Make-up Trends with Napoleon Perdis at RAFW SS 10/11




Bold, bright hues and glamorous styles were all the rage this year at Rosemount Australian Fashion Week SS 10/11.

Clearly James Cameron's hit Avatar invaded flamboyant designer Camilla Franks' style file with the unleashing of an extravagantly colourful collection inspired by the blockbuster film. For Rachel Gilbert, it was all about the eyebrows and sophisticated glamour that was made popular by the young Elizabeth Taylor in the 1951 film A Place in the Sun

Below are the details of how the make-up looks were created by the always-fabulous Napoleon Perdis.

Camilla | Monday 3rd May


Inspiration
Designer Camilla Franks ordered up a series whimsical, theatrical and decidedly fantastical make-up looks to accompany her new collection. Napoleon Perdis, always willing to explore the wilder shores of colour, responded with four head-turning interpretations that are the polar opposite of work-appropriate. Eyebrows were camouflaged and the eyes were circled in vibrant hues of orange, blue, pink and Gothic-inspired black for one section. Skin and lips were left otherwise bare to point up the exuberant eye statements. In short, out of this world.

Rachel Gilbert | Monday 3rd May


Inspiration
For Rachel Gilbert, Napoleon Perdis was inspired by a young Elizabeth Taylor—and, in particular, her magnificently memorable eyebrows from the 1951 film “A Place In The Sun”. In the movie, Taylor plays a gorgeous debutante who falls for Montgomery Clift. The models’ aristocratic arches were augmented with black liner and frosty pink lips for a scene-stealing look.
