MILAN — "Aquatic goddesses — innocent but not naive," hairstylist Guido Palau said about the hairstyle that complimented the fluid dresses in Alberta Ferretti's spring 2013 collection.
To achieve a wet, sea-tangled look, Palau, using Redken products, applied Guts 10 Volume Spray Foam into water-dampened hair. Clips were slipped into the crown to maximize the wind-swept volumes and to keep hair off the face. Naturally-dried hair was slicked with Shine Flash 02 Glistening Mist to hold the glossy, wet shine.
Makeup artist Diane Kendal, using MAC Cosmetics, started with a Prep + Prime Skin Smoother. Grease eye shadow was blended towards the brow in soft, smoky strokes. A yellowy-golden trail was dusted across the lids and shimmered underneath the eyes with Pigment in Golden Lemon. Brows were lightly accented with brown powder to continue the diaphanous, wet look.
On nails, Keri Blair, senior artist with the MAC Pro Team North America, created a custom-made lacquer. The color, painted onto roundly-filed nails, was a mixture of Pigment in Pink Opal and clear nail polish to evoke an "iridescent, mother of pearl wash, like a sequin or a mermaid tail."

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.
