NYFW S/S ‘12 Beauty Report: Altuzarra

Backstage at Altuzarra, we find jagged fringes and dynamic luxury brows styled like a graphic Nike tick. The inspiration is Kim Peers in the YSL campaign in S/S '01 [below]. Compared to the last two seasons, this is a pared-down look (remember the day glo slicked back hair?) and there are undeniable flickers of Helmut Lang and Alexander Wang. The razored-in fringes hang over the left eye and the powdered black brows sit on a hyper-hydrated nude canvas. Like many simple looks, it takes time to be 90's effortless, even when beauty's backstage heroes Tom Pecheux and Paul Hanlon are in charge!
