Backstage – Jason Wu Fall 2012

Posted on
 This is where I was on Friday.  Come take a look….

 Jason Wu turned women into Chinese warriors for Fall 2012.

All hair styles were created by Kerastase senior stylist Odile Gilbert.  The look was split between long sleek ponytails secured with black latex or a short masculine look.

It feels incredibly lucky to not only capture the work but to see a collection up close before the rest of the world.    I am shooting backstage pictures for Kerastase during NYFW so more shots to come!

    The hair compliments the detailed embellishments of those gorgeous pieces. You don’t need to do much but let natural beauty shine through with an incredible dress on.

    Thx everyone for the comments. Sorry I’ve not been able to keep up with what I wore. For the Jason Wu shoot I was in the Johnny Cash black Tshirt, black skinnies, snake skin DIY cut off boots and a black fedora. Vintage black fur jacket on top.

    i like hairstyles i want to say that i can serme whole life to the hairstyles i can easily do hairstyles this i like it.hairstyles are a primitive one and often linked with the popular and demanding styles in 60s and 70s both in men and women. A parallel hairstyles approach is still followed for girls and women in modern hairstyles amazing hairstyle with a little untidy that confers a rock & roll look to your hair. This curly bob hairstyles hairstyles. style has gone through slight changes over the time. Unlikely to older styles.
