Melrose versus Rodeo was the theme backstage at Badgley Mischka this season.
“The Rodeo Drive [look] is a bit more va-va-voom, a bit more volume, and the Melrose is a bit cooler, a bit more laid-back,” said Peter Gray, who oversaw hair for Cutler Salon and Redken. For hair, Gray created two looks, both intended to be an “antidote to that L.A. set that you don’t brush out,” he said. He painted gel onto the hair at the root and then rough blow-dried it, with Redken No 7 Mousse through each section for volume. Hair was curled with a 1.25-inch curling iron and set before being thoroughly brushed out. In the end, the Melrose look was “more collapsed” than the Rodeo-inspired look, Gray said. The look was finished with Redken Wind Blown spray for soft texture.
“I feel like the [Emmy] nomination is this absurdly generous bonus to something that I’ve already been excited by for quite some time now,” Darren Criss tells @ktauer about his nomination for his role as Andrew Cunanan in The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story, “My general attitude toward life is I hope for everything but expect nothing. But when you’re playing for the Warriors, there’s a good chance you’ll make it to the championships. And I’m not saying I’m Steph Curry, but when you’re on [showrunner] Ryan Murphy’s team, it seems more palpable than ever,” he continues. (Criss previously starred on “Glee,” another Murphy creation, although they didn’t directly work together.) “I feel like I’ve already won the lottery.” Read more in WWD.com (📸: @lexieblacklock ) #wwdeye #darrencriss #americancrimestory #emmys2018
Ganni turned over a new leaf for spring 2019, reports @fionawsma from Copenhagen Fashion Week. Instead of sending its signature floral-print dresses down the runway, the brand collaborated with 66 North, a technical outerwear brand, and produced a chic-yet-utilitarian offering that included a tie-dye vest and short set, and leopard-print pieces sprinkled among the khaki parkas and bucket hats. #wwdfashion #ganni #copenhagenfashionweek
