New York S/S ’13: Erin Fetherston & 3 Looks to Copy-Catwalk Now
Fri, 7 September 2012 10:34AM
It’s that time of year again, Primpers! The Trend Train has just pulled into the first stop of its twice-yearly New York-to-Paris voyage. Sure, it’s a little too early to be making grand hair and makeup statements. But we’ve already put Erin Fetherston’s look on our beauty wishlist.
Let’s break down what there is to love about it ..
1. The Faux Fringe … With a Twist
You surely know we heart a fringe here at PRIMPED. But we understand that not all of you are prepared to make the cut. Nor are you necessarily brave enough to risk a faux variety, as matching it well can be a little bit dicey (as Rachel McAdams recently discovered). So what about this (literal) twist on the faux-fringe? Über hairstylist Odile Gilbert styled models’ hair into ribbon-like waves, popped on a cool zipper-detailed headband, and then took a large chunk of hair from the front, which she twirled back, tucking it into the band so that hair fell across the forehead, à la side-fringe style.
Here’s another view:
2. Rounded-Square Tips. But for Eyes.
A flirty flick of liquid liner would probably have been a little obvious, not to mention textbook-retro. By painting a thick line of black (for the record: M.A.C Fluidline in Blacktrack, $32, M.A.C) along the upper and lower lashes, and merging them together at a rounded-square tip, the effect is a kind of wedge shape that looks modern and graphic and just a little bit edgy. Don’t stress too much about getting the finish 100% first off; just do your liquid or gel line as usual, then go in with a makeup corrector to get the tip you want. Try ModelCo’s Eye Liquid Buds, $14.50, ModelCo.
3. Matching your Pointers to your Pumps
This one follows hot on the, er, heels of Hayley’s neon-and-neutral-shoe-inspired mani. Designer Erin Fetherston wanted the nails in her show to tie in with the outfit, and so had them work right back to the metallic shoes.
That meant a silvery-lilac licked on the nails of girls with silver shoes (she chose Butter London’s Lillibet’s Jubilee, which is on sale for $19.80 at Honey Honey); and a gilt (Butter’s The Full Monty, $22, Adore Beauty) painted on the tips of models with the, yep, gold shoes.
What do you think, ladies? Any of these looks tickle your fancy?
Are you excited about Fashion Week? Any shows in particular?
