Jason Wu:

blog-fw-beauty-suno-01.jpg The look whipped up at Suno by Odile Gilbert: “A side chignon that’s wispy and imperfect, like the model could’ve done it on her own.” My thought? TWINSIES!

blog-fw-beauty-suno-02.jpg Immediately fell in love with MAC publicist, Mary Beth Donohue’s two-tone pastel manicure. Beauty trick of the day: That tangerine shade is actually MAC’s Pigment in Red Electric mixed into a bottle of clear nail polish. You’re welcome.
