I'D LIKE TO THANK Where Inspiration came from this season
From bright blue eye shadow to out-to-there hair, runway beauty trends for spring 2004 are anything but boring.MAKEUP
“Brazil.” — Mary Greenwell at Paul Smith “Jean Shrimpton in a Russ Meyer movie — ‘Faster Pussycat Kill Kill.’” — Val Garland for MAC at DSquared “Marlene Dietrich.” — Pat McGrath at Christian Dior “A shipwrecked Victorian maiden.” — Jeanine Lobell for Stila at Nicole Miller “A woman who’s been on the road for awhile.” —?Tom Pécheux for MAC at DKNYHAIR
“Native American thick hair.” —?Eugene Souleiman at Donna Karan “Marilyn Monroe and Anna Magnani.” — Guido Palau at Prada “Jerry Hall in the late Seventies.” —?Guido Palau at Versace “Chrissie Hynde and Marianne Faithfull.” — Sam McKnight at Elspeth Gibson “Alfred Hitchcock and Grace Kelly.” — Orlando Pita at Oscar de la Renta “The Thirties.” — Orlando Pita at Carolina Herrera “Chic preppy girls.” —?Jimmy Paul for Bumble and bumble at Bill Blass
The Blue Period: From cobalt smoky eyes to bright blue mascara to eye shadow swept across the face in a masklike pattern, makeup artists are eyeing all shades of blue for spring.
In the Pink: Whether a petal pink or an in-your-face fuchsia, pink in all forms proved to be spring’s favorite lip color.
You Glow, Girl: The eyes, the cheeks, the lips, even the collarbones had one thing in common — they glowed. From Pat McGrath’s shimmery pink collarbones at Donna Karan to Charlotte Tilbury’s gold cheekbone highlights at Calvin Klein, shine was fine this season.
Skin Deep: Don’t have perfect skin? Invest in the best concealer you can find. Perfect skin with a hint of a tan was ubiquitous, often set off by a toffee or chocolate-shaded eye.Looking Up: Updos continued to roam the runways, with one, well, twist: these looks were far from perfect. Messy buns, destroyed chignons, bad-girl braids — the point was to show that the girl isn’t a prude.
Sleeping In: The bedhead look was front and center this season, with celebrities ranging from Marilyn Monroe to Marianne Faithfull to Jerry Hall serving as muses.
Just Teasin’: Throw out the flat iron: when it comes to hair, stylists are turning up the volume — in many cases, by dampening hair, braiding it, drying it and unbraiding it, creating luxuriant waves and texture.

New York-based DJ @harleyvnewton threw a party to celebrate the holiday collection of her dress and pajama line @hvn at the Ladurée Beverly Hills.

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
For spring 2018, designers applied bold colors and cartoonish motifs on everything from sneakers and belts to key chains. See all the top men’s accessories trends on WWD.com. #wwdtrends (📷: George Chinsee; Prop Styling by @rnasti; Market Editor: @luiscampuzano)
The @dior-sponsored @guggenheim international gala pre-party has a history of drawing cool-girl musical acts to serenade the crowd –– and last night was no exception. @haimtheband performed songs both new and old, and lured a star-studded audience with the likes of Rebecca Hall, Kate Mara, Mamoudou Athie and more. #wwdeye (📷: @lexieblacklock)
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
@barneysnyc took a different approach to their holiday windows this year. Instead of Christmas decor, Barneys tapped @thehaasbrothers to tell a story of positivity, gratitude and inclusivity via heartwarming silliness and humor. “It’s about kids and it’s about coming together and being family and loving each other,” said Simon Haas. #wwdfashion (📷: @joshuascottphoto)
Beauty influencer @kandeejohnson makes her foray into hair care with a collaboration with @ogx_beauty — making it the first time that OGX has teamed up for a product creation. The collab includes shampoos and conditioners in three scents. At 39 and a mom, Johnson is a different profile than the emerging social media stars, but is considered one of the pioneers of the digital beauty influencer world.
