While mining Dior’s archives, the house’s artistic director Maria Grazia Chiuri discovered that within a year after Christian Dior showed his first collection 70 years ago the brand was selling worldwide. So in keeping with this globetrotting tradition, she opted to wink at women travelers of yesteryear, like Amelia Earhart, for the beauty look this couture season.“They didn’t wear much makeup,” said Peter Philips, creative and image director for makeup at Dior. “They were even a bit weathered, and I want that look.“So we’re going for healthy skin — a little bit weathered maybe — full eyebrows, a bit bushy,” he continued.Key products Philips used to achieve this were Diorskin Forever Foundation, DiorShow Brow Styler and some metallic-hued cream eye shadows from the upcoming fall collection.“They have to look like they’ve been traveling the world effortlessly,” Philips continued.Hairstylist Guido Palau opted for a simple ponytail with a windswept texture. “There’s a romance to her,” he said, referring to the models. “She’s traveled, so it’s a bit disheveled.”Palau, using Redken Wind Blown 5 Dry Finish Spray, worked tresses using different sized curling irons. “It should feel easy and cinematic almost, like they are caught in a moment — not perfect,” he said of the style, where hair was parted to a side with fingers. “It feels very womanly, easy and sophisticated."
Etro’s show, titled “The Tree of Life,” was a celebration of the house’s 50th anniversary. “My father founded the company in 1968, which was the year of counterculture and psychedelia. It’s really a show that celebrates that and the paisley design of India and its origin,” said Veronica Etro. #wwdfashion #mfw #ss18 (📷: @delphineachard)
