The look at Jill Stuart was Mod, baby. Fashion is repeating itself and we are clearly in the 60s again. We've already caught glimpses of Sienna Miller's Mod looks from Factory Girl and know that stores have been carrying mini shift dresses for months. On to the good stuff...
Main silhouettes were swingy 60's inspired pea coats, hot pants and high waisted pants. Patent leather accents, bows and fur trim were key details. There were also playful hoods contrasted with plunging necklines on cocktail dresses. Colors were bold: black, electric blue and purple.
As for hair, think Marcia Brady. Center parts with straight hair that looked neat but not overdone. Hair was loose, not pin straight and teased in the back just a tad to give a messy effect. Most models had very long hair. For those who didn't, they were given the same style sans any extensions or falls.
Makeup was also reminiscent of the times. Models wore pale pale lips, which looked almost milky colored and cheeks were also pretty bare. They had a touch of contour to them, but no pop of color at all.
Eyes were grey and smokey with heavy black eyeliner around the rims. Mascara was especially dark and thick with tons of added fake eyelashes to add length and thickness. While the clothing was playful and the girls looked pretty - they didn't come off looking so soft and sweet; this show was most definitely serious Mod!
