09.09.07 FACING THE DAY: CRAZY EYES THE LOOK IS GRAPHIC AND SURREAL AT RODARTE.
I woke up the morning I was meeting Kate and Laura from Rodarte with this wild, Surrealist dream in my head. I dreamt of this makeup with flying lines and a floating eyeball in the center. Jean Cocteau meets punk and ballet. Being the rebel-loving girls they are, Kate and Laura decided to go with my dream. They had been thinking of a graphic lined look already, so we were in sync. It is rare when the hair and makeup can both be so strong and work so well with a collection. One of us usually has to compromise. Hair sculptor Odile Gilbert made a tight ponytail with long, hand-colored extentions that degraded up to the natural color of each girls hair. The effect was magical and very cool. The hundred-degree room surprisingly didn't melt the makup or the reaction of the crowd. The collection was sweet. This was my favorite.
Thank you for the pics! They're beautiful. I see eyelashes taking a back seat if not completely absent in a lot of shows. That is bad news for me since my lashes are naturally short so I wear tons of mascara always so my eyes don't disappear. Kind of interesting trend considering all those mega falsies and feathered falsies...
Good things come to those who shop.
