10 Most Unusual Hair and Makeup Looks 2015

We love looking back on out-of-this-world beauty ideas from the fashion houses, especially because we do not cover it as much as the fashion looks themselves. While they are less common than eccentric outfits, totally crazy hair and makeup was very much in vogue on the catwalk during the fashion weeks in London, Paris, New York and Milan. Along with the AFP, we brought together some of the most unusual looks of 2015, which includes some of the usual suspects (hello Gareth Pugh and Rick Owens).


Marko Mitanovski

You might call this one an alternate look for the X-Men’s White Queen or white-on-white crime… The Serbian designer went for a 100% white look for both face and hands – London Fashion Week fall-winter 2015-2016.


Gareth Pugh

This British designer appears twice on this list and this look is the more conservative of the two choices, believe it or not. Gareth Pugh called upon an army of warrior models for his show. They strode down the catwalk with a large red cross painted on their faces, symbolizing Saint George’s Cross which is depicted on the English flag – London Fashion Week fall-winter 2015-2016.


Maison Margiela

Fashion insiders may be surprised by the appearance of this house, led today by fallen angel John Galliano, which typically avoids calling attention to personalities and models. For its fall-winter show, Maison Margiela hesitated between a dark, shady look and highly colorful makeup, as seen here in the form of broad brush strokes in fluorescent shades – Paris Fashion Week fall-winter 2015-2016.


Rick Owens

The American designer is famous this year for making the models themselves wearable – perhaps a commentary on wearable tech – and sending them down the runway as accessories for other models. We find this particular look quite arresting and it totally slipped past most observers who were understandably distracted by the aforementioned stunt. For the Paris Fashion Week fall-winter 2015-2016 show, Rick Owens opted for futuristic makeup, covering faces in gold flakes, which is delightfully festive.


Jeremy Scott

The People’s Designer got a lot of press this year, thanks to a feature-length documentary but the Missouri-born designer also had some notable moments on the runway. Bright orange lips and a retro look for eyes – and hair – at the Jeremy Scott show turned heads at New York Fashion Week spring-summer 2016. Also, Gigi Hadid…


Vivienne Westwood

The original queen of punk fashion remains an unstoppable fashion-forward force. She also seems to be channeling urban warrior aesthetics (like Pugh), going with ultra-wide smokey eyes, at London Fashion Week spring-summer 2016.


Gareth Pugh

Speaking of whom, here he is again. Pugh opts for an exaggerated look with this half-clown half-disco make-up that is almost unreal at the London Fashion Week spring-summer 2016. Seriously, we are not even sure if this model is a real person…



At Missoni, the eye makeup could not be accused of subtlety as it took the form of a brightly colored extra-wide line from the lashes to the brow line. This was seen at the Milan Fashion Week spring-summer 2016.


Olympia Le Tan

The French designer is known for her literary inspirations and we would like to know what book or books inspired what is seen here, from Paris Fashion Week spring-summer 2016. Red was dotted around the outer corners of the models’ eyes and combined with a scarlet lip or a mask.


Issey Miyake

Another one of the original fashion forward mavericks, Miyake retains his ability to push boundaries. Colored prints that looked like tattoos decorated the models’ faces at the Issey Miyake show at Paris Fashion Week spring-summer 2016. Perhaps this was yet another look inspired by either an impending zombie apocalypse or urban tribal warfare.

Louis Vuitton Resorts to Rio for Cruise

The world’s major fashion houses do like to put on a good show, as seen every year at Chanel for example (including one right we attended in Singapore). Next year, Chanel is going Cruising in Havana, Cuba (we wonder what Fidel thinks of that) while Louis Vuitton will be showing the Cruise collection in Rio de Janeiro. Women’s Wear Daily reports that the Nicolas Ghesquière-helmed brand has selected the city of Christ the Redeemer for the 2017 Resort collection. In a non sequitur of sorts, the original AFP story we drew this information from cited Louis Vuitton as an Italian brand; AFP is course a French wire service. In any case, the service also reports that Gucci is going fully Occidental for its fun-in-the-sun show, heading to London of all places. Gucci, incidentally is an Italian brand, but under French ownership via the Kering Group.

Tom Ford Menswear Catwalk show set for London Debut

British fashion gets a boost in January 2016 with the inclusion of the first full Tom Ford catwalk show at London Collections Men.

The designer is one of the many top brands registered to showcase their Autumn/Winter 2016 collections at the prestigious fashion event next year. The event combines designer showrooms by some of the UK capital’s top menswear talent with runway shows, covering both ready-to-wear and accessories.

A provisional schedule released by the British Fashion Council reveals that heavy hitters Alexander McQueen and Burberry will also be hitting the runway. Other highlights will include shows by returning brands Moschino and Pringle of Scotland, while J.W. Anderson and BFC/GQ Designer Menswear Fund winner E. Tautz will also host catwalk shows.

London Collections Men marks the first time that Ford has put on a show for his menswear collection anywhere in the world, breaking his established pattern of showing new collections via private presentations.

Hardy Amies, Paul Smith and Richard James are among the brands displaying their luxuriously tailored collections via presentations.

London Collections Men will also feature the BFC Newgen Men initiative, which shines the spotlight on the city’s emerging design talents. Agi & Sam, Bobby Abley, Craig Green, Liam Hodges and Nasir Mazhar will host a catwalk show, while Alex Mullins, Cottweiler and Pieter will all hold presentations.

Launched in 2012, London Collections Men is a biannual event focusing solely on British men’s fashion. This season’s show will run from January 8-11, 2016. The final schedule will be announced on December 7.

Runway Revisit: 10 Trends for Fall/Winter 2015/16

The Fall/Winter 2015/2016 shows seem so long ago but since winter is coming, we thought we would revisit the top trends. Among the many fabrics, colors, cuts, motifs and inspirations seen on the runways, what are the essential fashion items of the season? Which accessories should take pride of place in your closet and in particular, what items should be banned from your wardrobe? These are the pressing questions facing fashionistas in the northern hemisphere as the big chill looms…

Coats take on a longer dimension

Vests and bomber jackets are to be kept on hand throughout the upcoming months, though long and even extra-long coats (as seen at Lanvin above) are essential seasonal pieces this year. In terms of fabrics, leather, sheepskin and faux fur dominated designer collections. The color palette includes black and red with various vibrant shades and a large selection of motifs. As seen profusely in the fashion shows, hooded coats and jackets are a definite wardrobe staple.

Leather is chic

Winter 2015 will exude a very sixties vibe with, in particular, the return of leather to the fashion scene, both chic and very rock’n’roll. The noble material is used on every wardrobe piece from dresses and skirts to coats and tops. The season calls for classic colors like black (as seen at Hermès below) and camel hues as well as a vibrant array of bright shades.

Immaculate white

Though the winter color palette is generally darker in tone, this year white was at the heart of a number of collections. An all-white ensemble gives a refined, fresh and chic look to any silhouette.

Other color trends to note are a return to red, as seen at Hermès, Alexander McQueen, Elie Saab, Christian Dior, John Galliano, Shiatzy Chen, Iris van Herpen, and Valentino. Beige – running to nude – also figures prominently, with some lovely shades on show at Chloe (of course), Nina Ricci, Alexander McQueen and Allude. The AFP also found violet hard at work at Moon Young Hee, Chanel, John Galliano, Kenzo, Issey Miyake and Emporio Armani. Finally, touches of yellow and orange found their way into the shows at seen at Kenzo and Miu Miu in particular, but also at Louis Vuitton, Shiatzy Chen, Valentin Yudashkin, Vanessa Seward, Esteban Cortazar, Akris, Céline, Givenchy, and Rochas.

Often associated with summer festivals, and in definite supply on the spring/summer 2015 runway shows, fringe is a key detail this season, as seen above at Burberry Prorsum. Dresses, skirts and coats are all embellished with fringe for an edgy bohemian-chic take on winter.

The cape

A big hit last winter, capes (seen above at Chloe) move to the top of the winter must-haves this year. Whether in block color or printed material, they add a retro touch to any outfit and can be worn over a dress or pants.

Quilted details

The fall/winter collections of 2015 ooze a decidedly retro spirit with a strong presence of quilted pieces.  A signature detail of the Chanel fashion house, quilted details, in particular on bags, vests and dresses, are a definite fashion “do” this winter. The possibilities with this trend are endless and include very avant-garde interpretations.

Sleeveless trend

Once relegated to the darkest corner of your closet, puffer jackets, gilets and sleeveless quilted vests are back in the limelight. Dresses are preferably sleeveless or made from completely different materials, playing on contrasts. Some designers have even created removable sleeves on a number of items.

Much more subtle this season, transparent details remain a key trend for a sensual and sexy style. Not to be used extravagantly, discreet touches are all that is needed to convey sensuality. Opt for transparent details in dark fabrics with a focus on the arms, back, thighs and bust.

High-waisted elements

For fall/winter 2015, the waist is showcased for a sophisticated and ever-so-retro look. All major pieces are cut with a high-waist including suit pants, skirts and dresses. The waist is often embellished with a belt, either wide or narrow.

The names and logos of fashion labels appear in XXL lettering on even the most sophisticated ensembles, oftentimes in bright eye-popping colors for better visibility and “wow” factor. The trend should without a doubt continue into the coming season.

Lady Gaga in Tom Ford Spring 2016 Collection Video

Fashion designer turned film director Tom Ford released a runway music video featuring Lady Gaga Friday to showcase his new spring 2016 collection.

Lady Gaga is set to star in Tom Ford’s new Spring / Summer 2016 video.

The pop star will feature in a runway film shot by the acclaimed fashion photographer Nick Knight that shows off the designer’s new collection, WWD reports. The film will be unveiled online later today.

The news follows speculation that Ford would not show the new collection officially, having declined to reserve a runway spot at any of the major Spring / Summer 2016 ready-to-wear fashion weeks.

“Instead of having a traditional show this season, I decided to try something new,” he told the publication. “I wanted to think about how to present a collection in a cinematic way that was designed from its inception to be presented online.”

Ralph Lauren Fall 2015 Fashion Show

 joins forces with live-streaming app Periscope to show off the Ralph Lauren Collection show in London, live from New York.

As models strut the catwalk at Skylight Clarkson Square in Manhattan, Londoners will be able to watch the spring 2016 show as they pass through Piccadilly Circus, where the show will be projected on a screen, according to Women’s Wear Daily.

POLO RALPH LAUREN Children's Fashion Show

Inside Ralph Lauren’s Children’s Show

POLO RALPH LAUREN Children's Fashion Show

 put on a dreamlike show for his childrenswear Fall 2015 Polo collection in New York this week.

Central Park Zoo was transformed into a “Neverland” inspired, adventure-themed wonderland for the event, which saw “Pan” actor Levi Miller walking the runway as the fashion house’s new childrenswear ambassador.

Other rising stars on the catwalk included celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe’s son Skyler and “Dance Moms” sensations Maddie and Mackenzie Ziegler.

Levi Miller

Showcasing standout looks from the Fall 2015 Polo Ralph Lauren Children’s collection for girls and boys, the emphasis was on preppy American pieces such as herringbone blazers, relaxed sweaters, hoodies and cute beanie hats. Stripes, plaids, cozy layers and city-inspired silhouettes were all on show, with key pieces for boys including sporty styles like jogger pants and vintage-style baseball jackets, while feminine dresses, tartan and leather moto pieces are in vogue for the girls.

Miller made his debut in the Fall 2015 Polo Ralph Lauren Children’s campaign, which was inspired by the upcoming Warner Bros. movie “Pan,” based on the origins of Peter Pan’s life in Neverland.

The young actor was chosen for his “spirit of adventure and whimsy” and the campaign, shot by fashion photographer Matt Jones on the 1911 Peking ship in New York City, reflects this. It will be featured in advertising, window displays, in-store events and videos next season.

The show also honored the one-year anniversary of the Ralph Lauren Children’s Literacy program, which has seen 100,000 Scholastic books donated to Reach Out and Read in the US over the past 12 months.

Inside the Chanel Couture casino


Karl Lagerfeld took a gamble on his  Autumn/Winter 2015 couture collection Thursday in Paris.

The fashion magnate transformed the Grand Palais into an opulent casino for the event, with stars including Kristen Stewart, Julianne Moore and G-Dragon crowding around the blackjack tables to check out the show.

And they were treated to quite a spectacle — Lagerfeld dressed his models up as Twenties starlets, with short and severe flapper girl hair and theatrical makeup in the form of bold, straight brows and deep red lips.

The boxy aesthetic also ran through the collection — particularly regarding the indispensable two-piece suits, which featured straight lines and top-heavy forms. Shoulders were emphasized with bulky jackets while collars were kept wide or high and military.

Utilitarianism was also evident in the outsized woollen jackets with deep pockets and large, contrasting lapels, while skirts were generally worn narrow and to the knee in a conservative fashion.

There was of course quilting (or faux quilting), and lots of it, with the French house’s signature look being given a freshening up through the use of iridescent, metallic and semi-transparent mesh fabrics. Leather collars and shiny trims added pizzazz to the classic Chanel statement.

“The idea was to take the most iconic jacket from the 20th century and create a 21st century version, which technically wasn’t even imaginable at the time it came about,” the designer explained.

Empire waistlines, beading and tulle ruffling gave a lightness of touch to the collection’s dresses, although the shapes were definitively structured. Sequins, feathers, pearls and semi-sheer overlays added drama to the look while retaining an understated sophistication.

Chanel Couture casino Kendall Jenner

The highlight of the show came at the end, when Kendall Jenner stepped out in full “military bride” regalia in the form of a silk cream tailored trouser suit and veil.

AW15HC Karl Lagerfeld

Lagerfeld also used the show to present jackets made entirely from a singular piece of fabric using a new 3D technique called ‘Selective Laser Sintering’ for the aforementioned ‘faux quilting’ effect, proving that though it might have looked like a collection inspired by the glamorous heyday of the bygone times, Chanel’s creative vision is rooted firmly in the future.

On Monday, May 11, Dior presented its Cruise 2016 collection just outside of Cannes, at Pierre Cardin’s Palais Bulles.

Modern fabrics and an emphasis on plaids are among the defining characteristics of the new line. Between the looks unveiled and the venue, against the backdrop of the Mediterranean Sea, the show gave the guests an impression of freshness and lightness.

The choice of location is significant, as the collection reflects the spirit of the French Riviera, namely in its colors and textures. Simons emphasized shimmer and contrasting textures, along with layering effects, while maintaining an overall tone of breeziness and modernity.

The collection was dominated by blouses, wide-legged pants, short skirts and a modern take on the iconic Dior Bar Suit. Very summery, the dresses have elements of 1960s style but remain contemporary.

Patterns, and especially plaids, were seen throughout the show, often with metallic effects. In terms of colors, black and white were fairly present, along with shades inspired by the landscapes of the Côte d’Azur — namely blues, reds, pinks and browns.

Held two days before the opening of the Cannes Film Festival, the show was attended by several celebrities, including French actress and Dior spokesmodel Marion Cotillard, as well as Cressida Bonas, Zoë Kravitz, Dakota Fanning and, of course, Pierre Cardin.

The darlings of the fashion world gathered in Palm Springs, California, on Wednesday for the Louis Vuitton Cruise Collection 2015 sunset show.

And what a show it was: Creative Director Nicolas Ghesquière presented a playful, dramatic and yet sophisticated collection in which vintage glamour was given a modern edge.

The show opened with fluid maxi skirts and dresses and flowing blouses cut drastically across the midriff by large studded leather belts and buckles.

Leather paneling and zip details leant gravitas to the pretty floral or nautical fabric prints. Silhouettes were kept loose and materials luxe, with silk featuring heavily throughout.

The colors were intense and saturated, with quilted housecoats in plush reds and dreamy lilac tones thrown into the mix with bottle green motorbike jackets and a tangerine studded flared jumpsuit.

Tailored trousers in taupes, whites and beiges added a classic sophistication to the look but were livened up with patchwork suede coats or sequined color-block jackets.

The real playfulness was in the detailing, from using studs to create shape for dresses and blouses to beaded fringing on tops and lots of zips.

Flower motif cut-outs on stiff leather dresses and ruffled collars also made an appearance.

Though the silhouettes were considered and balanced and the craftwork impeccable, this was a collection that underlined the joy of travel.

Chanel Cruise Collection Seoul

Chanel shows Cruise collection in Seoul [VIDEO]

Karl Lagerfeld was in Seoul this week to unveil the Chanel’s Cruise 2015/16 collection — a kaleidoscopic vision of color and pattern inspired by the K-pop trend sweeping the West at the moment.

Describing the collection as a “modern version of the pop art scene,” Lagerfeld said he was inspired by Korean traditions but wanted to adapt them for the world of today.

“I love the proportions of the dresses, and even the fibres,” he explained at the show. “We had some made here because the fibres don’t exist.”

He also revealed that one of his fabric designers at Chanel is Korean and that her friends and K-pop singers regularly visit the fashion house.

He concluded: “The modernity of Korea was something I was used to as an idea, but I wanted to see the reality.”

The cruise runway featured cute summer dresses, skirts and tops in bold geometric striped prints, as well as trousers and dust jackets. Structures were kept loose, floaty and playful, with the wigs adding to the sense of fun.

Of course it wouldn’t be Chanel without tweeds, and the house sent plenty of those down the catwalk too. Pastel greens, candy pinks and rich purples gave life to jacket and skirt combos, while a turquoise and black houndstooth check made one look pop.

Korea’s influence was evident throughout the collection, from a cream and bubblegum pink confection worn by Barbara Palvin to a cobalt blue jacket teamed with black mini shorts modeled by Georgia Hilmer.

Lace fingerless gloves, sixties sunglasses and knee-high socks were all added into the mix.

The show, held on the same date as the Met gala in New York, attracted a star-studded audience including Kristen Stewart, Gisele Bündchen and Tilda Swinton.
