Backstage at Nicole Miller Spring 2014

Marie Antoinette goes Punk. That's what Nicole Miller's deconstructed 18th-century opulence inspired beauty look made me feel. Makeup is created by MAC lead artist James Kaliardos who draws inspiration from both French aristocracy and modern-day rebel but instead of using blacks he opt for some mauve tones. For the hair, which is styled by Kevin Ryan for Rsession Tools what he did was a pseudo-classic braided undo with plenty of textures. From the velvet fuchsia lips up to the messy braided hair. . . what more can you ask for?
