Catwalk Cut: The Best of Spring 2013 Fashion Week Friday 08 February, 2013

Best-of-Spring-2013-Fashion-Week

A look back at my best stolen moments from Spring 2013 Fashion Week as I head into Fall 2013 New York Fashion Week.

Tomorrow, I start the madness of Fall 2013 Fashion Week. And time has flown; oh, how it’s flown. Between launching a new consumer magazine (Nail It!, out this month!) and forecasting trends, it’s been a whirlwind. And now I’m going back into the eye of the storm.

I’ll be missing from the blog for the next week, but to tide you over, take a look at some of my favorite photos I snapped backstage last season.

Spring 2013 Marissa Webb Catwalk Cut: The Best of Spring 2013 Fashion Week

The Marissa Webb presentation featured clothes I would wear—especially this neon lime shirt and shorts (yes; they’re shorts) combo with a blazer. I’m a blazer person.

spring 2013 zero maria cornejo hair Catwalk Cut: The Best of Spring 2013 Fashion Week

The makeup look at Zero + Maria Cornejo was by Shiseido’s Dick Page. When interviewing him, he told me that he wanted to “keep it simple. It’s not to be pissy.” Then, he apologized for using the word “pissy.” I love him; he always comments positively on my makeup when he sees me, despite the fact that I’m always covered in three sheets of sweat backstage.

Spring 2013 Kaelen Nails Catwalk Cut: The Best of Spring 2013 Fashion Week

Smiling models: We need more of them! This gorgeous redhead took a moment to crack one for the camera at Kaelen.

Spring 2013 Bibhu Mohapatra Hair Catwalk Cut: The Best of Spring 2013 Fashion Week

The intricacy of this L’Oréal Professionnel-sculpted braided bun at Bibhu Mohapatra is beyond.

Spring 2013 Rebecca Minkhoff Beauty Catwalk Cut: The Best of Spring 2013 Fashion Week

A quick flash of sea foam green on the eyes at Rebecca Minkhoff is so very flattering. (Makeup by Stila.)

Spring 2013 Naeem Kahn Beauty Catwalk Cut: The Best of Spring 2013 Fashion Week

I loved that this model at Naeem Khan had a retro cassette iPhone cover that matched her Dashing Diva manicure!

Spring 2013 Nanette Lepore Beauty Catwalk Cut: The Best of Spring 2013 Fashion Week

So much beauty! The girls at Nanette Lepore all boasted different bright pops of color on their eyelids, courtesy of MAC Cosmetics.

Spring 2013 Behnaz Sarafpour Nails Catwalk Cut: The Best of Spring 2013 Fashion Week

The nail look by CND at Behnaz Sarafpour was so simple, yet so amazingly chic. I love nail art designs that utilize “negative space” – meaning, they show the naked nail.

Spring 2013 Rachel Antonoff Nails Catwalk Cut: The Best of Spring 2013 Fashion Week

Another nail look by CND, this time at Rachel Antonoff. Each name was drawn on using a Sharpie marker. And, it should be noted that each of the names was one of Rachel’s loved ones!

Spring 2013 Snow Backstage Catwalk Cut: The Best of Spring 2013 Fashion Week

This is Snow. To date, she’s booked three photo shoots with me. She’s the consummate professional; always delivers. Plus, she has amazing nails. I bumped into her backstage at various shows. Here, she’s getting gussied up at Farah Angsara.

Spring 2013 The Blonds Hair Catwalk Cut: The Best of Spring 2013 Fashion Week

I don’t even know how to explain The Blonds shows. To be sure, this design duo is over-the-top in all they do, so it stands to reason the beauty is completely outré as well. Here, Moroccanoil’s Antonio Corral Calero is fitting a model into her futuristic Barbie wig. P.S.: He amassed height under the wig by stuffing bubble wrap in there. No lie!

Spring 2013 Lela Rose Beauty Catwalk Cut: The Best of Spring 2013 Fashion Week

A pop of gold on eyes is absolutely gorgeous at Lela Rose. ‘Nuff said.

Spring 2013 Creatures of the Wind Catwalk Cut: The Best of Spring 2013 Fashion Week

Pinks and reds on eyes are always a favorite on the runways, but they rarely transfer over to real life. ‘Tis a shame, really, but I get it. Red eyes can denote being tired or sick—but there’s always a right way to wear the look, and I think it was achieve by NARS Cosmetics at Creatures of the Wind.

Spring 2013 Alice Olivia Catwalk Cut: The Best of Spring 2013 Fashion Week

The clothes at Alice & Oliva are always spot-on for women with a girlish side, and the makeup by Stila perfectly complemented this feminine ideal. Personal fave: The black winged eyeliner that’s stacked with a line of periwinkle. Love!

Spring 2013 Rachel Zoe Beauty Catwalk Cut: The Best of Spring 2013 Fashion Week

Not too surprising that Rachel Zoe selected a very sublime makeup design for her debut runway show. (She normally just does presentations, so this was a big deal!)

Chris Benz Spring 2013 Beauty 6 Catwalk Cut: The Best of Spring 2013 Fashion Week

Another pink-eye look, this time at Chris Benz (makeup by Lancome). Come on, Ladies! Let’s make pink eye makeup happen.

Joy Cioci Spring 2013 Backstage Beauty 4 Catwalk Cut: The Best of Spring 2013 Fashion Week

Hairstylist Tommy Buckett crafted this super-sculptural hair look at Joy Cioci. Probably one of my favorites of the season due to its craftmanship, originality and the fact that it is still quite wearable.

Prabal Gurung Spring 2013 Beauty 1 Catwalk Cut: The Best of Spring 2013 Fashion Week

The beauty press went gaga over this blood-drop manicure at Prabal Gurung by Tracylee Percival using Sally Hansen. Another “negative space” design.

Peter Som Spring 2013 Beauty 5 Catwalk Cut: The Best of Spring 2013 Fashion Week

The words “faded” and maybe even “f*cked up” were used in conjunction with this Peter Som beauty look, but I have to say: It’s pure genius. So fun!

Richard Chai Love Spring 2013 7 Catwalk Cut: The Best of Spring 2013 Fashion Week

Let’s end it with a smile: Here’s supermodel Raquel Zimmerman having a laugh backstage at Richard Chai Love.

Now, on to the next season!
