2013 Fall NYFW: Embellish a Boring Bun With a Touch of Velvet à la Monique Lhuillier
For Fall 2013, Monique Lhuillier requested art deco elements for hair and makeup. This translated into a severe shadow shape in the blackest-black hue. And for the hair, lead stylist Odile Gilbert chose a velvet-wrapped chignon that complemented the intensity of the deep, angular eye look.
The look: Structured chignons, graphic eye makeup, and gunmetal nails.
The inspiration: Art deco.
Colour scheme: Black, grey, and dark green.
