Lela Rose’s Fall 2011 collection debuted yesterday, and, in keeping with the line’s ladylike style, Rose sent a mix of pale floaty fabrics down the runway alongside bolder, sharper prints. But we were even more inspired by the hair and makeup: vixen lips, clean skin, and 40s-era hair made for a vintage glam look that we’ll surely want to mimic next fall, if not before. We checked in backstage, where Ted Gibson hairstylists and Stila makeup artists shared the look’s key products.
Makeup artists kept models’ skin clean and dewy with Stila Sheer Color Tinted Moisturizer ($34), creating a perfect canvas for the scene-stealing bold lip.
The inspiration behind the makeup was “sexy siren,” and Stila’s Long Wear Lip Color in Darling ($20), a plum wine shade, evoked the moody glamour perfectly.
Skin was topped off with Stila All Over Shimmer Liquid Luminizer ($22), giving the models an otherwordly glow. And even just a smidge on cheekbones brings them out– ideal for even non-models looking for some sheen.
Hairstylists at Lela Rose aimed to create a look that was old-Hollywood glam with a modern spin. After spraying Ted Gibson Beautiful Hold Hairspray ($19.95) on curls, stylists brushed models’ hair out, and pinned it in place.
Ted Gibson Tame It Shine Lotion ($19.95) was also added along the parts in the models’ hair to prevent flyaways and tame frizz. This is a product that will sure to come in handy in those humid summer months, so we’re stockpiling come spring.
