Christian Dior Fall 2013 - Into The Gloss

Christian Dior Fall 2013


Pat McGrath (Dior): Today, it’s the Dior woman that we know, but a very modern take on her. For the eyes, we did metallic eye wings using wet silver eye shadow pigment [Diorshow Mono Fusion in Étoile #21], and then a beautiful matte pink lip [Rouge Dior lipstick in Darling, out in September]—the color's more concentrated on the inside of the mouth, and faded toward the outside. Otherwise, it's just about perfected skin and highlighted cheekbones, using the Skinflash Primer. It's very much a modern take, very much like 'air,' very fresh—a futuristic take on a Fifties woman.

Guido (Redken): It’s a classic Dior style, you know, slightly Fifties. I’m using the Guts 10 foam and a very generous amount of Forceful 23 hairspray to make it look wet—as if she was caught in a moment, maybe the gives the hair a filmic quality. I didn’t have an inspiration, really; it’s more about doing what’s right for Raf and what’s right for the clothing. It’s not that often anymore that a designer says that he wants the hair to reflect a certain person, like an actress. It’s really more about the DNA of the brand and being true to his kind of woman. It’s a modern woman.

    Breathtaking! I think this might be my favorite beauty of the season -- they are like '50s debs...but from a lost episode of the Twilight Zone. Love. #dontstop #getitgetit

    i'm obsessed with those "eye wings" - they look great in silver, but i'm now imagining them in opalescent white or gold... amazing!

    the makeup was such a perfect counterpoint to Raf's surreal collection for Dior. I'd love for you to check out what I thought of the clothes--potholder textiles, and Disney chiffon dresses and all:

    Loving bright lips right now!

    A new post is up on Local & Opulent - winter blahs are battled with furry stoles, margaritas and the discovery of a little slice of Paris in Toronto.

    Love the popsicle-stained lips and the strong brows. Gorgeous!
