NYFW S/S '10: Stila and Tony&Guy @ Walter

Stila and Tony&Guy @ Walter
1980s opulence was in the air at
Walter. Designer Walter Baker was inspired by "people who live their life in a bubble," a la the decade of decadence before, well, said bubble burst. The beauty was luxurious, with an edge. "The hair is a nod to the 80's - in the most tasteful sense," said Blischke. "We took the best elements of the decade - big hair, big perms and punk rock 'dos - for an edgy style that's also feminine." That translated to one of the more interesting styles we've seen this fashion week - hair with spongy curls on one side, and a tight, thick cornroll braid on the other. Make was sultry and smudgy, with a decidedly slept-in look. Makeup artist Viviana Martin explained: "We went back to the 80s with lots of dark browns, gold shimmers and faded out black liner. Nothing hard - very soft."

The skin was clean with muted lips and natural brushed-up brows. It's her philosophy that when there is a sheen on one part of the face, like the eyes, the rest should have a healthy, matte finish. She noted that while the coming season is all about pretty glamour, the techniques should be simple. Your makeup should take you 5 minutes, not 25. Using a double sided brush, Sarah packed on shades of pomegranate and berry that she then applied wet as liner before piling on the mascara.Recreate the look using Boquet (as base) and Pigalle eye shadow pans and the Montmartre quad.

To complete the rocker chic look, Deb applied Hit Me With Your Best Shot, the shade she created with Pat Benatar, but she didn't stop there. Instead of giving the models her typical flawless manicure, she went for a deconstructed smudged look by messing up their nails 20 or 30 minutes later. As Deb so cheekily put it, "so she maybe got back into bed before her nails were dry."


Lots of Tony & Guy Rockaholic Dirty Secret Dry Shampoo was used for soft, pliable volume. Blischke explained: "A great tip for successfully braiding your hair is to use dry shampoo. It makes the hair more malleable, with less flyaways, and the hair will better stay in place when you're winding it into a braid."
