NYFW Backstage Beauty Alert: Lancôme Gets In On The Sister Act
One of the hottest tickets at NYFW this season is shaping up to be The Row, the Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen-designed line that will make its catwalk debut on February 16. The prospect of seeing what the sisters can do live and in person—and maybe catch a glimpse of either or both of them (or Nate Lowman) backstage—is exciting enough for us to add the presentation to our color-coded Excel spreadsheet, but things just got a little more interesting. Style.com has learned that one Aaron De Mey—the Lancôme artistic director of makeup and the man that Riccardo Tisci trusts for both his ready-to-wear and couture shows—will be doing the backstage face painting. (Three words on Mr. De Mey’s handiwork at the Givenchy Fall 2009 Couture presentation: gilded face rhinestones.) His presence at The Row’s show should add a layer of wow to what we’re already expecting to be a pretty exciting 15 minutes.
