Revlon Global Artistic Director, Gucci Westman, captured designer Lisa Perry’s vision of a modern girl’s take on the popular mod look of the 60’s, to complement the bright and vibrant designs of the designer’s Fall ’13 collection.

“I wanted to create a look that complimented Lisa’s clothing, something playful with strong references to the 1960’s,” says Westman. “I focused on the eyes and went for something retro. To make it a bit more contemporary and modern I opted for bright colored liners in blues and purples, rather than black and added shadow on top for an extra pop. I kept the skin simple and natural and created subtle freckles on the nose with a nude pencil.”

    Fashion Week from Lincoln Center, Fall/Winter 2013

    It’s that time of year again – Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in New York City. I won’t be going this season because my child turns 16 on Sunday, smack dab right in the middle of the week & I can’t miss that. But, have no doubt, I have told him how inconsiderate it was for him to decide to be born 3 weeks early, to conflict with MBFW 16 years from then. He should have known better. 😉

    Lincoln Center Morning

    So, I will be back here, enjoying all of the coverage online. I was happy to hear that starting tomorrow, February 7th thru February 14th, IMG Fashion has teamed up with Rightster to show a live stream from every fashion show at Lincoln Center this season. The streams will be available on the MB Fashion Week website and on their Facebook page. I’m honestly thrilled by this, since I’m going to have a better view from my couch, with my laptop, than I probably would have had inside the show. 😉

    Start looking at the schedule now to plan out your viewing strategy for the upcoming season!
