City Pulse

It was a MAC-attack! And according to makeup artist Philippe Chansel, it was all MAC backstage in makeup at the Fall 2008 Iodice show. The makeup had an intense, yet flirtatious look, pairing thickly-lined eyes with a more natural lip. “We used big eyeliner, then covered it with silver metallic to get that shimmer,” Chansel said. “The lips are stained, almost like you put on lipstick and it wore off.” Only a hint of blush was used. Best said, it’s what a girl who knows what she is doing would do.

The preparation was topped off by sexy buns at the back of the head and a tousled crown. “We are keeping it controlled now,” said hairstylist Ric Pipino, “and messing it up a bit before the models go out. It will look more natural.” The hair team used a mixture of products appropriate for the different hair types, including Schwarzkopf Osis Flexible Hold Hair Spray and Kerastase products.

Like the makeup, the clothes were fierce yet sophisticated. While concentrating on the silhouette, Brazilian designer Valdemar Iodice drew on the classic bombshell look for each garment then added vibrant colors and eye-catching prints, which suggest the Op-Art era.

The chic, street graffiti-inspired line was predominately black with splashes of pink, yellow, silver and royal blue. There were slinky satin dresses and pants, which stopped mid-calf. There were also appearances of sequins, paten leather and heavy knit. Most models wore paten black belts cinched at the waste while everyone wore black elbow gloves and black platforms with gold piping.

The Iodice collection inspires women to explore the avant-garde side of style with absolute feminism.
