Red lips were hot news for Fall. And forever.  For something different, try these two-tone red lips by Makky for MAC Cosmetics, as seen at the Nanette Lepore Fall 2010 NY Fashion Week show. He used MAC’s Magenta Lip Pencil on the top, Lip Forever, a burgundy, on the bottom. Interesting but subtle. TDF. For some great hair and more lips from this show, click HERE

Bundle Up In The Snow, With Style - Fall 2014

It is almost time.  For the Fall 2016 Collections at New York Fashion Week.  Stay tuned.  In the meantime, be inspired by this interesting man with all his accessories and hair up to there I photographed in the freezing cold, in February, during NY Fashion Week for Fall 2014. Fab from head to toe.  He didn’t wait for me to find out who he was before hopping into a passing taxi. I blogged here on him the next day and later added him to the Scene 1 album on my website, click here:

Six months later, I was scrolling through Discover on Twitter, something I look at every so often, and there he was. Did a little research.  He is the Market & Accessories Director for Marie-Claire, known for his avant-garde style and impeccable taste. His name is Kyle Anderson, and he is also a Consultant, Stylist, Fashion Icon,  to be found on Twitter @KyleEditor

John Sahag Ponytail Extravaganza – 1997

John Sahag Ponytail Extravaganza – 1997

Photo: © David Webber

The legendary John Sahag somtimes sketched his hair ideas before a fashion show. As he did here for the Gen Art NY Fashion Week Show for Fall 1997. And look at the result of the bottom sketch! Not just a ponytail!

Hair was designed with a lot of action – for one designer, a ponytail extravaganza!  This show was a “Tour de Force” for John Sahag, always an original, and featured 8 up and coming fashion designers who each designed 10 outfits. Sahag and his Workshop Team created 8 different – and unique – hair looks, one for each designer. It’s worth a click to see the hair. At the end of the album, some of what went on behind the scenes, click here:
