It's wonderful to be back in New York for Fashion Week, and for my first show of the season, I was able to step backstage into the world of designers Jeffrey Costello and Robert Tagliapietra of Costello Tagliatpetra. For their Autumn catwalk show, they drew their inspiration from the future. Using a colour palette filled with purples, blues, pinks and greens, the beauty style was a reflection of an uptight woman who is finally trying to have some fun. The makeup look was created by Maki for MAC, hair was developed by lead stylist Nelson Vercher for the Rita Hazan Salon and nails were polished by Michelle Saunders for Essie.
The look: Highly texturised hair fastened in a low ponytail, metallic purple nails and bright, matte fuchsia lips.
The inspiration: Psycho glamour, but also pretty and slightly sensual.
Who would wear it: Anyone with swagger. Think of someone like Natalie Portman who is intelligent about their beauty.
