Keep it simple, keep it low-maintenance, and, when in doubt, keep it close to Kate Moss. That seemed to be the prevailing wisdom among the hair and makeup teams working on the Fall collections. But amid the minimalist maquillage, there were some flickering moments of exciting experimentation. We name the highlights.



1. smells like teen spirit

Natasha Poly


Gen Xers looking to recapture your disaffected youth, this is your year. With buzzwords like "grunge," "tomboyish," and "early nineties" playing on repeat backstage, bare faces, greasy eyes, and deconstructed bed heads were everywhere. One memorable example: the glorified comb-over Guido Palau created at Alexander Wang.

Backstage at Rag & Bone


If makeup artists weren't taking inspiration from Seattle circa '92, they were looking to another style phenom who defined that era (and every era since). "Picture Kate Moss when she wakes up," said Gucci Westman, as she used Q-tips doused in makeup remover to jostle up her liner job at Rag & Bone—a useful trick if you want the smudged, slept-in look, but not the after-effects of falling asleep with your makeup on.

Adriana Lima (MARILYN)


Not every designer had tomboys or waifs in mind. Marc Jacobs, for one, channeled a wasp-waisted Brigitte Bardot at Louis Vuitton, where Laetitia Casta, Bar Refaeli, and Adriana Lima showcased a full pout—and a full poitrine.


4. the big tease

Retro silhouettes call for retro hairstyles. Teased sixties-era beehives took the spotlight at Prada (pictured), Karl Lagerfeld, and Giles, while back-combing at the crown gave the down 'dos at Rochas and Nina Ricci that crucial height.


5. paint it red

We saw deep purple lips at Peter Som, Missoni, and Proenza Schouler and hot pink pouts at YSL. Red ruled the season, though, showing up everywhere from Hervé Léger, Prabal Gurung, and United Bamboo to Dsquared², Dolce & Gabbana, and Givenchy (pictured).
