“It’s a bit of a departure from what you think the Rag & Bone girl is,” says hair stylist Paul Hanlon of the brand’s Fall 2015 beauty look. “But I still think it has that attitude.” To create the illusion of a haphazard pixie cut without actually chopping off the models’ hair, Hanlon twisted sections and placed the ends on the forehead in an uneven pattern, using Bumble and bumble’s Classic Hairspray to keep things in place. “It’s almost like a bird’s nest,” he notes of the ‘do. The messy hair met a clean match in the nails, which were painted with two coats of JINSoon’s universally flattering nude hue, Nostalgia. As for the makeup, artist Gucci Westman cites Jean Seberg in Breathless and Milla Jovovich in The Fifth Element as her muses. “The quirkiness of Jovovich and the chicness of Jean Seberg—the elegance and effortlessness that a girl like that has,” she explains. After prepping the skin with Omoroviscza Blue Diamond Super-Cream, Westman added a warm, healthy glow with two NARS blushes (the dark red Dolce Vita and hot pink Mata Hari), and created an updated, punky take on the classic cat-eye by applying liner just above the lash line. “I just want the skin and lips to be fresh and the eyes and brows to be more of the talking point,” she says.
