Inspired by the lavish, intellectual salons of seventeenth-century Paris, Talia Shobrook, lead makeup artist for Laura Mercier, fashioned a woman who exudes subtle confidence for Jenny Packham’s show. “I wanted to capture the purity, the richness and the opulence of the collection,” said Shobrook. The key element of the look revolved around the skin. Shobrook created a dewy texture by using Foundation Primer in Radiance.
Instead of using blush, she applied Crème Smooth Lip Colour in Pink Blush. Next, Shobrook used Eye Basics in Tawny along the lash line. Then, she applied Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Seashell on the inner and outer corners of the eyes. After adding Luster Eye Colour in Bamboo under the bottom lash line, Shobrook topped it off with Faux Lash Mascara in Sierra Brown. To create a feminine lip, she applied Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Seashell onto the lip’s cupid bow and finished with a dab of Crème Smooth Lip Colour in Pink Blush. To complement the makeup, Jeanie Syfu for TRESemmé toned down the hair, keeping it elegant and modern.
“With all the beading and the crystals in the collection, we just really wanted to downplay the hair and makeup,” said Syfu. “Just to keep it young and modern and approachable.” Syfu worked 24 Hour Body Blow Dry Lotion through the roots and midlengths. Then she sprayed Platinum Strength Strengthening Heat Protect Spray on the ends to achieve the look of healthy hair. Syfu blow-dried the hair to give a straight finish. After parting it down the middle, she separated the hair across the back of the head from ear to ear. Syfu then pulled into a low ponytail and left a few strands loose in the front. To finish, she secured it with an elastic and a satin ribbon.
Gina Edwards completed the nail look using Essie’s Set in Stones. She began by painting the nail in the middle and working her way up so that the glitter had a cascading effect.

It was about pieces you’d create and keep forever, things that have a permanence to it,” designer Erdem Moralioglu said. #wwdeye (📷: Katie Jones)

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.

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.
