Final LFW SS14 post from me! I was lucky enough to join Moroccanoil backstage once again for the Kristian Aadnevik SS14 show. Earlier on in the day I joined them backstage for Margaret Howell SS14.
The Kristian Aadnevik show was held at the Royal Horseguards hotel near Embankment. I have never stepped foot in this hotel before, but oh my! what an amazing venue for a fashion show. If anyone is looking for somewhere grand and traditional to stay in London…this is the place. Wish I had taken more photos.
Frontcover cosmetics was used backstage. I spoke for about 5 minutes with with a representative. The brand is quite unique as the products change each season – like fashion brands. I did state that sometimes you find a product that you absolutely love and want to continue buying – what would happen in that instance. The representative said they do have a few ‘hero products‘ that are popular and they continue to provide each season.
Because of the change of product each season they focus on eyes, lips and nails. I think its a really exciting concept for those who like to experiment with different make-up and looks.
For the ‘Sahara’ Kristian Aadnevik SS14 theme – models wore bronzed eyes, subtle contouring and natural lips
Kristian Aadnevik Spring/Summer 2014 hair was created by Errol Douglas for Moroccanoil. Inspiration was The Sahara and savage beauties in the burning sun. Messy waves were created with Moroccanoil products and ceramic barrel brush. The look was finished off with a thick fringe hair piece. I think I have a hair appointment coming up with Errol Douglas, so will blog about every moment of that…excited.
Kristian Aadnevik is a London based Norwegian designer. He has celebrity clientele such as Selena Gomez, Beyonce, Nicole Scherzinger, Cheryl Cole and Rihanna. Hot stuff!
The pieces as you can see were extremely beautiful and feminine. I am always a sucker for floaty fabrics, lots of detail and embellishments with a quirky twist. There was a few cleavage pieces which isn’t my ‘thing’ at this moment in time. I think they only work of smaller chested ladies. I know when bigger breasted ladies wear low cut tops or dresses, there is only one thing I can see. Other than that, it was love!
I had been up since 5:30 in the morning from 3 hours sleep, covered shows, had my own little photoshoot at the Apartment and cocktails so was absolutely shattered by the time I arrived. The show was at 9:30 and my eyeballs couldn’t stay open anymore so I headed home. Disappointed I didn’t stay around, I would have been happier now if I had catwalk images too. If you want to see the final runway looks, this website has some lovely images.
Thank you again to Moroccanoil for inviting me backstage.
