Mercedes-Benz Fall/Winter 2014 Fashion Week: Jeremy Scott
For Jeremy Scott’s collection, hair lead Eugene Souleiman for Wella Professionals came up with a “just out of the shower” look—but didn’t use water because it would damage the leather clothing. Instead, he called on Wella Professionals Extra Volume Styling Mousse, combing hair back with the product. “We’re literally combing hair back as if you just got out of the shower,” he says.
Makeup was led by Kabuki, who used Mac products such as Coffee Eye Pencil, Taupe Blush and Optimistic Orange Blush Cream. “A witty take on athletic apparel is the direction of this season’s collection,” Kabuki says. “We though that a natural-looking makeup would be the most appropriate as well as an unexpected twist for a Jeremy Scott show.”
Patricia Yankee went with clear polish on fingernails with a hint of pink/red, and for toes, she alternated between white, bold pink/red and blue colors.
