“It’s like she’s been in a midwest tornado,” said hair stylist Orlando Pita of the tousled braids he created for Michael Kors Spring 2015 show. “For the past three seasons we’ve done this earthy sensual texture for Michael. It looks very disheveled and windswept.” Pita pulled pieces of hair out of the plaits as he braided them together and used a large barrel curling iron to give them soft, romantic bends. Makeup artist Dick Page gave models the typical Kors girl-in-the-sun faces using Michael Kors Bronze Powders and added a dewy sheen to eyes by dabbing MAC Gloss Lipmix ($15, maccosmetics.com) on lids. And in keeping with his collection’s 1950s vibe, Kors asked nail artist Jin Soon Choi to give talons a “powdery” look, for which she used Michael Kors Sporty Nail Lacquer in Hint ($18, michaeklors.com) and her own Jin Soon Matte Top Coat ($18, sephora.com).
