Kenzo Fall 2011


Tom Pecheux (MAC): The makeup is very sophisticated but also very moody and emotional. The inspiration came from artist women like Georgia O'Keeffe, Frida Kahlo—their art was very strong, very powerful, but so were their personalities. So we're doing a very strong eyebrow—like Frida Kahlo—but without the unibrow! And we're doing a grey/green military color cream eyeshadow, applied with the finger, very smudgy; we're  using this same technique with a very violet lip pencil on the mouth—MAC's Borderline—almost like a stain. When the lip or the nail is perfectly done, it can completely change your attitude—this look is a little more loose, more relaxed.

Eugene Souleiman: The hair is pulled away from the face in a very boyish way—like a traditional man's hairstyle, and the back is a complete contrast to the front—very feminine, a little Mexican, and some of the girls have flowers. They look quite handsome from the front...that's kind of the feeling around at the moment, I think.

    I am from Angola and I have written before.
    I would just like to say that I like what you do with your blog.
    It is nice to know the story behind the hair and the make up, to know how and why the look came about. Frida Kahlo and Georgia O'keeffe were not only great and strong women but strong artists as well and always inspiring.

    I love those braids- simple in the front and the back reminds me of the infinity symbol.

    Tom Pecheux did it again. He absolutely captured the look of Frida Kahlo, such a strong, edgy makeup look. I love the purple stained effect he achieved with the lip pencil. Very modern and fresh, a universally flattering color as well. I love the braided hairstyles as well.

    What no uni-brow? Then why bother? I'm totally kidding!

    What a great inspiration - now I need to see this collection to see it all tied together.
