Who: Reem Acra, the worldly go-to designer of fantasy wedding dresses and dazzling evening gowns.
When: Sunday, February 15th, 2009 at the Reem Acra showroom
Face: MAC Key Artist Polly Osmond creates a monotone face by only adding color to the eyes and lips. A taupe powder shadow is dusted on the eyelids and then brushed along the lower lash line. The taupe-outlined eyes are soft and demure.
Osmond then paints the lips a subtle pink and leaves the rest of the face bare. The outcome is a youthful and innocent look.
Hair: Acra requested “sophistication” so Laurent Philippon of Bumble and Bumble delivered it in the form of a clean side chignon. After misting Bumble and Bumble’s Styling Lotion throughout the models’ hair, Philiano creates a dramatic part by starting from the outer corner of one eye and pulls the slicked hair into a ponytail on the opposite side of the face.
The ponytail is then twisted into a tight hold, spun into a bun and then fanned out to create the oval shape. The result is a smooth, clean and red carpet worthy style.
