NYFW: Lela Rose S/S 2010 beauty

PhotobucketTo continue the coverage of NYFW, I am breaking some posts up into pieces so that you don’t get restless scrolling. Whenever I get home and troll through photographs and footage and find that I have an abundance of material, I find it best to separate the fashion and beauty and offer more for you to read in separate posts. Either way, you got no choice! 🙂

As I already said in the fashion post, the collection was great. It was very relaxed and carefree but still prim and taken care of in every aspect. Does that make sense? Every look, from head to toe was flawless, in that it looked effortless. You know – those girls that practically skip down the street looking perfect and saying they just got out of bed? Or when you have a spiffy day and feel refreshed but did next to nothing to achieve it – just wore the tried and true, good to you. This collection was like that.

PhotobucketThe overall look was a soft but not overdone bronzed, carefree image. As Sarah from Stila describes it best, it’s like the girl who fell asleep under the sun for a bit in the summer, but she had her SPF on – so she just has a glow. Some of the products used were the Pomegranate Crush Stain, the Fandango Duo Eyeshadow, and the Cobalt Smudge Pot (all personal faves!) .The hair was slightly piecy ponytails, mastered by the best, depicting the same story that the makeup began to write. The nails? Well of course they followed suit!

PhotobucketDeborah Lippmann of her namesake brand described the mani pedis (Fashion was the shade used at the show – order here) as reverting back to matching the mani to the pedi. She reiterated that women should rely less on the go to French Mani and venture out into the broader world of polish (to which everyone agreed). The polish used in the show was just the perfect shade (described as a “Not-so-typical taupe” cream color on the website) to dig your feet into the sand and have your toes disappear into sandy oblivion.

Check out the rest of the images a la Yaya:

NYFW: Lela Rose S/S 2010 fashion

PhotobucketAnother day of the life in the tents! This show transpired on Sunday – so bear with me as I catch up. Thankfully, I did not go to any shows on Monday, so I should be reporting faster. That’s good right?

I am also going to be entering the world of YouTube y’all! I realized I had no choice as I interviewed numerous makeup artists, hair stylists, shows, and designers for your waiting eyes. These posts might come after all my posts for NYFW are concluded by tomorrow/Friday, because as we all know (or may not know) the videos take a while to upload and edit (mostly to upload though), and I don’t want the whole post to wait and suffer because of the video.

Regardless of the wait – you’ll definitely love the material. This being the first Fashion Week I participated in (I usually watch at home), I’ve met so many great people and have gathered more than enough scoop to share with y’all!

The Lela Rose show was a great one. There was a large array of (mostly) wedge shoes and apparel that was the real definition of Spring. The beauty team was a godsend with Stila for the face, Ted Gibson for hair, and Deborah Lippmann for nails. Additionally, Darphin skin care (from across the pond!) was present to keep the gals skin in line and prettified. These girls live the life during fashion week, don’t they?!

preparation

The clothes for the show were just as carefree and soft as the rest of the look. The collection contained many bright colors (but not neon) in lime-yellow, fuschia, greens, and blues. There were some pieces that really struck me & my favorites list because of how they fluttered during movement.

I loved nearly every pair of shoes

Lela’s dog Stitch, was the real start of the entire show, as he walked the backstage area, taking the rights over his kingdom. He sniffed and greeted every artist, model, worker, etc. (and he probably liked the catering team the most). I actually wholeheartedly expected him to walk the runway.

Photobucket
he was too cute and fast for my paparazzi ways!
