Derek Lam Spring 2011


Tom Pecheux  (Estée Lauder): In terms of makeup, Derek always loves to play with vivid color, and we like to twist the rules—Derek for his clothes and me for the makeup, so that’s why we decided to go for a bright orange on the eyes.

Orlando Pita (T3)
: The hair is inspired by the west coast art movement of the 1960’s. Their interpretation of east coast art (which was more severe and minimalist), whereas the west coast had more sensuality and atmosphere. So we’re kind of recreating a 60’s shape with the hair—it has a little bit of a bump but we’re just doing it with our hands, we’re not teasing it or anything. It should look effortless.

    Your blog is the best in layout and appearance of the other beauty blogs I have seen, but a common problem I have with most beauty blogs is their lack of detail on the products used. People don't just want to oooo and ahhh. They want to recreate the looks for themself.
