Lead makeup artist for MAC Cosmetics, Sil Bruinsma began by explaining that when working with Thom Browne, words get thrown around. Specifically for this show, he had to work with clowns, insane and hospital. “Last season was very fairy tale,” said Bruinsma. “This year, we’re going a lot darker.”
He began by creating a matte white canvas using Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15. Then with a thick brush he dusted Setting Powder. For the eyes, he blended a Paint Stick in Black and Chromaline in Marine Ultra and covered the entire eye. To finish, the lips were overdrawn and exaggerated with a blue-based, matte red lip liner. The nurse’s makeup remains the way it was applied, but additionally they will be sporting glasses. But before the patients walk the runway, Bruinsma will smear the eyes and lips to create a literal insane vibe.
Inspired by an insane asylum, Jimmy Paul for Bumble and bumble divided the looks into two sections, nurses and patients. “The look is kind of uniform in its insanity,” said Paul.
The first stop for both characters was Surf Spray, which was applied throughout the hair. Then, it was dried and teased with a comb and sprayed with White Hair Powder. To differentiate the categories, the nurses’ top of the head was flat and the rest was teased and tucked into a white snood hair net. The patient’s hair is teased throughout the front sticking straight up and throughout the back, which was kept in a red snood. Only the girls with short hair are having wigs or extensions applied, for the rest, its all their own.
Applied over the top of latex gloves, fake nails painted with a matte white are being glued to each finger. Using Essie, one coat of Blanc was layered with one coat of Marshmallow. To finish, the nails were coated with Matte About You Top Coat.

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)
