Backstage Prabal Gurung Fw12

Since I’ve been back, the most asked question from readers and real life alike has been something about my most surreal, incredible, mind-blowing experience over my entire time in New York.

Since I’ve been back, the most asked question from readers and real life alike has been something about my most surreal, incredible, mind-blowing experience over my entire time in New York. While sunset at Top of the Rock came reasonably close, I don’t think there was anything that even came close to the grandeur, excitement and all facets of beauty that was concentrated backstage at Prabal Gurung‘s Fall/Winter 2012 show. The only way I can really relay those couple of hours to you, aside from these photos and video (which I do hope you enjoy), is like this: seeing the 42 looks, 42 models, double la crΓ¨me de la crΓ¨me of industry professionals, and Prabal explaining his inspiration and background firsthand is a storm to the senses to start. Then walking right up close to every piece and wondering what sparked the idea to begin with was a whole other surreality altogether. In the middle of a week where people start to forget what they’re here to see, Prabal’s show managed to direct all the energy of the celebrity, elite and frenzy back to his collection. altaltaltaltaltaltaltaltaltaltaltaltalt How stunning a job did Charlotte Tilbury and her MAC team do on the makeup? I need to try this… A huge thank you to Bon Duke for having me with him on the day – whose work, by the way, you need to be addicted to as of now. Seeing this guy in action is pretty phenomenal in itself – click click! *love* xx
