Here's the inspiration for the look Francois Nars created for the runway on Marc Jacobs' Fashion Week show:
"I wanted the models to have a dirty look as if the hair and makeup had been slept in,"
~Marc Jacobs

“This look is what you’d see on a girl from the East Village or St. Germain des Pres-an existentialist with a modern twist. These girls are sexy and cool. Their makeup looks dirty and worn out as if it has been on all night but still translates beautifully on the runway.”
~Francois Nars

I guess I'm too old to get inspired by girls who stay up all night and sleep in their makeup.

  1. that's because it take about three hours hard labor to make that look presentable and not walk-of-shame...

  2. Sleeping in your makeup gives you bad skin. Sorry Marc Jacobs, acne isn't sexy.

  3. I think it's ironic that, while working in a profession that is devoted to enhancing femenine beauty, there are a number of men who like nothing better than to render women ugly. Sometimes when I see runway pictures, the makeup and hair reveal an anger and hatred of women that is almost palpable. I think such looks are disturbing; not sexy.

  4. I do so agree with you,Gaia and Eileen too ! and there isn't anything beautiful about those looks!
    By the way, even the products NARS/Marc JACOBis are very disapponting....
