Art in Heels

May 14, 2012

We had the privilege of doing the hair and makeup for last weeks Art in Heels event that benefited the UVA Art Museum and WHTJ-PBS. It was a grand affair held at the Main Steet Arena. They joined forces to bring intriguing fashions to Charlottesville from celebrity designers Johnathan Kayne and Heidi Elnora of the popular TV show Project Runway, and Cate Lyon, whose designs have been produced for Victoria's Secret and Henri Bendel. The hair and makeup were haute couture and really gave us a chance to show what we could do.

We worked with 14 models, some who were reigning beauty pageant winners (Miss Teen United States, Miss United States, Ms. United States, Miss District of Columbia, and so on) and the remaining girls were agency models. We set up a staging area in the Omni hotel at 1pm and then moved to behind the stage in the Arena for the actual runway show. A real challenge was the final wedding sequence where we had to drench the first model and slowly, by degrees, wet the other models until the final ones were dry with huge hair!

It was a rewarding day for the Face Value team. Look at Facebook to see pictures of the event.
