MBFWA: Backstage at Bowie.

Oh Bowie. You're so cute, stylish and personable. And you design achingly beautiful clothes to boot. I resumed my "photographer help" role for Through Beauty Eyes last night backstage at Bowie, and boy was I glad to be of assistance.

Kevin Murphy created feminine, wavy hairstyles to complement the elegant and intricate designs of Bowie's AURA collection. Napoleon Perdis continues the aura theme on the make-up front, incorporating the four natural elements - wind, fire, earth, and ice. Key products used were the Light Patrol Luminizer Palette to add an ethereal shimmer to the skin, China Doll Gel Eyeliner in Silver and Loose Eye Dust in Ice Storm to create a frosty lid, and the DeVine Goddess Lipstick in Nymphe mixed with Lip Lacquer in Clearly Glam for a rosy yet icy lip.

The collection itself was otherworldly, with sublime intricate details and a beautiful mix of soft and structured forms. I felt so lucky to be able to see (but didn't dare touch!) the creations up close.

Enjoy the visual feast.
