Backstage at Narciso Rodriguez, the look was chic, modern and simple, with an edge.
“I’m using a very light hand,” said Shiseido artistic director and lead makeup artist Dick Page. “We are doing eyes and lips only.” Page began by using a makeup remover to erase around the eyes, to do a “backwards” makeup application, he said. Page used coppery shade Squirrel and brown-hued Cavern from his Luminizing Satin Eye Color Collection. “The shadow looks a little dirty because of the makeup remover,” said Page. “It’s a little undone.” Lips were shaded in a mauvy brown hue, a mix of Perfect Rouge Glowing Matte in Whisper and Wink. “The models come in looking gorgeous, they leave looking gorgeous,” said Page. “We are doing as little as possible.”
Eugene Souleiman, for Wella, created an “aerodynamic” hairstyle with a specific four-step process, inspired loosely by the look and feel of a bicycle helmet. Strands were pulled back tightly and smoothed with a spritz of water. After being separated into two sections, Soulemain braided one and flipped it up and pinned it up. He then crimped the top of hair at a 90-degree angle and created a chic bouffant. “It’s all about contrasts,” said Souleiman. “It is clean, shiny and beautiful, but it has some texture and matteness to it.” The style was held in place with hair spray and flyaways were tucked into the style. “It’s a bit of an alien head shape that’s sophisticated and beautiful,” said Souleiman.
Taking the final spot on the mens’ portion of New York Fashion Week calendar next month will be none other than @tomford. Though he’s shown his men’s wear in New York in the past, this will mark the first time the designer has shown his men’s collection alone during New York Fashion Week: Men’s. His runway show will debut on February 6 at the Park Avenue Armory. #wwdfashion
London-based couture house @ralphandrusso has certainly been in the spotlight, having its dresses worn by @beyonce, Angelina Jolie, Meghan Markle in her engagement photos and more. For couture, Tamara Ralph focused on ornamentation — think: feathers with chain mail, jet embroidery and clusters of pearls and crystals.

Minnie Mouse celebrated her 90th birthday by getting her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. For her celebratory luncheon, @coach’s creative director @stuartvevers dressed her in a custom made prairie dress, complete with Vever’s take on the polka dot – black sequined versions – under a cropped motorcycle jacket. The designer also put his own mark on Minnie’s classic red shoes, infusing the color with sparkles and adding some Coach crystals. “We chose colors that were very Minnie and also represented quintessential Coach elements,” said Vevers. #wwdfashion #nationalpolkadotday (📷: George Chinsee)
@nickjonas is unveiling his first-ever apparel collection through a partnership with John Varvatos. The limited-edition capsule, which makes its debut in spring, also marks the first time the designer has collaborated with anyone on a line. “The process in working with Nick is amazing. It’s inspiring to be around someone who is not only connected with the trade that they do, but also with what’s happening in the environment around him, and how that connects to what we do with style,” said Varvatos.

For @massimogiorgetti of @msgm, the Nineties are his favorite decade. “They had a huge impact on my personal growth. What I like of the Nineties is that they are not so precise in terms of style as other decades…there was actually a bit of everything,” he said. As seen on MSGM’s Spring 2018 show: tie-dye and a bit of grunge, two styles that are synonymous with the decade #wwdfashion #wwddecades (📷: @kukukuba)
