Stella McCartney

In April of this year, Bobbi Brown Cosmetics was asked to do the make up for the Stella McCartney fashion show at Saks Fifth Avenue in Boston on Tuesday, May 5. I know – I should have posted this sooner. It seems I have a tendency to go on a posting rampage and then ignore my lil blog for a bit.

It was such a pleasure to not only participate in this event, but to work with the lovely models. I wasn’t sure what to expect for my first professional fashion show, but these ladies (and gent) were all so friendly and an easy laugh. I loved learning about their careers and work history. Someone on our team made a joke about how they must never eat, but they were quick with a rebuttal saying models have some of the healthiest appetites around.

Trinity Kizer was the lead make up artist and designed the look: fresh skin, bright and clean eyes: a look Stella loves and is known for. The buzz of the day didn’t wane for hours after it was over. The private event was a great success and although I never saw Ms. McCartney in the flesh (she was there, I just didn’t actually SEE her), I am honored to have been a part of this event and day.

I didn't do her makeup. Trinity did. But I cannot get enough of this look!

They played musical chairs. I didn't watch, but I heard the fun they were having. So great!

I also shot a fun video of the final walk out. Unfortunately I haven’t figured out a way to imbed it here, so please click here instead. Thanks!
