Sticky and Sweet at Miu Miu

October 2, 2013 5:56pm I have firmly committed to the lipstick camp, mainly for one reason: I refuse to pull my hair off my mouth every time the wind blows. Sure, that shine is tempting, and I highly recommend gloss to girls who can deal—I just don’t happen to be one of them. But...

Reined-in Glamour at Roberto Cavalli

September 21, 2013 5:03pm Similar to Donatella Versace last night, yet another designer known for excess—Roberto Cavalli—opted for simplicity when it came to beauty, juxtaposing beaded gowns, metallic fabrics, and snakeskin with pared-down hair and makeup. “Anything that looks like you’ve tried feels old; the not-caring theme is what makes it sexy,” said mane...

A Relaxed Rock Star Look, Backstage At Versace

But then again, only Donatella would consider a set and a half of false lashes “minimal.” With Axl Rose and Stephanie Seymour serving as muses (there were concert-like tees, ruched biker shorts, and a shimmery take on denim...

Backstage at Marc Jacobs: Blonds That Break All The Rules

September 14, 2013 12:43am If you looked at the models at Marc Jacobs and thought, “Did they plop a bowl on their heads and take a pair of scissors to their hair?” you were on the right track.
