Pink Fur, Faces, Nails – 2016

Photos: Paul Morejón

Think pink fur, so glamorous, as seen here at the Area New York Fashion Week Show for Fall 2016. Pink fur, all pinks, will be big this fall and winter. Worn here with a  metallic pink lamé dress, designed by Beckett Fogg and Plotrek Panszczyk. The nails, by Tracylee had Swarovski crystals in strategic places here and there, not on every nail. The color was “Make Me Blush” by Red Carpet. Faces were by Georgina Graham for MAC Cosmetics, inspired by “cool girls who have a minimal street feeling,” The lip was a delicious matte chocolate, a new Mac Eye Gloss was introduced.

Love Love Love Betsey's Brides – 2009

… Photos: © Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week

Betsey Johnson’s brides from her Summer 2009 Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week show were fabulous. And memorable.  The terrific theatrics included handcuffed brides and pirates, inspired by children’s fairytales. ’80s modern bobbed synthetic wigs by Italo Gregorio for Redken Fifth Avenue wowed in pink, white, turquoise, purple, black, topped by white hats, with veils. The girly gowns were glorious. Fulvia’s doll faces using Make Up Forever had pink heart lips, a hot pink blush, white lids, fake painted lashes on the bottom lid.  Love love love everything, Betsey Johnson.  Then. And now.  More photos from this show, published in my April 2009 Peluquerias column coming soon to my Facebook Biz Buzz.   Stay tuned …
