The youngest fab fashionista, Violet, was photographed backstage at New York Fashion Week for Badgley Mischka’s Spring 2016 Show. She was wearing a very fashionable headband with her fab fashions, from head to toe. Her Mother, Emily, is a Badgley Mishka Fashion Designer and it was noted Violet was wearing embellishments on her dress, and forehead, like those on the runway.

Phone Lights Up Mac Faces @ #NYFW - 2016

Clever Clever. Seen on Scene. Some smart Mac makeup artists used a smart phone mounted with handy makeup and brushes to perfect the makeup on models backstage just before the shows started. The lighting was equivalent to that of a powerful camera and it stayed steady bathing the model’s face with flattering and practical light. We saw the iPhone 6 and Galaxy in use and photographed a model getting a finishing touch up at the #AAU #NYFW show. We also photographed a close-up (bottom) of one in use at the Badgley Mischka show for Spring 2015.  Inspiration for all makeup artists backstage.  Brilliant.

 Modern Brigitte Bardot by Peter Gray - 2015

Modern Brigitte Bardot bouffant with loose piece-y textured hair by WorldGreat Peter Gray for the Badgley Mischka New York Fashion for Fall 2015.  Inspired by the baroque embellishment traditions of the matador, combined with the severity and restraint of Modernist architecture. There are long versions of this but I like the shorter lob version, as here. It looks more modern to me.

Back views and baroque roses in the hair, see the next photo on this blog, and more longer versions, how-to’s, fashions and accessories when you click HERE

Loose piece-y textured hair by Peter Gray at the fab Badgley Mischka Fall 2015 New York Fashion Week Show. So beautiful. Hair not perfectly in place but with a gorgeous and modern finish, without looking messy. Two ornate gilded roses, in different colors, were added to nestle at the back of the glam styles.

Tom Pecheux’s eye makeup for the Badgley Mischka NY Fashion Week Fall 2015 Show featured a square wing, not a pointy one, which extended past the edge of the eye. He used Mac’s Blacktrack topped with Petrol Blue, both from the Fluidline, then he added false eyelashes. Lips were a soft pink. For more from this show, click HERE

Romantic Dreamy Hair – 2013

 Romantic Dreamy Hair – 2013

Photos: © Helen Oppenheim. Collage by helenoppenheim.com

Romantic hair inspired by fairies, woodland nymphs and the haunting beauty of Max Reinhardt’s 1935 film “A Midsummer’s Night Dream” was the theme for Peter Gray’s hair for the Badgley Mischka Spring 2013 New York Fashion Week show.

The ribbon-like hair floated angelically, some accented with a tiny flower or two nestling here and there. Small random crimps gave an airy effect and added to the magic. A braided shelf acted as a base for the complicated carefully conceived dreamy hair, lovely for beautiful brides. For more romance and how-to’s, click HERE:
