Rosa Chà¡‘s Summer 2008 collection, designed by Amir Slama, showcased beautiful, architectural swimwear, with nods to the retro shapes of the 1950’s and ’60’s. A neutral color palette mixed pale and bright hues, including pinks, whites, blacks, grays, blues and splashes of bright green. Bold tribal jewelry by Juliana Scarpa added edge to the collection.

Backstage at Rosa Chà¡, star stylist Edward Tricomi of Warren Tricomi gave models lush, bouncy curls with tons of shine and movement. On the makeup front, check out the fabulous Flip video below for our exclusive backstage interview with MAC‘s Chief Makeup Artist, Gordon Espinet, who gave models a 70’s inspired, naturally gorgeous-but-better face with Goldspice, a bronze cream eyeshadow (from MAC’s upcoming limited edition Metal X collection, out 11.29), a nude, glow-y cheek and layer upon layer of black mascara.
