We loved nanettelepore's ”hand-crafted in New York” show this season—did you catch the livestream?
James Pecis created the elegant waterfall braid bangs, while Sarah Lucero of Stila completed the overall look with lovely long lashes and bold berry lips.

"Being constantly inspired by my own passion for home decor, I launched Nanette Lepore Villa because it was a natural extension of my brand and I wanted to make pieces I could imagine in my own home."
The hand painted shoe. With only days before the show as the final looks began to be styled for what would eventually hit the runway, Nanette decided the grey snake-embossed heel that she originally wanted was now too light for the rest of the collection. Julie, our print designer, came to the rescue once again.
"I presented Nanette with a few different options and then together we decided which would work best. First I tried a light grey outer layer [on the shoe], then we tried matter black all over and Nanette liked that best. I only used black black acrylic paint. It was great because the acrylic dried quickly and matte so it looked like a professional finish… But don’t worry, for production we’re going to do it correctly."

Inspired by a reflection of Nanette’s eclectic world travels—one day she’s meandering the MET; next, the flea markets of Paris—
Nanette Lepore’s fall is a celebration of rich felted fabrics, exquisite embroideries and easy, effortless silhouettes. To capture the global spirit of the collection, we played up fresh berry lips, gray-lined eyes and full, fluttery lashes.
Backstage Beauty Tip: “Skip dark eye shadows and apply Stay All Day® Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner in Alloy to clean lids for a soft pop of gray.”
