Oscar de la Renta:
Makeup (Gucci Westman for Revlon): The makeup team had their work cut out for them at this show–there were 49 models who were sporting four different makeup looks. Inspirations? Kate Moss, Faye Dunaway, and gypsies, to name just a few. “There are four different types of girls [in the show]. There’s really no relationship [between them],” Westman said.”There’s a pureness in all the girls, but they didn’t need to tie in, we didn’t have to have a story. I was asking John [Galliano] if he wanted a theme or a thread, but he said no.” One thing he did want? “Weird, sick lip color.” So that’s what he got in the form of a very strange matte coral orange and an almost grey metallic. The gypsy look was meant to look greasy.
Hair (Orlando Pita): Backstage was on full lockdown, so we didn’t get to speak to Pita, but he created five different hair looks, ranging from Kate Moss bedhead to really wet marcel waves for the “gypsies.” He also did some classic ODLR romantic updos using hair ornaments.
Nails (Oscar de la Renta): Two new colors debuted on the runway, which you can snag today. Covet (a rich mulberry) and Asphalt (a shimmery charcoal) appeared on models’ nails, and a third color Dare (teal) rounds out the trio.
