Inspired by the lines of sand dunes, hairstylist Kayla MiChele created an innovative faux eyeliner by sculpting strands of hair with Oribe Rock Hard Gel around the eye.

The texture and beauty of sand dunes serve as the starting point for a story that pushes the limits of beauty in dramatic black and white. Makeup artist Erin Parsons and hair stylist Kayla MiChele share how they brought the look to life on Rose Smith.

“The bold silhouette of a chin length bob haircut is accentuated as Kayla MiChele sculpted into the ends symmetrical points to frame the jawline using Oribe Gel Serum.


“Face tapes were used to create symmetry while brows become the focal point of the look highlighted by a dab of gloss from lids to crease. Groom and perfect eyebrows with Anastasia Brow Whiz in Brunette and Anastasia Clear Brow Gel.”


“Take spider lashes to great lengths using clumps of mascara and individual extensions stacked on one another with Tarte Lights, Camera, Action 4 in 1 Mascara in Rich Black and Make Up For Ever Individual Eyelashes.


“Texture is key in the effect on lips by layering a deep cream shade first and sweeping on top platinum metallic pigment. Nars Shimmer Eyeshadow in Euphrate over top Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Train Bleu.


“Paint strokes were created organically using an eyeshadow brush dipped in a jet black glaze. Follow the shape of the eye and glide brush from the inner corner of the eye pulling outward using Nars Eye Paint in Black Valley mixed with Nars Lip Gloss in Triple X.

This week the modeling industry lost one of its true legends, Eileen Ford passed away at the age of 92, but her legacy continues to shape every aspect of the industry. As the founder of Ford Models Eileen along with husband Jerry defined the face of beauty for generations, launching the careers of everyone from modeling phenoms Christie Brinkley and Lauren Hutton, to actress Jane Fonda and mogul Martha Stewart. With an eye for beauty and a head for business Ford took the business of beauty into the 21st century and transformed her handpicked girls into world class stars. We here at MODELS.com also express our deepest sympathies to the Ford family and friends.

Eileen herself takes us through her stellar career and whirlwind life in this commemorative video in honor of her Fashion Houston Lifetime Achievement Award in 2010.

Many of those working in modeling today got their start because of Eileen Ford and for those who worked alongside the visionary Ms. Ford her passing marks the end of an era. Friend and fellow agent, Neal Hamil shares his Eileen memories below.

The “Mother of Modeling”; Eileen was a giver. Utterly generous of her spirit, knowledge, time, money, love. She was the ultimate teacher. She elevated everyone and all those who had the benefit of whatever largess Eileen bestowed upon them were left better. She was tough and exacting but she was almost always right.

Eileen Ford was brilliant. A true visionary in the way her contemporaries Estée Lauder, Helen Gurley Brown back then and, perhaps, Sir Richard Branson and Steve Jobs in the modern age were brilliant. She was a natural businesswoman and branding expert. She knew it when she saw it, seized the moment and worked the moment like few can.

Eileen Ford was devoted. First to her beloved husband and co-pilot, Jerry and then to her children and family and to her extended family. Of the gifts she gave those around her, her “being” was the greatest of all. She deeply altered every life she touched. She made you think. She made you better.

Eileen was the greatest champion women could have. Not just her models but for every woman everywhere. She was an activist who would have never accepted such a label. She just simply cared. She wanted good for people. She wanted you to succeed and to thrive.

As an agent she reigned supreme. She stood up, fought and almost always won. Everyone respected Eileen. She commanded that respect and she demanded it and most importantly, she deserved it.

As a friend, you simply could do no better. Eileen “saw” you and she was there for you; no matter what. She enjoyed such loyalty from those who knew her; again, something she richly deserved.

Of the thousands of “Eileen Stories” I can share, I hope everyone reading this will post and share their “Eileen Stories” but one story has always stood out in my memory. One horribly messy, snowy and bitterly cold winter morning, Eileen was arriving at our offices at 344 East 59th Street and took notice of the delivery man from The Sutton Diner, just around the corner. This lovely man, who spent his entire day delivering orders of coffee and food to FORD (no unions allowed!) was freezing with his tennis shoes, socks and pants practically frozen solid. Without a word to him, Eileen reached her office and told her secretary to call The Sutton and ask his shoe size and then to call LL Bean and get him a pair of properly insulated snow boots as tall as they made them. There was only one stipulation; that the identity of the giver of this gift not be revealed. THAT was Eileen Ford. The giver, the nurturer, the protector, the spreader of good.

Eileen Ford leaves behind a legacy in which she defined the idea of beauty for more than six decades. Her impact on a entire industry will be felt forever. She changed the world and she changed it for the better. I recently asked Eileen how she wanted to be remembered and she said “Happy. I was an extremely happy woman”

What a life! What a legacy. I bow my head in eternal gratitude and my love for her is without end. I am sure tens of thousands of you will join me in simply saying; “Thank You, Eileen. Well done! Godspeed. Rest well”!

The one of a kind gowns take center stage during couture week, but each season a wealth of beauty trends emerge thanks to the unique looks that debut on the couture runways. Take a look at some of the best in beauty so far, from dramatic eyes to New Wave hair.


Pat McGrath and Guido Palau are always pushing boundaries and for Atelier Versace’s return to the runway the duo crafted a streamlined look that was as precise and exacting as Donatella’s graphic collection. McGrath’s futuristic take on the cat-eye blended black and teal shades into a dramatic winged shape. Palau’s hair was kept slick and simple – a high, tight bun with a few tendrils left spiky.

New Wave was on the mind at Chanel with Sam McKnight basing the look on a sketch by Karl himself of wild hair and bespoke hats. Looking to rock star coifs of 80s groups (think Flock of Seagulls, or Boy George circa Culture Club) and the original drawing, McKnight created a carefree tousled style that worked well with the collection’s array of bespoke hats.

Who says couture beauty has to be over the top? At Giambattista Valli the look was low key and understated with models sporting perfect skin and just a hint of black liner. Val Garland provided the fresh look utilizing a variety of MAC Cosmetics products – MAC Mineralize Moisture SPF15 foundation and Care Blends essential oils provided the show’s signature glow. To take the just stepped out of the shower and into a couture gown look one step further Orlando Pita wrapped scarves and ribbon around the head of each model.
