Prior to Jill Stuart's show on Saturday morning, makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury and hairstylist Bob Recine teamed up for the beauty look.
Tilbury, using Stuart's own line of color cosmetics, did what she called an overall "lush bronze," look.
On the eyes, Tilbury used a Stuart eyeshadow palette, from which she blended a pewter silver and antique bronze all around the eye, and all over the lids. The corners of the eyes got a smudge of pale gold for contrast.
"It's a thick, strong eye," said [Tilbury].
She even gave a touch of bronze to the tip of the nose and the bow of the lip. And some contour was added under highlighted cheekbones. Rounding out the look was a pretty, peachy-coral stained lip, which matched many of the colors in the palette of the fashion collection.
Recine prepped the roots of the hair for volume with L'Oreal's Mousse Volupté from the brand's L'Oreal Professionnel Texture Expert line then finished the do's with the same line's Infinium 3 hairspray.
The result? Long, flowing down-dos out of center parts with lots of movement, fluttering elegantly as girls walked the runway.
"We're doing clean, beautiful straight hair — shiny, blunt — but full," he said. "We're not doing too much to the girls.
"The inspiration comes from beauty," Recine remarked. "The most powerful beauty of all is confidence [because] perfecting beauty sacrifices character."
“Azzedine has been one of the biggest influences in my life. He has always been such a strong, loving, fatherly figure to me. I call him Papa. His designs are indescribably unique, they are pieces of art. He knew how to make the female form look its loveliest. I have so many memories of him; my favorite might be during my first show with him in Paris. He liked me and he wanted to help me get more work. He called all his friends at Kenzo and Comme des Garcons, and asked them to book me. They said, ‘But she can’t walk!’ And he said, ‘but she has such a great ass!' His friendship and support has been the great privilege of my career. I can't imagine life without him. Repose en paix mon Papa.” - @stephanieseymour tells @wwd. #wwdfashion (📷: @steveeichner) #alaia #azzedinealaia

He designed Seymour’s dress for her 1995 wedding to Peter Brant, and treated Campbell (who famously called him Papa), like a daughter. For more on the legendary designer, tap the link in bio. #wwdfashion #alaia #azzedinealaia
Azzedine Alaïa's “I-did-it-my-way” ethos stood out starkly at a time when brands are experimenting with consumer-facing fashion shows, coed formats and trans-seasonal collections – anything to perk up lackluster sales of ready-to-wear in an age of Insta-everything. “It’s not creation anymore. This becomes a purely industrial approach,” the late designer told WWD in an interview last year. “But anyway, the rhythm of collections is so stupid. It’s unsustainable. There are too many collections.” Read more about the iconic designer’s life and work on wwd.com, link in bio. #wwdfashion #azzedinealaia (📷: @WWD Archive, 1986) #alaia
Sneaker reselling app @goat’s latest exhibit, "The Greatest: New York," tells the story of New York's sneaker culture. To celebrate the exhibit, an intimate crowd gathered on Thursday night at the pop-up gallery space, located at Platform in Culver City, to hear guest speaker and illustrator @esymai talk about her own rise in streetwear and women in the business. "For me I'm just someone who is creative. I like to create things," said Chang. #wwdfashion
Azzedine Alaïa, one of the most iconic couturiers of the modern era whose body-con designs defined Eighties fashion, has died in Paris. The diminutive Tunisian-born designer, known for his structured knitted dresses with fitted waists and impeccably cut, figure-hugging second skin silhouettes was deeply admired by his peers, and counted supermodel Naomi Campbell - his adoptive daughter - among his inner circle, one of a gang of glamazons including Farida Khelfa, Carla Bruni and Stephanie Seymour who became ambassadors of his style.
