Makeup artist Kabuki transforms Naty Chabanenko and Ranya Mordanova into femme fatales for Vogue Italia; bright eyeshadow, dark lips and loads of temporary ink turns the fresh faced duo into sultry barflies who look more than a little moody. Emma Summerton creates the world of blue-tinted darkness, but Kabuki adds a touch of the surreal with his creative use of cosmetics.

The Look of Day 2

February 13th, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

The shows are going by at a lightening fast pace, but each day there is something special to catch our eyes or make us smile. In our second installment of daily looks, we take a peak at our favorites from day two.

Alla at Jason Wu

All eyes were on Jason Wu this season and the designer didn’t disappoint, his collection was a buoyant mix of electric colors and rich textures. There was a wide range to choose from: everything from ultra feminine cocktail dresses, to sporty borrowed from the boys separates – but our favorite was the ultra-girly number on Lindsey Wixson. With its frills, fringe and bubblegum pink shade, it was like a delicious bit of runway candy and we can tell from Lindsay’s expression that she loved it too.

A little glitter never hurt anyone: the lips at Doo.Ri were covered in icy an metallic shade that looked great on the runway and worked perfectly with the cool toned clothes, Naty Chabanenko, pulled it off especially well.
