LFW Behind The Scenes: Vivienne Westwood Red Label

At London Fashion Week this year I had the amazing task of attending the fashion shows backstage to get pics of the models and speak to the make up artists/hair stylists etc. I have SO many photos so have decided to give this show a little post of it's own because the hair and make up was AMAZE to the BALLS. 

A bit of backstage background: Press with backstage access are given a call time of 1-1.5 hours before the show time to get there with time to see the looks created and listen to the head make up artist and hair stylist discuss the inspiration for the look and key products/techniques used. 

For this show, we were told the theme for both hair and make up was 'Warhol meets royalty'. Hair had either a Queen style (created with wigs) or a Debbie Harry tousled look. Make up was a literal translation of Warhol, with eyes lips and faces painted in alternating bright paint! 




Charlotte Free looking AT MY LENS. Oh my god.


Nail Rock created custom nail wraps for the show to complement the retro aesthetic of the clothing, hair and make up.


Alice Dellal looked very Zen-like with her eyes closed and lolly in mouth! 

The vibe was pretty hectic, as to be expected, but it was quite a spacious location so it wasn't as chaotic as a few other shows I'd seen... 

And here's how the show looked after all the backstage madness!




What do you think of the hair/make up for this show? Are you interested in seeing more backstage pics for other shows I went to?
