Tom Pecheux cleverly interpreted the evolution of Derek Lam’s spring 2014 collection with a beauty look which evolved over the course of the show. “Women are busy — they don’t have time to go home and change before going out at night,” said Pecheux, creative makeup director for Estée Lauder. “So we decided to play with that in a minimalist way.”
Pecheux started look one by prepping the skin with Estée Lauder’s Revitalizing Supreme Global Anti-Aging Creme, Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex and Idealist Pore Minimizing Skin Refinisher. Next, he applied Double Wear Light Stay-in-Place Makeup and concealer for a perfect base, topping that with Lucidity Translucent Loose Powder. Turning to the eyes, he applied antique gold cream eyeshadow, part of a limited-edition palette coming from Lauder for spring 2014, and finished with a pale nude lipstick. For the models’ second pass down the runway, Pecheux added a sweep of navy eyeliner in a cube shape along the outside third of the lid. For the final look, Pecheux rimmed eyes with navy blue pencil and added lots of mascara. Orlando Pita, working with Phyto and T3 at the show, created a low ponytail with what he called “second-day” hair. He began by splitting hair into three horizontal sections — one at the crown, one at the temple and one over the ears. He then split each layer into three-inch sections, spraying each with Phytolaque Soie Light Hold Hair Spray and blowdrying with T3’s Featherweight Luxe 2i Dryer. Using the T3 BodyWaver 1.75” Styling Iron, Pita created an “S” shaped wave using an “over/under” technique. Starting midway down each model’s head, he held iron horizontally and placed it under the first section, clamping each section and holding it in place for a few seconds. Removing the iron, Pita then placed it 2 inches below the first curl, using his other hand to hold the hair below the iron, lifting up and holding for a few seconds to create a soft bend in the opposite direction. After repeating the technique on all other sections of the hair, Pita worked Phyto Professional Fiber Paste to create natural texture with a bit of hold. Pita then created a soft side part, securing hair in a low ponytail and finishing with Phytolaque Soie Light Hold Hair Spray.
Jin Soon created what she called “the perfect nude” on nails using her product line. After applying Nostalgia, a rosy beige, she topped nails with Tulle, a pale pink and added a clear gloss to finish.

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.

Read WWD’s interview with Phillips, where she talks about her inspiration for the opera’s costumes on WWD.com #wwdfashion
@barneysnyc took a different approach to their holiday windows this year. Instead of Christmas decor, Barneys tapped @thehaasbrothers to tell a story of positivity, gratitude and inclusivity via heartwarming silliness and humor. “It’s about kids and it’s about coming together and being family and loving each other,” said Simon Haas. #wwdfashion (📷: @joshuascottphoto)
