Gottex Spring 2010 Fashion Week

This has been one of my favorite looks to date because it’s oh-so-simple and oh so sexy! In fact, I intend to copy it every single day of the summer because it’s so easy to replicate and the end result is high wattage.

First – the makeup. Philippe Chansel for MAC Cosmetics says, “It’s a 1990’s inspired supermodel look, with bronzed skin.” He used a black pencil liner for the eyes in Feline which is part of the new and upcoming Style Black collection.

He used the Sun Tints lip balm, in Full of Grace (this is an incredibly sheer, sparkling pink which looks like you’ve just spent a day in South Beach). The foundation was the Face & Body Foundation from the Hi-Def line to give “a very natural appearance to the skin,” says Chansel.

He also used a refined Golden Bronzed bronzing powder just on the apples of the cheeks and the nose so the effect looked like she just got a bit of color. He used the Melon eyeshadow to give a touch of warmth to the lids.

The hair was done by the charming Peter Gray for Cutler. “It’s all about a sleek, sexy silhoutte,” he says. “Gottex is not really swimwear, it’s not really beach wear either…it’s more of a glam wear. We liked the idea of Glamazons strutting the catwalk with glam head bands…they are like bathing suit caps.”

To create the sleek chic look, Gray used Redken Glass 01 as a lotion to blow dry the hair. He used the Sheer Straight 06 or the Power Tamer 16 as needed for finer or coarser hair to straighten it out perfectly. Redken’s products are pretty easy to follow: the lower the numbers (like Glass 01, Sheer Straight 06 etc) the finer the hair. The higher numbers (like the Power Tamer 16) are for coarser hair.

He also fastened the back of the hair with a straight sleek bit of hair and secured it with a bobby pin:

Peter demonstrated how easy this is on Michelle Mismas from “All Lacquered Up.”

  1. I loved this look too, sexy and really pulled together. I had to watch the show from the tv’s in the lobby, as I was late and SR was too packed for me – got so claustrophobic!

  2. I’m impressed, I have to say. Actually not often do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me let you know, you’ve hit the nail on the head. Your concept is outstanding; the difficulty is something that not sufficient persons are talking intelligently about. I am very joyful that I stumbled throughout this in my seek for one thing referring to this.
