NYFW Backstage with VPL by Victoria Bartlett Fall 2012

Victoria Bartlett’s new fall collection was inspired by the beautiful soft lines of a dance called Mmm by Michael Clark. The show was titled Manipulate. I got a chance to get backstage and get a sneak peek at the hair and makeup looks. It was definitely some sort of organized chaos for sure. At times there were three and four people working on the model’s hair all while someone was polishing her nails and applying lip. Since the models were getting a very clean fresh look they all received facials first. Oh, the life of a model.

HAIR: Very geometric but with fluid moment. Each model was given a side or center part to individualize each look. An Amika flatiron was used for the geometrically look. Additional product was used for a glassy finish (not glossy!).

Beauty: OCC products were used to give a very neutral look. No brushes were used, the makeup artists used their fingers to apply the blush and shadow. Liner was applied to the eyes for a slick finish.

The scene backstage was tight but organized. I managed to get a few shots just so you guys could see what really happens backstage. It’s all work baby! I can’t even describe it.. have a look for yourself.
