Hairstylist Peter Gray for Redken was inspired by Uma Thurman in Pulp Fiction when he decided to cut black wigs into sharp, angled bobs. But the real treat came when he sprayed them gold and laid a lace inset into the middle, creating one of the coolest, most unique looks we have yet to see on the runway. “I’ve done so much hairdressing in all the shows that I sort of lost my roots,” Gray told us backstage. “I started at Sassoon, so I thought it would be nice to come back to it.” (And, okay, it doesn’t hurt that we LOVE Peter Gray.)
A mix of influences—Diana Vreeland, the 1930’s and the Duchess of Windsor—contributed to James Kaliardos for M.A.C’s inspiration behind the makeup look here. He went for a more masculine look to contrast the femininity and sophistication of the clothing, bringing in camels and dusty roses and strengthening the brows with a camel hue. “The shape is strong, but the color is soft,” he told us.
If you like Manolos, then you’ll love the custom tips Wanda Ruiz for CND created at this show! There were two versions of Manolo Manicures—Blacktrack with Airdry top coat, or Putty with Blacktrack “smile lines,” as Ruiz called them. We’ll most certainly be trying out these nails come fall.
