Our favorite beauty looks from fall 2011 fashion week

Well, another fashion week has come and gone. And, as is
always the case, some hair and makeup looks were true standouts! Check out some
of our favorites.

Hairstylist Peter Gray for Redken was inspired by Uma
Thurman in Pulp Fiction when he decided to cut black wigs into sharp,
angled bobs. But the real treat came when he sprayed them gold and laid a lace
inset into the middle, creating one of the coolest, most unique looks we have
yet to see on the runway. “I’ve done so much hairdressing in all the shows that
I sort of lost my roots,” Gray told us backstage. “I started at Sassoon, so I
thought it would be nice to come back to it.” (And, okay, it doesn’t hurt that
we LOVE Peter Gray.)

A mix of influences—Diana Vreeland, the 1930’s and the
Duchess of Windsor—contributed to James Kaliardos for M.A.C’s
inspiration behind the makeup look here. He went for a more masculine look to
contrast the femininity and sophistication of the clothing, bringing in camels
and dusty roses and strengthening the brows with a camel hue. “The shape is
strong, but the color is soft,” he told us.

If you like Manolos, then you’ll love the custom tips Wanda
Ruiz for CND
created at this show! There were two versions of Manolo
Manicures—Blacktrack with Airdry top coat, or Putty with Blacktrack “smile
lines,” as Ruiz called them. We’ll most certainly be trying out these nails
come fall.
