This collection had thigh-high leg warmers, suiting with cut-outs, velvet, and backpacks and was still amazing. That is the genius of Alexander Wang. Be warned, if you hate velvet and all fabrics that fall under that umbrella then brace yourself for what is sure to be a huge trend for Fall, because it seems everything Mr. Wang touches turns to gold. I hope I’m wrong because thinking of all the knock-off velour that would infiltrate stores makes me want to cringe. I’m going to try not to think about that, instead I am going to plot ways I can get my hands on one of those beautifully draped and gathered mini dresses, the wrap style sweaters, or even a pair of those leg warmers to pair with my own chunky heels.


The look was created using M.A.C. products:
MAC Pro Cream Colour Base in Mid-tone Sepia and Paint Stick in Deep Brown – Blended together and applied to the eyelid and under the eye
MAC Studio Finish Skin Corrector in Terracotta – Dabbed into the crease of the eyelid and under the lower lash line
MAC Gloss Texture – Layered over cream colour base all over the eyelid
MAC Chromaline in Black – Lining the upper lash line and the outer corner of the eye
