Picks From Our Stylists' Cache
Behind the Shoot
You’ve read the magazines. You’ve seen the shoots. But what does it look like backstage at a HONOLULU Shops fashion photo shoot?
The answer: There's enough makeup to glamorize a small army, hairspray out the wazoo ... and a whole pile of lust-worthy looks hand-picked by our stylists Brie and Stacey. Curious to get a peek backstage into their trend treasure trove? We snuck into the Shops closet when the stylists weren’t looking and snagged a few of our favorite fashion-forward finds from their last shoot. (Don’t worry, we slipped them back in before they noticed they were missing... except maybe a bracelet or two.) Take a gander at the goodies!
