With a diverse group of models, Diane von Furstenberg was all about expressing the girl as an individual. Lead makeup artist for MAC Cosmetics, James Kaliardos, created inner beauty, from the inside out. “It’s about taking the makeup back,” said Kaliardos, “but emphasizing everything at the same time.” To achieve the fresh-faced facade, he used an array of sheer shades to work with each skin tone. The face was layered with Charged Water Face & Body Lotion, Mineralized Charged Water Eye Creme and BB Creme to showcase a hydrated canvas. Then, he used Face and Body Foundation to add warmth to the cheeks and hairline. Prep + Primer Translucent Powder was then added to the center of the face and he dabbed Casual Color in Keep It Loose at the top of the cheekbone and temple. “Everything is creamy so we can let the skin shine through,” said Kaliardos. The eyes were kept mostly bare, but had a little black eyeliner drawn on the lash bed and eyelashes were curled up with Haute and Naughty Too Black Mascara. “It’s not about an eye or a lip, its just sort of an overall polishing,” he said. “Peachy pink [tones] are used on the lighter girls and a taupe shade is used for the deeper skinned girls.” Lips were topped with Mineralized Lip Glass in Lovingly Yours on top and a wash of BB Creme was applied on the bottom. “We wanted them to look like they just got back from vacation,” said Kaliardos, “when you feel great, healthy and full of vitamin D.”
Orlando Pita, working with Biosilk, left the hair down with a middle part and created S waves by going over and under with a curling iron throughout. Depending on the hair type, different products were used for each girl. He used the Volumizing Therapy Medium Hold Style Foam and Spray if the model’s hair required a little body. Pita used the Volumizing Therapy Texturizing Powder if the hair needed added texture. To finish, he applied Biosilk Serum on all the models. “Diane was inspired by the girls who came into the fitting,” said Pita. “No part, with clean, fresh, healthy hair.”
According to the specific skin tone of each girl, Michelle Saunders, working with Essie, used Allure on fair skin and Mademoiselle on dark skin. “We’re going to make an effort to highlight each person’s skin tone with either color,” said Saunders. "It’s a sheer, fresh manicure."

“It’s life, I’m going to face it,” @mingxi11 sighed. “I fell, but you know, I think the most important thing is that I get back up. I had the love, the help from my sister — the girl next to me Gizele [Oliveira] — she’s so nice. When I went backstage everybody was trying to comfort me like ‘Oh Ming, it’s OK.’ I’m really, really touched. I think it’s them who gave me the courage to go back on stage for the finale,” Xi told WWD of her fall at the @victoriassecret fashion show.

“You know, I think audiences expect a certain performance so I have to deliver to them what they’re expecting to a certain degree.

“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.
