Marc by Marc Jacobs's vision of a woman: vintage glamour. The bright prints of the Fall 2013 collection could have come straight from 1975, but the hair and makeup were inspired by different eras — creating a mash-up of decades. Guido Palau for Redken was inspired by the '40s, creating a texturized, pin-curled look for giant, glamorous locks (hello, Cara Delevingne; can we buy you a drink?), and several models wore colorful nets on the hairstyle to add an extra retro touch. As it turns out, for the makeup, Dick Page for Shiseido didn't have a decade in mind when mapping out the face. He did, however, bring focus to the lips by applying a bright red with a brush, and accentuated the eyes by lining with a shadow on the outer third.
Welcome to the wonderful world of Jason Wu at Fall 2013 New York Fashion Week, where the women are strong and cool, and the makeup is bold and daring. One thing Jason doesn't lack? Vision. He worked with Lancôme's Diane Kendal on that perfect indigo shade, a mix of liners, and a shadow — which included a key shade from his upcoming collaboration with Lancôme — for the exaggerated winged look. Odile Gilbert for Kérastase created an elegant, tucked-and-folded bun for a tidy, woven coif, which is best described as a bob-meets-chignon.

What's your favorite flavor of couture lipstick: cherry, lemon or lime? At the Dior show, I noticed a lot of deep blood reds, but the looks on the On Aura Tout Vu runway stopped me dead in my tracks. I know that Shu Uemura makes those true-color, Rouge Unlimited artist shade lipsticks, but I've just never seen them worn.
These ladies look lovely, and I appreciate the artsy risk—but seriously, folks, bright yellow and green lipstick!?! It looks like the model on the left won an split pea soup-eating contest. If you can't enough coverage of outrageous looks from the 2007 Fall couture shows, check out Fab's posts. And for now, tell me what you think of these lip colors!
