Backstage Beauty: Alexander Wang Fall 2010

    Hey Glamazons! It seems that the brightly colored lips and rosy colored cheeks have taken a back seat this season as designers opt to showcase more natural looking models on their runway.
    Backstage at Alexander Wang, head makeup artist Diane Kendal (for MAC) described the inspiration for the makeup look as being Kate Moss circa the late 80's, early 90's.
    "I'm doing very fresh skin with a reddish brown grease all over the eyelid and blended up into the brow bone," she said.

    Head hairstylist Guido, Redken Creative Consultant, said that he wanted the models to have a "grungy, boyish" look. He brushed part of the hair over one eye and then literally saturated the hair with Redken's Force 23 hairspray. Then, he took a blow dryer and went over the hair again to seal in the look.

    The nails were an equally ubercool girl look. Noni Cream, founder of Butter London nail lacquer, described the look as an "opaque, sand blasted kind of look."
    "It's the traditional Alexander Wang nail," she said. "I kind of love the idea that the Alexander Wang woman doesn't subscribe so much to the seasonal catwalk and the trends. It's all about this sense of luxury. She's got this inherent expensiveness about her that's kind of sexy."
    And it doesn't look like the matte nail trend is going anywhere anytime soon since this nail was clearly very matte; in addition to looking very cool.
    "It's the new preppy," Noni said.
