Austrian Opulence Dominates at the Chanel Métiers d’Art Show



Karl Lagerfeld took the chic set on an Austrian adventure for Chanel’s annual Métiers d’Art show held at the Schloss Leopoldskron in Salzburg. The Kaiser opted for royal opulence, which he gave us a taste of on Monday with Cara Delevingne and Pharrell’s waltz in the brand’s short film. The decadence wasn’t just in the details on the runway, but also in the beauty.

Sam McKnight was inspired by 19th-century Austrian empress Sissi, infusing the look with “a little early-’70s Brigitte Bardot and a lot of 21st-century ease.” He blew out the tresses with a dab of L’Oréal Professionnel Tecni Art Mousse for volume before slicking back the front section, fastening the tiny pony with a #CCertified bejeweled barrette, black ribbon, or a combination of both. The rest of the hair was tonged and texturized with a blast of Oribe’s signature spray. To add a techy touch, some of the models even wore “braidphones,” as Knight shared on Instagram—they’re sure to be at the top of everyone’s wish list.

Tom Pecheux found the glitz in the gloom with a shimmery smoky eye. In lieu of mixing glitter into the shadow for all-over shine, the makeup maestro keep the frost along the lash line to catch the light as the models made their way down the catwalk. A touch of highlighter on the cheeks and natural pink gloss rounded out the rest of the snow bunny-inspired look.

With a beautiful barrette and a dash of dazzle, we can already see this look being recreated at slew of holiday parties this season!
