Flashback Friday: In Search of Bright Lights
Flashback Fridays 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: Stella Tennant
The Moment: Nearly Neon
The Motivation: With New York fashion week right around the corner, now is the time we start wondering what beauty looks and trends we’ll discover at the tents (or, in the case of many a designer, the multiple off-site locations). Barely-there makeup was de rigueur last season, but there was the occasional jolt of color that brightened our day—take, for example, Gucci Westman’s traffic-stopping orange pouts at Rag & Bone. It may have been a first for Marcus Wainwright and David Neville, but Stella Tennant and readers of this 1995 issue of i-D were already well versed in the power of electro-tangerine lips. The model’s loud mouth is a prime example of what we’d love to see more of for Fall 2014 to counteract the cold, gray skies we’ll likely have to endure while schlepping from show to show.—Tara Lamont-Djite
