This is the Brazlian model Solange Wilvert photographed backstage at the Naeem Khan Bridal Fashion Week Show for Fall 2018.  She is wearing a high bun by Jon Reyman, over which a floral headpiece rests. The romantic dress, the bridal earrings, the makeup by Chika and Cheve Chan are all gorgeous.   And Solange is just as gorgeous inside and out. She was discovered at age 14 in Brazil, landed a NYC contract, and has since had three Vogue covers, been the face of Chanel, Calvin Klein, Fendi, Gucci, Stella McCartney and more. She has walked the runways of all the top designers, including Marc Jacobs, Karl Lagerfeld, Alexander McQueen, How could I miss, even if I photographed in the small space of the Designer’s Studio Workroom before the show!

Strong Statement Chignon @ AAU NYFW – 2018

Photo: Helen Oppenheim

The hair, for each of the designers at the Academy of Art University (AAU) Spring/Summer 2018 New York Fashion Week Show, was “modern, graphic, geometric and strong,” said Jon Reyman of his statement chignon flying straight out to there, and wrapped in silver wires. It was refreshing to see hair which is not messy for a change, that was distinctive, beautifully executed, and went with all the fashions by the talented graduating students from AAU’s School of Fashion. For a how-to, more versions, and the fashions for her and him, CLICK HERE

Keeping Warm With Nicholas K @ NYFW – 2014

Photo: Helen Oppenheim

Repost.  Brrr. It’s cold outside.  This fab fur hood was one of many great fashions for harsh, winter weather shown at the Nicholas K Fall/Winter 2014 New York Fashion Week Show.  It’s a winner, as were more fashions at this show, by the siblings, Nicholas and Christopher Kunz.

All the hair, um, wigs, were by Jon Reyman for Aveda and had a strong asymmetric geometric look with a hair fringe going up over one eyebrow. More from this great show, click:

I have a feeling for tweeds this Fall. And a tweed with ruffles is even hotter. This great look, shown with embellished glasses and large pearls, is by Greedilous, designed by Youn-hee-Park, (0ne of three Korean brands presented) –  all photographed backstage at the Concept Korea New York Fashion Week show for Fall 2017. The wet waves were by Jon Reyman, makeup by Janell Geason, both for Aveda. The full page on the left is from my July 2017 column in Peluquerias Magazine.

Dreamy '20s-Inspired Geisha Bride – 2011

I have always loved the feeling of this dreamy ’20s-inspired Geisha Bride from the Elisa Palomino New York Fashion Week Show in 2011. Yes, the hair by Jon Reyman for Aveda is somewhat big, and exaggerated, as is the large squashy flower with feathers, but the fashions, the model, the photograph, the bride are all fabulous divine wonderful, don’t you think?
