Karl Lagerfeld announced an exclusive collaboration with”model-of-the moment” Kaia Gerber, launching August 30.  Available exclusively on Karl.com for the first two weeks, the capsule collection of ready-to-wear and accessories combines Lagerfeld’s iconic, Parisian-chic aesthetic with Gerber’s confident vision and Malibu style.  Signature pieces will include tuxedo blazers, biker jackets and little black dresses as well as some unexpected glittery sneakers, velvet caps, and pochettes.

“I have loved being a part of the creative process and working with Karl is a dream,” says Kaia Gerber. “I’ve always thought that he’s a genius, so it’s amazing that he’s shown me some of his trade. It has given me a new appreciation for how hard designers work, and how much creativity and thought goes into every collection.”

STEAL FASHION’S LATEST HAIRSTYLE: THE DOWNTOWN AMERICANA!

Monday, June 4th, 2018

Alexander Wang’s Spring 2019 Ready-To-Wear Collection was very personal.  Inspired by the contributions of America’s immigrant population, the collection drew from a melting pot of cultures and was referred to as “Immigrant America.”  Superstar celebrity hairdresser, Guido Palau, styled top models, including Kaia Gerber, Behati Prinsloo, and Bella Hadid.

Starting with clean, damp hair and a messy part, sectioned large pieces of hair and dried the ends first with the Dyson Supsersonic hair dryer (“to flatten out any volume and remove frizz”), section by section.  To keep the roots lying flat, Palau blew them dry, while keeping the middle portion of the hair more natural.  Then he applied Redken No Blow Dry Cream at the bottom of the hair, “so the ends will be smooth while the hair still looks natural,” and NBD Cream at the roots, pulling through.  Beginning at the bottom and working up to to the top, Palau sprayed Spray Shine Flash 02 to the hair, section by section.  Celebrity tip:  “When using the products, make sure they are even all around the head to achieve the natural look.”  To complete the look, Palau returned with the Dyson Supersonic, blowing and brushing at the ends of the hair “to get the ends really straight and spiky for texture,” before applying the signature Alexander Wang bandana.

At Valentino’s Parisian Spring/Summer 2018 Haute Couture show, Pierpaolo Piccioli unveiled a collection which reeked of modern glamour.  It-girl, Kaia Gerber, wore a fuchsia confection of taffeta, topped with a feathery crown. To accompany the look, makeup artist, Pat McGrath, chose a mid-toned lavender lipstick, Faux Pas, from her Lust: Mattetrance line.  The Pantone Color Of The Year, Ultra Violet, has been so popular that we have even spotted it on Rihanna (in Fenty Beauty’s Mattemoiselle).  Available at every price point, lavender lipsticks also come from Smashbox (Fair Play), NYX Maccaron Lippies (Violet), MAC Cosmetics (Up The Amp), Urban Decay (Pallor), ColourPop (Cheetah), and Lime Crime (Wisteria).
