Latex Love Backstage At Lagerfeld


Sixties ‘dos are sweeping the runways for Fall. We’ve already seen them at Prada and Rochas, and they reared their beehived heads again at Karl Lagerfeld on Sunday, where hair wiz Odile Gilbert was making quick work of the towering styles. “It’s easy—tease, tease, tease!” she said as she gathered newfound height into flat-sided chignons, which were anchored with a vinyl/latex bandeau headband to echo all the technical fabrics in the collection. Whether or not you’ll be moussing, back-combing, and hair-spraying your way to a five-inch updo come September is debatable, but Gilbert put in a strong endorsement for the rubbery hair accessories. “They’re really comfy,” she said, “and you need that in winter.” You also need timeless makeup, according to Nadine Luke, director of makeup artistry at MAC, who was constructing another version of the incredibly popular red lip that has dominated this season. “It’s exactly what you want to capture for fall: It’s classy, modern, and elegant.” Luke started with MAC’s Cream Colour Base in Vintage Rose to create a “flush, not a blush” on cheeks and then added subtle accents to the eyes with two shadows—Handwritten, a matte brown, which she topped with a sweep of Notoriety, an as-yet-unreleased shimmery, smoky shade to give lids “that expensive look.” After a few coats of mascara, she pulled out the game-changer, a.k.a. MAC’s wildly popular orange-crimson pout enhancer, Lady Danger. “The great thing about it is that it does not take a lot of makeup to do,” she said of the look. “Plus it ages well; years later this still looks appropriate!”
