Three different colored clothing sections and three different colored lips went hand and hand at Prabal Gurung. “He wanted the women to have this beautiful sense of elegance, perfection and beauty, as if they were confined in a cage,” said Charlotte Tilbury working with MAC Cosmetics. With three color combinations, the lips were center stage.
The first was a bubble gum pink, which was created with MAC’s lip pencil in pinkie and a mix of white and crimson. The second was lavender made with Just Wonderful Lip Pencil and a mix of crimson, white and burgundy. The final lip look was a fluorescent orange created with What a Blast and a custom lip mix.
Next, Tilbury created a modern canvas with Complete Comfort Creme, Mineralize Moisture SPF15 Foundation, Matchmaster Concealer and Prep + Prime Transparent CC Powder. “The clothes match the face,” said Tilbury, “so the way we’re translating that into the makeup is we’re creating mannequinlike flawless skin.” The eyebrows were brushed up, and there was no mascara applied to the lashes. Coffee Eye Pencil was used to create a Fifties feline cat-eye.
Shiny and glossy were the key words for the hair from lead stylist Paul Hanlon. Working with Osis products, Hanlon created a deep side part and slick straight hair with a plastic effect. “Rather than giving the hair body, we’re sculpting the hair,” said Hanlon. He began with Softn’ Straight to prep the hair and build up texture. He dried it with Schwarzkopf Professional Black Diamond Ceramic Digital Blow Dryer and sectioned strands horizontally. He sprayed Osis Elastic Flexible Hold Hairspray at the roots while combing hair down so it’s flat to the head. Then, Hanlon created a side part on the right and tucked the hair behind the ear. He coated it with Flatliner Heat Protectant and pressed it with Schwarzkopf Professional One Inch Black Diamond Digital Hand Touch Ceramic Styling Iron. To achieve the vinyllike shine he finished with Osis Sparkler. “Lots and lots of gloss,” he said. “So it’s very latexy.”
In its seventh season working with Prabal Gurung, Sally Hansen collaborated with the designer to create three exclusive nail shades. The assortment, which is part of the Complete Salon Manicure collection, contains Lady Lavender, A Wink of Pink and Mint Condition. Each model wore a different shade and was given a French manicure that included a matte base with a shiny tip.

It was about pieces you’d create and keep forever, things that have a permanence to it,” designer Erdem Moralioglu said. #wwdeye (📷: Katie Jones)

As one of the most recognizable models in the world, Christy Turlington Burns has an insider’s view of the fashion industry and the allegations of sexual harassment swirling around it. “I can say that harassment and mistreatment have always been widely known and tolerated in the industry. The industry is surrounded by predators who thrive on the constant rejection and loneliness so many of us have experiences at some point in our careers,” Turlington told WWD, along with her suggestions for how the modeling world should protect younger women and men.
