The fashion at Lela Rose was inspired by Peru and backstage the hair, makeup and nail interpretations were perfectly executed to enhance the mood of the clothes.  Hair by Ted Gibson for was a romantic, sideswept pony with alot of volume and texture.  In a Fashion Week full of ponytails, this look was actually the prettiest I’ve seen. Ted applied Fix-It Gel and Containment to the hair, then blow-dried and scrunched it before bringing to the side and placing a braid at the nape of the neck.

The soft, colorwashed makeup look was created by Sarah Lucero for Stila Cosmetics at and emphasized the eye, lip and of course, perfect skin.  Prime Pot Shade 1 and 2, as well as Poppy Shadow were applied to the lid with a finger.  Lips took on a warm, Burnt Sienna hue using Long Wear Lipcolor in Outrageous, a matte deep orange.  Skin was given a satin, matte finish by starting with One Step Corrector to eliminate any redness.  Skin was prepped with Arcona products.

It’s always a treat to see Deborah Lippmann backstage doing nails.  For this show, PYT, a light, sheer peach color was applied to nails.

The Lela Rose show is always one of my favorites to cover backstage and this year was no exception.  Overall, a gorgeous look and one that can be replicated at home for Spring.
