The Tracy Reese girl may have just come home from the night before, but she by no means is a mess.
“She’s been out all night, not necessarily drunk,” said Mally Roncal describing the look for Sunday’s show. “She could have been working the night shift or she could have been out with her girlfriends, she’s just been out.” Beginning with the foundation, Roncal looked to keep the skin natural or what she called “artfully undone.” Using Mally Beauty French Kiss on the lips, she applied it to the models first thing and let it set as they were getting prepared for the show. Before they went to change, Roncal quickly took it off and didn’t touch it up before the show. Next, she created the makeup’s key element. “The eyes are very, very smoky black,” said Roncal. “Solid, opaque and very matte.” After applying Mally Beauty Soho Smoky Eye Kit, she used a naked mascara wand and bended it to each girl’s specific eye shape. Then, she dipped it in the cream eyeliner and added a smudge to the corner of the model’s eye.
Jeanie Syfu for TRESemmé followed suit in terms of inspiration. “The hair is a little undone,” said Syfu, “but polished. We wanted it to have a bed-heady feel.” She began by dampening the hair and applying Thermal Creations Volumizing Mousse throughout the roots to provide texture and volume. Next, the hair was flipped and rough dried with her fingers. The hair was then flipped back over and was styled to create a front sweep by brushing the hair from the front of the crown over to own side diagonally. Teasing the crown of the head for a lift, she finished it off with 24 Hour Body Finishing Spray and pulled out pieces for a wispy, undone soft finish. “It’s casual,” said Syfu, “not overthought.”
Using Sally Hansen products, Tracylee fashioned a harsh, yet feminine nail look. First, she applied a coat of Wedding Glitter. Keeping an outline of the gold shade, she layered it with New Wave Blue to appear as if the nail has a border.
London’s newly opened @designmuseum will look back on the life and work of Azzedine Alaïa in a show that the designer helped to curate before he died of heart failure last month. The retrospective, which Alaïa had worked on with Mark Wilson, chief curator of the @groningermuseum, will look at the impact of his work worldwide. The show, “Azzedine Alaïa: The Couturier,” will run from May 10 to October 7. Read more about the exhibit on WWD.com #wwdnews #wwdfashion (📷: @zefashioninsider)
@Pharrell and his wife Helen Lasichanh were among the stars that came out to celebrate @rimowa’s first pop-up concept shop. The space, which is located on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills, draws inspiration from airport luggage carousels and lounge areas – and features the company’s luggage and accessories. If the pop-up is successful it could pave the way for addition temporary shops throughout the world. #wwdfashion (📷: Owen Kolasinski/BFA)
@carineroitfeld celebrated @crfashionbook’s first calendar last night with a dinner party at Spring Place in Manhattan. Photographed by @stevenkleinstudio, the calendar takes on a fitness theme and features @joansmalls, @gigihadid, @danielle_herrington_ – pictured here – and more. “[Carine Roitfeld] wanted me to feel sexy and she wanted me to be myself and feel it out on my own and do what I felt was right,” said Herrington, aka Miss October. #wwdeye
@saintrecords and @virgilabloh last night at @americanexpress’ “A Night With Success Makers” event. “I always bring it back to community because without that I wouldn’t have the courage,” said Knowles when asked how she has gotten where she is now.

This Just In: Industry sources have told WWD that Anastasia Soare is rumored to be considering selling her beauty business, @anastasiabeverlyhills. According to those sources, Soare has tapped investment bank Imperial Capital to explore sale options for her eponymous beauty brand –– and with at least $340 million in net sales, this would be a big deal. Put in context of other recent transactions for makeup companies, Soare’s price tag could be in the billions if she were to sell the whole thing. #wwdnews #wwdbeauty (📷: @clint_spaulding)

@google released its report on the most popular search terms this year. For fashion brands, the list was led by @gucci, the luxury brand that stunned the market last October when it pledged to stop using fur.

In yet another fashion show shuffle, @elleryland is moving its show in sync with the Paris couture calendar — though the brand is still keeping one foot on the city’s ready-to-wear schedule. Their runway show in January will coincide with the launch of a new strategy: designing two main collections each year instead of four, which will then be released in four drops. “As we all know, the system needs to change. We need to show sooner to give time back to artisans and designers to do what they do best — create,” said founder Kym Ellery. #wwdnews #wwdfashion (📷: @kukukuba)
@maxmara’s classic 101801 coat was the cornerstone of its pre-fall 2018 collection. The design team expanded the traditional double-breasted, kimono-sleeved style into a trapeze coat, lean belted styles and a peacoat and presented them in monochromatic looks – like the camel one pictured here. #wwdfashion #prefall18 (📷: George Chinsee)
