All eyes were on, well, the eyes at Jason Wu — where Diane Kendal, working with Lancôme, made gleaming gold eyelids the center of attention.
“This season, Jason’s clothes are very fluid,” said Kendal. “This was a way to give a sense of fluidity, with glitter catching the lights on the runway.”
After prepping the skin with Lancôme’s DreamTone Skin Correcting Serum, Kendal used Teint Visionnaire Skin Correcting Duo and Effacernes Waterproof Protective Undereye Concealer to create a perfect canvas. Next, Kendal turned to the color collection she and the designer devised, which is now on counter. Color Design Eye Brightener All-in-One 5 Shadow & Liner Palette in Bronze Amour was first swept across the eyelids, and next Kendal curled eyelashes and added Hypnôse Star Mascara to lashes. Jason Wu for Lancôme Artliner in Noir rimmed the eyes, and Kendal finished the look with a healthy application of rose-gold glitter in the center of eyelids. Cheeks got a light dusting of Blush Subtil in Cedar Rose, while Kendal finished with clear lip balm. Nails also got a coat of clear Lancôme polish.
Odile Gilbert, working with Kérastase at the show, parted hair in the middle and used a flatiron and Kérastase Gloss Appeal Shine Spray, adding long hairpieces to the models’ heads and cutting them bluntly at the bottom. Next, she used the brand’s Short Mania pomade to slick hair to the scalp. Gilbert then used Laque Couture Hair Spray to hold things in place and finished the look with a gold barrette.

For the holidays, @Burberry partnered with 20-year-old artist @blondeymccoy on a series of three outdoor murals in downtown Manhattan. The murals are McCoy’s interpretation of a Christmas eve party, the idea of charity and the spirit of family. His third mural, pictured here, is the most personal. The image depicts McCoy’s grandparents and father in London’s Trafalgar Square in the Seventies. “My work often features lots of sentimental objects.” #wwdeye

In a partnership between the @metopera and the @englishnationalopera, “Marnie” was born. The opera, with costumes sponsored by @mrporterlive, is an adaptation of the 1961 thriller by Winston Graham.

Read WWD’s interview with Phillips, where she talks about her inspiration for the opera’s costumes on WWD.com #wwdfashion
@barneysnyc took a different approach to their holiday windows this year. Instead of Christmas decor, Barneys tapped @thehaasbrothers to tell a story of positivity, gratitude and inclusivity via heartwarming silliness and humor. “It’s about kids and it’s about coming together and being family and loving each other,” said Simon Haas. #wwdfashion (📷: @joshuascottphoto)
