What do pretty, feminine frocks and teens with attitudes have in common? Everything, according to the artists backstage at Creatures of the Wind. For Bumble and bumble, Anthony Turner took the designer’s inspiration and counterbalanced the collection of floral prints and bright colors with mousy, undone ponytails inspired by teen angst. He used Full Form Mousse through the hair and added a touch of Surf Spray to create light texture.
“I did this half-in, half-out pony that’s very ‘I couldn’t be bothered,’ ” said Turner. “Using a hair dryer, I closed the hair in at the part. Whenever I think of an angsty teenager, I always think of that.”
For the beauty, James Boehmer for Nars kept things clean and simple. “There was something really nice about the way the girls looked when they came to the casting. It was a post-summer glow mixed with that horrible humidity the past few days in New York,” said Boehmer. “It was a little bit tomboy-ish, very effortless, very cool, very undone.” He exfoliated the skin with hydrating toner, then covered blemishes with stick concealer and tinted moisturizer only when necessary. On the cheeks, he used brand-new Ligueria lipstick, a golden bronze shade, to create a pretty glow.
On the nails, Butter London global color ambassador Katie Jane Hughes used new shade Full Steam Ahead on the tips, then blotted with her fingers to blend out the color. On top, she added Diamond Geezer to create a graphite look. “We wanted the nails to look very natural, almost like earth tones,” said Hughes. “We opted for silver because it’s a color that we find in the earth, but it’s also a jewelry tone. So, it’s very elegant and pretty at the same time.”

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

In a partnership between the @metopera and the @englishnationalopera, “Marnie” was born. The opera, with costumes sponsored by @mrporterlive, is an adaptation of the 1961 thriller by Winston Graham.

@barneysnyc took a different approach to their holiday windows this year.
