During Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week I scheduled several shows, previews and backstages. While at Lincoln Center as I was checking my iPhone, I received an email that I was confirmed for backstage access at Betsey Johnson. Access to this highly coveted show does not come easily so I jumped at the chance to cover this show. Members of the press were allowed a limited amount of time to take photos and conduct interviews (literally 10 minutes). Of course I was elated so I grabbed my camera to capture the beauty of it all and headed to the back of Lincoln Center.

Peter Gray for Redken worked his magic by styling and cutting black bob wigs into sleek asymmetrical styles. He then carefully applied a lace template to the hair and they spray painted it gold leaving a delicate imprint on the hair. Simply Gorgeous!

The makeup was dramatic as expected. Shades of blue eyeshadow were swept across the lids and extended into the temples and gold eyeshadow highlighted the inner corners eyes. The look was completed with bold lashes and red lips.

The highlight of the day was seeing the diva, Betsey Johnson herself!
