“Easy Allure…” was a reference in the inspiration notes at Vera’s Fall 2014 runway show. The hair and makeup stories at the show didn’t stray far from this idea. W Magazine went backstage before the show to get the inside scoop on the beauty front:
Vera Wang’s Fall 2014 collection—deep gray sweaters, black gothic gowns—was accompanied by effortless hair, courtesy of the stylist Jimmy Paul, who scrunched in Bumble and bumble Prep for “an extremely natural, very, very undone look.” The makeup artist Lucia Pieroni also kept things au natural, save for some luminizing shimmer on cheekbones and a bare, nude shade on lips. Perhaps the boldest statement showed up on the nails, where the manicurist Jin Soon Choi opted for a shimmery gunmetal gray.
