New York Fashion Week Monique Lhullier, Jenny Packham, Proenza Schouler, Pamella Roland, Victoria Beckham

For Monique Lhullier’s luxurious and feminine fall/winter 2011 collection, the hair and make-up look was doll meets punk. Make-up artist Val Garland for MAC created a deep purple smoky eye, intense brows and berry-colored lips. Odile Gilbert for K√©rastase created a doll-like, haute-couture updo, with ribbon-like curls topped off with a black bow.

Jenny Packham‘s feminine and fun autumn / winter 2011 collection included textured and delicate pieces, flowing gowns and beautiful metallic embroidery. The color palate featured nude, black and brown tones. The makeup and hair was very soft, romantic and nymph-like: Talia Shobrook for Temptu created frosted eyelids, warm, peachy cheeks and applied a soft coral color to the lips. Leonardo Mannetti of Community NYC for L’Oreal created long, flowing hair with soft waves, echoing Botticelli’s Venus.

Jack McCulloch and Lazaro Hernandez of Proenza Schouler took inspiration from Native American blankets purchased on a road trip from Santa Fe to Wyoming as the starting point for their Fall/Winter 2011 collection.
Strong geometry and homespun fabrics took on a complex sophistication and became the foundation for a brightly colored, bold and inventive show. Brilliant!
