SHOW: Phillip Lim SS’15
LEAD ARTIST: Francelle Daly for NARS Cosmetics
LOOK: ”My inspiration is sensuality; the way the morning lights hits you as you wake up in
your bedroom, with sensual skin beaming with rays of light. I highlighted the cheek bones, high
planes of the face and the bridge of the nose to accentuate and bring out that glow in each girl.”

SHOW: Thakoon SS’15
LEAD ARTIST: Diane Kendal for NARS Cosmetics
LOOK: ”The inspiration for the collection is the artist, Paul Gauguin. Thakoon wanted the girls
to appear as if they were coming out of water, so the beauty look is all about the gloss on the
eyelid and brushed up into the brow. Less is more.”

SHOW: Marc Jacobs SS’15
LEAD ARTIST: Francois Nars, Founder & Creative Director
LOOK: “The look for the show features no make-up – we only applied moisturizer. With Marc
we always take it to the extreme, we’ve done bold looks in the past, but this season we wanted to
make a statement by not applying anything.

This goes back to one of the looks that I’ve always loved – bare skin, nothing on the face, lips or
eye, just beautiful skin – I love makeup but I also love seeing women without makeup. To me, it’s
a great way to show fashion.  It works so well with the clothes and the hair. Who knows, maybe
next season we will go back to a full face of makeup. I love having the flexibility to do this, we are
not locked into applying makeup. I like the idea that what you see is what you get.”

and vibrant.”
