Backstage at Chris Benz, models rocked an updated Nineties beauty look, reminiscent of the Seattle grunge movement.
Hair, styled by John Ruidant for Redken, was a shaggy, unrefined updo infused with braids and texture. Fabricate 03 and Thickening Lotion 06 were used to prep and style strands. “We want her to look like she’s been running in the wild, out camping and outward bound,” said Ruidant. “There’s a looseness about it, nothing is clean or neat.”
Makeup, led by Daniel Martin for Lancôme, was also inspired by the 20th century's final decade. “We wanted to revisit a Nineties brown lip and bring back lip liner, by making it interesting,” said Martin, who shaded pouts with Lancôme brow pencil in Sable and used a bit of gloss atop the warm shade.
New Lancôme product Ombre Magnetique Shadow, a hybrid between a mousse and a cream, was used at the show to create a gunmetal-hued shimmer over eyes.
“This is a rebellious high schooler, experimenting with her look,” said Martin. Brows were filled in and cheeks were contoured with a light brown, shimmery shade for warmth and dimension.

Spotted last night at the @erdem x @hm launch event: Kate Bosworth, Rashida Jones, Kirsten Dunst and Selma Blair. The party, which took place in LA, also marked the opening of their pop-up shop. “I was interested in creating a collection that wasn’t in any way disposable. It was about pieces you’d create and keep forever, things that have a permanence to it,” designer Erdem Moralioglu said. #wwdeye (📷: Katie Jones)
Renee Zellweger in yellow in 2001 and again in 2017. Chosen as one of the 12 @pantone Leading Spring Colors (and dubbed “Meadowlark”), it only makes sense that the bright hue stands the test of time and is making a resurgence this season, seen already on stars like @blakelively and @gigihadid.
