A 1950's affair
The ultimate era in sophisticated elegance, the 1950s returned to the runways this season, in all its glory
Faux-bobs as perfect as that of the Stepford wives themselves, were spotted at the Jill Sander show. Backstage hairstylist Guido Palau gathered the models’ strandsinto a low ponytail and rolled it under to create curled-under bobs. The Fendi show also had their models walk the runway with their hair in a similar style deigned by hairstylist Sam McKnight who brought in a bouffant like volume to go with it.
Hairstylist Eugene Suleiman was the brains behind the spill proof, cone shaped chignons at the Rochas show. Rolled hair and bright red lips was the look customized for the Jean Paul Gaultier show where stylists were given the directive of channeling the fifties. Amped up beehives were the look of choice at Diane Von Furstenberg. Val Garland channeled a 1950's Miami housewife with thick, black eye liner wings at Jonathan Saunders.
Cars from the decade were the inspiration behind the makeup at the Proenza Schouler show. Makeup artist Diane Kendal set to create clean lines by sweeping a matte bronzer under themodels’cheekbones to complement hairstylist Paul Hanlon's de-contructed pompadours.
