Relaxed, easy beauty was the order of the day at DKNY. Eugene Souleiman, working with Wella at the show, created hair that was “fresh, chic and controlled” on the top and more textured toward the ends. Souleiman began by doing a deep side part and spraying the hair with Wella’s Perfect Setting at the roots, blowing the top of the hair dry to a smooth finish. Next, he took a small section of hair from the front, tucking it behind the ears. Souleiman then gathered the hair from the nape to ends and held it in a French twist while spraying it with Wella’s Ocean Spritz. He released the hair and dried it with a diffuser for a tousled texture from nape to ends.
Charlotte Willer, working with Maybelline at the show, aimed for “a polished, natural look — she’s an active girl who’s going from sports to work to out at night.” Willer first perfected skin with Maybelline’s Dream Fresh 8-in-1 BB Cream, adding Dream Lumi Touch to conceal skin imperfections. After applying three coats of black Mega Plush Mascara, Willer applied Maybelline Baby Lips lip balm from lash line to brow to catch the light.Next, she applied Fit Me powder in the t-zone for polish, and on lips used Maybelline’s Totally Toffee or Born With It lip color for a natural look. She added a touch of Baby Lips on top of the lip color to catch the light.
Dawn Sterling, doing nails for Essie at the show, used one coat of Fed Up, a sheer nude, on nails, finishing with Good to Go fast-dry topcoat.

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.
