As a fashion writer, or photographer, there are few things that can beat the excitement of being invited backstage at a runway show for one of the world's greatest brands. But even the most seasoned globe trotters can't be everywhere all the time. So for those times that we can't be there in person, we are thrilled when our friends at major labels offer to share behind-the-scenes photography with Style Wylde readers. 

Such is the case with these amazing images from the Max Mara Resort 2016 collection, which debuted in London late last week. The look was a soft-but-strong natural beauty, with gorgeous glowing skin and softly pulled back hair. We hope you guys love them as much as we do!
