Radiant Spirit by NARS at Rodarte | Backstage Beauty

As our fearless editor-on-the-ground, Laura Cassidy, reported yesterday from the front row of Rodarte, Kate and Laura Mulleavy’s Spring collection was inspired by The Spirit of the Beehive, a 1970’s Spanish film with two young sisters (and their charming childlike imaginations) at the heart of the story.

To play off the youthful and dreamy vibe of the collection, James Kaliardos at NARS created a makeup look that’s fresh and radiant—but it’s not about going bare-faced. The trick is his genius combination of products to get a natural glow. Because some of these items won’t be available until February 2017, we substituted your best bets for the here-and-now.

THAT’S THE SPIRIT: HOW TO GET IT

From a Current CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Candidate to a Former—Rodarte—with Jeffrey Kalinsky

As one of the select few judges on the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund panel, Nordstrom fashion director Jeffrey Kalinsky will do his best to get to each of the finalists’ NYFW presentations. When I arrive at Jeffrey New York, his Chelsea neighborhood flagship, to meet up before the Rodarte show, I find him consulting with his assistant about the day’s schedule and making a last-minute adjustment.

Before we see the spring collection from 2006’s CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund runners-up (that was the year Rodarte sisters Kate and Laura Mulleavy were in the thick of it with Phillip Lim and the guys from rag & bone, just to name a few), we’ll stop to see Stampd. L.A.’s Chris Stamp started the line seven years ago with a feel for streetwear basics that could be beautifully crafted with impeccable materials.

New York Fashion Week Last Looks: Yesterday’s Runways at Rodarte, Narciso Rodriguez, Alice + Olivia and Tory Burch

A simple color scheme doesn’t always mean plain clothing, something demonstrated by Rodarte’s fall collection, which proved the power of texture.

Designing siblings Kate and Laura Mulleavy are prone to referencing a medley of influences, invariably taking us into a world of eccentric fantasy. This season, San Francisco, art nouveau and their golden years at Berkeley fused into a hard take on lace frills. The frenzy of embellishment began with skirts featuring ruffled piping in alternating patches of leather and Western-style sequins, while lace and mesh were worked into every form, from ’80s-style joggers to tiered bridal dresses hand-embroidered with sequined flowers. Mismatched earrings in every shape and size carried the mélange of moodiness down to the details.

Get the Look: New York Fashion Week Street Style at Rodarte

Quad4Gimlet-eyed Kristin Yamada is busy snapping street-style starlets during Fashion Week. Here are her photos to inspire you for next season (or this one), and some wardrobe picks to help you get the look.N3342_LeafGreenerELLE China’s former senior fashion editor Leaf Greener is another regular on the Fashion Week circuit. Her look today is wonderfully ladylike with a vintage vibe. Her swing coat nods to the ’50s and is simple and sweet. Pairing it with black denim, however, gives it a modern edge. Costume earrings have been making a comeback and mini bags are still steady on the scene. The only thing left to polish off this ensemble is a classic pump.

Starting off Monday’s runway shows, Tory Burch‘s latest collection took cues from beauty in unexpected places, issuing a nod to mod with some modern refinements. An abundance of embroidery, fringe and prepster smocking came as no surprise, while plunging necklines, breezy silhouettes and twists on Burch’s iconic caftan evoked beaches and blue seas. As the show progressed, the palette softened from daytime bold reds and blues to an equally at-ease iridescent pastel organza.

Street Style: Olivia Kim at Rodarte

It’s always exciting to run into our very own Olivia Kim. Olivia has incredible style, and I love her daring sartorial choices. This pastel pink coat is one of my favorites of the season. Olivia’s tulle skirt is a creative counterbalance to her heavy coat, while duck boots are the only reasonable footwear for the day. Thanks for always being such an inspiration, Olivia!

Street Style: Ramya Giangola at Rodarte

Ramya is rocking these winter layers today. I love the balance of patterns and textures in this outfit. This is a bold look, but the color palette keeps things from getting too wild. I didn’t know I needed a voluminous, cropped turtleneck sweater until now, but after seeing Ramya I must find one ASAP! Her floral skirt hints at spring, despite the snow on the ground. Those amazing zip-up booties are chic and have enough tread to be safe on the slippery streets.

Backstage Beauty: NARS for Rodarte

nyfw-aw15-backstage-beauty-NARS-Rodarte-2

“Delicate, refined beauty” were the words renowned makeup artist James Kaliardos used to describe his stunning makeup creation for NARS cosmetics at Rodarte today. We immediately noticed light literally bouncing off the model’s skin, which made us wonder—it’s the middle of winter, how is skin this pearlescent even possible? That was our first moment of wonder. The second happened when we saw the gorgeous glint coming from the models’ eyes. Being the beauty girls that we are, we flocked for a closer inspection. We were delighted to see sparkle underneath the eyes and just knew: this look was our spirit animal.
