Going backstage and to the runway of the Carolina Herrera FW 15 collection was such a great experience...I actually got slightly emotional during the runway. You see I had the best fashion moment right before the show!! Standing next to fashion queen the editor-in-chief of Vogue Anna Wintour and Carolina herself as she talked briefly with Anna about her knew collection!! Such a dream come true!!
As soon as I entered backstage I went to talk with the MAC key make up artist Diane Kendal (who was amazingly sweet)! She explained the inspiration for the make up was "Water Sirens"...the models were to look like they had just come out of the water. The lashes got glitter and gloss to create a wet (water drops) type of look. Eye gloss was put on the eye lids and the eyebrows and Sincere ray blush was used on the cheeks. Oh, Lady gloss was used on the lips to add a hint of drama to the look. They pulled inspiration from the materials from the collection which were based on the colors of the sea and reflected materials. I over heard someone from the Tresemme team saying the silver leather wraps on the ponytails were a last minute add on and luckily they was just the right amount for all the models hair! The silver leather wraps made a simple yet dramatic look to their sleek low ponytails!
Not only was it breathtaking to walk up next to the beautiful clothes and Manolo Blahniks but my heart about stopped watching Anna Wintour do the same...she is the fashion queen after all!!! Supermodel Karlie Kloss started the show and it was awesome being right next to her backstage seeing how tall she really is!! Miss Jay, Coco Rocha, June Ambrose and Olivia Palmero were some of the other celebs backstage as well!
Everything about this show from backstage to the runway felt like a fairytale...the way the models looked like water queens, the gorgeous gowns and the lights and music on the runway! But the clothes.....oh the clothes!!!! So beautifully detailed and every inch was fabulous!
