LFW: Me Backstage At Fearne Cotton & Very.co.uk SS12

Fearne Cotton took us back to the 70’s at her LFW show with Very.co.uk earlier this week. Bold colours and big hair was standard on the catwalk. Front row guests included The City star, stunning Whitney Port as well as Fearne’s bestie Holly Willoughby.
Backstage, i was with the OPI tech team picking the brightest and boldest shades for nails. Celeb stylist Karl Plewka wanted nail colours to coordinate but not match the bright orange lips that the models would be sporting. He wanted to create a Tom Ford-esq look for the runway.
Makeup
The amazing makeup team created a gorgeous retro look, sheer, natural skin, toned down eyes (there would be huge sunglasses covering them) teamed with a beautiful orange lip. The team used MAC’s Morange Amplified Lipstick with MAC Lipmix in Orange.

Nails
We used two different OPI shades to maintain that bright high gloss 70’s image. A fuchsia pink on fingers ‘You’re A Pisa Work’ and a bold lime green on toes – ‘Who The Shrek Are You’. They look like a rather odd pairing, but actually worked perfectly to create a retro look. Everyone loved it. The models were super keen on the fuchsia, Fearne also wore these shades and was pretty chuffed with her nails .

Hair
The L’Oreal hair team were fab, they added hair pieces to the girls’ natural hair, then tightly plaited them. These were taken out just before the show achieving that BIG, almost Afro effect. It looked gorgeous, i might try it out myself.

Fearne also sported big hair and Orange lips.
The Show
Following a star studded drinks reception, guests took to their seats and were dazzled by a delicious collection of colours, cuts and styles.
