Backstage Report: Jeremy Scott
Inspiration: Designer Jeremy Scott is known for creating some of the wildest runway looks each season, and this time around was no different. Models in technicolor outfits strut down the catwalks looking like Harajuku-girl cartoon characters. Scott was inspired by club kids at raves and the '90s computer age.
Makeup: Kabuli for Mac Cosmetics created a "circuit board" of bindis across the models' foreheads, which he hand-crafted (all 456!) the night before. He adhered them with eyelash glue, and gave the girls shockingly bright blue lips (using Lipmixes and eye shadow). The flashing bulb in the center of each models' forehead was an internet score. According to Kabuli, the rest of the look (mascara with brown and gold eye shadow) is totally wearable and goes great will with a punchy-pink pout.
Hair: Eugene Souleiman for Wella Professionals braided their hair into a center, mohawk-like cornrow and used hair extensions to build wigs onto their heads (it tools about 30 to 40 minutes per model!). This turned them into Avatars or sci-fi versions of themselves. If this seems too extreme for anyone besides Nicki Minaj, try colorful clip-in strands.
Nails: Dashing Diva Design FX Bling strips with rainbow keyboard-shaped dots were applied to the model's nails. The adhesives can easily be peeled off with some cuticle oil. Fun fact: They were the same ones used in Katie Perry's iconic Smurf nail art tips.
