Mischa Barton, Rosamund Pike and Peaches Geldof witnessed the Temperley show at London 2009 Spring Fashion Week yesterday. The designer showed beautifully structured jackets, high-waist trousers, red-carpet worthy draped dresses, ruffled gowns and gorgeous asymmetrical cocktail frocks.
The beauty mood was dramatic as the models sported high-voltage smoky eyes in dark grey, stormy purple and coal black. The colour was taken right up to the brows for a modern effect, while black liner and strong brows balanced the look. Skin was fresh and natural, with a touch of creamy pink blush, and lips were almost bare in peony-pink lipstick with a hint of gloss.
The hair referenced the Great Gatsby era of the 20's with severe side partings giving way to slicked back hair. Optical flower headdresses in lilac and fuschia gave a nod to futuristic fantasies although various odds hats, in leopard print and black chiffon, rather detracted from the romance. Elsewhere, the slicked-back, almost boyish hair was the perfect antidote to Alice Temperley's ultra pretty creations. To see more images from the show, read more.
