A Homecoming Queen Is Crowned Backstage At Jonathan Saunders
The first thing we noticed when Jonathan Sunders 1940′s prom queens sashayed onto the runway yesterday was a striking red lip. The second thing we noticed? The same vibrant crimson color on the soles of an impressive parade of Louboutins—three of which we have already started planning outfits around. The matte scarlet pout will likely be significantly easier to obtain come spring, so we got the low-down from makeup artist Lucia Pieroni, who lined models’ mouths with MAC’s Lip Pencil in Cherry before dabbing on a very precise application of its Lipstick in Ruby Woo. That serenely smooth skin that can only belong to a 16-year-old prom queen (or model, as the case may be) came courtesy of MAC’s Mineralize Skinfinish in Medium Deep with a slight contouring of its Pigment in Vanilla for a waxy, flawless finish. Paul Hanlon added to this picture of chaste perfection with a bouncy ponytail that retained a bit of a masculine, greaser edge from a subtle pompadour-esque ridge that he slicked back from girls’ foreheads with pomade. A number of words come to mind to describe the look—lovely, charming, delightful—one of which is not seventies, a refreshing change of pace from a week of London shows.
