Yigal Azrouël Spring 2014
When James Pecis for Bumble and Bumble tells you that you can style your hair without a hairbrush, you listen. And backstage at Yigal Azrouël's Spring 2014 show, that's exactly what was happening. The ethereal, wispy chignons he was twisting backstage were created by raking the hair back with fingers and matting the hair down at the crown — no brush needed. "It's hard because we're trained to do perfection, and it's hard to break that habit, but I don't want to see any lines," Pecis said. "One of the girls looked too smooth, and it's better when you smash the hair together, so we had to fix her."
Lucia Pica for Kevyn Aucoin focused on the skin for the makeup look. After each model was prepped with a hyperbaric oxygen minifacial, courtesy of Intraceuticals, Pica got to work with the makeup: glossy eyes, luminous skin, and a matte nude lip. The nails were a new take on the French — a nude base with a thin black tip, covered with a matte top coat.
