Fall 2010 Fashion Recap-Jill Stuart

The Jill Stuart Fall 2010 collection blew my mind when I saw it last February. Every aspect of the show was perfection and a great indicator of many many trends happening right now.

Clothes: The collection had a military toughness with a super feminine edge to it. The juxtaposition between military coats and tops with feminine hemlines and skirts made the entire show mesmerizing. The unbelievably rich hues seen i the coats, dresses and blazers made the collection a perfect representation of fall fashion. Each outfit was impeccably tied together with tall velvet plume hats, chunky scarves, or slightly over-sized hats. To top it all off, my favorite fall accessory made each outfit glaringly cool and chic: super sexy thigh high boots. I was unsure about the over the knee boots till I saw these and I instantly fell in love. Stuart managed to pair them with the military, tailored and layered look effortlessly. Bottom line: I wanted to look like each and every model and where each and every outfit every day of my fall 2010 life!

Makeup: Makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury used Jill Stuart's own cosmetics collection (based only in Japan right now) to create the look. The style has a very European Bridgette Bardot super sultry feline eye with a matte face and heavily rimmed charcoal eyes. Tilbry used brown shadow over the lids and then lined the rims and outer corner with black get eyeliner (I recommend the brand Make Up For Ever or Smashbox).

Hair: TIGI's Bob Recine created a voluminous messy "danced-out" look. A girl who's "75 percent done with her entire night". The hair was sexy messy bed head and Recine showed a carefully constructed look that had a very textured feel to it. The "imperfect" hair was done using Catwalk Root Boost ( a spray mousse), Firm Hold Hairspray.
