Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week NYC Fall ‘10: Herve Leger

Shown beneath the tents at Bryant Park, Herve Leger's sophistication-meets-urban-edge Fall 2010 Collection was beautifully complemented by natural, free-flowing "undone ponytails," styled by Bob Recine for Moroccanoil. He used one product—Luminous Hairspray—to first create texture and then to finish and hold the look in place. Recine said he wanted the simple style to reflect "busy, nonchalant confidence," and to be "really approachable, modern-looking and not so, in a sense, done."

For nails, Angi Wingle for CND aimed for a clean and healthy look. She started with SolarOil to condition and Almond Soothing Creme to protect and heal. For the toes, Wingle applied nude-colored Desert Suede polish, which creates the illusion of not being able to tell where the nail starts. "It's almost like makeup for toes," Wingle said. She finished with Speedey Top Coat and SolarSpeed Spray.

For M.A.C. Cosmetics, Lisa Butler chose to go sophisticated and natural so that the models "look like they've got nothing on their skin," she said. The eyes had a dusting of Dusk eyeshadow for soft definition and the lips popped with Lady Danger lipstick that was applied with sharp, angular edges.
