While invited to photograph the backstage flurry, I felt juiced up while watching the participants dash around in an array of fashion voodoo and gowns, sparkles of fantasy eyes-shadows blinking at the mirrors and epic moments of hairsprays spritzing !

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The “Beauty Bash” drew over 3,000 attendees and the gala spirit at the Palladium Ballroom exploded into a catchy fever of motivational sparkle.

What better place to whoop it up at than Gilley’s Palladium Ballroom where we caroused the backstage rooms, pranced around the stage area, hit the bar a couple of times (I drank Sprite!) and relished in visits with everyone.  Before the show and behind the scenes is as wild as eccentric can get!

If there’s one thing a runway show demands, it’s the high-grazing hair fluffed with fringe, locks, strands, tints, glitz, manes and whisks!  No the wind didn’t blow it, the stylist did!  The glam-worthy ideas were in full throttle with high hopes of winning this competition!

The students followed this year’s themes:

Journey of Enlightenment ~ a Spring/Summer motif!

New Frontier Uncharted Territories ~ an Autumn/Winter aria!

 

No matter the theme that hit the stage, they were all winners to me!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now for the cat walk!

I couldn’t resist, just had to do some art works for the stage models and their amazing struts!

I have a few people I would like to thank for allowing me to attend and photograph this majestic event….

My little sister, Dana, is a student at Ogle with aspirations of owning her own Medi-Spa once she graduates (and for my Gallery to be attached with it).  I have already had years of make-up artistry through Barbizon Modeling School, Theatrical & Stage Make-Up in college and as a Beauty Consultant.  I always did my own make-up for my modeling sessions and applied fantasy, theatrical, modeling and wedding applications on many ladies in the past.  With all this excitement, I’m checking into getting my Make-Up Artist Certification soon and plan to work alongside my sis!

And…Ms. Boyd, from the Denton Ogle School, has treated me like family every time I visit the Spa for my facials and hair colors & styles….

Here she is busy as a bee teaching a “have to have” technique for airbrushing make-up!

Lastly, while we drooled, awed, cheered and photographed til our little hearts pounced away with the shimmering of memories to savor forever, we found little Kermit sitting quietly and patiently awaiting our return…. 

Thanks for your patience, Kermit!
