Makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury for MAC Cosmetics created an “Avatar”-inspired warrior princess look, with a dramatically contoured face. She applied a light brown shadow across the eyelid, pulling the color out to the sides for an almost feline effect. Shadow also ran down the length of the nose. Cheek bones were contoured with brown tones as well, and amplified with shimmering white highlighter under the eye and in the inner corners of the eyes. She brushed brows with clear gel and applied brown mascara in the shade Burnt Umber on the top lashes. Lips were bare.
Hairstylist Peter Gray for Redken continued the theme, creating two distinct hair styles for the show, as the designers showed both gowns and their diffusion line Mark & James. Gray described the first style as a princess look. A panel of hair was tightly pulled back on both sides and the top was kept loose with some height. The strands were then twisted in a rope design at the back of the head. To create the look, he misted Layer Lift 07 into the hair to give it a base [the key to prepping hair for multiple styles, said Gray] which he worked through using a blow-dryer. He also applied self-adhesive hair extension down the back of the hair. For the second look, referred to as “warrior princess,” the updo was let loose, and stylists worked feverishly to straighten the long strains, leaving the front of the hair as is. “The tension of the hair at sides of the face give a nice eye lift,” said Gray.
Nails were equally strong and futuristic, painted in Marquee Moon from Deborah Lippmann collection. Manicurist Deborah Lippmann described the color as “futuristic, sequins silver,” as there were tiny silver sequins embedded in the sparkling formula.
“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)

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.
