Valentino Haute Couture, Fall 2014

Guido Palau said the inspiration for the Valentino couture show’s beauty look was “Ophelia, water, shine, waves, pre-Raphaelite.”

To wit, he crafted an undulating movement in models’ tresses then used Redken Shine Flash 02 Glistening Mist for a wet look. “The girls were to be serenely beautiful,” continued makeup artist Pat McGrath, who also called them “very ethereal.”

She paled down models’ eyelids and brows. On skin, McGrath used highlighting and contouring products. “It’s as if her features look like a sketch, a drawing — almost like an incredible statue,” said McGrath. │ via WWD

Chanel Haute Couture, Fall 2014

Everything was intricately embroidered or boasted sequins or crystals – across bodices, or jackets, smatterings of gold climbing up hems or clustering at collars, dancing around necklines and straps. The level of fabrication perfectly showed off the special couture skills that this house has at its disposal and it was a delight to see on display.

For cocktail attire there came a strong focus on trapeze shapes, gentle A-lines for skirts and dresses that spanned a palette of smoky greys (mimicked also in the make-up tones), off-white, pale gold, navy and black. Bags were like satchels and though used sparingly made for another clever modern note.

And while there won’t be a woman out there who wouldn’t not dream of stepping out in one of those serious gowns to end, we can’t help but know the real story here will end up being those flip-flop-style flats. Comfortable couture. │ via Vogue
