PARIS – The beauty look at Rochas was slightly gender-bending.
“It’s almost like a man’s groomed hairstyle in the front, and [then] there’s kind of a Renaissance, Botticelli fat wave,” explained hairstylist Eugene Souleiman, of the models’ coifs.
Their low parts were practically “like a man’s comb-over,” he added. “So we kind of treat the girls in a way that a man would groom his hair – but like gentleman, from maybe another time.”
Souleiman used Wella’s Ocean Spritz Beach Texture Hairspray to get a matte finish.
“It takes the richness away from that elegance,” he said. “I love the fact that [the hair is] very straight and very clean, and then all of a sudden it becomes wavy.”
For makeup artist Lucia Peroni, the inspiration was “very gorgeous, very chic women, kind of a bit of a nod to those sort of Thirties, Forties women that have these gorgeous, handsome eyebrows but no makeup. So it’s a little bit masculine, a little bit handsome.”
Peroni filled in models’ brows with Clé de Peau pencils. On mouths, she used nude-colored lipstick.
Alberta Ferretti's "Rainbow Week" sweaters are back. The designer closed her #MFW show with a few day-of-the-week sweaters, which first debuted on the catwalk last January as part of the pre-fall 2017 collection. #wwdfashion (📷: @delphineachard)
