Chantelle from MAC
Emily @ Ford - Perfect for this show.
I really need to put my chin up or get a nose job..
Make-up inspiration is awkward innocence, a Tammy Faye Baker lower lash line on extremely young girls , a rush of blush and and a gorgeous crimson crushed lip .... Star products zoom lash mascara and strut your stuff lip lolly both MAC. Val's absolute make up must have ' Egyptian Magic' - get it at Liberty's London or NYC drugstore. Cheap as chips in New York. Use on eyelids for film noir sexiness, great cheekbone high lighter, fab on legs for ultra shine, chapped lips, a great do all product. Fat ankles from too high shoes. Basking in sun outside show now the hunt is on for a cab and perhaps lunch if we can fit it in before next show fitting for Monique L'Huillier.
7.30 am and Laura is setting us up for Cynthia Rowley show. On at 11am.
Where are the models? Still in hair... Just told Nadine my show coordinator 'We don't do waiting!'
Friday night is Fashion Night Out, went to Barney's after Port show just had to buy shoes, got three pairs, Marni, Lanvin-kind of converse for loads more than normal Converse - What was I thinking? Anyway, amazing work on display by Andrew Yang, especially loved his tribute to Lee. Five dolls, five shows and three of the dolls were from shows I had worked on, especially loved Erin O'Connor doll from Circus show.
All day show fittings. Bed at 10.45 pm.
At 2.45 am.... NY NY oh how I love you. Woke up to the sound of fire alarm and pungent smell of smoke. Loud speaker says there's a fire on the 11th floor, I was sleeping on the 11th floor....what did I save from the fire?? Only myself - what a mistake. All other occupants at were sporting Chanel handbags and crackberrys... hmmmmm, will I stay at 'oh no grunge' hotel next season????
