Monique Lhuillier takes glamour to a new level for the Fall/Winter 2011 season. The hair, makeup and nails served as elegant accessories.
Hair by Odile Gilbert for Kérastase took as it’s inspiration A modern-day Audrey Hepburn’s Breakfast at Tiffany’s mixed with haute couture. The hairstyle was an elegant but sophisticated twist on the traditional up-do. To get this look, layer Ciment Thermique and Mousse Volumactive on damp hair, then add a few drops of Elixir Ultime for shine and begin brushing hair up into a high ponytail. Curl hair in sections, pinning them in a delicate way around the face and the crown of the head, spraying Double Force Control Utime Hair Spray as you work. Adorn the style with a small black silk ribbon
Makeup was by Val Garland for MAC Cosmetics and featured a dark plum smoky eye, luminous skin and a rose lip. To get the perfect shade, plum and black were mixed and applied in a slightly modified cat-eye. Finish the eye by lining in black; no mascara was used.
Wanda Ruiz of CND presented the Shady Lady Manicure – comprised of Silver Chrome topped with Desert Suede, iced with Fall 2011 limited edition Dark Amethyst Colour. This goth, dangerous nail, paired with ribbon-esque hair and deep violet, smokey eyes accessorized nudes, blood red, and cheetah print fabrics on the runway.
