The look coming down the Anna Sui Fall 2013 runway took a playful spin on the '60s! Hairstylist Garren, who works with Anna every season, took inspiration from a Catherine Deneuve photo and updated her signature bouffant into a pageboy style, wrapping hair around a ponytail and tucking it under for the pouf effect. For the girls with short hair, like Karlie Kloss and Jessica Stam, watch the video to find out his personalized hair plan of attack. Makeup artist Pat McGrath created the adorable — and wearable — '60s look, sticking with a strong cat eye and dots under the bottom lashes for a mod twist. Much like the choreographed dance that started the runway show, the look was the perfect mix of playful and coy. We can't wait to try the look ourselves.
Often, beauty trends seen on the fashion runways seem just out of reach for the average woman. But what about these jewel-covered lips seen on the Dior Haute Couture Spring 2013 catwalk? Makeup artist Pat McGrath painted on Dior Addict Gloss in Diablotine and Princess (both coming this Spring) to form a base and then added shimmering Swarovski crystals to complete the look. This isn't the first time Dior has asked for added sparkle. For the design house's Spring 2013 ready-to-wear runway, McGrath designed eye makeup with multicolored crystals. But the question remains: would you give this ruby kiss a try?
Trendy under-eye liner or lush lower lashes can turn out two ways: surprisingly sexy or sloppily smudged. Assuming you want to avoid the latter, never have southward-moving slipups again with these secrets to applying precise under-eye makeup.

Spidery mascara used to make us cringe, but all over the fall runways, makeup artists coated (and coated) the models' lashes until they stuck together for a surprisingly sexy effect. Want to dial up your fringe? Don't just start piling on the product. There are steps you should follow to ensure your lashes look vampy, not trampy.

Dolce & Gabbana is known for its glamour, so it's only natural for the Italian house to offer a ruby-shaped lip palette for the holidays. The Lip Jewels ($60) is a quartet of cream lipsticks designed by famed makeup artist Pat McGrath, who used these colors during Dolce & Gabbana's Spring 2011 show. The lipsticks in this Saks-exclusive palette are packed with pigment, and the wear is pretty good, too. If you're looking to splurge, here's what they look like on a regular, nonmodel lady. (Me.)
>> The video accompaniment to Louis Vuitton's Fall 2009 campaign has appeared on The Moment — it will be on louisvuitton.com next week — with Madonna, stylist Marie Amelie-Sauve, and makeup artist Pat McGrath all making appearances. Marc Jacobs, for his part, explains the deal with the bunny ears: "There's a girl who works for us, Lucy, she's on the design team, and Adrian, one of the boys, was tying a little bit of fabric around and it reminded me of bunny. We were thinking of all these different things like can-can dancers, and I saw this piece of fabric wrapped around Lucy's head and said, 'Bunny ears, that's what we need to finish this look.' So we made all these radzimir bunny ears and that's how it happened. I like the kind of Playboy, French coquette aspect to it."
What does a drugstore have in common with Dolce & Gabbana? Usually, the answer would be a big "not much," but when it comes to beauty, things are different. The fabulous and famous makeup artist Pat McGrath worked with D&G on its newish Dolce & Gabbana makeup collection, creating a wide range of colors for the luxe launch.
What you might not know is that McGrath is also the cosmetics guru for Procter & Gamble, the company behind CoverGirl and Max Factor (which is soon to be discontinued in the U.S.). And just like she consulted on the high-end D&G beauty brand, she creates the color stories for these drugstore brands, too. It's almost the makeup equivalent of a designer doing a line for H&M: same talent, different product. And although I haven't tried the Dolce & Gabbana makeup yet, I've found Max Factor's Vivid Impact lipstick ($8.97) to be creamy and highly pigmented. So whether you splurge on D&G or opt for a more affordable choice, you'll have a bit of McGrath mastery either way.
>> Tonight, The British Fashion Council hosted the British Fashion Awards — the British counterpart to the CFDA Awards. Jourdan Dunn stole Agyness Deyn's Model of the Year crown, and looking shocked, managed to accept the award between tears: "My mum would like me to say I'm going to buy her a mansion but she's just going to have to accept this speech instead!" As for Designer of the Year — an honor bestowed on John Galliano and Alexander McQueen four times each — Luella Bartley was the anointed one.
