Runway Beauty: Thakoon at Fall 2010 Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week

The look is all about a strong brow and nude lips at the Thakoon Fall 2010 show.



Inspiration: Chopinot & Gaultier’s Le Défilé. “I was inspired by the costumes used in this show and wanted to create a collection that reflected that same era but without the goth element,” said designer Thakoon Panichgul.

Look: “The look is fresh, beautiful, luminous and quite confident,” said lead NARS artist Diane Kendal about the look. “We focused on a strong brow and highlighted the eyes to show depth and boldness in a way that wouldn’t fight with the various textures, layers and colors of the collection.”
