To complement the long and short dresses in silver, blue and neutrals in the Versace Fall 2009 collection, makeup artist Pat McGrath created intense “midnight eyes” in metallic black and midnight blue colors with heavily rimmed eyeliner. Fake eyelashes were added for extra drama while the skin was kept subdued and flawless in a dewy foundation and shimmery pale pink blush, and the lips were topped with a nude gloss.
I have always loved the bright, dramatic makeup in Bollywood and below is my take. Check back for a more detailed entry on how to capture the look.
Drama is an understatement when it comes to the Dolce & Gabbana A/W 2009 show at Milan Fashion Week. The collection featured lots and lots of shoulders (yes they are back!), all kinds of fur, ruffles, tuxedos and even a ballgown with Marilyn Monroe photo prints. While black and white dominated the luxe collection of belted dresses and coats, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana added in a pop of color with a few pieces and accessories in hot pink, blue and red. My favorites are the red corseted dress, the ruffled dresses and those gigantic suede platform wedges (how can you not love them?!) What about you ladies?
