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.”
“I was touched by the fact that she lost her father, really before his time, and it was a real shock. She had two young children, she was married and she was expecting that she would have her own life for a good 25 years,” said Claire Foy about playing a young Queen Elizabeth in Netflix’s The Crown.

“It transcends the genre that is you think of a sci-fi show — you don’t expect it to be so profound or emotionally riveting,” Evan Rachel Wood told WWD of her Emmy nominated role in Westworld. styled by @samanthamcmillen_stylist 📸 @emmanmontalvan #emmys2017 #wwdeye
