You can tell America's obsessed with the election at the moment - even beauty trends have got political. Last night Oscar de la Renta sent models strutting down the catwalk looking like they were fashionista first ladies of the White House a la Sarah Palin. Backstage the hair was backcombed and set into a big, polished bee-hive and skin looked glowing and healthy with just a pop of cream pinky blusher. To set off the 'power look', eyes were sultry and smoky with bronze shadow and black liner smudged outwards with chunky lashes, making the models eyes stand out and lips were keep au natural with just a slight fleshy sheen. It's all feeling a little A/W to us. Where's the beach-combed bronzed looks we'd normally associate with S/S '09?
