Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week: Backstage at the Rosa Cha Show

Think the art of makeup is lavishly delicious? Try being backstage at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week at Bryant Park in New York.... it was like being at Baskin Robbins and being able to try all 31 flavors! There was so much to look at, so many people to chat with and so many gorgeous garments and products that caught my eye. As a Makeup Artist and Hair Stylist myself, this was my favorite part of attending Fashion Week. I was lucky enough to see so many fantastic shows such as Arise, Jill Stuart, Christian Siriano, Argentine, Venexiana and Tommy Hilfiger to name a few... but the very first show I went to was Rosa Cha, which perfectly melded my two worlds together; a tropical rush of swimwear with the chic city ambience and style. I didn't waste anytime after the show, and made a beeline for backstage... there I met the talented and oh so sweet, Fred Vellon, National Makeup Artist for M.A.C Cosmetics who gave me the low down on the inspiration for the look, the products and the love of makeup! I also met one of the
 'it' girls of the supermodel world, Chanel Iman whose sugary personality made her as charming as she is gorgeous! Enjoy the eye candy below!!

Behind the Scenes of a New Reality Show coming soon to Newport Beach...

Another fantastic Shoot working with Team Voorhees! This picture was taken at Michael Voorhees' amazing studio on 16th street in Newport Beach, CA. We shot in the studio and later, we took Dominque, the camera crew and myself into the RV and went down to Newport Beach on location! Great day! 

Beautiful Red Head, Dominique from Brand and from the Janice Dickenson Show.

I love her hair!! 

The gorgeous, talented Celesta from Elite! And sexy Andrea in the back waiting in the makeup chair. 

I love behind the scenes! Look at all these cameras! Good thing I'm not shy :-) 

 Doesn't Celesta look like Heidi Klum in this picture! This was just a snapshot I took, before she went to shoot! She's fantastic!
