Model Irina Kravchenko’s cognac locks lent inspiration for Alexander Wang’s show on Saturday. Pairing brandy-colored extensions with the model’s actual hair color, Guido Palau, lead stylist for Redken, created a two-toned low ponytail. “The clothing is a certain palette,” said Palau, “Alex really wanted a pop of color.” Combing the hair back into a low ponytail, he used Hardware Gel to create a clean head shape and then wrapped the pony with a hair extension. To complete the look, Palau applied Redken’s newest product, Diamond Oil, to strengthen and add shine.
“He liked the idea of creating a shadow with the eye,” said Diane Kendal when describing the look for Alexander Wang. Using Nars Cosmetics, Kendal began with a clean face by using Radiant Cream Compact Foundation and the Radiant Creamy Concealer. Next, she used Penny Lane Cream Blush for a hint of color. She then applied Lhasha Single Eyeshadow at the contour of the eye, blending it into the eyebrow to create depth. The lip was finished with Bianca Pure Sheer SPF Lip Treatment.
CND cofounder Jan Arnold created a sandstone manicure. Using a fan brush, she feathered CND’s Impossibly Plush from the sides towards the center. “It’s not overly fem,” said Arnold, “and it’s not what I would call sporty.” She topped it off with Speedy Top Coat and buffed it with Glossing Buffer to give the nail a naturally eroded monochromatic look.

For the holidays, @Burberry partnered with 20-year-old artist @blondeymccoy on a series of three outdoor murals in downtown Manhattan. The murals are McCoy’s interpretation of a Christmas eve party, the idea of charity and the spirit of family. His third mural, pictured here, is the most personal. The image depicts McCoy’s grandparents and father in London’s Trafalgar Square in the Seventies. “My work often features lots of sentimental objects.” #wwdeye
