NYFW Beauty Diane Von Furstenburg Fall/Winter 2012

Diane Von Furstenberg’s Fall/Winter 2012 seductive, bold and daring
collection appropriately titled “Rendezvous,” called for deep smoky
eyes, perfect nude skin, defined brows and a rose lip. To create a
strong, confident and feminine look, the hair was shiny with a deep side
part, tightly gathered in a low chignon.

The collection paid homage to the life, style and smoking habits of

late singer Amy Winehouse.

From Amy’s signature beehive hairdo and heavily winged eyeliner

to her eclectic and eccentric mix of floaty silhouettes clinched with rock n roll belts,

  strapped in bustiers to torpedo bras,

there was a hard edged femininity that was offset by Gaultier style androgyny

and buckets full of attitude.

In the finale the models swept past in long, draping black veils,

a bittersweet tribute to a show and a life filled with fun.

Best Makeup From Milan’s Fashion Week via Vogue Paris

Milan Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2012

Faithful to their reputation the Milanese shows gave us the best in glamour, the best in makeup.
The looks ranged from intense to luminous to very dark. Whether juxtapositioning a heavy eye with a bared out brow, as at Gucci, or a maquillage like a second skin at Alberta Ferretti, an unhurried, essential beauty ruled the runway.
Here are some of my favorites via Vogue Paris:

At Gucci bare skin was paired with a graphically intense eye and a bleached out brow.

Gold brows at Fendi

Subtle winged eye and neutral visage at Dolce & Gabbana

At Emilio Pucci a neutral palette offset a charcoal eye, heavily lined and buffed out under the eye then faded out to the temples


Bohemian chic at Moschino. A heavily ringed eye paired with a contoured rosy cheek and a soft lip.

At Versace the look was all about the lashes. Long, defined and maximum volume.

Nails were the big accessory at Missoni. From bright blue to metallic, alluringly sophisticated.

 Blugirl was all about a simple clean skin, a hint of blush and a slightly rosy lip. Ethereal.

70’s retro at Just Cavalli. Blue, grey and silver meticulous and magnetic, and explosion of color and accent on the eyes.

A goldmine at Cavalli. Golden eyes and cheeks paired with a glowing soft mouth. Beautiful.

Simple and luminous at Alberta Ferretti
