Phillip Lim’s take on sportswear is unique, interesting, and functional. There was plenty to love in this collection, but some of the silhouettes he favored were not particularly flattering even on the flawless models wearing them. I loved his use & mixing of texture and colors in this collection. Functionality like the removable sleeves and such that were present in this collection is just one indicator of many that this is a collection that is well studied, yet another reason why I really respect his work and talent.
The Nars team led by Lisa Butler created a look where green eyeshadow was the focus. The skin was kept natural using only Nars concealer to neutralize any redness (as green tends to bring that out). Lips were colored with Nars lipstick in Pago Pago, a new shade slated for Fall 2011.
Cap Ferrat Trio Eyeshadow (new for summer 2011) and Delphes Trio Eyeshadow (new for fall 2011) were used along with Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliners in Rue de Rivoli and Abbey Road (both new for Fall 2011)
The models wore Creative Nail Design polish in Desert Suede, a sandy color on their nails with a navy half moon (in Midnight Sapphire).
