“Tough and downtown, but quite polished,” said makeup artist Sil Bruinsma, for MAC Cosmetics, when describing the inspiration for the beauty look at Rebecca Taylor. Skin was monochromatic, which was achieved with Face and Body Concealer used minimally on the face and dabbed on the lips. Before heavy eye makeup was applied, Bruinsma used Mixing Medium Shine as a base. Then, to emphasize a worn-in look, the eyes were fully rimmed and heavily smudged with Kohl Power Eye Pencil. To finish, eyebrows were brushed up.
Meanwhile, “grungy chic” were the key words from hairstylist Rutger, who worked with Oribe. The style involved free-flowing hair with unkempt waves, meant to reference the style of a girl doing her hair in front of a mirror. To achieve this, he used Foundation Mist to add moisture before the hair was dried with a blow-dryer. Then he used a curling iron to create natural looking curves. “We have to keep working the hair until we get the right thing,” he said. Smooth Style Serum was then added to create a stringy texture without making it appear greasy. “It adds cool character in the hair,” he said.
On the nail front, red was the color Keri Blair, lead nail artist for MAC, had in mind for the show. “It was just a matter of finding the right red,” she said. Blair mixed two red shades called Steamy and Flaming Rose — in a 30-to-70 ratio — to create a raspberry color. The bespoke name of the custom nail lacquer was Rosette, Blair said. A warm nude called PS None was used on the toes to create “synthetic” effect. “It makes the girls look like they have Barbie feet,” she said.

For @massimogiorgetti of @msgm, the Nineties are his favorite decade. “They had a huge impact on my personal growth. What I like of the Nineties is that they are not so precise in terms of style as other decades…there was actually a bit of everything,” he said. As seen on MSGM’s Spring 2018 show: tie-dye and a bit of grunge, two styles that are synonymous with the decade #wwdfashion #wwddecades (📷: @kukukuba)
Breaking News: @hedislimane joins @celine as its new artistic, creative and image director.

He went on to reinvent and ignite the house of Yves Saint Laurent, which he rechristened Saint Laurent, between 2012 and 2016 – all the while maintaining a close relationship with the Arnault family, which controls LVMH and Dior.

“Personally I believe the Eighties have been the richest and more vivacious period for international fashion,” Giorgio Armani said when asked what his favorite decade of fashion is. It was a moment of disruption and experimentation and only thinking back to the first years of that decade is always an emotion for me, for what they have meant to me and my work.” The influence is clear in @giorgioarmani spring 2018 collection, pictured here, which was full of bright colors and unexpected prints.
