Both Orlando Pita, working with T3 at the show, and James Kaliardos, working with MAC Cosmetics, were inspired by Diane von Furstenberg herself in creating the looks at the designer's show.
"I was particularly inspired by Diane from the Seventies," said Kaliardos, who made his focus the eye. First, he smoothed MAC black cream eyeliner on with a brush from lid to browbone, using it as an eye shadow base. Next, he layered MAC pigments in Steel Blue and Cornflower Blue over the black base to add depth, finishing with Sparkle 3D in silver for runway shimmer. Kaliardos lined the inside of the bottom lid with MAC's Smolder pencil (a deep black).Eyelashes were curled and shaded with MAC's Zoomblack mascara. MAC Studio Sculpt Foundation was applied with a brush for a perfect finish, and lips were deemphasized with MAC's Dim Lip Erase.
Pita was devoted to keeping it real with the hair. "Diane's girls have an individualized look, and this is something that looks like they could have done it themselves," he said. First, Pita spritzed hair with T3's Elevate Spray to hold the set, then wrapped hair around a large-barreled curling iron.Eschewing combs and brushes, he ran his hands through the girls' hair to separate curls and add a real-girl feeling. "I really want girls to forget that whole barrel curls thing," he said. "You know you're in trouble when the Real Housewives of wherever are wearing a style. And the hair shouldn't be more important than the clothes."

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.

As one of the most recognizable models in the world, Christy Turlington Burns has an insider’s view of the fashion industry and the allegations of sexual harassment swirling around it. “I can say that harassment and mistreatment have always been widely known and tolerated in the industry. The industry is surrounded by predators who thrive on the constant rejection and loneliness so many of us have experiences at some point in our careers,” Turlington told WWD, along with her suggestions for how the modeling world should protect younger women and men.

Formerly a studio assistant to Jemima Kirke and a design apprentice at Ghuran, she focuses on handcrafted subtleties and ancient goldsmithing techniques. “There was a really sterile feel in the environment and I wanted to have jewelry with character that shapes how you wear it everyday,” Prounis said.
