Flashback Friday: The Picture of Innocence
Flashback Friday is a feature on Beauty Counter in which we pore over the pages of our favorite glossies from decades past in search of a little modern-day makeup and hair inspiration.
The Model: Gisele Bündchen
The Moment: A Youthful Glow
The Motivation: I’ve been poring over Rizzoli’s latest tome, Chloé Attitudes, for weeks, not only admiring the stunning imagery that chronicles the label’s history, but also the makeup looks that have graced the runways. The house has been a huge fan of some of fashion’s biggest faces, like Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, and Linda Evangelista—all of whom appeared in ads at one point or another. So when I stumbled across the above shot of a very young Gisele (before she earned her Victoria’s Secret Angel wings and was credited with bringing sexy back to modeling), I couldn’t help but feel there was a cosmic connection in place. Not to mention her luminous, freckled skin, berry-stained lips, and palm-frond green liner that had me at hello.
