James Kaliardos, working with MAC Cosmetics at Nanette Lepore,described the inspiration for the look as “if Oscar Wilde had a discoparty” — with a multifaceted purple eye the look’s focus.
Kaliardosprepped the skin with MAC Matchmaster Foundation, using MAC Pro Concealand Correct to cover any imperfections. Next, he turned to the eyes,using MAC’s Bordeauxline Powerpoint Eye Pencil in Dark Current as abase, following with Nocturnelle Eye Shadow and Light Touch PressedPigment. He added Reflects Bronze glitter in the inside corner of theeye, after adding a touch of Chromagraphic Nude Pencil to give theglitter something to hold on to. “Otherwise, you have glitter all overthe face instead of where you want it,” said Kaliardos, who then addedHaute and Naughty Mascara on the lashes. Cheeks were shaded withMineralize Skinfinish in Center of the Universe, a swirled multicolorblush with a shot of gold. Kaliardos then added MAC Gloss Texture to thelips, highlighting them with more Reflects Bronze glitter.
RolandoBeauchamp, working with Bumble and bumble at the show, was aiming for adowntown tough-girl feeling for the hair. He prepped the hair withBumble and bumble Does It All Spray and Bumble’s Thickening Hair Spray.Next came a side part, with one section of hair swooping over the eyesbefore being pulled back into a ponytail. Beauchamp secured the hairinto a high ponytail, teasing the entire ponytail. Next, he flatironedthe teasing and brushed it, resulting in a mass of frizz. “I love themovement the frizz makes as the girls head down the runway,” saidBeauchamp. “It’s a nice counterpart to the clothes.”

“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
