Mercedes-Benz Fall/Winter 2014 Fashion Week: Vera Wang
For Vera Wang’s elegant collection, Jimmy Paul for Bumble and bumble says he contrasted the dressed-up feel with a natural, undone hairstyle. “It’s very New York girl,” he says. “The clothes are very dressed up, so it was about taking the hair down. But the undone-ness is very considered.” For the look, he created a deep side part and worked City Swept Finish Spray into hair for texture.
Cle de Peau Beaute Makeup Creative Director Lucia Pieroni also went the natural route, using Eye Color Quad in Silver Eclipse, and on lips Just Joey. For the face, she used Luminizing Face Enhancer in Delicate Pink. “The makeup is naturally refined, with a strong luminosity that offsets the darkness of the Hamlet-inspired collection,” she says.
Nails were by Jin Soon Choi, who called on JinSoon Power Coat, Mica and Top Gloss for a shimmery metallic.
