At the Fall 2009 show, Karl Lagerfeld mixed in the popular ’80s theme we see this season with futurism. He kept his pieces tailored and added in a military twist with “bridge shoulders” and fur helmets.
Compared to the Vivienne Westwood Red Label Fall 2009 collection we saw at London Fashion Week, the Vivienne Westwood Fall 2009 collection was a disappointment. While there are some pieces that I liked, the Mantegna-inspired collection just feels like all over the place. The makeup and hair, on the other hand, are much better and very Pamela Anderson – slightly trashy yet gorgeous.
To complement the long and short dresses in silver, blue and neutrals at the Versace Fall 2009 collection, makeup artist Pat McGrath created an 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.
