Thirties sepia photos inspired Charlotte Tilbury, working for MAC Cosmetics, at the Donna Karan show. “It’s luminous, glowing and digital,” said Tilbury of the look. She started with a cream highlighter around the eyes — “no contour, just light,” she said — and added chocolate brown mascara from root to lash on the top lids only. Next, she used MAC’s Paint Pot in Indian Wood, a rich bronze, completely around the eye in a Thirties rounded shape, adding MAC Pro Gold Pigment on the center of the eyelid. She finished the eye with MAC All Over Gloss for a shiny finish. Tilbury then used MAC Face & Body Foundation where needed on the face and in the eyebrows, putting concealer on the lips to keep the emphasis on the eyes.
Eugene Souleiman, working for Wella at the show, called his creation “romance meets raw,” noting he wanted to do something completely different from the polished look he created at Donna Karan last season. “It’s all about enhancing the imperfections,” he said. Souleiman started by liberally applying Wella Beach Spray to the hair to create a dry, textured finish, then did a low side part, pulling the hair back and rolling it up, flipping it in on itself. “It’s like loops of hair, but not overly done,” he said. “It feels opulent, and when the clothes hit it, it will become even more undone.” A nightmare to be sure for many hairstylists, but not for Souleiman: “I want the hair to feel like it’s been in the elements,” he said. “It mimics the fabrics in Donna’s collection — many of them have a great crumpled texture.”
Deborah Lippmann for Lippmann Collection did the nails in Believe, a color she created with Cher. “She wanted something fabulous that she could wear with both silver and gold, and yet wasn’t too much to wear with street clothes,” said Lippmann. “This shade is a mix of both silver and gold.
Usually Donna prefers nudes, but she wanted something shimmery, something that would pop without being overstated.” Lippmann applied the color to both fingers and toes: “The matchy-matchy trend is back,” she said.
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)
