There wasn’t a hair out of place in Milan, although many of the spring looks were deliberately asymmetrical. At Missoni, Eugene Souleiman clipped black or blonde hair extensions to the backs of models’ ponytails, while at Emilio Pucci, Luigi Murenu opted for “sexy, tousled hair that’s sport on one side and glamour on the other.” Guido Palau had precise shades of blonde, red, brown and black tailored to each model’s locks at Prada, with help from colorist Josh Wood.
Milanese makeup was no less daring, with Pat McGrath’s hard-rock vision of black eyeliner and rosy blush at Versace, and Linda Cantello’s choice of diaphanous skin with viper-green eyes at Giorgio Armani. Blumarine makeup artist Tom Pecheux sexed up the otherwise demure color palette with gold eye shadow and voluminous black mascara, envisioning “a naughty girl with manners, like Courtney Love’s granddaughter.”
Lingerie shades had a starring role on the catwalks of London Fashion Week. Tones of mink, soft pink, peach, terra cotta and nude played over models’ cheeks, eyes and lips, creating an effect that MAC senior artist Cher Webb called “natural romance.” “This is an incredibly elegant, wearable look,” she said. “The models weren’t rushing to grab the cleanser when they finished a show. They wore the look afterwards. When I received the MAC spring/summer 2014 forecast palettes, I realized that these were colors that I wanted to keep and wear myself; they’re flattering on everyone.”
Elsewhere, lashes got major love at Paul Smith and Mulberry, with the lower lashes getting coated in black in a nod to Sixties ingenues. An interplay of matte and shine was at work at Peter Pilotto and Burberry, as slightly sweaty-looking skin was offset with powdery pastel lips, while grungy, smudged eyes added attitude at Erdem.
“I was touched by the fact that she lost her father, really before his time, and it was a real shock. She had two young children, she was married and she was expecting that she would have her own life for a good 25 years,” said Claire Foy about playing a young Queen Elizabeth in Netflix’s The Crown.

“It transcends the genre that is you think of a sci-fi show — you don’t expect it to be so profound or emotionally riveting,” Evan Rachel Wood told WWD of her Emmy nominated role in Westworld. styled by @samanthamcmillen_stylist 📸 @emmanmontalvan #emmys2017 #wwdeye
