“She’s a rich fashionista from the Eighties,” said lead MAC makeup artist, James Kaliardos about the look he created for Ruffian’s fall showcase, Tuxedo Park. “A little eccentric even.”
Makeup, which channeled eighties icon, Princess Gloria von Thurn und Taxis, was “regal but modern.” Eyelids were washed in a violet shadow and given a winged oval shape, cheeks, dusted in a soft rose blush, had a “flushed” feel and lips were muted out into a neutral shade.
The sky-high aerodynamic coifs, styled by Neil Moodie for Bumble and bumble, were inspired by “Ginger Rogers doing the walk of shame after being out with Fred Astaire,” he said.
Moodie used Bumble and bumble Prep Spray and Styling lotion throughout hair and Bumble’s newest product, Bb Texture Hair (Un)Dressing Creme, which launches in March, along the hair line. “We did a lot of backcombing,” said Moodie, who fashioned the teased style into a volume-infused upsweep. “There’s a very matte texture to it,” said Moodie. “We left the flyways. Moodie, who took inspiration from Princess Grace’s regal hairstyles and Eighties artists like Basqiat, said the goal was “an updo that’s anything but old fashioned.”
Nails, done by CND, featured Ruffian’s signature half-moon design and oval shape, and donned their own black and pearl-hued tuxedos.
About the girl behind the beauty look? “She’s from the deco age of elegance,” said Ruffian designer Brian Wolk. “She’s luxurious but edgy.”
A new Joan Rivers coffee table book, titled “Joan Rivers Confidential,” gives readers never-before-seen photos and letters of the late comedian throughout her life. “Because of her drive to always be fresh, she kept records of every appearance, every performance, all the jokes that were used on TV, all the clothes that were worn,” said Rivers’ daughter Melissa. Here, Rivers poses at the “Tonight Show” in Tracy Mills in 1985. Read more about the book and see more photos at WWD.com. #wwdeye
After a career at New York hot spots like Narcissa, Dovetail and Nix, @chefjfraser has expanded to the West Village with The Loyal, a modernized take on an American brasserie. “And as I’ve gone through my career I’ve felt some departure from that kind of simple, straightforward [cooking]. This is meant to take on the idea of ‘what if the American brasserie was invented today?’” #wwdeye (📷: @chinseephoto)
