Dolce & Gabbana Plays With Mom’s Vanity for Fall 2015


Mama mia! Dolce & Gabbana surprised the chic set with a collection dedicated to mothers from all over the world, even including a model mommy-to-be rocking the runway with the regulars. In order to create that gorgeous maternal glow, the dynamic design duo turned to the one and only Pat McGrath and Guido Palau to channel iconic matriarchs like Monica Bellucci, Jackie O, and, of course, Sophia Loren.

McGrath started with the brand’s signature Primer to illuminate the skin before applying the Perfect Matte Liquid Foundation for a velvet finish. The skin was contoured with a blend of The Blush in Delight and Mauve Diamond before sealing it with pressed powder and highlighting the high points of the face with The Eva Illuminator. McGrath crafted a contoured eye with a blend of The Eyeshadow Quad in Desert and the Perfect Mono Eyeshadow in Leo Brown in the crease, with a pop of gold on the lid and a dusting of Antique Rose. She then added a feline flick to the upper lashes with The Glam Liner in black, amplifying the lower lashes with the Chocolate Kohl Pencil and The Eyeliner in Nude and a few coats of mascara. To finish the look, McGrath painted on the Dolce Matte Lipstick in 13 shades of iconic red with some models getting a swipe of the Classic Cream Lipstick in Antique Rose for contrast.

As for the tresses, Palau styled messy chignons, first blowing out the hair with Redken’s Wind Blown texturizing spray to resemble a multi-tasking mom quickly pinning up her strands. He added extra sparkle with strands of pearl headbands and bejeweled headpieces to look as though models had dug through mom's trinket box. 

Regardless of whether your have a little one of your own, this classic look is appropriate for all occasions – bejeweled bands included.
