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.

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.

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.

SUNO F/W 2012: Backstage

SUNO F-W 2012 112

For their fall show, SUNO’s trademark quirky prints took a decidedly military inspiration, an influence also evident in their backstage beauty looks.

SUNO F-W 2012 001

Kérastase lead stylist Odile Gilbert created an imperfect “knotty chignon on the side”, a style that would be easy for the average woman to DIY.

SUNO F-W 2012 024

To get the look:
Hair was prepped with Kérastase Lotion Densitive, and Kérastase Mousse Substantive. Next, hair was blow dried straight, and parted on the side.

SUNO F-W 2012 027

After twisting hair up into a chignon, front pieces of hair were removed from the bun to give it a messy look. Kérastase Double Force Controle Ultime Hairspray was used to hold the hair in place.

The finished look:

MAC key artist Carole Colombani created a makeup look that was “half party girl, half soldier”.

SUNO F-W 2012 034

To get the look:
MAC Face and Body Foundation was used to create a beautiful, but not overdone complexion. Pro Sculpting Cream in Copper Beach was mixed with Creamblend Blush in Ladyblush to create a rosy glow on cheeks. No product was used on lips. Eyes were lined in Eye Kohl in Teddy, and Pro Longwear Eye Shadow in Mauveless was used on lids. Pressed Pigments in Day Gleam and Deeply Dashing were dusted on to add shimmer and depth to the look.

Editorial Outtakes: Preetma

Preetma2

While browsing files on my external hard drive last week, I came across these shots of Preetma Singh, from a Spring editorial I shot for a client– that was never published. They’re too beautiful not to share with the rest of the world, so I’m posting some of the outtakes here.

Preetma4
The shoot (about a girl getting ready for a night on the town) took place in the Warren Tricomi salon, on Manhattan’s UES.

Preetma3
One of my favorite shots. I love this multi-watch look!

Not only is Preetma beautiful, but she’s also amazingly intelligent, and kind!
An attorney who now works at VOGUE, you can catch her inspiring outfit posts, and life adventures on her blog Working Girl, Esq. Seriously–her blog is one of the few style blogs I still read on a regular basis. She’s right up there with Susie Bubble on my list of style bloggers who actually stimulate my creativity and make me want to dress better, and is one of my favorite street style subjects to capture at NYFW.

Loeffler Randall Spring 2011 Shoes:

I’m usually not a big fan of posting publicity photos, or photos I didn’t shoot myself here at The Greyest Ghost. That is unless I’m promoting another photographer, or I find the quality of a press photo or an editorial absolutely amazing. Luckily these photos from the Loeffler Randall Spring 2011 campaign, shot by Jamie Isaia, not only promote something I like (and want!) they’re totally beautiful!

After seeing some of the shoes in person at the S/S ’11 SUNO presentation, I fell in love with the patterned flat sandals in particular:

INSPIRATION: The designers say it best:
“Our collection this season was inspired by Georges Lepape’s colorful illustrations for the Ballet Russes, and the textural details of vintage French Biological Fish prints. We sought to make the collection feel ethereal and floating, gentle and breezy as if suspended in water or air. The silhouettes reflect a return to ladylike sophistication and shape: contained, but billowing, fraying at the edges, embracing perfect imperfections.”
–Max Osterweis and Erin Beatty of SUNO. Via Talking Makeup

The shoes, a collaboration with Loeffler Randall, were THE talk of twitter after the show:

VERDICT: Consistently one of the best lines of prints in the fashion world. Suno’s spring collection is bright, fun, and the embodiment of happiness. With the addition of their shoe collaboration with Loeffler Randall, if Suno has somehow flown under your fashion radar before, you won’t stay unaware for long— You’re guaranteed to be seeing their name on spring’s “must have” lists everywhere.
