Sara Sampaio went for dramatic eyes and nude lips for the Glamour Women of the Year Awards last night, a great nighttime beauty look. Sequins were also a popular choice among the fashionistas on the red carpet.
Today in models speaking out: Edie Campbell penned an open letter to WWD, questioning the fashion community’s response to sexual abuse in the industry. As the New York Times has also pointed out, is the problem really limited to just one photographer, Terry Richardson? Really? Campbell also brings up the issue of male models who have suffered abuse – something we hear much less about. Definitely worth a read – and worth considering if victims can start naming names, as has happened in almost every other creative industry now, without fear of getting blacklisted.
Here’s a throwback Thursday pic of Campbell in 2013 after she closed the Louis Vuitton show covered in Stephen Sprouse-style body paint. If I remember correctly, she actually flew back to London immediately after the show still covered in body paint.
You can always tell when models appreciate the runway makeup because, like Mali Koopman after the Jason Wu show, they leave it on when leaving the show instead of taking it off for the next one. A nude face and red lip are a good bet for summer beauty: simple but sophisticated.
Tina Leung wore a great combination of a Raf Simons puffer over a Courreges black and white jacket to Paris couture week. Her hair and makeup are Dior.
Victoria’s Secret model Maria Borges exited the Armani Privé show in Paris in subtle but colorful runway makeup, shell choker, and the natural hairstyle that has become her trademark. Not only a strong beauty statement, but perfect for summer.
Hannah Bronfman entered the Giorgio Armani show in Paris in a plunging white silk dress with a leather jacket thrown over her shoulders – a great transitional look as summer goes into fall. Also love that although she is quickly becoming a beauty icon, she keeps her look very natural.
One of the biggest trends at Coachella 2016 was not a particular piece of clothing but the fact that friends are coordinating their outfits. Sisters Valentina and Chiara Ferragni wore a crochet and lace dress respectively, and Valentina’s pearl applique went well with Chiara’s tiara. The two star bloggers know a thing or two about how social media influences women’s sartorial choices. Girls can get dressed “together” for an event even if they are miles apart.
A familiar face in the crowd, Rumi Neely, was one of several chic concert goers to opt for all white. It’s not the most practical shade for a festival, but it’s great if you’re just going to emerge from the VIP area.
A pretty look in a black and white romper on model Anastasia Chekry, still in hair and makeup from the Ulyana Sergeenko couture runway.
Despite her racy Alexander Wang ads, model Anna Ewers is actually a little bit shy in real life. We got one shot of her as she stepped into a car outside the Chanel show. The gorgeous cat-eye makeup was a hit – and perfect for the Parisian “Brasserie Gabrielle” theme of the show.
Little did we know when we spotted new model Binx Walton after the Chanel fall ready-to-wear show in Paris that she would be part of the label’s fall ad campaign as shot by Karl Lagerfeld. She layered an oversize black sweater with a silver padlock necklace and a sheer purple maxi skirt and mid-calf boots – a look that went well with the hair and makeup from the Chanel show. Close-up, after the jump. (more…)
Olivia Palermo looked beautiful as usual at the Dior Cruise show on Wednesday. A Spanish style fringed bolero jacket is a great topper for evening over a sheer white top, but Olivia added a little edge to the outfit with a black leather skirt with a slit up one side.
Like a certain other street style photographer at the New York Times, I am loving the pretty pastel pinks that are appearing like early signs of spring. Outside the Hermès show in Paris, a guest wore a pink cotton shirtdress wrapped with a pink wrap belt and accessorized with a matching pale pink bag and shoes. Beauty notes add the finishing touch: deep pink stained lips and lime green nails and toes. Detail shots after the jump. (more…)
