Backstage at Rachel Roy with Bobbi BrownThe backstage at Rachel Roy was….mania, to say the least. The space was small and there were many, many people in a small space, all trying to do their job. Needless to say, I got in and got out as quickly as possible.

To mach Rachel Roy’s inspiration of a modern noman, Bobbi Brown developed glamour for the jetsetter, complementing the rustic colors of the clothing with earthy shades and contoured cheeks. The skin was matte, a recurring theme this season, with a contoured and bronzed cheek. For the eyes, Bobbi selected Olive Sparkle eyeshadow, with Copper Cocoa Shimmerwash eyeshadow. To complete the eyes, Extreme Lash Glamour Lengthening mascara was used.

For the lips, the girls wore Twig Rich Lip Color.

Arriving backstage to see the one & only Ted Gibson with an army of beauty school students from Beauty Changes lives. Ted was supposed to select one lucky student to spend the morning backstage with him, however his generous spirit compelled him to select four. How cute is that?!

The look is a braided updo, woven with pieces of fabric from the actual collection. The inspiration was a bohemian downtown chick. The collection features a lot of embellishment and fur, so the goal was to keep the hair done, but but too contrived.

To achieve the look, Ted used a wax by L’Oreal Professional called Architecture. It helped to achieve the high shine and moldability necessary for the braids.
