The Theme: Inspired by the 1977 film “Powers of Ten,” Rachel Antonoff’s latest collection features an aerial view, a garden party, with landscapes, and the idea of a country club girl gone bad!
The Keys: Keri Blair for MAC Cosmetics, Jenny Balding for Cutler Salon, Candice Manacchio of CND.
The Color Palette: Clear, greys and whites, vibrant red, blues.
The Execution: For makeup, Blair used cream blush to create a flush, while shearing out a blackened lip hue to manipulate it into more of a stain then a matte full-on color. With hair, Balding swept the left side under and back for a sleek, angular, shaved illusion, blow drying the hair to straighten it along with flat ironing the ends, while holding the look in place with Redken Fashion Works Hairspray.
For nails, Manacchio created three different looks, which took a team of six artists a total of 65 hours to make about 600 nails for the show! Secured with sticky tape or glue dots, the three styles of the nails mimicked the inspiration and actual pieces; a favorite was the white opaque nails with clear tips (to match her spring 2013 Bass brand collaboration jelly shoes), that had names of Antonoff’s friends and family written on them in Sharpie marker.
