NYFW: PC Backstage + Front for the The Blonds s/s 2013 Runway Show with Amanda Lepore, Paris Hilton and Adam Lambert

Makeup by MAC, Hair by MorrocanOil, Nails by CND

There really is NO fashion show like The Blonds. It’s the show I look forward to the most every season — the energy, the outfits, the trannys… it’s so much fun! And this season the queen of this scene, Amanda Lepore was there!!!

There are 3 parts to the show — the backstage, the audience, and the runway show. Yes, all shows have all three but what sets this show apart is each of these elements could be an event in and of themselves.

The theme fore this years collection: “Psycho Beach Party”. Can you hear the JAWS theme song in your head? (You will soon.)


So, starting with backstage, Phillipe (The Blonds ultra sexy designer and creator) is prancing around getting beautified for he/her big moment — she’s also a model or rather the star of the show.

CND’s Kristina Estabrooks created the nails which consisted of an elaborate array of detailed designs including Shark Bites, skinny dip blue, and red caviar over CND Colour in Blackjack!

Seriously though, how ridic are the 3-D black shark nails???

MAC Cosmetics did the makeup focusing on the on the eyes . Working an exaggerated black liner below the lower lashes coupled with mega fake lashes on top for some extra drama. The rest of the face was kept neutral and flawless with a nude pout.

Full, volume blonde Barbie hair was done by MOROCCANOIL (who was the exclusive hair care sponsor for all the fashion shows hosted at MADE (aka Milk Studios). The key Stylist for the team was Antonio Corral Calero, spritzing and volumizing each section to Barbie-perfection.

In and of itself the audience is a show (and scene). If ever a show to dress and show your glitz and glimmer side, this is it! The people watching is amazing.

Gracing the front row we had Amanda Lepore, Paris Hilton, Adam Lambert, Michael Musto, and Rick Genest.


While are barbie’s walked down the runway bedazzled in crystals, colors and and endless sparkles — mid way through, the show stopped, the lights went off… and then we hear; the JAWS soundtrack. Then out comes Phillipe strutting her stuff and showing us who’s in charge. (I think she looks younger every season!) I’d say she stole the show, so fortunately it is her show…

From the runway…

Can’t forget the gentleman… (Yup, Sebastian was in the show again. Sigh)
