We were excited to glamify America’s Next Top Model winner Lisa D’Amato for Fashion’s Night Out before her special appearance at Express. Stylist Harmonie Redman and makeup artist Francesca Roman created this look to represent a soft elegance while still showing off Lisa’s fun personality! After salon hours, we headed to the fashion parade on the rambunctious and fashion forward streets of SoHo – stopping in to enjoy music (the Misshapes DJ set at Topshop!), cocktails, and shopping exclusives at stores like Dior, Guess, All Saints, and Michael Kors!
Backstage at NYFW: Butterfly’s Taylor Brock created Bardot-inspired waves with twisted, side-swept bangs for Erin Fetherston. Following the collection’s “femininity with an edge” motif, legendary stylist Odile Gilbert thought to use open zippers for headbands! A simple and creative way to enhance your hair do’ or add interest to your overall look. Kérastase styling products were a must have to create gorgeous shine with just enough control while nourishing, strengthening ingredients worked to save all of the the heat styling and teasing a model’s hair endures during those 7 days!
John Varvatos Launch Party for “The Weapon”
We were front line on the red carpert for John Varvatos’ NYFW party, celebrating the release of his sleek sneaker line for Converse. It was a star-studded affair with glamorous celebs like Daisy Fuentes, Vampire Diaries’ Daniel Gillies, model Lindsay Ellingson, and even Tara Lipinski in attendance. Everyone was dressed for the occasion, but somehow incorporated a rock edge in their ensemble – something Varvatos is known and loved for! Inside of the Varvatos store on Bowery – which happens to be the location of the former CBGBs – gritty rockers Black Rebel Motorcycle Club emerged on the smoke filled stage to bring rock n roll back for a night with an incredibly explosive performance!
Elle Magazine’s Fashion Week Party: Jill’s Styling Report
The Backstage Secret
To achieve the appearance of the slightest movement in the hair, simple irons were used to create waves. The trick being to keep the ends straight.
Butterfly stylist Jill Guzzo says that the key for the model look was to keep the hair looking natural and go very minimalistic on the styling.
To pull the effortless look together Nectar Thermique by Kérastase for softness, shine, and thermal protection was used and finished with Double Force Hairspray for texture and hold. So casual-chic!
On the Runway at Nanette Lepore
Butterfly client coordinator Amanda got an invite for a fashion trip to remember, being one of the lucky few to witness Nanette Lepore’s Spring 2013 Collection first hand! Beyond the fashion, one of the coolest things about her runway show was electronic dance band Brazilian Girls playing their downtempo, fun beats live on the catwalk as the models walked. Amanda was right on the money – ironically wearing a top that was the right shade of green that day – matching the similar color tone trending in Lepore’s exotic/Asian influenced collection. Alongside the gorgeous greens were pinks, silks, and Lepore’s always pretty prints mixed with lovely, well-tailored black and white pieces to round out the line.
