Beauty was graphic and strong backstage at Chado Ralph Rucci.
The dramatic, aerodynamic updo, created by Laurent Philippon, for Bumble and bumble, was meant to resemble “architecture” and “sculpture.” To create the style, Philippon began by blowing out hair with a “ponytail blow dry.” He then sectioned hair into two parts, divided horizontally, back-combed and sprayed heavily with Bumble and bumble Does It All. The bottom was then secured with a bungee and the ponytail was braided about two inches. Pins then secured the braids into a horizontal crown shape, which became the base, or “bridge” of the look. Next, the top section of hair was braided and tucked under itself. To keep things in place and to get an “entirely wet” effect, Philippon used generous amounts of Bumble’s Spray de Mode.

Kane Brown didn’t take the traditional road to country music stardom, writes @jeanpalmieri .
Instead of cutting his teeth in church and dive bars throughout the South, Brown made a splash on Facebook by releasing several covers of country classics — George Strait’s “Check Yes or No” and Lee Brice’s “I Don’t Dance” among them — that soon went viral. “I was working at FedEx and Target and just doing it for fun,” he said of the videos. “I put it on social media and got around 50 likes. Then I woke up one day and saw that it had gone viral overnight.” Read more on WWD.com 📸: @georgechinsee
