Rudi Lewis, lead hairstylist for Bumble and bumble described the look he created at Monique Lhuillier’s spring 2011 show as “magical but modern.”
Before beginning the updo, Lewis added Spray de Mode to blow-dried hair, which he then pulled up into a “sculpted high ponytail.” A section of hair on the top of the head was left out of the updo and given a softer texture.
Lewis then tucked hair up in a roll, using only one long piece of elastic to create the refined look. “This is reminiscent of an Irving Penn woman,” said Lewis. “It’s Fifties without being too retro.” Lewis added that models were styled to look “expensive” and polished. “It’s not about trends,” he said.
Val Garland, lead makeup artist for MAC, created glowing faces that complimented the elegant feel of the line. Garland focused on the eye, using black gel eyeliner for a “sleek Fifties” winged feel. “It’s a bit of a cat eye,” said Garland. “There are elements of Audrey Hepburn, but it’s a little more aerodynamic.”Garland used a creamy matte periwinkle shade as a color base on eyelids, layered with a gray metallic on the socket line. Eyebrows were slightly extended to frame the face and a gold shadow was used in the corners of the eye for a highlighting effect. Garland’s “soft look” also included a pigmented matte baby pink lip gloss.
Nails, styled by Wanda Ruiz for CND, were gilded — a combination of two coats of Putty nail polish and a top coat of shimmering Perfectly Bare polish, for a “reflective three-dimensional, holographic effect.”
Etro’s show, titled “The Tree of Life,” was a celebration of the house’s 50th anniversary. “My father founded the company in 1968, which was the year of counterculture and psychedelia. It’s really a show that celebrates that and the paisley design of India and its origin,” said Veronica Etro. #wwdfashion #mfw #ss18 (📷: @delphineachard)
