Highlights - AIFW 2009 Opening Ceremony

On a steely cold Saturday morning, a frantic gathering of photographers and general public were seen at the Amsterdam central station, kicking off the start of the Amsterdam International Fashion Week. Grazia staged a photo shoot where the public was able to watch some of the makeup artists/hairstylists/photographers/stylists/models at work. The winner of Holland's Next Top Model (cycle 3), Kassandra Schreuder drew crowds in as she kicked her long legs in the air for the photos.

Kassandra Schreuder - Last minute fixes before she glided onto stage

Models Posing - Remember the dress on the left (it is by EnD and you might have seen it here during AIFW July 2008)?

Shoes Shot - I couldn't help but stare at them!

Models cozying up - The temperature inside the station was icy cold.

Ladies who bun - I love the twisty addition to a classic bun.

Upclose and personal - The Makeup looked flawless and natural.


The opening for the upcoming AIFW was enough of a teaser and my anticipation is getting unbearable! I wonder what exciting A/W 2009-10 fashion we will get to lay eyes on starting Wednesday?

I like those buns too! You seem to have a really cool job to get to these events :)

fashion harald, I envied her eyebrows too and marveled at how every single hairs were combed and gelled in place! What doesn't come through in that last picture is that her complexion just glowed and even with how often she was powdered, she never looked unnatural. perfection...sigh!

La Belette Rouge, it did do wonders to that outfit. I need to pay more attention to accessories this year...

' * : . b | u 3 . : * ', I wish I had more hands so I can do my own hair like that! I never seem to be able to intricate things on the back of my head! It was really cool to be there even if a few of us were elbowing each other to get pictures!

Lucky you! I personally think its more fun to watch backstage than
to be a model.

Lovely pics!

What's up with the poufy outfits? Kassandra Schreuder looks almost pregnant (not that's it's bad to look pregnant, as long as you are, though!)
I love the grey two tone T-bar shoes. And the makeup.
