Vivienne Westwood Fall 2013

Val Garland (MAC): Our influences? Medieval Arabic-That and you throw in the pot with David Bowie from Life On Mars. So think of the visual of David Bowie, where I have a very pale face, very kind of skeletal looking, With This bright blue eyeshadow and no brows. It’s kind of like that. So we’ve got two kind of characters going on: the Bowie-esque character and the other: her boyfriend’s gone off to the Crusades, and she’s a Medieval woman back at the castle, and she’s been upstairs in the tower for far too long and she’s a little bit dusty, a little bit dirty. She’s quite innocent and sweet but she’s obviously been left to decay for quite some time. I Guess You Could Say That We are pushing a trend here today, and the trend is matte That We’re pushing. Which is a big trend across the catwalks this season and it does not get any matte-r than this moment at Westwood.

Sam McKnight: The hair is kind of a surreal Vivienne Westwood idea: to do plastic braids. We have garment bags from her showroom Which are braided into the hair with some ripped up That Were fabrics in the collection, georgette some socks. There’s quite an ode to Yves Saint Laurent in the collection Which is kind of unusual for Vivienne, but they’re Such admirers of classic Saint Laurent. And you’ll see it When you see it. But Their original idea was kind of floor length braids medieval Which kind of mutated into-through the course of the evening at the fitting-well, why dont we put some plastic and some fabric in there? Which was kind of a nod to YSL as well, the small head, braided thing, but the plastic is taking it somewhere else. I think it fits with Vivienne’s eco-warrior ethos as well. Anyway. It’s a surreal braid for Vivienne!

Violet Eyes: Inmitable Chanel Cils Intense and Guerlain Maxi Lash Mascaras D’Enfer

Having violet-colored eyes have always been an [iris / melanin-related jackpot] indication of great beauty (Consider Elizabeth Taylor’s pair, topped by her Doubled set of lashes, a genetic mutation, to boot), but what of violet-hued eyelashes ?

I’m not one to stray from the thin black liner / thick black fringe combination, at the risk of looking like I got lost on the way to a rave. Or at least, that’s what I thought, until, I started picking up on what the industry’s putting down, ie Guerlain’s Cils D’Enfer Maxi Lash Mascara and Chanel’s Intense purple Inmitable, Both in aubergine-enough-meaning, mellow brownish-purple-shades That pick up any flecks of green or gold in my iris like nobody’s business. No kiddie scary-tints, and the spiked-wands Are those plastic ones that I love (for premiere lash-grabbing). As for the color, it melts into and around the natural dark shade of your eyelash for just a subtle hint of intrigue, to keep Those eyeballs coming back your way … at least until you’re Able to grow another layer of lashes, like good ol ‘Liz.

The Manic Pixie Dream Cut

When Naomi Campbell’s Steven Meisel-lensed Vogue Italia cover [27] crossed our desks, nearly all of our hands crept up to our necks With One single shared thought: pixie cuts! They’re definitely “happening” in 2013-forget the Daria, just feast your eyes on the Jean Seberg-wigs from Dior Couture reminiscent, but beyond that; check out Jean Seberg (and Natalie Portman, Kate Moss, Rihanna, Carey Mulligan, Mia Farrow … you get the picture). Once you start looking for the chic-and-short cut of your dreams, well, it’s pretty hard to stop. So if you’re in the market for a major change (and hey, why Should not you be? It’s just hair, right? It grows [... right?]), Check out our crop of lovely ladies rocking what else ? The crop.

Summer Cut!

kay, okay. It’s not summer yet. In fact, it’s been freezing in New York, When All I want to do is wear one of the eight pairs of cut-off shorts I’ve collected over the past three weeks. The compromise was to meet up with Brian again and lop off a good four inches of hair. Dry cut, with a razor-quick and easy, down and dirty. I was inspired by a couple of models: Kati Nescher, the twenty-seven year old overnight sensation who I spotted at the beginning of fall shows (backstage at Alexander Wang), and Mars Van Haaster, the Dutch Prada / Miu Miu darling with a haphazard “lob” (long bob).

Until the past couple of months, I have not felt inclined to mess with my hair Because there’s not a ton That can be done with it. It’s dead straight, and while “shiny” and “healthy” are pluses Generally, I long for dry, tousled, wavy texture. Coincidentally, Noshin, an ITG reader from London, emailed over the weekend asking for tips on “Achieving second or third day hair on newly washed hair first day.” Well my friend, this is something I’ve learned a thing or two about. I suggest mixing a thickening lotion (like Redken Body Builder 06) with some styling cream (Bumble and bumble and Shu Uemura are two favorites) in the palm of your hands and working through That towel-dried hair, to start. After blasting it off with a dryer or air-drying, spray Oribe’s Dry Texturizing Spray-sections through from root to tip, and Let That Settle for a minute before raking your hands through it. Throw it up into a half-knot ponytail (or little messy bun) on and off THROUGHOUT the day, so it gets little bends and kinks in it. And then do not wash your hair for three days-a good head shake and a blast of dry shampoo Should be all you need. It Should just keep getting better and bett

Somebody’s Excited For Her Vacation

nnual tradition, we’re hightailing it up to Martha’s Vineyard for some lobstering / BBQ-ing / amateur mixology in the land of grosgrain belts and pressed jeans. I, However, always take the opportunity to pack as little as possible, and This Year is no exception: no makeup (not a lick), 1 bikini (Lisa Marie Fernandez), clean underwear, the Ksubi shorts and Sandro tank on my back , an Isabel Marant “America” jersey (The Most athletic’ll get, Olympics or not), sandals (from a Tibetan store in Williamsburg), Céline shades, and a smattering of easy-breezy skincare products chucked into my trusty Wm. J. Mills & Co tote … I’m ready to hit the road. “That’s it? Where’s your stuff?” my friends will say, and I’ll flash a smile That gratified indeed, I can survive and thrive for four days with next to nothing. Because When You roll out of bed in some magical beach house, are you really going to go through a three-step routine? I think not. I’ll reach for my SkinCeuticals antioxidant potions, throw on some Anthelios SPF, and call it a day. After I wash off the grime at dusk-with, gasp, whatever’s laying around, I’ll throw on some Joelle Ciocco oil, sweep Lucas’ Papaw ointment over my lips and make a cocktail. Oh, and somewhere in between, you better believe I’ll be bringing myself up-to-date on That heart-wrenching K-Stew/R-Patz debacle. The chicest thing I’ll be doing this weekend is reading Vanity Fair’s best-dressed list.

All These women are beautiful, but in my view, This hairstyle in my opinion makes every person pictured look worse. Furthermore, I do not know a single male who Prefers this look to a normal hairstyle. I know that everyone here will pounce on That comment as misogynistic drivel, and I am NOT trying to Imply That women’s fashion is looking good to men acerca.

Scenting Room 101: Flameless Edition

We’ve Talked About candles a lot recently, and while we’re not Intending to stop anytime soon (I mean, Michael only just got hooked!), A fair number of our lovely readers have us in comments Told That They Can not Their current use candles in Situations living (dorm rooms, etc), or maybe you just do not love the notion of candles. They’re sort of rude to burn during dinner, for obvious Reasons (food / perfume do not mix) and, as Emily pointed out the other day, Sometimes if you let your Feu de Bois go for a while, you start to wonder if your apartment might be burning down. So, This brought us all to a new topic of conversation: ways to scent your space That Do not require any excess feu near your bois. Let’s talk about fragrance for the flame-averse, or scenting Room 101. [Cue applause!] And please note, all of the below are decidedly unisex.

Admittedly, in the room-scenting game, Avoiding the wax-and-wicked stuff out there will narrow your options down some, but you are by no means out of them.

For those still happy to play with (a little) fire: Both Santa Maria Novella and Francis Kurkdjian make gorgeously scented incense papers-the Latter’s come in the ITG-beloved flavors Aqua Universalis, APOM, and Lumiere Noir, and are really tellement chic in Their little box (matches on one side, on the other papers). The procedure is the Same with both: you fold up the paper like a little accordion, light one edge, blow it out, and let the perfumed smoke go, à la incense. Santa Maria Novella’s Carte d’Armenia papers are shockingly Effective deodorizers (if someone in your flat’s been smoking, or is smelly, or your cat has been marking his territory and you just cooked gumbo, whatever), and Their little red leather box is very sophisticated looking. Be sure to get some sort of ashtray / saucer on Which to burn them, though, Because again, please do not burn down your house.

If you are of a particularly … let’s call it “woodsy” mindset: A company called Juniper Ridge-motto: “We go to the mountains -> Harvest Wild Plants -> Natural Distill fragrance”-sells home-scenting Their earthy wares at Steven Alan boutiques and online. These include the seriously Voodoo-looking mini Smudge Sticks (available in Mugwort, Also known as “dream weed,” Sage, and Cedar). Note That White sage is Considered ‘purifying’ and has been used on at least one episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills to cleanse a crash-pad of some seriously bad juju. Also They carry “Campfire Incense” in flavors Such as Juniper, Douglas Fir, and Piñon. (Yes, incense burns and Malthus is grouped in with candles Usually as potential fire hazards, but, Unlike candles, sticks only need a few

Service # 38: Cover # 1Self

This week, we’re rolling out the three covers of the spring issue of Self Service, the biannual fashion cult take (that we happen to be obsessed with), and speaking to the brains behind the pictures: the mag’s creative director Suzanne Koller, photographer Collier Schorr, and makeup artist Karim Rahman. Here, Koller talks about a new (old) direction for the magazine and the season:

“This issue is very different. It’s more in the tomboy, early-’90s-still glamorous direction, though. I think it’s somewhat of a reaction to what we’ve done in the past. It actually started with [Contributing stylist] Marie Chaix, who wanted to Work with someone different than Usually she works with. i know that she was close with the artist Roe Ethridge, and so it really started from there, Because Roe is an artist and fashion photographer. Sometimes It can be more interesting to Work with artists who understand fashion photography than just purely fashion photographers, and That Brought Me to Collier Schorr, who I have worked with and Known for some time. I actually thought her men’s portraits were very sexy and good-looking, so I thought , ‘Well, maybe I can do that with Women with her.’ And so we shot a series of portraits, Collier and I, and wound up three of Those Selecting photos for the covers: Bo [Don] Anja [Rubik], and Iselin [Steiro].

In general, what we wanted to do this season was específicamente work with art photographers, but photographers who understand fashion art photography. They’re quite long stories, like 40 to 46 pages. They look so much better When they are long. Sometimes art photographers do not understand fashion and it can Become kind of strange-looking, but totally Understands Collier fashion. The fashion for our shoot también more so in her direction-not really fancy or anything like that, it’s more kind of tomboy, t-shirts, shirts. The mood is totally androgynous but it is Also a lot of minimalism and to return to the early ’90s. That I’m going more in direction: very black and white, plain colors. It’s kind of ‘back to basics’ in a way, instead of going over the top. I really was fascinated by tomboy These pictures of very sexy women looking very normal, but without a lot of makeup. That I just find quite interesting and new, in a way, it feels fresh. Even in my own life, I am kind of tomboyish for the moment. [Laughs] I would say I dress very casual every day, but then for dressing up, it’s-I do not know how to say it-it’s more like dressing down, in a way. I really like menswear: men’s shirts, pants, shoes. I’m very much into that. You know, like Church’s shoes for women. They’re nice.

Fall Winter Makeup
Summer is over and soon the cold. But do you really think that this new station is not going to be able to still look pretty? Nothing is further from the truth. For you to continue shining, then we show trends in makeup this season próximpa.

The coming season will be marked by a ’50s style, hence enhancing more feminine traits and bold colors will be paramount. Then we will reveal the secrets to consider to achieve that new look.

As always, I say, the first and fundamental choice will be a good foundation. This season will come marked by tones “nude” to get a very natural effect and perfect, this is to get the effect of face washed. You know that the best way to apply foundation is with the help of a brush or a cotton circular movements and seeking to extend their best.

The next step will be the eyeshadow. The shadows will acquire a key role especially in the eyelid. The colors purple and mauve will be the big winners.

Finally, apply the eyeliner, and this time we will use tones that evoke metallic effects. To get the look more intense, nothing like a good applying mascara to give volume.

As for the lips, the colors that are going to take the orange, purple, bronze, plum, eggplant and whole range of violets. On these colors you can apply the gloss to what you get most appetizing lips.

And finally, we need to pay close intention to nails. The color will be essential and nothing better to choose from the range of cold as blue, black, and full range of reds.
