Marchesa Fall 2012 RTV

Accompanied by a chorus of angelic voices, the Fall RTV Collection for the house of Marchesa was released in an elaborate setting – the Palm Court of NYC Plaza Hotel. Inspired by fairy-like elegance taken from William-Adolphe Bouguereau’s painting – A Soul Brought To Heaven,  designers Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig conjured a spectacular array of seemingly unreal garments for the memory – making show.   Originally elaborate tapestries, many gowns were cut from elaborate dresses and then fashioned accordingly to create what the designers had in mind. Chapman and Craig had observed some images of skeletons, those bejeweled ones – and created something softer, more subtle, with that in mind. For hair, stylists Frederic Fekkai and Renato Campora created a casual, effortless illusion with a braided updo styled in an angelic fashion that the designers were going for. To mimic the style, follow the directions bellow according to your hair type.·        If you have thin hair start with Fekkai Coif Bouffant Lifting & Texturizing Spray Gel to add weight
·        For thick or tangled hair start with Fekkai Silky Straight Ironless Smooth Finish Serum to prevent frizz
·        With curly hair use Fekkai Perfectly Luscious Curls Curl Shaper Cream to add texture
·        When dealing with dry hair apply Fekkai Coiff Nonchalant Piecing & Forming Wax to add moisture and shine
 After preparing your hair with the appropriate product, take 1/2 inch sections from the crown of the head and create flat braids down the back of the head. When you finish braiding all of your hair, take longer braids and wrap them around the back of the head, blending and securing the ends with hair pins. Leave a few pieces of hair loose in the front to create some movement and soften the overall look. To finish it up, use Fekkai Coiff Sheer Hold Hairspray.The makeup was created by an array of makeup artists from Laura Mercier. The makeup, like the hair, was applied to give the illusion of an angelic result. The designers wanted a flawless, unharmed look that was set off with perfect, marble skin. To get the ‘’perfect’’ skin, makeup artists applied a mixture of Radiance and Hydrating Primer and then used foundation and concealer. Nose, cheeks, forehead, and chin were highlighted.  The makeup artists were intent on using some of the collection's gold color in their artistry. To avoid overpowering the look, the team mixed water with Gilded Moonshine. (The shade will launch in the Fall so don't look for it yet.) They used fake lashes and mascara, and then rounded the eyebrows also to create the rounded, angelic look they were going for. Lip-color was applied to make it look like all the models had just consumed a cherry.
