Marc Jacobs’ decision to show his collection with yellow lighting brought new meaning to the description “black and white” for the beauty look.
François Nars noted that he and longtime friend Jacobs share a fondness for the Sixties and Seventies. “We often reference that period, but we do it our own way — it’s never a copy,” said Nars. Marianne Faithfull and Joan Jett were both top of mind as he crafted the look, which had to look good both in yellow light — which turns everything black and white — and normal light. After using Nars Radiant Cream Compact Foundation and concealer on the face, Nars devised a smoky eye with Duo Eyeshadow in Pandora, Matte Eyeshadow in Bengali, Eyeliner Pencil in Black Moon and Black Valley Eye Paint. He used Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner in Santa Monica Blvd. and Larger Than Life Volumizing Mascara, finishing with an application of white eyeliner inside the bottom eyelid. Cheeks got a hint of blush in Zen or Nico, depending on skin tone, to contour. Lips were finished with Triple X Lip Gloss. Immediately before the girls hit the runway, Nars used his fingers to mess up the eyes a bit. “Marc’s girls always look decadent,” said Nars. “They’re the cool girls.”
Guido Palau, working with Redken, fashioned Joan Jett-style wigs with a razor, customizing the look for each girl.
Elisa Ferri did nails in Jezebel, the first product to be shown in the Marc Jacobs Cosmetics collection launching in September at Sephora. “Marc wanted high shine — his inspiration was a coffee table he has in his apartment which has 30 coats of lacquer,” said Ferri. “This is a very pigment-heavy formula which gives a completely opaque deep red in one coat.”
“What he has done at Vuitton is really exceptional,” said @gameofthrones’ actress Gwendoline Christie on @mrkimjones’ final show for @louisvuitton. “He has rebooted luxury in terms of making it commercial, viable and contemporary. And most importantly artistic. He has never compromised his artistic vision for the sake of commodity.” (📷: @zefashioninsider)

“And so spending so much time with a character who thinks like that, inevitability you try and analyze yourself and go back and think about your own demons and dark chapters that you had in your life,” says @thedanielbruhl of his role in TNT’s “The Alienist.” The show, set in the Gilded Age of New York, also stars Dakota Fanning and Luke Evans.

“My personal philosophy to beauty is paying attention to oneself. I love to be outdoors, lots of fresh air, trying to take care of yourself as best you can.

According to @laurentsai, former “Terrace House: Aloha State” cast member, she didn’t know she was auditioning for the Japanese version of “Real World.” “I was telling a couple of my friends and someone’s like, ‘That sounds a lot like Terrace House.’ I was like, ’No it can’t be.’” Turns out, it was. But Tsai isn’t just a reality star — she’s an illustrator who has worked with Starbucks Japan and most recently, she’s dipping her toes into the fashion world.
