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.
Taking the final spot on the mens’ portion of New York Fashion Week calendar next month will be none other than @tomford. Though he’s shown his men’s wear in New York in the past, this will mark the first time the designer has shown his men’s collection alone during New York Fashion Week: Men’s. His runway show will debut on February 6 at the Park Avenue Armory. #wwdfashion
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)
