backstage at lela rose fall 2012


i know it’s been a month since new york fashion week, but due to a bit of a technical issue (in which my external hard drive died suddenly), i hadn’t been able to access the rest of the photos i took during fashion week! fortunately for me, i just realized that i managed to back-up my fashion week photos, so i hope you don’t mind this brief interlude back into fall fashion in the form of a few photos i took backstage and on the runway at the lela rose fall 2012 show. the moment i stepped into the backstage tent, i was floored by the hair and makeup! inspired by the gibson girls of early twentieth century, the romantic updos and dark, sultry eyes, took my breath away. i mean it! perhaps it has to do with the fact that i’ve always had short hair, but these types of intricate updos always leave me swooning.

another fun fact was that the hair was being done by none other than ted gibson. i have to admit that i may have been sucked into a few late night marathons watching old episodes of tlc’s what not to wear. and ted gibson is easily one of the most lovable characters on the show. so it was fun to see him in the flesh giving the girls his “modern gibson girl” look. the eye makeup was equally lovely, all done by stila (who happens to make my favorite eyeshadow). i loved the bold, dramatic brow.

please note that all of these photos were taken by me! please only repost with proper credit. to see the rest of my nyfw coverage, click here!
