NYFW Fall 2015: We’re obsessed with Marc Jacobs’ ladies who lunch
Leave it to Marc Jacobs to make the most polished and put together woman also the coolest in New York. That’s what the American
enfant terrible designer was going for with his Fall 2015 collection, and the rigidity of this woman was mirrored in her stiff pseudo ponytail-knot hairstyle created by Redken creative consultant Guido Palau. "The look is very chic, uptown woman," he said before the show.
"Marc felt that he wanted to do something that was much more considered, not an easy, breezy look with uptown clothes and downtown hair." More specifically, it’s a ponytail with a knot sticking out. "He wanted that irreverence." Palau used Redken’s Guts 10 Volume Spray Foam as his foundation product. Hair is then blow dried in the opposite direction to create that
super sleek pulled-forward pony. "It’s much for complicated to get it super clean because you’re pushing the hair a way it doesn’t want to go." Which is pretty emblematic of the uptown ’40s sophisticate: perpetually chic, regardless of circumstance. "These characters are grand ladies who were very pulled together, there’s not an accident in this woman’s idea of her beauty," he described. "A lot of the time we talk a lot about slight mistakes and ease of a look, and there’s nothing about that in this lady tonight."

He kept skin super matte and velvety, contrasted with a strongly defined brow. The smudgy berry lip was inspired by Diana Vreeland’s freehand application–probably the only slip of imperfection in this woman. He then used a combo of grey and taupe eye shadow, and washed over lids with a smear of Vaseline for a high-shine look. ‘I just wouldn’t use as much of it at home," Nars adds, laughing. Leave that for the runway–or sophisticate unconcerned with midday eye shadow creasing.
