Marc Jacobs' Beauty Look—And Siri Tollerød's Take.
Four hours before Marc Jacobs' 8 PM show and the backstage area was already a whirlwind of activity—Guido, Redken's creative consultant, was particularly busy: His team had to craft several different "high-maintenance" hairstyles on 60 models. "There are lots of hairdos—I'm in a major rush," he said. "There are four looks, all based in the '70s and '30s—finger waves and frizz all side-parted with lovely big hats and flowers in the hair. It's wavy and glamorous."
Makeup was equally captivating: "We're going for a '70s glam look inspired by girls like Anjelica Huston, Donna Mitchell, and Pat Cleveland," said François Nars, who tempered the olive "high-gloss eye" and chocolate-purple lip with sheer skin ("Its transparency gives the face a modern touch and doesn't make the makeup appear too heavy").
So what does model Siri Tollerød (pictured above right) think of the bold hair-and-makeup combo? "It's fun! I feel very chic wearing it," she says, though she admits she'd tweak the look for real-life. "If I wore the hairstyle I wouldn't wear any makeup with it because it would feel like, va-voom, here I am! If I just did the makeup, I'd probably make the eyes and lips less dark."
As her reinterpretation of Jacobs' beauty look suggests, Tollerød likes to keep things simple off the runway. In between hair appointments with Larry Raspanti at Whittemore House salon in NYC she says she typically just wears a ponytail. Makeup-wise, Tollerød prefers moisturizer, concealer, whatever lip color she's "feeling like for the day," and mascara. "I always wear mascara," she says. "I really love Maybelline Full 'n Soft."
