Backstage Beauty Blog: LFW SS16 Day Four

A day of star studded line ups

MOST POPULAR

 

Day four is more like a slumber party. Models get their toenails painted while sitting on the floor and lounge around on sofas wearing robes and slippers. I like it! We're all in need of some sleep, but we soldier on in the name of fashion, beauty and the chance to spot someone famous...

The food:

My call time this morning was 7:30am, so I needed as much fuel as possible. Antonio Berardi served mini pain au chocolats, apricot turnovers and pear danish's, Burberry supplied a mixed salad and ham sandwiches, Peter Pilotto had energy balls on hand (good thinking!) and Giles restocked Urban Fruits, Skittles, Haribo and Propercorn every 15 minutes. 

The shows:

HIGHLIGHT: The models, make-up artists and hairstylists had to be there for 6am, yet everyone looked like they'd just been on holiday (even the ones catching some rest on the floor). The magical powers of Val Garland and Luke Hersheson. 

Roksanda Ilincic

HIGHLIGHT: The 30s round-shaped blue eye created by Lucia Pica, complimented perfectly by crimped "floating" hair styled by Mark Hampton by plaiting the front strands before clamping down with a straightener. Keep in mind for next summer's festivals.

Erdem

HIGHLIGHT: How truly haunted the girls looked. I felt like I was on set of The Grudge. 'Prairie madness' was the brief given by Erdem Moralioglu. Look it up, it's errie. 

Christopher Kane

HIGHLIGHT: Watching Guido Palau get creative with cable ties. Who knew they'd be next season's hair accessory?

Burberry

HIGHLIGHT: The bespoke burgundy lip created by Wendy Rowe. Every girl had a slightly different shade depending on their skin tone. Our Beauty Director, Sophie Beresiner has done a quick step-by-step tutorial on our instagram which I'll be following closely, come the weekend.

Giles

HIGHLIGHT: When Stella Maxwell and Bella Hadid stole my phone for a selfie. I felt like I was part of the "ella" team... maybe I should change my name to Natella? I also bumped into Georgia May Jagger, Poppy Delevingne, Erin O'Connor, Eva Herzigova, Irina Shayk, Andreja Pejic, Karen Elson, Dree Hemingway, Lily Donaldson, Edie Campbell, Alek Wek and Binx Walton. No biggie... 

What I wore:

Early mornings call for comfy raffia shoes, vintage jeans and a Maje sweater (it makes any outfit look like you've made an effort). 

Beauty:

I was inspired by yesterday's Alice Temperley show. That ponytail was the definition of #HairGoals. I followed the instructions of Antonio Corral Calero very carefully and used the Moroccanoil Molding Cream, £19.85 and Luminous Hairspray, £17.25 that he worked with backstage.
