India in the Sixties inspired the hair and makeup at Marchesa. Talia Shobrook, working with Laura Mercier, started by creating “flawless, illuminated skin.” She applied Laura Mercier Repair Oil-Free Day Lotion SPF 15 and Laura Mercier Foundation Primer - Hydrating, mixed Laura Mercier Moisture Supreme Foundation and Laura Mercier Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 and applied the blend all over the face to create an illuminated base. Next, she concealed where necessary with Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage and contoured cheekbones and forehead with Laura Mercier Bronzing Pressed Powder in Dune Bronze. The eyes were the centerpiece, “highlighting the opulence of the collection,” Shobrook noted. She applied Laura Mercier Eye Basics in Wheat across the lid, then contoured the crease of the eye using Laura Mercier Bronzing Pressed Powder in Dune Bronze. Using Laura Mercier Tightline Cake Eye Liner in Black Ebony and Laura Mercier Tightline Activator, she drew a clean, straight line across the lower lash line. Next came one coat of Laura Mercier Long Lash Mascara in Black to the top and bottom lashes. Shobrook finished by applying small pieces of gold leaf to the inner corner of the eye, using lip gloss to keep it in place. Subtle mocha lips “fit for a Sixties Indian goddess” completed the look, with Laura Mercier Hydratint SPF 15 in Mocha Tint.

“I just wanted to create this fully rounded character, but I do think what excited me most was just the opportunity to give a group of people representation that I feel needs it. I like to do characters in projects that stand for something and Karolina definitely does, so that was really exciting to me,” @ginnygardner says of her new role in @hulu’s “The Runaways.” Gardner plays Karolina Dean, a queer superhero, which is a rarity for @marvel.

“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
