Christy Turlington Closed Marc Jacobs, and Put an End to NYFW
Marc Jacobs closed out Fashion Week with a glorious collection that reveled in volume and bold choices. A citrine off-the-shoulder gown worn by Adut Akech seems destined for red carpet greatness and feathers abounded, giving a heavy dose of glamour to the collection, which was more tightly edited than in season’s past, but no less magnificent.
Of course, one of the biggest headlines from the night was Christy Turlington’s walk to close the show — her first time on the runway in about 25 years. (Hard to believe, but true!) So what made her decide to come back? Well, apart from being a close friend of Jacobs’ since she was 16, she did it to impress her 15-year-old daughter. “I desperately want [her] to see and hear me and this is a medium that ‘speaks’ to her,” she joked on Instagram.

Carine Roitfeld Reduces Her Role at CR Fashion Book (WWD)
Carine Roitfeld is stepping back from her eponymous magazine. Although she will no longer be leading the editorial team, she’s not leaving it entirely. “I’ve become another stylist in the magazine,” she told WWD. “I’ve worked a lot, but I think finally I’ve grown up — I’m not just an editor, I’m the head of this brand that includes the magazine and the [creative] studio and more to come.” In the meantime, no one is replacing Roitfeld as EIC, but Patrick Sandberg — editor of CR Men’s — has been promoted to editorial and creative director.

Beauty Spotlight: Alice + Olivia’s Multi-Dimensional Burgundy Lips
Maybelline New York global makeup artist Erin Parsons created three different lips in burgundy, red, and pink. To create the bordeaux look, she began by tracing the perimeter of the lip and filling in the outer corners with Color Sensational Shaping Lip Liner in Plum Passion. Then, she softly diffused the pigment toward the center of the mouth with a fluffy brush. Next, she traced over the liner with SuperStay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick in Composer. She added SuperStay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick in Pioneer to the center of the mouth to create a “dark and sexy” effect reminiscent of a “blooming rose.” For a glossy finish, she glazed over the darker areas of the lip with Color Sensational Vivid Hot Lacquer Lip Gloss in Slay It and topped the bright red center with Classic.
