All eyes were on, well, the eyes at Jason Wu — where Diane Kendal, working with Lancôme, made gleaming gold eyelids the center of attention.
“This season, Jason’s clothes are very fluid,” said Kendal. “This was a way to give a sense of fluidity, with glitter catching the lights on the runway.”
After prepping the skin with Lancôme’s DreamTone Skin Correcting Serum, Kendal used Teint Visionnaire Skin Correcting Duo and Effacernes Waterproof Protective Undereye Concealer to create a perfect canvas. Next, Kendal turned to the color collection she and the designer devised, which is now on counter. Color Design Eye Brightener All-in-One 5 Shadow & Liner Palette in Bronze Amour was first swept across the eyelids, and next Kendal curled eyelashes and added Hypnôse Star Mascara to lashes. Jason Wu for Lancôme Artliner in Noir rimmed the eyes, and Kendal finished the look with a healthy application of rose-gold glitter in the center of eyelids. Cheeks got a light dusting of Blush Subtil in Cedar Rose, while Kendal finished with clear lip balm. Nails also got a coat of clear Lancôme polish.
Odile Gilbert, working with Kérastase at the show, parted hair in the middle and used a flatiron and Kérastase Gloss Appeal Shine Spray, adding long hairpieces to the models’ heads and cutting them bluntly at the bottom. Next, she used the brand’s Short Mania pomade to slick hair to the scalp. Gilbert then used Laque Couture Hair Spray to hold things in place and finished the look with a gold barrette.

“I just wanted to create this fully rounded character, but I do think what excited me most was just the opportunity to give a group of people representation that I feel needs it. I like to do characters in projects that stand for something and Karolina definitely does, so that was really exciting to me,” @ginnygardner says of her new role in @hulu’s “The Runaways.” Gardner plays Karolina Dean, a queer superhero, which is a rarity for @marvel.

“Azzedine has been one of the biggest influences in my life. He has always been such a strong, loving, fatherly figure to me. I call him Papa. His designs are indescribably unique, they are pieces of art. He knew how to make the female form look its loveliest. I have so many memories of him; my favorite might be during my first show with him in Paris. He liked me and he wanted to help me get more work. He called all his friends at Kenzo and Comme des Garcons, and asked them to book me. They said, ‘But she can’t walk!’ And he said, ‘but she has such a great ass!' His friendship and support has been the great privilege of my career. I can't imagine life without him. Repose en paix mon Papa.” - @stephanieseymour tells @wwd. #wwdfashion (📷: @steveeichner) #alaia #azzedinealaia

He designed Seymour’s dress for her 1995 wedding to Peter Brant, and treated Campbell (who famously called him Papa), like a daughter. For more on the legendary designer, tap the link in bio. #wwdfashion #alaia #azzedinealaia
