Bold red lips, blue mascara and gold velvet and glitter see-through gowns graced the halls of the St. Regis Hotel. It's a perfect setting for Jason Wu's fall collection.
The tight hallways are a challenge for shooting full looks and the chaos begins to unfold as the show starts. I stuck around until the very end and was lucky to capture Adriana Lima and Amber Valletta congratulating Jason on a remarkable collection. Luke Wilson also was in attendance and even came backstage before the show to check out the looks. His backstage pass hanging on a lanyard around his neck made him look more like he was part of the crowd and no one seemed to notice. My obsession with Legally Blonde kicked in and I scurried my way over to ask for a shot. "Do I look good?" he asks me as he runs his hands through his hair. I pause, stunned. Then reply "of course!" Probably a little too eager. Another photographer pats me on the back for having the courage to approach him when no one else would.
