Behind the scenes at Porter Grey

Backstage at Porter Grey!!!

For those of you unfamiliar with this line, Porter Grey is an American contemporary sportswear line, founded and run by sisters Kristen and Alexandra O’Neill.

I love this photo…I think that being backstage is so glamorous! The models, the clothes, the designers, celebs etc. But while that is all true…some parts are simply not so fun. It’s cold. It’s boring as you wait for the next look to get ready. The reporters and photographers are always bumping into each other or getting into each others shot. It’s very small with a hundred people all crowding in. And everyone thinks THEIR job is the most important one of all…PR, security, papps, models etc…  ANYWAYS….I love the reality of this picture….two cold and uncomfortable, bored models amongst all the chaos.

The hair team was led by Rebecca Naftzger for Cutler. “She blow-dried the models’ hair with a round brush and curled it with a one-and-a-half-inch curling iron while leaving out the ends. It created this big subtle wave, which complemented the clothes perfectly.”

Jose Rivera,the makeup artist leading the Sephora PRO Beauty team emphasized clean skin; wind-blown cheeks to indicate an outdoorsy, ready-to-face-the-elements strength; a rich and saturated black lash line and an understated and deconstructed lip look with scattered golden shimmer.
