LONDON — For MAC makeup artist Hannah Murray, the Moschino Cheap & Chic makeup was all about punk. “The girl this season has more attitude than last season; she's tough she's cool, she's punky, so we wanted bold black PVC accents,” she explained.
One look was built on fresh, luminous skin and a chalky pink cheek tying in with the colors of the collection. Eyes were bare. A black lip was created using Kohl Power pencil in Feline and Black Lipmix.
The second look was the reverse with the drama played out in the eyes, which were rounded into an almond shape with a clean line. “I used the Graphblack Pencil to sketch the shape and went over it with Fluidline gel liner in Blacktrack,” Murray explained. She added Lip Glass clear gloss on both eyes and lips.
Hair was in a similar vein. “The reference was punk couture so there's an element of punk albeit a really young youthful version; it's inspired by rock 'n' roll punk mixed with haute couture,” said Sam McKnight.
He wanted the girls to look as if they had done their hair themselves and used black elastics and pins to secure messy knots he created with two layers of Pantene mousse — rough dried to create volume. He finished the look with some soufflé on the ends to take away dryness. Most of the girls had dark hair, but he ran a baby pink shade through the tresses of the three blondes.

“I just wanted to create this fully rounded character, but I do think what excited me most was just the opportunity to give a group of people representation that I feel needs it. I like to do characters in projects that stand for something and Karolina definitely does, so that was really exciting to me,” @ginnygardner says of her new role in @hulu’s “The Runaways.” Gardner plays Karolina Dean, a queer superhero, which is a rarity for @marvel.

“Azzedine has been one of the biggest influences in my life. He has always been such a strong, loving, fatherly figure to me. I call him Papa. His designs are indescribably unique, they are pieces of art. He knew how to make the female form look its loveliest. I have so many memories of him; my favorite might be during my first show with him in Paris. He liked me and he wanted to help me get more work. He called all his friends at Kenzo and Comme des Garcons, and asked them to book me. They said, ‘But she can’t walk!’ And he said, ‘but she has such a great ass!' His friendship and support has been the great privilege of my career. I can't imagine life without him. Repose en paix mon Papa.” - @stephanieseymour tells @wwd. #wwdfashion (📷: @steveeichner) #alaia #azzedinealaia
