Topshop Unique’s girl is effortlessly cool and understatedly chic—a profile that was made infinitely clear with a quick peruse of the show’s front row. Next to Elle Fanning sat Leigh Lezark, who was a stone’s throw away from Poppy Delevingne, Pixie Geldof, Tallulah Harlech, and Olivia Palermo. “She’s the girl that everyone wants to be,” hairstylist Anthony Turner confirmed backstage, where the It-ness of it all was reinforced with a gaggle of the season’s biggest catwalkers. Cara, Jourdan, et al. got Turner’s low side parts, which were tucked behind the ears and treated with L’Oréal Beach Frizz for a shine-free, matte texture. “It’s the day after the night before,” he explained, throwing in a “nineties Kate Moss” reference as well as the words “very cool” to describe strands, thus completing the season’s hair inspiration trifecta. As models lined up before the show, Turner roughed up the hairline and broke up sections in the back, creating a randomness to the otherwise uniform coifs.
“It’s nineties grunge meets punk,” makeup artist Hannah Murray further elaborated, giving a “pretty edge” to designer Kate Phelan’s white and pale yellow palette. Mixing two Topshop Makeup Blushes in Prime Time and Flush, Murray made a makeshift, rosy eye shadow, which she dabbed with the silvery shade from its Eyeshadow Palette in Constellation to give lids a sheer iridescence. Cheeks were contoured using Topshop Lips in Beguiled, a vampish dark red that was layered with a dollop of its Balm for a dewy finish. To ensure the girls didn’t look “too done,” Murray took mouths down with a finger-patting of foundation while manicurist Anatole Rainey reprised Spring’s “nothing nail” with Topshop Nails in Nice & Neutral.

The beauty world finally got its turn to take over the Standard Hotel’s new Boom Boom Room last night when Dior pulled out all the stops to fête the tenth anniversary of its popular fruity-floral scent J’Adore. One of the brand’s most successful fragrance franchises to date, the bergamot, rose, and jasmine absolute perfume drew quite the crowd. Tall model types clad in white satin minidresses and bright red lipstick passed out hors d’oeuvres and cocktails to the likes of Tinsley Mortimer, Olivia Palermo, Lydia Hearst, Theodora Richards, and Coco Rocha while DJ, Dior Ambassador, and girl-about-town Harley Viera-Newton spun a combination of soul, hip-hop, and classic pop. In addition to the privilege of taking in a panoramic view of the city from 18 floors above the Meatpacking District, partygoers got to preview the limited-edition J’Adore flacon set to hit counters next month. The eau de parfum collector’s bottle features a glass pendant engraved with Christian Dior’s initials, which can be strung up on a chain and worn as a necklace. Just a little thank you from the House of Dior to all its devoted fans.
