Beauty according to Dries

The beautiful clothes weren't the only thing I loved about the Dries Van Noten fall/winter 2010 ready-to-wear show in Paris. I was also very drawn to the almost nude make-up look Peter Philips (who else?) did on the models. The collection itself was a very modern one, for a busy woman who is always on the go. Peter probably thought is was logical to not give her a really busy make-up look that would take too long to achieve and instead he gave her a gorgeous complexion that is almost luminous. Fresh-faced beauty.

He also gave the models a really defined eyebrow, which gives the whole look some strength.

Hair was also kept really natural, really realistic. Slightly messed up, but not scruffy. Beautiful glossy hair that doesn't take too much effort, with a beautiful side parting. Just make sure your hair is really healthy, add some serum to the ends and spritz on some (not too much) gloss.

I love fashion and I love the special vibe a really over-the-top show can give you (like almost all the shows by John Galliano for Dior), but, at the end of the day, it's much more pleasant to see a picture of a show and think "hey, I could pull that off". I really believe women want that, they want to feel like fashion is attainable and they want to feel like what the magazines are telling them feels good and comfortable to them. And that is exactly what this whole collection did for me, including the make-up look. Sigh, the Dries Van Noten girl... what a perfect girl.

5 opmerkingen:

  1. the nude make up made it so care free chic! love it!

  2. I do agree, nude makeup looks so good. It kinda makes you want to look at the clothes more instead of trying to see everything at once!

  3. I agree with you. The models looks better with natural make up, in haute couture abused too much of strident make ups and sometimes clothes lose the attention in the shows
    (sorry for my english, is not the best) Great post like always.
