Fashion Week: Hair, Makeup & Styling Roundup

I just left Milk Studios, wrapping up my week. So much goes into producing a catwalk or presentation: model casting, styling, fittings, makeup artists, hair stylists, not to mention budget and politics. This Fashion Week, I made a conscious effort to examine all the little details that the talented individuals in this industry put their blood, sweat, and tears into, the things that make this week so inspiring. Some takeaways to work into your look or merely appreciate for their creativity:

  1. Drawn-on tattoos on arms and legs at Rodarte and Catherine Malandrino.

  2. One-brushstroke smoky eyes at Kimberly Ovitz.

  3. Neon yellow nails, denim strips wrapped around half-up hairstyles, and sock ankle cuffs at Rag & Bone.

  4. Huge black tulle bows around side ponytails at Milly.

  5. Exotic leaf hair pieces, crimped hair, and pink eye shadow at DVF.

  6. A single metal-mesh earring (practically grazing the shoulder) at Jill Stuart. Single earring also seen at Vena Cava and Zero + Maria Cornejo.

  7. Hands adorned with tons of gold rings at Brian Reyes.

  8. Creative styling from N.Y.'s finest! The details brought the clothing to life and gave the audience a depiction of the girl the designer is designing for.

I'm going to start putting some of these into play immediately!
