At the Nanette Lepore show on Wednesday, the look was a strong, powerful face in neutral tones and sculpted, space-inspired hair.
“The inspiration is a trip to Mars,” said hairstylist James Pecis for Bumble and bumble. The stylist created two looks for the show, a dramatic variation of an updo and a ponytail. For the former, he began by brushing the hair into two asymmetrical ponytails. He then saturated each with Thickening Hairspray, twisted them into two “crunchy knots” and pinned them to the top of the head. He left the ends sticking out, and flatironed where needed. For the second style, he pulled the center of hair into a mohawk, fastened at the neck and saturated the sides with Thickening Hairspray.
For the face, makeup artist Max Delorme for MAC Cosmetics perfected the skin with Mineralize Foundation to create a “no-effect, minimum-texture finish.” He brushed blush up along the cheekbone, ending at the temples. To give strength to the eyes, he applied black liner — a shade called Feline — along the very inner part of the lower lid. At the outer corners of the eye, he used a shimmering bronze eye shadow, smudging it for a punk effect. Lips were almost nude, blending with the skin tone, with a dab of shimmer in the center.
“It’s a strong look from far away, but up close there is a softness to it,” said Delorme, who sought with texture and color to create the look.
Taking the final spot on the mens’ portion of New York Fashion Week calendar next month will be none other than @tomford. Though he’s shown his men’s wear in New York in the past, this will mark the first time the designer has shown his men’s collection alone during New York Fashion Week: Men’s. His runway show will debut on February 6 at the Park Avenue Armory. #wwdfashion
London-based couture house @ralphandrusso has certainly been in the spotlight, having its dresses worn by @beyonce, Angelina Jolie, Meghan Markle in her engagement photos and more. For couture, Tamara Ralph focused on ornamentation — think: feathers with chain mail, jet embroidery and clusters of pearls and crystals.

Minnie Mouse celebrated her 90th birthday by getting her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. For her celebratory luncheon, @coach’s creative director @stuartvevers dressed her in a custom made prairie dress, complete with Vever’s take on the polka dot – black sequined versions – under a cropped motorcycle jacket. The designer also put his own mark on Minnie’s classic red shoes, infusing the color with sparkles and adding some Coach crystals. “We chose colors that were very Minnie and also represented quintessential Coach elements,” said Vevers. #wwdfashion #nationalpolkadotday (📷: George Chinsee)
@nickjonas is unveiling his first-ever apparel collection through a partnership with John Varvatos. The limited-edition capsule, which makes its debut in spring, also marks the first time the designer has collaborated with anyone on a line. “The process in working with Nick is amazing. It’s inspiring to be around someone who is not only connected with the trade that they do, but also with what’s happening in the environment around him, and how that connects to what we do with style,” said Varvatos.

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)
