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.

Spotted last night at the @erdem x @hm launch event: Kate Bosworth, Rashida Jones, Kirsten Dunst and Selma Blair. The party, which took place in LA, also marked the opening of their pop-up shop. “I was interested in creating a collection that wasn’t in any way disposable. It was about pieces you’d create and keep forever, things that have a permanence to it,” designer Erdem Moralioglu said. #wwdeye (📷: Katie Jones)
Renee Zellweger in yellow in 2001 and again in 2017. Chosen as one of the 12 @pantone Leading Spring Colors (and dubbed “Meadowlark”), it only makes sense that the bright hue stands the test of time and is making a resurgence this season, seen already on stars like @blakelively and @gigihadid.
