp hair, and apply TRESemmé TRES Two Extra Hold Mousse to the roots (before blow drying!). Create a clean center part and blow-dry, use a curling iron to soften the ends and create subtle curve. Take the section of hair (before the ear) on each side and secure underneath the remaining hair with an elastic band at the nape of the neck. To finish, secure the look with TRESemmé TRES Two Freeze Hold Hair Spray for a neat and even consistency.

The collection was just as beautiful and elegant as one would expect from Carolina Herrera. Featuring bold, vibrant colors, embroidered gowns, and flirty tulle accents. I would wear almost every one of the stunning dresses presented.

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.

TANYA TAYLOR SPRING-SUMMER 2017 037

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.

SUNO F/W 2016: BACKSTAGE

SUNO FALL-WINTER 2016- BACKSTAGE 015 Beauty wise, SUNO is a brand known for having gorgeous, yet understated backstage beauty looks for its shows. Natural, but with a touch of quirky. For Fall, Odile Gilbert for Kérastase created a “graphic yet chic” ponytail, featuring velvet satin ribbon, to texturize models’ hair.

SUNO FALL-WINTER 2016- BACKSTAGE 007

To get the look:

1. Prep and wash hair with Nutritive Bain Satin 1 and Nutritive Lait Vital.
2. On damp hair, apply the NEW! L’Incroyable Blowdry Heat Lotion all over the hair and Crème de la Crème to just the ends.
3. Next, part the hair down the middle and roughly blow-dry. After dry, apply Powder Bluff at the roots (for greasy roots) or V.I.P (for extra volume).
4. Then, pull hair back into a low ponytail and secure with an elastic. Gently loosen hair around the nape of the neck to give a lived in, natural look.
5. Spray hair all over with Laque Dentelle.
6. Next, take ribbon and wrap the ponytail, crisscrossing the ribbon down the hair. Tie the ribbon once 3/4 of the way down the ponytail.
7. Finish the style by spraying Laque Dentelle all over for a flexible, versatile hold.

SUNO FALL-WINTER 2016- BACKSTAGE 014

NARS Director of Global Artistry James Boehmer created a clean, natural look that made the models appear “flushed and wind burned”, inspired by “aristocratic nomads”.

Products used to get the look include: On the face: NARSSkin Aqua Gel Luminous Oil-Free Moisturizer, Stick Concealer, Soft Velvet Loose Powder. On Cheeks: Leslie Audacious Lipstick On Brows: Oural Brow Gel On Lips: Unspeakable Velvet Lip Glide. Also dabbed on cheekbones and the forehead to create the sun-kissed look.

SUNO FALL-WINTER 2016- BACKSTAGE 012

To complete the look, Danielle Candido for Morgan Taylor created a dark, strong neutral nail.

To get the look: 2 coats of Latte Please were painted onto the model’s natural nails. The nail was then topped off with Need for Speed high shine top coat.

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”.

BETSEY JOHNSON- SPRING-SUMMER 2016 084

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

BETSEY JOHNSON- SPRING-SUMMER 2016 023

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

BETSEY JOHNSON- SPRING-SUMMER 2016 076

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.

BETSEY JOHNSON- SPRING-SUMMER 2016 102

BETSEY JOHNSON- SPRING-SUMMER 2016 030

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.

BETSEY JOHNSON- SPRING-SUMMER 2016 042

BETSEY JOHNSON- SPRING-SUMMER 2016 020

The third and final look was a psychedelic marbled manicure.

BETSEY JOHNSON- SPRING-SUMMER 2016 005

To get the look:
Create a marbled nail using All White Now, Don’t Touch Me I’m Radioactive, Pink Flame-ingo, Sitting Pretty, Don’t Worry Be Brilliant, and Water Baby.

BETSEY JOHNSON- SPRING-SUMMER 2016 044

BETSEY JOHNSON- SPRING-SUMMER 2016 077

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!
