This season I’m only covering a few shows, my favorites. Being my favorite designer, I jumped at the opporunity to go backstage to Zac Posen again this year as some of my career highlights have been with him including my first fashion show and a private meet and greet with the designer himself at his show room (see post). Unbelievable. And I’ll tell you, no one knows ‘rich girl hair’ like him. Here’s my experience this year, through photos.
Some of the models hair was colored prior to the show with John Frieda’s Precision Foam Hair Color to pump up or down their color for added shine. ”Rich girl hair is all about texture, solid color shine,” remarked Harry Josh, John Frieda colorist. ”It creates an expensive look.”
Inspired by lounge singer, Lena Horne, the look represented a strong, yet delicate socialite.
Top models walked in the show including Coco Rocha, Naomi Campbell and Karolina Kurkova.
Essie used shades ranging in depth to match all of the models skin tones to elongate the hands. Shades used: Glamour Purse, Brooch the Subject, A Crewed Interest and Not Just A Pretty Face.
“Because we’re working with various skintones, we wanted to do something equally flattering to everyone, so we went with a strong lash look by using two pairs of lashes intergrated on each girl,” commented Kabuki, the lead makeup artist from MAC cosmetics.”
