New York Fashion Week is a big old corporate production. It's slick and shiny and expertly packaged. London Fashion Week is a different kettle of fish. There's more indie goodness, it's a bit more interesting and individual. All four fashion weeks are great to get an idea of what sort of cosmetics we'll probably be wearing in the next 9 months.
But I like LFW for the coolest beauty inspiration... apparently this fall we'll be back to burgundy lipstick (thank goodness I still have my Revlon in Black Cherry) and in poufy hair with headbands.
My favorite sites to follow the fun:
Stylist Magazine's backstage beauty blog (images above from this fab blog)
TopShop Inside Out
The amazing Fashion Week microsite on Asos.com
Grazia, of course
And here is a quick and sexy roundup of backstage beauty at NYFW. Thinking the 'Apres-Sex' look at Michael Kors is my favorite. Flushed and mussed and glowy. All good.
