I love Fashion Week. Truth be told, I’ve never attended a show, but the bombardment of innovated style and beauty on the web and in magazines always leaves me wanting more. One of my favorites at Fashion Week is always Marc Jacobs. Marc is a little over the top, but never boring! He keeps things interesting and playful, and his Spring 2010 Marc by Marc Jacobs show was no different.
Jacob’s show was a bit Desperately Seeking Susan, with models wearing oversized bows in their hair, a la Madonna in the ’80′s flick. Hairstylist Guido raked mousse through the models’ hair for volume and texture, blew it dry, then did some major teasing before twisting it all up in to a messy French twist. To finish it off, he wrapped the hair with one of the giant hair bows Marc created for the show.
Dick Page did the makeup for Marc’s springs how, and describes it as “poster paint.” “Everything is bare except for the bright fuchsia lip that’s fake-looking and a bit heavy.” For an extra-rich, matte effect, he patted fuchsia blush over the lipstick and dusted it with translucent powder. The look was about flawless skin, bare eyes, defined brows, and of course, bright lips.
I love the look they chose for this show. The makeup is gorgeous, minimal and yet, high impact. Ladies, are you brave enough to go there?
