On Tuesday Karl Lagerfeld presented the CHANEL 2014/2015 Cruise show on The Island in Dubai and as always it was an extravaganza of all things beautiful! The makeup was incredible, the look was created by Tom Pecheux, who has been a hero of mine for years. Sam McKnight created the super full hair. It reminded me of an uber fabulous 70’s disco diva.
The skin was just perfect, flawless and bright with a beautifully warm glow and the perfect nude lip. I do not have a product list as yet but as soon as I have one I will update this post. The eye makeup is where all the drama was. Tom created a double flick one from under the eye and one from the top lid. The one on the top being bigger and bolder making the models eyes look huge and doll like. To add some more drama he used some gold leaf on the inner corner of the eye. This creates some more drama but more importantly makes the eyes seem even bigger. It’s just perfect!! Check out the images below and I will upload a product list as soon as I have it.
After having reached The Island, guests including CHANEL ambassadresses Vanessa Paradis, Tilda Swinton, Anna Mouglalis, Alice Dellal and Zhou Xun, actresses Dakota Fanning, Freida Pinto, Elisa Sednaoui, Yasmine Hamdan and Razane Jammal, and directors Nadine Labaki and Abdalla Al Kaabi were also present at the CHANEL show set within the shadows of mashrabiya made up of double C’s. Guests enjoyed a private concert given by Janelle Monae.
