New Couple Alert: Wang and Nars

Alexander Wang Fall 2012

New season, new makeup: it's just been announced that Nars will sponsor Alexander Wang's spring 2013 collection show this September. The designer's frequent collaborator Diane Kendal will reprise her role as lead artist backstage, but only time will tell whether or not she'll deviate from the strong-brow-bare-skin combo that's become something of a signature for the resolutely cool 'Alexander Wang girl.' Speaking of cool, it bears mentioning that Wang is also aligning with Marc Jacobs' longtime show partner (Nars founder François Nars), underscoring the undeniable similarities between Wang's career path and that of the reigning king of New York fashion. Birds of a feather...

    OHHHHH - me likes the eyebrows. I stopped plucking mine several years ago. They mostly grew back although, I have patches of skin. Perhaps, ITG could post some makeupartist tutorial on eyebrow filling and getting the "bare" face for the requisite "Alexander Wang" look? I can't fill my eyebrows.

    To be perfectly honest, I wasn't paying attention very well this morning as I clicked over to ITG.
    All I saw was New Couple.
    And then the photo of Jac and Frida popped up.

    I may or may not have spit some water out...Shhhh that's our little secret okay? ;)

    Then I read the entire post title and all the text.
    Nars and Alexander Wang sounds amazing!
    Alexander Wang makes the coolest downtown chic rockerish clothes and Nars has some seriously gorgeous makeup. Even though I'm not lucky enough to own either (sadface), I've heard tons and tons of people raving about them.
    I can't wait to see how things work out!
    Wouldn't it be so cool to see the strong brows paired with insanely awesome Nars blush or something? That would contrast with all of the black and white clothes really well, thus emphasizing both more.
    Or maybe that's just my silly thinking.

    Whatever the case may be, I can't wait to see what this new couple produces! :)
