Daisy Lowe, In Full Color


That whole British It-girl thing from earlier in the year has come and gone for us, but we’re still kind of into Daisy Lowe—mostly because of the way she pulled off those red leopard-print short shorts front row at Dolce & Gabbana this season. On a beauty tip, we’ve noticed that she loves mascara and a thick black liner on her lower lid. More recently, she’s gotten into blush—or “blusher,” as it’s called across the pond. At the U.K. premiere of Where the Wild Things Are last night, however, she added a sheer brick-red lip to the equation, which took her look one step too far, if you ask us. We like to keep it simple with a lip or a cheek, but not both. You?

Blending In To Stand Out At Burberry


“Christopher [Bailey] has a very clear idea of what he wants—he even chose the specific shade of silver for the actual runway,” said makeup artist Wendy Rowe, putting the final touches on Lily Donaldson’s face backstage at Burberry yesterday. With that kind of clear vision from the brand’s creative director, Rowe’s job was relatively easy. “We took colors from the trenches, like mustard and butterscotch, and just blended, blended, and blended,” she explained of the fresh look she hoped to achieve from alternating strokes of an arsenal of makeup that included face-perfecting weapons from Shu Uemura, MAC, Dior, and YSL. “We didn’t really want one thing to stand out,” she continued, “so it feels light and natural.” Added model-of-the-moment Anna Selezneva: “Normally I don’t feel that comfortable leaving shows in full makeup because it’s always a bit heavy, but this feels like what I would do on a normal day, almost like diet makeup!” The look’s wearability factor certainly fell in line with the collective aesthetic of the show’s very impressive front row. Gwyneth Paltrow, Liv Tyler, Freida Pinto, Victoria Beckham, Emma Watson, et al. seemed to abide by the same cosmetic credo: minimal, unobtrusive, and subtle (see this blog’s Celebrity Looks post below for a further discussion on the matter). “He just knows what he wants, right down to the shade of lipstick,” Rowe reiterated of Bailey. That meant matte, neutral pouts all around. Though Daisy Lowe and her bright red lips apparently didn’t get the memo.

Beth Ditto’s Design Debut


Newly minted fashion darling Beth Ditto has designed a plus-size line for U.K. high street chain Evans, and the only thing that topped its star-studded launch party last night (hello, Kate, Daisy, Peaches, et al.) was the Gossip frontwoman’s spectacular face-painting job. That is indeed a fuchsia lip complemented by fuchsia blush at the temples and a crazy smoky-eye-meets-cat-eye that we wouldn’t even begin to know how to replicate at home. Fingers crossed she’ll be doing a cosmetics line next. Thoughts on the look?

“Pantaloon Catsuits” And Hair To Match at Pam Hogg


Sometimes, off-schedule shows at fashion week can be more exciting than the ones ticket holders line up for en masse. Pam Hogg’s presentation at London’s Science Museum this week was one such occurrence, as the seventies/eighties club kid and fashion rebel-turned designer showed for the first time in nearly a decade. Daisy Lowe opened the show; Alice Dellal and actress Jaime Winstone walked—all while front-rowers Gareth Pugh, Siouxsie Sioux, and Irish dance-pop goddess Róisín Murphy watched a blur of sequins, colored fur, and black and fluorescent Lycra fly by. The hair, courtesy of stylist Malcolm Edwards, was equally, um, statement-making. Think teased-out bouffants with mega-height—not too far of a cry from Hogg’s own stylistic leanings.

Daisy Lowe’s Optical Illusion


When we first spotted Daisy Lowe front-row at the Issa show this week
(and then later, sans outfit change, at the Hats: An Anthology by Stephen Jones private view), we were in a slight state of shock. Had the former Mark Ronson flame and new Marc by Marc Jacobs Spring campaign star forgone her signature hipster haircut for a short pompadour?Upon further inspection, we discovered that Ms. Lowe was actually just experimenting with a tight twist, leaving the ends out and in a curly mop on top of her head for the illusion of a boy cut, although our initial distress is only now starting to wear off. Thoughts on her uncharacteristic updo?
