The rally cry backstage at Helmut Lang was, “Girls are coming from Rag and Bone with black eyeliner! Be ready to get it off!” That pretty much sums it up: Everything was kept bare (or made to look bare) for a decidedly minimalist look.
Hair (Paul Hanlon): Hanlon was too busy getting all the storm-delayed models ready for the show to walk us through the look, but it was your classic bedhead. Models walked around with braids in, which were then artfully undone, brushed and mussed. The late comers got a sort of crimp with a curling iron.
Makeup (Hannah Murray for NARS): Murray wanted “boyish beauty,” accented by strong and defined masculine brows (using a new NARS brow wax product which will hit stores soon). The look was monochromatic, with creamy skin and lustrous eye color which was achieved by using lip gloss on the eye.
Nails (Essie): The look was matte stone, using Essie’s St.Tropez and a matte top coat.
