Marisa Berenson and Lauren Hutton proved to be the inspirations behind the Seventies-chic look at Donna Karan.

“We wanted this beautiful, expensive yet simple look for hair,” said Eugene Souleiman, working with Wella at the show. After flat-ironing the hair, Souleiman sectioned hair into three pieces. He left the left and right panels loose, and brushed the middle panel straight to the back of the head, spraying the panel heavily with hair spray before securing it with a large gold barrette.

Charlotte Tilbury, working with MAC Cosmetics at the show, was also inspired by Berenson and Hutton for the “expensive hippie” look she created. After applying MAC Face and Body foundations in C5 and C7 to create a glowy warm canvas, she used concealer where necessary and the added Pleasure Mode blush, a russet shade, on cheekbones. Next, she added hint of Mineralize Skinfinish over the blush, and Paramount lipstick, a russet shade, with Ray of Sunshine gold Lipglass on top. But the real focus of the look was the eye area. Tilbury used Eclair Paint Pot, a bronze cream eye shadow, completely around the eye, including below the eye, and blended. Next she added individual false lashes on the top and bottom lids, coating the top lashes with MAC Optilash mascara and the bottom lashes with Haute and Naughty mascara. Brows were groomed with brow gel.

Michelle Saunders for Essie handled the nails. Fingernails got one coat of classic pink Mademoiselle, while Saunders layered three colors — Fear or Desire, a bright orange; Very Structured, a rusty red, and Meet Me at Sunset, a tomato red, to create “the perfect burnt-orange nail.”
