Target’s Bull’s-eye is coming to the Great White Way.
The retailer has partnered with the upcoming play “Truman Capote’s ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s,’” by Tony Award winning playwright Richard Greenberg, to provide the makeup and hair looks for Holly Golightly, a character made famous by Audrey Hepburn in the 1961 film version. Target tapped its beauty partners Sonia Kashuk and Umberto Savone to bring the iconic look of Golightly, who will be played by Emilia Clarke of HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” back to the Forties, the original setting of the novella. The pair worked with the Academy Award winning costume designer Colleen Atwood to retool the beauty look.
“I had to switch decades,” said Kashuk, a makeup artist who sells her namesake cosmetics range exclusively at Target, recalling that her mind immediately veered toward Hepburn as the New York society girl. Kashuk sought to create a “very fresh, elegantly refined, classic face” that focused on highlighting beautiful skin. On the skin, she applied a bit of Perfecting Luminous Foundation mixed with illuminator, and shaped eyes with strong brows and neutral shadows. She smudged a dark hue along the lash line from the Eye on Neutral 12-pan shadow palette — purposely avoiding the winged eye of Hepburn’s Golightly. On the lips, she applied a berry red shade, and lightly contoured cheeks with blush. Kashuk — an avid theatergoer who attends shows two to four times a month — enjoyed the collaboration. “It’s like being part of a band.”

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

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
