October 8, 2013 4:06pm Backstage, there was a lot of airbrushing going on, but the pros weren’t perfecting complexions Photoshop-style—far from it.

Better Off Beige

May 31, 2013 1:48pm When news broke before the shows started last season that makeup artist Peter Philips would be giving up his title as Chanel creative director of makeup, we took some solace in the fact that he’d still be the brand’s go-to face painter on campaigns and backstage at runway shows.

Kurt, Courtney, And Couture Lips, Backstage At Dries Van Noten

Backstage Reviews September 26, 2012  5:00 pm “The first idea Dries showed me was a Kurt Cobain/Courtney Love image, so I thought about a lip,” Peter Philips said backstage at the designer’s Spring show.
