NYFW Day 3 Recap: From Backstage to Front Row at the Show
Posted Saturday September 7, 2013 7:42 PM GMT
Another day down — five more to go! We started our third morning at Jill Stuart where the models were smokin,’ or at least their makeup was thanks to Sephora's Helen Phillips.
The cosmetics guru told us makeup was defined by cool, fresh skin that is punctuated with “imperfection.” “We’re sort of departing from the very polished look this season … making it look a little bit raw.”
We know one thing for sure — after seeing the end result, we’ll be investing in a Bobbi Brown foundation stick and Givenchy Magic Kajal Eye Pencil to get this sexy look.
Where fashion is concerned, Stuart combined two of our favorite trends within her Spring 2014 collection: Rocker chic and beachy cool. The end result? Feminine fits with a flattering edge. We caught up with the designer backstage who said her inspiration was "Rockstar's Girlfriends on holiday."
Models showed some skin with cropped tops and sheer linings. And for all you edgier fashionistas; Stuart incorporated leather into many of the looks and informed us backstage that the material “is not going anywhere!” So start investing, ladies!
Meanwhile, at Malan Breton on the look was reminiscent of a vintage pinup girl all with the help of an at-home styling tool appropriately named the miracurl. “It’s a new device that takes the guess work out of perfect curls” said Bee Salas from the Babyliss Pro Artistic Team.
Backstage at Herve Leger the girls shimmied into the iconic form-fitting bandage dresses that the brand is so well known for. However, designer Lubov Azria had a different twist in store. Check out the video above to see the sexy sportswear offerings — all pieces Azria says every woman could wear — and also to see which celebs stopped by to support the Herve Leger team.
Charlotte Ronson turned out some of the most incredible feminine silhouettes we’ve seen yet. Her Spring 2014 collection is extremely print heavy — we’re talking preppy plaids, dainty florals, and flirty cherry patterns. Eyelet details and sheer paneling was seen throughout and of the most prevalent pieces of the offering — one we’ve been seeing frequently here at MBFW — was the crop top!
