HAIR: James Pecis for Moroccanoil
NAILS: Sofia Shusterov for MAC Cosmetics
SNAPSHOT: Ethereal and Whimsical
THE SCOOP: "The collection was inspired by a Ryan McGinley photograph of kids in caves with sparkles," James Kaliardos, lead makeup artist for MAC Cosmetics, told StyleList. We weren't quite sure what that meant, aside from the fact that Kaliardos used that image for his eye concept -- which was beautifully subtle with sparkle and lashes that looked "more wet than disco queen." The eye was even subtle enough to allow for a graphic deep-red lip.
As far as hair for the Nanette Lepore Fall 2011 fashion show, James Pecis, lead stylist for Moroccanoil, described the look as "whimsical and ethereal." He created two versions of the style, both with loose French braids, one that was half up, and the other with braids wound and pinned up in various patterns.
GET THE LOOK - HAIR: Pecis used Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray on the entire head before blow-drying. He then backcombed the roots for volume and began two French braids or loose cornrows from the right temple going back. For the girls who received complete updos, the braids were then wound in various patterns and pinned to the head. For the girls who received half updos, the two braids were joined together at the back of the crown and the rest of the hair was left in very loose waves.
