Throwback Thursday: Brighter Is Better

-------

Pola by Irving PennThrowback Thursday is a column on Beauty Counter in which we pore over the pages of our favorite glossies from decades past in search of a little modern-day makeup and hair inspiration.

The Model: Pola

The Moment: Contrasting Colors

The Motivation: Fashion and beauty go hand in hand, and this season’s catwalks proved again just how true the saying is. From Marc by Marc Jacobs to Prada to Céline to Miu Miu, blocks of color covered models’ lids in much the same way these daring shades dominated the runways. A prime example: Prada’s street art-inspired set and coats. And so it was with plenty of excitement that I discovered the above shot (lensed by one of the greats, Irving Penn). By pairing a bold, glossy lip with even bolder eyes, model Pola makes yet another strong case for the rewards associated with breaking the beauty rules. After all, life is never just black and white.
