Mercedes Benz Fashion week is always filled with fabulous people. These Fall RTW 2012 collections were more about the who’s who in the front row. One of our all time favorites , Maria Sharapova , knows how to make an entrance and cause a frenzy on the court, but the real commotion starts when she is spotted at all the hottest shows! Celebrity make up artist and friend of the AnthonyLeonard Salon , Andie Markoe -Byrne, teamed up with Leonard Zagami, Creative Director of ALS, to complete Maria ’s looks for the shows. Read on as Leonard explains the 3 looks he gave the grand slammer for this very fashionable NYC Week!
Maria , seen here with famed photographer Patrick Demarchelier and his wife Mia , had a slightly pinned back side part . “I used Super Shine Cream by Oribe to get a sleek look with out it being too overdone” says Zagami. ” I also used a Kent Brush ( for fine hair) to help smooth down fly-aways”. Maria usually parts her hair in the middle so this was a great change for her!
Maria is pictured here sitting next to Vogue Editor in Chief Anna Wintour . “I met Maria early in the morning, and washed and treated her hair with Oribe Shampoo and Masque for Beautiful Color. After a simple blow out her hair felt so great and ultra clean I didn’t need anything else , I wanted her highlights to pop since she had gotten them done the day before by my partner Anthony Palermo at my salon!
Oscar de la Renta:
Backstage with the designer himself , Maria wanted a more glamorous look by wearing a boudreaux colored hat. ” This is tricky ” explains Zagami . ” Hats can flatten hair, and if she decided to take it off , I want her hair to still look full and polished. For this I used Oribe Volumista section by section and used a 1- 1/2 inch curling iron and finished with Oribe Superfine Hairspray to achieve an evening wave without it looking to beachy or frizzy “.
