Backstage at Marc by Marc Jacobs on Tuesday, makeup artist Dick Page, artistic director for Shiseido, summed up the look with one word: “Pretty.”
“It’s really easy to wear,” he said of the “supersimple” look. “There’s nothing very complicated about it.”
To achieve the look, he first applied a combination of gold and white highlighters under the eyes and on the cheeks, a base he called “supertransparent.” On top of that, he dusted “a little blush” — in one of four rose hues, depending on a particular model’s natural skin tone.
“We want the girls to look happy and healthy,” said Page. “At the end of the day, you don’t know what happened — they just look gorgeous.”
On the eyes and lips, there was “nothing,” said Page, who did acknowledge that if a particular girl’s lips were naturally bright, he used a little bit of foundation and lip balm “to take them down.”
Redken hairstylist Guido Palau, who styled hair at the Marc Jacobs and Marc by Marc Jacobs fashion shows, said the look of the hair was “similar” at both shows. But whereas some hair was tucked into collars at Marc Jacobs, it was “hair out” at Marc by Marc Jacobs.
Palau gave the Marc by Marc Jacobs girls down ’dos with messy parts in the middle, using Redken’s Fabricate texturizing spray “to bring out the [hair’s] natural texture” and letting the hair air dry. “It’s refreshing to have girls on the runway who look like themselves,” he said. “The impression is she doesn’t care so much — but she does.”
Discussing the inspiration for the look, Palau said, “It’s the essence of the girl who’d wear these clothes. She’s cool. She’s young. She’s a Marc girl.”
“What he has done at Vuitton is really exceptional,” said @gameofthrones’ actress Gwendoline Christie on @mrkimjones’ final show for @louisvuitton. “He has rebooted luxury in terms of making it commercial, viable and contemporary. And most importantly artistic. He has never compromised his artistic vision for the sake of commodity.” (📷: @zefashioninsider)

“And so spending so much time with a character who thinks like that, inevitability you try and analyze yourself and go back and think about your own demons and dark chapters that you had in your life,” says @thedanielbruhl of his role in TNT’s “The Alienist.” The show, set in the Gilded Age of New York, also stars Dakota Fanning and Luke Evans.

According to @laurentsai, former “Terrace House: Aloha State” cast member, she didn’t know she was auditioning for the Japanese version of “Real World.” “I was telling a couple of my friends and someone’s like, ‘That sounds a lot like Terrace House.’ I was like, ’No it can’t be.’” Turns out, it was. But Tsai isn’t just a reality star — she’s an illustrator who has worked with Starbucks Japan and most recently, she’s dipping her toes into the fashion world.
