The beauty look at Badgley Mischka was rouge princess on the run.
“It’s a Viennese princess leaving the ball to meet her Russian boyfriend at the club,” said lead manicurist Deborah Lippmann, founder and creator of her namesake nail-color brand. Nails were long and almond shaped with two coats of Take the A Train, a metallic pewter shade in a “luxe chrome formula” due out this fall. Lippmann then used a glittering canary yellow polish called Glitter And Be Gay to create a half moon at the cuticle.
For the face, Tom Pecheux for MAC Cosmetics sought to create a “chic, elegant and rich” looking girl. He give the skin a satin finish, and added a pale-pink shade on lips and also on cheeks, where he applied the rosy hue quite low. Eyes were bold and gilded. He applied shimmering gold shades, such as Goldmine eye shadow mixed with MAC Pro Eyeliner Mixing Medium on eye lids offset with liner called Fluidline in Blacktrack. “It’s totally Fifties American,” he said of the eye.
For the hair, Peter Gray for Moroccanoil sought to contrast the opulence of the collection. He began by working Moroccanoil Volumizing Mousse at the roots into damp hair. He created a deep diagonal side part and then took two thin strands of hair and twisted and fastened them at the back. In many cases, he applied hair extensions for a bit of femininity and softly trimmed them along the back.

“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.

“Azzedine has been one of the biggest influences in my life. He has always been such a strong, loving, fatherly figure to me. I call him Papa. His designs are indescribably unique, they are pieces of art. He knew how to make the female form look its loveliest. I have so many memories of him; my favorite might be during my first show with him in Paris. He liked me and he wanted to help me get more work. He called all his friends at Kenzo and Comme des Garcons, and asked them to book me. They said, ‘But she can’t walk!’ And he said, ‘but she has such a great ass!' His friendship and support has been the great privilege of my career. I can't imagine life without him. Repose en paix mon Papa.” - @stephanieseymour tells @wwd. #wwdfashion (📷: @steveeichner) #alaia #azzedinealaia
