City Pulse

By Charu Suri


If you’re not a globetrotter, go to Nicole Miller’s show. She’ll bring the exotic to you with her rustle of inspired prints and far-flung elegance. The designer’s influence sang of Bolivian and Mexican and prints, rusts and tawnys with hints of wine and olive. Much like a perfect fall day, really.

The makeup, by M.A.C., showcased a clean face dusted with faint blush on the cheeks and a tawny rich eyeshadow. Lips were unabashedly natural. “What Christian McCullough has done for the show is created a look that’s fresh…it’s really like being outdoors,” says a M.A.C. makeup artist. Ultimately, there wasn’t a single feature that stood out; everything was harmonious.

Marco Santini, the hair stylist for Bumble and bumble said, “The look? Bolivian charm. Right away, I started to think of braids.” All models wore fishtail braids that served as an accessory. Bowler hats and wool caps accessorized the accessory!


On the catwalk, the hair and makeup complemented the clothes that were predominantly black, charcoal and metal with bright hints of olive and wine, reminding us how darkly elegant fall can be. Pieces like the Huari Silk Print Scarf Panel Dress stood out because of the exotic and rich print, as did numbers like the Olive Quilted Dress with Metal Yoke. To view the runway look, check out our video podcast below.
