I must admit, I have a huge photography crush on photography backstage at fashion shows. There is something about the simple and very natural feel when it comes to these shots. There is no overdone lighting, no extreme retouch, no licking of perfume bottles. . . At the same time it gives us mortals a peek into what happens behind the scenes of the fashion shows we dream of once getting invited to. . . X fingers for accidental invitations to Lanvin, Tom Ford and Celine please? (And that is just a flicker of the list) So here are some of my favorite backstage beauty shots at the moment.
