Betsey Johnson is always one of my favorite shows to cover. Backstage is like a party. There’s a DJ, candy, little champagne bottles to drink with straws, balloons everywhere and signs that Betsey created to get the glam squad, models and her stylists pumped for the show. Of course they’re all signed “xo Betsey.”
The designer was debuting her “He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not” collection on Valentine’s Day. Peter Gray was the lead for Redken who worked with angled, blunt black bob wigs inspired by the Sassoon movie. Of course just a simple wig for a Betsey Johnson show wasn’t enough, so the team spray painted a dust of gold around a lace pattern to add a fresh fun feel. To keep the wig looking shiny as the models walked the runway, Gray used Redken Shine Flash 02.
Butter London’s Nonie took charge of the nails customizing a shade with the working title, Wallis inspired by Wallis Simpson, which is definitely going to go in production
in the fall. It’s a tarnished greenish gold.
Charlotte Miller was the lead for Maybelline who used the Studio Eye Quad in Midnight Excitement to create the eye look, which is coming out in September. Of course she used Falsies Mascara. Below is a video of Miller creating the whole look on a model with step-by-step instructions. It’s awesome!
