NYFW: Sheer Brilliance at Reem Acra Spring/Summer 2015 Show

Two things were apparent at Reem Acra’s Spring 2015 show, a fondness for flesh and no shortage of shine. While the stunning collection, said to be inspired by mid century couturiers, had those of us in the crowd fantasizing about a rendezvous on the red carpet, it was the beauty look that we felt could apply to our real life.unnamed-3

Enhancing the hair’s natural texture was the look created by Didier Malige with René Furterer products. Taking a cue from Reem’s designs the locks were  draped in the front in an asymmetrical manner, while the supporting strands had modern feel to them. We love the way this gave the dressy silhouettes an edge and could easily be re-imagned to work in your weekend routine when you want to freshen up your “going out” look.

The same could be said about the makeup look, created by legendary makeup artist, Pat McGrath. Smokey eyes with a bronze overlay, toning down the intensity of the lids but playing up the glamour for a perfect balance.

This entire look is very “copyable” all the way down to the fingertips. Miss Pop used OPI’s “Bubble Bath” shade, which is a soft, milky pink. The cult favorite echoed the romance of the collection effortlessly and can be seen below on Miss Pop herself who jazzed the look up on her fingers with a dash of a rebellious black.

After seeing so many sportswear shows, to say I was ready for some award show red carpet worthy gowns is an understatement. Reem Acra brought it! Finding an unusual mix of inspiration including extracting the bold, abstract energy of Aaron Young’s famous series of motorcycle inspired works. The collection is powerful, with exceptional details that brings a modern femininity to evening wear. The tailoring is executed through laser cuts, vivid colors and uniquely juxtaposed elements. Makeup by the legendary, Pat McGrath, hair by Rutger Van der Heide.

Here’s my video from the shows finale:


Side note: You’ll never guess who was sitting near me in the front row… Paula Abdul! And because I was behind her walking out, fans kept asking if I’d take a picture with their phone and then someone asked if I wanted one — and you know what… why not?

Talk about being in the right place at the right time…
