True to her roots, Donna Karan kept the DKNY girl downtown where she belongs.
Charlotte Willer for Maybelline began by using the brand’s BB Cream. She filled in the brows with the Master Shape Brow Pencil and made them a bit larger, then applied Great Lash Clear Mascara to the lashes. She used a hint of bronzer underneath the cheekbones to give a little bit of attitude. And on the lip, Willer applied Lip Sensationals in two shades: Totally Toffee and Born With It. “[Karan’s] inspiration was the melting pot of New York,” said Willer. “People from everywhere and how people from all over could be wearing this kind of look with no effort.”
“She’s looking at her DNA and coming up with something that’s today,” said Eugene Souleiman, lead stylist for Wella. “There’s knitwear, outerwear, sportswear, sexy dresses and I just thought that we need to tie everything together.” Beginning with damp locks, Souleiman used Wella’s Hydrate Finish to add a healthy shine. He then blew out the hair and created a clean center part, brushed the hair and tucked it over the ears. He completed the look with the Thermal Image Heat Protection Spray to hydrate the hair. “I wanted to do something very premium,” said Souleiman. “It’s a minimal look, but it works very well.”
Since the collection was composed of prints and patterns, Gina Edwards for Essie created a minimal matte gray nail. Edwards layered Allure upon Master Plan to tone down the gray and topped it off with Mad About You.

Spotted last night at the @erdem x @hm launch event: Kate Bosworth, Rashida Jones, Kirsten Dunst and Selma Blair. The party, which took place in LA, also marked the opening of their pop-up shop. “I was interested in creating a collection that wasn’t in any way disposable. It was about pieces you’d create and keep forever, things that have a permanence to it,” designer Erdem Moralioglu said. #wwdeye (📷: Katie Jones)
Renee Zellweger in yellow in 2001 and again in 2017. Chosen as one of the 12 @pantone Leading Spring Colors (and dubbed “Meadowlark”), it only makes sense that the bright hue stands the test of time and is making a resurgence this season, seen already on stars like @blakelively and @gigihadid.
