Backstage at Vera Wang Fall 2014.

Vera Wang’s Fall 2014 collection—deep gray sweaters, black gothic gowns—was accompanied by effortless hair, courtesy of the stylist Jimmy Paul, who scrunched in Bumble and bumble Prep ($21, bumbleandbumble.com) for “an extremely natural, very, very undone look.” The makeup artist Lucia Pieroni also kept things au natural, save for some luminizing shimmer on cheekbones and a bare, nude shade on lips. Perhaps the boldest statement showed up on the nails, where the manicurist Jin Soon Choi opted for a shimmery gunmetal gray.
