The Blue LBD via [HushCoutoure]

, , , ,

While the Little Black Dress is always a wardrobe staple, make room for the new LBD (little blue dress).   This spring it is all about colour, and shades of blue are all over the streets and runways.  Cobalt, a first cousin of royal blue and spring’s new black, is a bright fresh hue that makes us feel ready to take on the world.  And while the cool colour is all the rage in clothing, cobalt is making its presence in accessories like bags and shoes.  Brian Atwood makes a fabulous cobalt platform pump and Isabel Marant has a pointed cobalt suede kitten heel with a bow that will have heads turning whenever you make an entrance.

If you don’t want to go monochromatic, add a poppy red or bright yellow to the mix, or go neutral with a beige sandal, and if all else fails, black is always a fail safe option for accessorizing the new “it” colour.

But, if you dare to be bold, try mixing different shades of blue together like indigo or denim for a “colour-dipped effect.”  Either way you can’t go wrong with the new LBD.

Blue Dress - the Sartorialist

If you had to choose one thing to wear for the rest of your life, what would it be? For me, it’s an easy choice- a blue dress. I have a closet full already. Over Thanksgiving I found myself drawn across Nordstrom at the glimpse of a navy dress across the store, only to arrive and realize I already own that exact dress. (In my defense, the fabric was a *slightly* different shade.)

Now, in a situation where I really had to wear the same thing for the rest of my life, a blue dress is probably a foolish choice. Remember that season of Survivor where they made them jump off the boat without notice and many of them were wearing suits and dresses? I’d be the idiot in the blue dress.

Facing Fall

Bold eyes, bare skin and matte lips—the season’s new looks are anything but ordinary


By Anne-Marie Guarnieri


TOM PECHEUX FOR ESTEE LAUDER
Created for the Derek Lam Fall runway 

For its New York Fashion Week debut, Estée Lauder tapped the veteran makeup artist to create the look for Lam. Pecheux, whose handiwork has graced multiple Vogue covers and campaigns for luxury brands like Yves Saint Laurent and Gucci, was appointed creative makeup director for Estée Lauder in 2009; for Lam’s show, he created a smoky blue eye and beige lip that translated into his premiere Fall collection for Lauder, called Blue Dahlia.

TO GET THIS LOOK
Pure Color gloss in Twilight Petal ($20) and Pure Color Five Color eye shadow palette in Blue Dahlia ($40), Estée Lauder. Macy’s, 1675 Meridian Ave., Miami Beach; macys.com

LISA BUTLER FOR NARS
Created for the 3.1 Phillip Lim Fall runway

“Disco-punk” is how the designer described the edgy-eye and matte-lip look that Butler created for his show. Applying multiple layers of color to perfect the rock ’n’ roll vibe, Butler used brown-black shadow and plenty of liner, while keeping the skin essentially bare with just a hint of honey-pink on the cheeks. But what really made this face modern was the matte lip: not too dry, not too creamy—just a perfectly neutral, shine-free pout.

TO GET THIS LOOK
Douceur blush ($26), Pure Matte lipstick in Bangkok ($25) and Coconut Grove eye shadow ($23), Nars. Neiman Marcus, Bal Harbour Shops, 9700 Collins Ave.; neimanmarcus.com

LUCIA PIERONI FOR MAC
Created for the Jason Wu Fall runway

Pieroni created a “boyish but not masculine” look to complement Wu’s collection, elements of which were inspired by the film The Piano and colors found on furniture in Wu’s studio. Eyes were a silvery gray that reflected the light in a way that looked more ethereal than straight-ahead metallic. She kept the skin cool with a slight glow, applying concealer only where needed and highlighter on cheekbones. Lips were soft and nude—an effect achieved by using just a tiny bit of balm, patted in to give a matte finish.

TO GET THIS LOOK
Platinum Pigment ($19.50), Lip Conditioner SPF 15 ($14.50) and Opulash mascara ($14), MAC Pro. 1107 Lincoln Road, Miami Beach; maccosmetics.com
