REVLON’S CATWALK: In a first for the 73-year-old beauty company, Revlon will preview its fall-holiday cosmetics collection during New York Fashion Week. The company has teamed up with budding design duo Christopher Crawford, 25, and Angela Deane, 27, of the fashion label Christopher Deane. In addition to creating the makeup looks for Christopher Deane’s fall collection, Revlon will host the runway show — scheduled to take place Saturday evening at the company’s headquarters. ABC Carpet & Home will outfit the Revlon Penthouse for the occasion. Revlon makeup artists, lead by Frances Hathaway, will use a color palette of deep purples, dusty berry and hunter green — all with metallic accents — to complement Christopher Deane’s “magpie-inspired” collection, which is said to be a modern twist on contemporary themes. Revlon spokesmodel Eva Mendez — in town on a promotional tour for the film “Hitch” — is planning on attending the show, according to a Revlon spokeswoman.
REDKEN TAPS GUIDO: Redken has signed fashion hairstylist Guido Palau to promote their hairstyling products to the media, as well as during fashion week. Palau regularly works with photographers such as Steven Meisel for editorial work seen in beauty magazines such as Allure and Harper’s Bazaar, and in ad campaigns for designers Prada, Louis Vuitton, Calvin Klein and Jil Sander. A media conference will be held in the fall after spring 2006 Fashion Week to recap the season’s hairstyling trends and what Redken products can help achieve those styles.
BACKSTAGE BEAUTY GETS HIP: Aveda’s hair and makeup teams will be sporting custom-designed T-shirts backstage during New York Fashion Week. Created by London’s Keanan Duffty, the hand-dyed, 100 percent organic cotton shirts blend rock star-turned-designer with eco-chic beauty and feature a hand-sewn Aveda flower appliqué.
HIGH AND DRY: Kerastase has expanded its exclusive Nutrasculpt line with two new stockkeeping units that aim to style hair in need of a shine boost. There’s Vinyle, a shine crème with flexible hold meant for dry, short-to-medium length hair. The water-based formula isn’t sticky and can be applied throughout the day, said Amber Miller, national education manager for Kerastase. Nacre is a treatment shine wax for short-to-medium styles meant for piecing and sculpting. The crème wax has a mother-of-pearl shine, meant for dry hair, said Christine Banks, Kerastase marketing director. Vinyle and Nacre launch nationwide Feb. 15 in salons where Kerastase is sold and will retail for $29 each.EIJI OPENING: Hairstylist Eiji Yamane, who has worked with fashion designer Zang Toi to create hairstyles for the designer’s runway shows for eight years, opened Eiji, a new New York salon, last week. An opening bash was held Tuesday evening. The stylist’s new 4,500-square-foot space, on the fifth floor of 601 Madison Avenue, near 57th Street, features 31 styling chairs and offers cutting, coloring, pedicure and manicure services. A dim, candlelit alcove off the salon’s main floor is designed to be calming for customers receiving shampoo, deep conditioning and massage treatments. The space was designed by Koichi Hara. Yamane, who simply goes by Eiji (pronounced a-gee), sold his former, 14-chair salon at Madison Avenue and 66th Street after 10 years there. He acknowledged his new digs could bring in first-year sales of between $1 million and $2 million and eventually boast 50 staffers.

For the holidays, @Burberry partnered with 20-year-old artist @blondeymccoy on a series of three outdoor murals in downtown Manhattan. The murals are McCoy’s interpretation of a Christmas eve party, the idea of charity and the spirit of family. His third mural, pictured here, is the most personal. The image depicts McCoy’s grandparents and father in London’s Trafalgar Square in the Seventies. “My work often features lots of sentimental objects.” #wwdeye

The @dior-sponsored @guggenheim international gala pre-party has a history of drawing cool-girl musical acts to serenade the crowd –– and last night was no exception. @haimtheband performed songs both new and old, and lured a star-studded audience with the likes of Rebecca Hall, Kate Mara, Mamoudou Athie and more. #wwdeye (📷: @lexieblacklock)
In a partnership between the @metopera and the @englishnationalopera, “Marnie” was born. The opera, with costumes sponsored by @mrporterlive, is an adaptation of the 1961 thriller by Winston Graham. Arianne Phillips, who created the costumes, is no rookie: She’s styled Madonna for her tours and created costumes for a myriad of films in the past. Read WWD’s interview with Phillips, where she talks about her inspiration for the opera’s costumes on WWD.com #wwdfashion
@barneysnyc took a different approach to their holiday windows this year. Instead of Christmas decor, Barneys tapped @thehaasbrothers to tell a story of positivity, gratitude and inclusivity via heartwarming silliness and humor. “It’s about kids and it’s about coming together and being family and loving each other,” said Simon Haas. #wwdfashion (📷: @joshuascottphoto)
