Forties glamour was the name of the beauty game at Carolina Herrera.
Orlando Pita, working with Moroccanoil at the show, devised a vintage-inspired style that was anything but ancient. He began by applying Moroccanoil Heat Styling Protection throughout the hair to prepare it for blow-drying, then blew hair out straight (fine-haired models also got a bit of Volumizing Mousse.) Next, he applied Hydrating Styling Cream all over the hair, concentrating it at the roots and top of hair because the look was so close to the top of the head. Next, he created a middle part, creating two sections, then added a third part from behind the ear, up to the crown and down to behind the ear on the other side. After lightly backcombing hair about two inches from the root, he took each front part, rolled it very tightly and pinned the roll at its seam as well as behind the ears. Pita then took strands remaining from the ends of the rolls, twisting and crisscrossing them and pinning them at ear level to create a focal point to secure hair that would be rolled up from the remaining back section. Finally, he raised the back sections slightly above the nape, rolling them tight but a little wider than in the front, then tucked them in and pinned, attacking flyaways with Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream. To finish, he spritzed hair with Glimmer Shine Spray for extra luminosity.
Diane Kendal, working with MAC Cosmetics at the show, created classic beauty using foundation, Bare Face blush, a bit of black cream liner and lips in MAC’s Hot Tahiti, a reddish-coral hue. Eyes were opened with a light cream shimmer from lid to brow, with brows defined for emphasis. Nails, keyed by Gina Edwards, were done in Essie’s Ladylike.

“I just wanted to create this fully rounded character, but I do think what excited me most was just the opportunity to give a group of people representation that I feel needs it. I like to do characters in projects that stand for something and Karolina definitely does, so that was really exciting to me,” @ginnygardner says of her new role in @hulu’s “The Runaways.” Gardner plays Karolina Dean, a queer superhero, which is a rarity for @marvel.

“Azzedine has been one of the biggest influences in my life. He has always been such a strong, loving, fatherly figure to me. I call him Papa. His designs are indescribably unique, they are pieces of art. He knew how to make the female form look its loveliest. I have so many memories of him; my favorite might be during my first show with him in Paris. He liked me and he wanted to help me get more work. He called all his friends at Kenzo and Comme des Garcons, and asked them to book me. They said, ‘But she can’t walk!’ And he said, ‘but she has such a great ass!' His friendship and support has been the great privilege of my career. I can't imagine life without him. Repose en paix mon Papa.” - @stephanieseymour tells @wwd. #wwdfashion (📷: @steveeichner) #alaia #azzedinealaia
Azzedine Alaïa, flanked by two of his closest friends, models Stephanie Seymour and Naomi Campbell.
He designed Seymour’s dress for her 1995 wedding to Peter Brant, and treated Campbell (who famously called him Papa), like a daughter. For more on the legendary designer, tap the link in bio. #wwdfashion #alaia #azzedinealaia
