Beauty backstage at Vivienne Tam was inspired by punk culture.
Hair, styled by Jeanie Syfu for TRESemmé, was meant to nod to the Eighties New Wave movement in a “modern, feminine” way. Syfu created the updo by first applying TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Mousse through the roots and blowing dry with a Mason Pearson brush, pulling hair back gently to create a flat, clean hairline. She then sprayed 24 Hour Body Finishing Spray around the hairline and pulled hair into a ponytail just below the crown. Next, she applied the brand’s Keratin Smooth Serum throughout the ponytail and twisted it upwards, securing with pins along the way. The look was held in place with an elastic at the top and the ends of hair were flat-ironed for a “choppy effect” and left to fall freely in front of the face. "An easy way to achieve faux fringe is by creating a simple top knot and leaving the ends out, swept across the forehead,” said Syfu.
“This gives the illusion of fringe so girls can experiment with bangs without having to pick up scissors." When asked what has been inspiring to her in 2013, Syfu said, "I love the fact that I haven’t picked up a curling iron yet this season.I want to step away from waves and I’m being inspired by sleeker styles. The look is a little disheveled, but it’s more about using a flat iron to create textured styles that are still polished. Where I live in Brooklyn, I'm seeing girls embrace natural texture and straighter styles."
Makeup, done by Maud Laceppe, for MAC, had a “Nineties, sophisticated punk-chic” feel, she said. On skin, Laceppe applied Pro Longwear Concealer Face & Body with a foundation brush and blended it with her fingers until skin looked “perfect.” Eyelids were coated in Pearl and Shell Cream Colour Base with fingers and extended to lips and nose for highlights. Taupe blush was used on cheekbones and blended into the apples of the cheek. Mineralize in Soft and Gentle was applied all over the face and ears as a setting powder.

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.

As one of the most recognizable models in the world, Christy Turlington Burns has an insider’s view of the fashion industry and the allegations of sexual harassment swirling around it. “I can say that harassment and mistreatment have always been widely known and tolerated in the industry. The industry is surrounded by predators who thrive on the constant rejection and loneliness so many of us have experiences at some point in our careers,” Turlington told WWD, along with her suggestions for how the modeling world should protect younger women and men.

24-year-old Jean Prounis is redefining the rules of jewelry. Formerly a studio assistant to Jemima Kirke and a design apprentice at Ghuran, she focuses on handcrafted subtleties and ancient goldsmithing techniques. “There was a really sterile feel in the environment and I wanted to have jewelry with character that shapes how you wear it everyday,” Prounis said. Each piece is hand made in New York, either by Prounis or three other jewelers in the district. #wwdfashion
