Yesterday, September 13, New York City saw some of the biggest names in fashion come together to walk the Diane Von Furstenberg runway, including our very own L'Oréal Paris ambassador Karlie Kloss! The 23-year-old model and NYU student hit New York Fashion Week alongside the likes of Kendall Jenner and Irina Shayk, styled head to toe by the designer in elegant, eye-catching prints with gorgeous voluminous curls, dramatic eye makeup and floral hair pins! Have we caught your attention? Read on for all the DVF details...
The flawless DVF models all rocked voluptuous, old Hollywood curls to bring real vintage glamour to the runway! And with all things vintage, you've got to do it the old fashioned way, so put away that curling iron and get out the rollers!
Start with damp, freshly-washed locks; create your deep side part and give your locks a dose of curl-defining mousse, focusing on the roots. Take sections of hair and wrap them around medium or small-sized rollers, winding the strands up from the tips to the roots and securing in place. Either leave your curls to dry naturally or speed up the process with a diffuser. Once dry, unwrap the curls, tease them with your fingers to get the desired volume, and fix them in place with a spritz of hairspray.
We may be moving into Fall 2015, but remember, NYFW is all about looking ahead to those spring and summer trends to come! So rather than those mulled, earthy autumnal shades, the DVF runway was filled with floating fabrics, bright prints and floral hair pins, turning the models into Hawaiian beauties ready for the beach!
Against the warm, blushing tones of the pink, purple and cream hair accessories, Karlie and Kendall were given contrasting, shimmering oceanic eyeshadow, lending their tropical looks a hint of mermaid-like mystique!
Top tip: If you want to try out a dramatic, multi-tonal eyeshadow palette like Karlie's DVF look, start with an eye primer as a base- this will fix the color in place for longer while also preventing those rich, eye-catching colors from fading.
