“The beauty look at L.A.M.B. is inspired by a trip to India,” said Maybelline’s Global Makeup Artist Charlotte Willer. “A dark, dramatically lined eye is the focal point– a modern take on kohl.” To recreate the look Charlotte created for L.A.M.B. Spring/Summer 2012, she recommends the following:
Fit Me! Powder: Charlotte eliminated shine and created natural coverage with this pressed powder. She swept a second, slightly darker shade under the cheekbones to contour and create definition. Next, she applied Fit Me! Blush in Deep Rose to the apples of the cheeks, creating a soft glow.
Eye Studio Master Drama Cream Pencil in Midnight Master: Charlotte created an exaggerated winged eye with this richly pigmented liner. She lined the outer half of the lid and the entire lower lash line. She extended the line out toward the edge of the temple and in toward the inner corner of the eye.
If I had to select another show to sit behind The Blonds at the top of my Fashion Week must-see list, It would definitely be L.A.M.B.. Not only am I a huge Gwen Stefani fan, but the show is always a rocking good time, full of shoes & handbags to covet for months. This season was no different (though it was a departure from last season’s revolving runway/presentation hybrid), with a front row full of notables like Debbie Harry, Christian Siriano, Mel B, and of course Gavin & little Kingston.
The music for the show was pumping, featuring songs from Stefani’s solo career, No Doubt, and songs/beats from Lady Saw. You might remember Lady Saw from her collaboration with No Doubt on “Underneath It All”. Her reggae influence was huge on Rock Steady and on Gwen’s style during the album’s peak of popularity. It was nice to see her give a shout-out to the Jamaican and island tribal influences that could be seen strongest in the prints of the collection.
In addition to punchy plaids, distressed leopards, and reinterpreted stripes, the collection featured a lot of head wear (a reoccurring theme from all of Spring 2011). Could a line of hats not be too far behind for either L.A.M.B. or Harajuku Lovers?
Master Stylist Danilo talks about how he created the dramatic, eye-catching hair designs for the L.A.M.B. Fall/Winter 2010 Collection. Professional argan oil-infused Moroccanoil products were layered to achieve the smooth, waved curls which were inspired by both the 30’s and 40’s as well as today’s modern glamour girl (think superstar designer Gwen Stefani).
Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream to build soft hold and smooth, frizz-free texture
Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray to set hair into tight, curled waves before brushing out
Moroccanoil Lumious Hairspray to complete the look plus Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine Spray for silky shine
CND’s Co-Founder and Style Director Jan Arnold talks about creating the Fall 2010 manicure looks backstage for the Fall/Winter 2010 L.A.M.B. runway show.The 30’s inspired Urban-glam inspiration led to Dark Ruby being used to compliment the deep burgundy lips.
Beauty expert Charlotte Tilbury for MAC Cosmetics talks about creating the makeup looks backstage for the L.A.M.B. Fall/Winter 2010 show. “The feeling was 1930’s prostitute,” Tilbury said in a statement. “Trampy, smoky eye, deep ‘rougeoir’ lips and beautiful pale skin.”
