John Galliano is at it with his dramatic flair at the Christian Dior Spring 2010 Haute Couture show. Models strutted the runway with big poofy hair, highly arched brows, matte red lips, heavily winged out black eyeliner and pops of green, purple, blue and pink on the eyelids.
Look#1: Underground Society
An aerodynamically misplaced streak of liner. A lip packed in Pigment or duo-chromatically constructed… a hardass brow. “It’s more of an attempt to project an attitude of individuality and a sense of ownership than about looking gorgeous in any traditional sense,” explains Terry Barber.
Of difference: we’re at a moment in beauty when identikit perfection looks positively passé. Touching on tribal elements with striking originality (Underground Society), taking a couture approach to nude makeup (Pale ‘N’ Dandy), feeling the heat of a carefree, sun-warmed vibe (American Nomad) or getting creative with the murano-glass palette being passed about (Dye-A-Tribe) feels eminently more interesting and appropriate. “The essential point with makeup this season is that it’s about projecting emotion and attitude, about not looking the same as everyone else,” explains Terry Barber.
The 2009 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is back on TV tonight and just like any other year, the hair and makeup is totally to die for!
