It was all about a deep side part and wine-colored eyes backstage at BCBG Max Azria.
Of the hair, Laurent Philippon, for Bumble and bumble, said “It’s a very cool New Yorker, she doesn’t need to make much effort to look cool and stylish. I like to say it’s somewhere between François Hardy and Patti Smith. The hair is swept over the forehead, it has a feeling as if she’s taken the wind. She’s windswept. It’s across the face, one side is tucked behind the ear, the other is tucked under the hair in the back.”
To hold the style in place Philippon created a “little braid” at the neck. “We’re not seeing the braid but it’s really to hold the hair in a loose way over the face.” He then texturized the hair on a “case-by-case” basis, depending on the model, with curling irons and Bumble and bumble Prep for “separation and texture.” Bumble and bumble’s hybrid dry shampoo/finishing spray Dryspun completed the look. “It feels really real like a girl would have done it herself. It’s not a hairdresser hairstyle. That’s what I love [about] it,” Philippon said.
The overall attitude is “rock ’n’ roll, she’s creative, very sure of herself and once again she doesn’t have to do much effort to look amazing.”
Val Garland, for MAC, focused on the eyes with Vino lip liner, which she applied on the crease and blended into the socket with a brush. She then used a berry-hued eye-shadow shade called Organic to deepen the color and continued blending it into the crease. Brows were tidied up with MAC Brow Set in Clear. Faces were given a sheer layer of MAC Face and Body Foundation and a slight highlight on cheekbones, lips and the cupid’s bow. Lips were made matte with Mixing Medium.
"It's all about the wash of raisin color on the eye," said Garland. "It's a little bit androgynous, it's boyish and sort of tough chic. It’s just the girls being very real."

Spotted last night at the @erdem x @hm launch event: Kate Bosworth, Rashida Jones, Kirsten Dunst and Selma Blair. The party, which took place in LA, also marked the opening of their pop-up shop. “I was interested in creating a collection that wasn’t in any way disposable. It was about pieces you’d create and keep forever, things that have a permanence to it,” designer Erdem Moralioglu said. #wwdeye (📷: Katie Jones)
Renee Zellweger in yellow in 2001 and again in 2017. Chosen as one of the 12 @pantone Leading Spring Colors (and dubbed “Meadowlark”), it only makes sense that the bright hue stands the test of time and is making a resurgence this season, seen already on stars like @blakelively and @gigihadid.

As one of the most recognizable models in the world, Christy Turlington Burns has an insider’s view of the fashion industry and the allegations of sexual harassment swirling around it. “I can say that harassment and mistreatment have always been widely known and tolerated in the industry. The industry is surrounded by predators who thrive on the constant rejection and loneliness so many of us have experiences at some point in our careers,” Turlington told WWD, along with her suggestions for how the modeling world should protect younger women and men.

24-year-old Jean Prounis is redefining the rules of jewelry. Formerly a studio assistant to Jemima Kirke and a design apprentice at Ghuran, she focuses on handcrafted subtleties and ancient goldsmithing techniques. “There was a really sterile feel in the environment and I wanted to have jewelry with character that shapes how you wear it everyday,” Prounis said. Each piece is hand made in New York, either by Prounis or three other jewelers in the district. #wwdfashion
