Paris Fashion Week Fall 2013: “Handsome” beauty at Chloé

The backstage tents for the Chloe show may have been a swarming hot mess, but the beauty look for fall was sophisticated, controlled and didn’t involve a single person elbowing you in the kidneys. High five.

The beauty look for Chloé Fall 2013.

Hair stylist Anthony Turner created low slung, simple pony tails with side parts. While getting jostled by camera crews and international media, he told me he felt the beauty focus was a slight departure for the design house. "It’s a little bit different to what I think of as the ideal Chloe woman, which to me is this soft, very natural feeling," he said. "This season she’s a bit stronger. Words like androgyny, strength, power — that’s where we were heading." Turner used Tigi Root Boost to prep hair and then finished with old school Black & White hair pomade. "It’s boyish hair on a girl," he said, admitting he enjoyed the idea of using men’s products to create the sleek style.

Diane Kendal for MAC Cosmetics described the makeup as being "very handsome" and took the girl/boy inspiration mentioned by Turner a step further, squaring out the brows "in a boyish shape" and using very minimal makeup – a light coverage foundation, and a light sweep of MAC Tenderline Blush on the natural contour of the cheek.
