1940’s Glamour

For the coming Fall season, designers were feeling 1940’s glamour in the air. From Gucci to Miu Miu and Donna Karan – 40’s refined feminine allure was back with a vengeance.

Be transported into the World War II-era, where skirts and dresses were worn to the knee and striking scarlet red lips made for a sensational pout.

Across many collections the 40’s influence could be seen in the sharp pencil skirts; matte red lipstick; and the sophisticatedly sexy accent of accessories – think of those decedent fur shrugs, statement hats, slim belts and elegant gloves.

1940’s silhouettes featured broad shoulders that gracefully tapered into a tailored waist. Almost every outfit contained shoulder pads and looks were finished off with a hat. The strong shoulder gave women a sense of purpose and strength – traits that were considered essential to survive the war. The fashion had to be practical, allow movement and comply within strict rationing. The long decedent beaded gowns of the 1930’s were now considered gaudy and unpatriotic. The 40’s lead the way for minimal, boxy dresses; shorter skirts and neatly belted waists.

1940’s fashion was elegant, refined and authoritative – reflecting the strong sense of purpose as women rolled up their sleeves and did their part on the home front…

Make-Up Trends From The Catwalk

Forget The Lips! Autumn Has ‘Fall’en For The Eyes

While I love a statement red lip, this coming Autumn / Winter 2011 season it is all about dramatic, alluring, captivating eyes.

From girly playfulness at Donna Karan (pictured above left) to high-octane neon pinks at Thakoon (pictured right) – the Fall runways left lips nude while eyes had their moment. Powerful eye statements were also seen at: Philip Lim, Anna Sui, Marc Jacobs, Vera Wang and Rodarte.

My favourite: At Donna Karan tangerine cream eye shadow was smudged across the top lid while white eyeliner discreetly traced the bottom. Lips were a delightful pastel pink matte to soften the look. Eyebrows were left untamed. Sweet, simple, playful perfection!

Meanwhile, Philip Lim saw metallic green eyes take the spotlight. At Marc Jacobs, a modern tough baby doll aesthetic took the traditional sweetness of this trend to the next level. Anna Sui created a different take on eye contouring that was both dramatic and intriguing; while Vera Wang’s grunge eyes created a dark and brooding prettiness that was just the right amount of sweet and sexy. Rodarte drew inspiration for eyes from the reds, golds and tawny browns of autumn. But the cleanest look was Proenza Schouler, where ‘minimalist’ eyes still drew the bulk of the impact in the midst of this flawless, barely-there look.
