Backstage at New York Fashion Week- Badgley Mischka by Redken, MAC, and Lippman Collection

I am continuously blown away by the stunning looks I have seen backstage this fashion week. This oh so dreary and wet-snow filled day began with a trip into an Avatar inspired runway beauty look at Badgley Mischka.

Hair by Peter Gray for Redken and Cutler Salon
I think I have a new favorite hairstyle as seen backstage. Wholly inspired by Avatar, Peter Gray and the Redken team executed two perfect hair looks, Princess and Warrior Princess.

The first look was designed for Badgley Mischka’s signature line of Red Carpet wear, and featured an edgy but polished updo. Looking at the roped jewelry for the signature collection, Gray modeled the updo after the ropes and vines found on Pandora. Hair was divided into a top and bottom section. The top was formed into a wide, textured mohawk, while the bottom portion was pulled back tight. Both sections were then interlocked and twisted, to form a roped figure eight.

The second look was designed for Badgley Mischka’s new diffusion line, which has a decidedly different vibe that is a bit younger, and edgier. As with the first look, hair was divided, and the top was formed into a loose mohawk. The main difference is that the bottom portion stayed down, falling long and sleek.

Makeup by Charlotte Tilbury for MAC Cosmetics

Further expanding on the Avatar and warrior princess theme, Tilbury designed a look that draws heavily on contouring and highlighting. The face was heavily highlighted and contoured, but in a natural looking way. 

Nails by Deborah Lippmann for Lippmann Collection

To complete the look, the Lippmann Collection team went with Marquee Moon, a silver metallic with silver sequins. The overall effect was modern, deconstructed, unstructured, and out of this world.

From hair, to makeup, to nails, the Avatar inspired look at Badgley Mischka scored an out of this world effect that was nothing short of amazing.
