I know, I know. I’ve been waxing profuse about spring, warm weather, bright pastels and must-have khaki for the past weeks as we put our spring print issue to bed. (And it’s a good one — subscribe now to get it on time in March!)
But now I have to shift gears and think seven months ahead, otherwise known as fall fashion for 2010, as I’m getting ready to put away fall fashion 2009. Thankfully, the looks coming out of New York Fashion Week last week are inspiring and oh-so wearable.
Your first preview into the looks you’re going to covet in six months comes from backstage at the Derek Lam fall 2010 show. Estée Lauder’s Tom Pecheux did the makeup and shared his looks for the models with us.
I love the sapphire, gold and bronze palette, a moodier update of the pastel clash seen on models in Lam’s spring show. As you can see, it looks fabulous on monolidded model of the moment Liu Wen.
For those of you who want to try out this look, here’s the face chart. (And like with all runway beauty looks, just tone it down a bit for real life application.)
