Love It or Hate It? Tight 'Tails and Nude Faces at Josh Goot

Love It or Hate It? Tight 'Tails and Nude Faces at Josh Goot

Greetings from New York Fashion Week, everyone! The shows officially started this morning, but a few designers went ahead of the crowd and showed last night. You should have seen Fab at last night's Josh Goot show—she is just crazy for his dresses.

While Fab made notes on the clothes, I was eyeing the slicked-back hair and low-key makeup. Stylist Alan White for Goldwell wrapped tight ponytails with silver, and MAC makeup artist Philippe Chansel gave the models matte, natural faces. (He used Micronized Airbrush Foundation without the airbrush, and MAC Lip Erase to take down the lip color.) But what really got me excited was the soft silver powder on the backs of the models' necks—totally unexpected and absolutely fitting for Goot's modern-girl dresses. What do you think of it?

yes and how else should one look for a workout?

That style of hair really accentuates skinniness, and I have always liked it for that.

Sorry...what was the question? I just can't take my eyes off the thing on the model's neck! Bruise? Birth mark? Hickey? What?

Oh, forgot to mention how silly the powder on the back of the neck is. Dandruff gone wild?

Fresh, natural faces are great, but the tight ponytail is not. A looser one would carry the natural look better...

the concept is really awesome, i think her ponytail is so tight, she has tiny little horns popping on her forehead. i love the natural look though!

The model does leave a lot to be desired... don't care for the look either..

Call me crazy but I really don't see the point, be it practical or esthetical, of powdering the back of your neck.

I personally think that this is way too harsh looking for my taste. If the top were looser and the tail had some wave to it then it would probably be cute.

she looks like she makes methamphetamine in a trailer somewhere.

This particular shot looks unhealthy and greasy. I think it could be done in a cool way.

I think the problem is that in this tight tail her hair looks dirty/greasy. And maybe a light foundation like a mineral one would help her skin glow. And finally the tail looks undone, it should have been styled a little bit.

I imagine the idea behind this look was to keep the focus on the clothes, not the faces. I didn't find it appealing at all, but it did get the job done.

I guess they wanted the clothes to be the main and only focus, but they could have least put a soft matte pink lipstick on the almost bare look!

Not a fan of tight, almost croydon facelift, ponytails.

The look wouldn't be so bad but the model doesn't have the face or the hair to pull it off.
