To kick off Fashion’s Night out, which kicks off New York Fashion Week (jeez, the fashion set will do anything to throw a party), a gargantuan fashion show was held at Lincoln Center this past Tuesday night. 1,500 guests including major designers from Donna Karen to Diane Von Furstenberg and celebs such as Gossip Girl’s
Leighton Meester and tennis great Roger Federer, who was a good boy choosing a night of fashion with his wife over a night of tennis at the Open, showed up to see the largest public fashion show in New York City history. Gisele, Naomi, Karolina and Chanel were some of the big name supermodels who walked the runway. To prep all of the models, famed hairstylist and Redken’s Creative Consultant Guido created 171 hair looks ranging from “Fifties Flair” (structured updos) to “Jazz Age Cool” (classy pastel painted finger waves) to “Pure Of Heart Side Braid” (romantic braids).
Meanwhile, the Dashing Diva nail team, led by celeb manicurist Pattie Yankee, was busy lacquering hundreds of nails to compliment each look. Some of the nail colors used were the popular shade Fashion Week, a sheer pink, and Penthouse Views, a gun metal metallic. Check out these backstage pics highlighting the hair, makeup and nails. As you can see (right), it takes an army to get even the most beautiful glamazon Gisele ready to strut her stuff. CBS will broadcast the fashion show on Sept. 14th. Stay tuned for lots more Fashion Week coverage!
