New York Fashion Week: Marc Jacobs Fall 2015 Hair & Makeup


The hair and makeup looks displayed at Marc Jacobs’ Fall 2015 collection at New York Fashion Week had a total futuristic feel to them, but the bold lip colors and topknot hairstyles felt vaguely familiar. Why? Because even though all of the elements combined gave off a space-age vibe, the beauty looks from the NARS makeup artists and Redken hair team were all inspired by decades past

“Marc wanted a very strong, elegant and sophisticated woman this season – a Diana Vreeland type,” NARS founder François Nars said in a press release of his beauty collaboration with the designer. “I looked to the swans of the 50’s and 60’s – like Babe Paley or Jacqueline de Ribes, to inspire the look. Matte skin and a defined brow bring a nice structure to the face, balancing the greige gloss of the lid with the matte, velvety eggplant color of the lip.”

The hairstyles had similar multi-generational inspiration to them as well!

“The look is very chic and uptown,” Redken’s Guido Palau said of the collection’s topknot hairstyles. “Marc was talking about a very put-together woman—not easy breezy, you know—wearing uptown clothes, but downtown hair. We talked about Edith Sitwell and Diana Vreeland a lot. Their look wasn’t an accident. A lot of the times, we talk about slight mistakes or the ease of it—there’s nothing about that in this lady tonight. The hair is slightly ‘40s and ‘70s. It has a dual-era to it.” We love how there’s a huge blend of retro inspirations all at work for the collection.

  1. These looks are great for the runway, but I would think hard to pull off in real life.
