Rodarte Fall 2012

James Kaliardos (NARS): We’re inspired by Australia today…and I went there this year, which is so funny. The Mulleavy sisters and I are always in sync like that—it’s really weird. Anyway, there’s this kind of rough, savage side to Australia—the outback—and then this very English, pale look of some girls there. Today, Kate and Laura wanted the girls to look like they’d been out in the sun. They wanted bronzer, so we’re using Laguna bronzer, but I wanted to mix it with something so it didn’t become a ‘bronzer face’, which can get too ‘Miami’, so I mixed in a pink called Gaiety which is another blush. And then we’re doing a pale matte lip with Bolero Velvet Matte Lip Pencil. We wanted it to look very windblown and matte, and have this kind of early 1970’s Serge Lutens, Sarah Moon, the photographer, feeling—when makeup started to get very blend-y. I used to do play around and do this kind of thing on my mom. [Laughs]

Odile Gilbert (Kérastase): This is Rodarte—you get to be a bit artistic with them [Kate and Laura]! The inspiration of the collection is the outback of Australia. We’re creating a little bob on the models…we’re using a 3-branch iron to get a little wave, and we’re parting it on the side, so the hair is a bit longer on one side. It’s very much enveloping the face. We’re using Kérastase mousse and hairspray, and then we’re adding accessories, that are from Rodarte—the little stars—on some girls, and rows of bobby pins on others. You know, when you have this kind of hairstyle, you have a neck…you create a beautiful long line.

Deborah Lippmann: There is a lot of bronze, brown and pink in the collection, so we’re using ‘No More Drama’ on the nails, which is a polish I created with Mary J. Blige, and then we’re using a matte top coat—I love matte and I feel like we’re going to be seeing a lot of that this spring and then going into fall.

    The stars in the cloud hair are such a sweet look! It would pair perfectly with a floaty tea dress… am so going to try to replicate when the season is right.
