While most of the hype and excitement is on the runways during Fashion Week, a lot of the energy and fun goes on backstage! Everything from makeup to clothing, and shoes to hair accessories fill the back room where models get decked out and pampered by the finest beauty experts in the business in order to look their best on the catwalk. One of my favorite backstage beauty trends was from Anna Sui; the black, exaggerated cat-eye and faux Mohawk updo completed this edgy look. Zac Posen was also another favorite of mine beauty wise—I loved the oxblood red lips, thick eyeliner, and sleek chignon which made for a very French and sophisticated look. I love looking at backstage photos, it’s really where most of the magic happens!
