Balmain Loves the Eighties
To balance Balmain’s over-the-top, rock-star-worthy clothes, Olivier Rousteing typically prefers a no-fuss approach to hair and makeup at his runway shows. But this season, the young designer decided to go all out on the beauty look for the label’s Inez-and-Vinoodh-lensed Fall campaign, starring Cora Emmanuel, Manon Leloup, Khadija, and Elisabeth Erm. In several of the images, Erm is sporting a high, teased-out ponytail, plus heavily contoured blush (that creeps up onto her temples) and eye shadow reminiscent of the eighties—all in a fuchsia that matches her jewel-toned outfit. It isn’t an everyday look, to be sure, but we think it complements the blingy collection. What about you?
