Snap Packer Celebs Backstage - 2016

The scene backstage at Gotham Hall during Style Fashion Week.  To the left, in the  black New York T, one of the celeb models taking part in the Andrew Warren Just Drew show – Tiffany Trump. (This was the 22 year old’s first runway show.) Other celeb models getting their hair done in this photo include Elissa Johnson (daughter of Magic Johnson), Gaia Matisse (great great granddaughter of the painter Henri Matisse), Reya Benitez (daughter of Jellybean Benitez ), Kyra Kennedy (daughter of Robert F. Kennedy, Jr) and the back of Edward Tricomi’s head. I didn’t get a good or finished hair photo any of the girls because I was totally concentrating on hair shots, and no one told me who was there. Missed opportunities! To see the lead article in the New York Times Style Section on the Snap Packers, today’s Rat Pack, the designer, Andrew Warren, and the girls in this photo, click HERE
