Helmut Newton photos inspired the elegant hair and makeup looks at Jason Wu’s spring show.
Odile Gilbert, working for Kérastase Paris, created an intricate braided chignon for the hair. She began by creating a long, deep part and sectioning off the hair into two sections, one in front and one in back. After spraying each section lightly with Double Force Hair Spray, Gilbert took the section at the back of the head and created an African braid, setting it with Double Force Hair Spray and tucking the end of the braid underneath to create a chignon. Gilbert then slicked back one side of the front of the head with Elixir Ultime Rose Millenaire for a chic, strong effect, and created a single finger wave on the other side of the part, also slicking back with Elixir Ultime Rose Millenaire for shine and texture. Gilbert then sprayed the entire head with Double Force Control Ultime Hair Spray to hold the style.
Diane Kendal, working with MAC Cosmetics at the show, made a multishade red lip the center of focus for the face. After skin-care expert Sunday Riley cleansed the face and used an antiredness product she will launch later this year, Kendal applied a light layer of foundation to perfect skin, then added taupe Sculpt contour by MAC under cheekbones and in the crease of the eyelids. Next, she used Poised, a pale pink blush, to emphasize cheekbones. Kendal topped the Sculpt on the eyelids with Golden Lemon Pigment, curled lashes and added Haute and Naughty Black mascara and finished with a light application of black eyeliner. Kendal used MAC Cherry Red lip pencil all over the lip, outlining the lip with Vino Lip Pencil. Next, she added MAC’s Lady at Play and Lush Life lip colors, topping that with Process Magenta Lip Mix for a high-definition look.

The party, which took place in LA, also marked the opening of their pop-up shop. “I was interested in creating a collection that wasn’t in any way disposable. 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.

24-year-old Jean Prounis is redefining the rules of jewelry. 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. Each piece is hand made in New York, either by Prounis or three other jewelers in the district. #wwdfashion
