Inspired by the Scottish fairytale nymph, the beauty look at the Ports 1961 Fall 2008 collection transported attending fashionistas to a faraway time and place. Flowing, long hair was lightly curled with an iron, and then tousled and set with Prive’s Finishing Spray for a naturally youthful look. Laurent D. of Prive added, “Any woman can achieve this low-maintenance style. It’s soft yet polished. We parted the hair in the middle, which is a trend that is coming back in a big way next season.”

Nails were kept at a short length, and finished off with CND’s Romantique Nail Polish for a sheer, matte pink finish that looked both simple and healthy.

MAC makeup artist Isabella expounded upon the Gaelic theme with a beauty palette inspired by the warmth of Irish skin. To create an ethereal glow around the eyes, Isabella applied MAC’s Lip Gelee in Moistly for a glossy finish. For further theatrical effect, thin clear plastic sheets were layered a top the eyes for a mystical reflection under the bright runway lights. A super-sheer berry lip stain completed the face – MAC’s Burgundy Lip Mix – a hue reminiscent of the blushing pout of a baby’s lips.

Celtic music spun in a drum-beat frenzy over the loud speakers as models floated down the runways in a host of earthy tones, all rich in the shades of the Emerald Island; greens, rusty reds, creams, and greys. Romantic head wreaths topped hair that cascaded down past the shoulders, while large pelts of fur topped off little tweed dresses. While like a page out of a Grimm’s Fairy Tales, the wearability of this collection was decidedly adaptable to the here and now.
