Backstage Beauty: Alexander Wang SS16 Runway Show


Diane Kendal for NARS Cosmetics created the look for Alexander Wang’s SS’16 collection. “For this collection, Alex wanted to go back to the feeling and style of when he started, which was quite street.  The beauty is raw, the girls are meant to kind of look as they are, with a little bit of grooming but nothing ‘done’.”

The look was so raw that models only wore NARSskin Luminous Moisture Cream with groomed brows.


Inspired by the activewear feel of Alexander Wang’s SS’16 collection, Michelle Saunders for essie created natural nail look by layering two coats of matte about you over cocktails & coconuts. She also trimmed the nails into a short pixie shape, which added to the overall “rough and tough” aesthetic.
