Tailored and crisp sixties inspired pieces were the look this season at the Tibi show; the designer Amy Smilovic described the collection as a combination of the swinging Beatles sixties and “the Narciso-wearing Gwyneth Paltrow, not the leg-baring Pucci-Gwynny”. Pantsuits, textured knits, and a graphic black and white bird print complete the untouched, structured pieces.
The 60’s/90’s juxtaposition of styles and the rich and dark textures are complemented with a strong yet effortless makeup look. The focal point of the face is the bold and defined brow, finished off with a fresh and dewy cheek. Kimberly Soane for Bobbi Brown created a look of “understated confidence.” The skin was prepped with Bobbi Brown Hydrating Face Cream, $52, and Hydrating Eye Cream, $46. The cheeks are made radiant with Pink Truffle Creamy Color for Cheeks and Lips, $20, a new product from Fall 2012 Bobbi Brown. The lips were given a matte nude color to keep a natural, strong look. Latte Creamy Matte Lip Color, $24. For a dewier, glowing face, the eyes have minimal color, just the Shell Eyeshadow, $21.
To accompany the face, the full Tibi look was completed with a loose, textured perfectly imperfect low ponytail. Aveda stylists Frank Rizzieri and Kevin Ryan describe the look as “six o’clock hair,” i.e. it’s been a long day and this busy girl has thrown back her hair and missed a few pieces. The messy yet pulled together look was understated to go along with the makeup look and an overall effortless, chic look. The hairstylists agreed that the Aveda Volumizing Tonic and the Aveda Pure Abundance were their favorite products for the look.
