Warhol, Alive And Kicking at Victoria Beckham
Alexander Wang’s Jean-Michel Basquiat beauty reference is getting company this week from another art star: That would be Andy Warhol, whose colorful, silk-screened portraits of Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor inspired makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury at Victoria Beckham’s presentation (and James Kaliardos at DVF a few hours later). Tilbury layered two of Lancôme’s Color Design Eye Shadows in Trendy and Drama for a violet lid of epic proportions—we’re talking full-on lash line to brow ridge coverage. Adding to the Factory-era feel was a precise black liner job with a flick on the end, which she meticulously drew on with Lancôme’s Artline in Noir, and a few brushstrokes of its Hypnôse Custom Volume Mascara. Lips were painted a creamy shade of nude with the French beauty brand’s L’Absolu Rouge Lipstick in Rich Cashmere, topped off with a thick layer of its Juicy Tubes in Pure, a clear gloss. Frédéric Fekkai coif master Didier Malige picked up right where Tilbury left off with a statement sixties middle part (if they’re not deep and to the side, tresses have been split in the center so far this season). Prepping hair with Fekkai’s Advanced Full Volume Styling Whip to add some thickness before tucking it behind models’ ears, Malige fashioned an unexpected crimp across the back mid-lengths using a curling iron. It provided a nice shot of modernity to an otherwise retro look.
