“We’re making girls look fresh with a red lip,” makeup artist Diane Kendal, who was working for MAC Cosmetics, said of the look she created for the Tommy Hilfiger show. “It’s a really beautiful, gorgeous red-pink lip.”
Kendal created the matte look with a shade called Ruby Woo, dusting a tissue over the lips for a “worn-in, old” appearance.
“The rest of the skin is shiny, like she was out all day and going out in the evening,” said Kendal. “It’s slightly dewy, sun-kissed.”
Highlighter was dusted on the cheeks and the brows were groomed to give definition, but the eyes had nothing more than mascara on them.
“Tommy wanted to keep the girls looking really young,” Kendal remarked.
On the hair side, Eugene Souleiman, who worked on behalf of Wella Professionals, created a glamorous look that combined “big flowy waves and a natural blown-out quality.”
He began by giving each model a blowout “for shine, control and a bend at the end,” during which he spritzed the hair with Wella’s Crystal Styler blow-dry spray. Then he separated the hair into multiple pieces and curled some with “humongous” Hot Tools barrel tongs for “a very soft wave.”
Curling some pieces and not others, he said, provided two textured effects: One that comes from a blowout and another that gives movement.
“It’s relaxed, natural feeling hair,” he said. “Lauren Bacall in a modern, looser way. Tommy is about a very chic and healthy feeling behind the women he designs for, so I want it to look healthy — sophisticated in a natural way. This is about the American beauty.”

For the holidays, @Burberry partnered with 20-year-old artist @blondeymccoy on a series of three outdoor murals in downtown Manhattan. The murals are McCoy’s interpretation of a Christmas eve party, the idea of charity and the spirit of family. His third mural, pictured here, is the most personal. The image depicts McCoy’s grandparents and father in London’s Trafalgar Square in the Seventies. “My work often features lots of sentimental objects.” #wwdeye

In a partnership between the @metopera and the @englishnationalopera, “Marnie” was born. The opera, with costumes sponsored by @mrporterlive, is an adaptation of the 1961 thriller by Winston Graham.

Read WWD’s interview with Phillips, where she talks about her inspiration for the opera’s costumes on WWD.com #wwdfashion
@barneysnyc took a different approach to their holiday windows this year.
