Kendall Jenner Has Amazing Off-Duty Style for Fall: See Her Best Looks from NYFW

Florals for fall? Of course. This Fashion month, Kendall Jenner has had New York calling for the best street style approaching this season. Reiling on a primarily neutral hued palette, Kendall’s stylist-in-tow Dani Michelle knows a thing or two about groundbreaking celebrity off-duty style. Boosting a chic repertoire whose client list includes Kourtney Kardashian Barker & Hailey Bieber, Michelle sticks to the basic elements of a model-approved wardrobe with a twist. From an off-the-runway Spring 2023 Proenza Schouler polka-dot combo to a vintage Prada moment, these must-need-now ‘fits are the perfect inspiration for heading into autumn, Kendall-style. 

This Khaite minidress combined with Kendall’s calf-length boots are giving western-inspired vibes with a feminine touch. The look was completed with a Khaite suede tote. 

Kendall donned this dreamy Proenza Schouler halter-neck maxi paired with The Row boots. Emphasizing her silhouette, the gathered ruching added interest and shape. The takeaway? Summer’s not over yet. When wearing florals in cooler months, layer rich autumn tones & textures for dimension and point of difference.

Game, set, chic. Bottega has been a style staple in Kendall’s wardrobe, and this maxi is no exception. For the ultimate preppy vibes, she completed her ‘fit at the Men’s US Open final with Bottega teardrop earrings, The Row thong sandals, and a Ralph Lauren baseball cap. Style tip? Mixing preppy elements (i.e. the cap) & modern elements breathes new energy into enduring classics. The navy cap makes the feminine look more relaxed yet 90s super cool.

A creamsicle pop for fall? Yes. For the perfect accompaniment to a jeans and tank combo, a pastel-orange jacket keeps the model’s on-the-go look bright but timeless. The takeaway? Experiment with new colour approaches this season. 

@danixmichelle @kendalljenner

The (literal) high-low approach to polka dots. Being on Kendall’s style repertoire, this Spring 2023 Proenza Schouler off-the-runway crop & floaty dot set is sartorially spot-on. Feeling bold? Mix your dots.

It’s Prada or nada. This 90s Prada canvas dress is giving all the nostalgic feels. The leather harness straps and nipped waist makes this sporty archival dress forever-chic. 

Ethereal Beauty Was En Masse at Jacquemus’ FW22 ‘Le Papier’

Consider summertime beauty, perfected. Set on the salt-concentrated mountains of Arles, France, from saltwater-slicked hair to sunburn-like flush to earthy eyes, nature was realized as inspiration for beauty at Jacquemus’ FW22 ‘Le Papier’. More on the stunningly-beautiful beauty moments, below.  

Taking notes from the creamy, muted FW22 palette, eyes at Jacquemus were earthed with matte-hued eyeshadows in a painterly motion across the lids. Artfully applied via pro MUA Lauren Parsons, a palette of tonal pigments was revealed in the eye makeup. Gritted with a chalk-like from-the-earth texture, nature, as it was, was at play. 

As for the cheeks: Sun-glazed skin was kept luminous on the high points of the cheekbones, followed by microdots of mini faux freckles grazed across the face. Overall, skin texture was kept fresh and healthy with hints of a sunburn-like flush. Though minimalist, Parsons’ approachable beauty outlook was breathtaking.

About hair? Pro Cyndia Harvey transformed hair into ever-otherworldly. The salt-water textured ‘do was made away from the face slicked into a finishing low pony. Baby curls were made accessory to the face as a gelled-down point of difference. Athletic yet carefree, hair stuck to a come-as-you-are naturalness from root to tip(s). IRL vacation? Summer’s ready.

Your Guide to the Best of Beauty from the Met Gala

Sumptuous and splendid in all its allure, beauty at this year’s Met was breathtaking. From dramatic moments such as bleached-out brows and S-waved hairpieces to cascading, ringlet curls – here are the best beauty moments to remember.

EMMA CHAMBERLAIN

For all that glitters, a pop of gold is the gilded beauty statement to complement an icy-blonde blunt cut. Pro MUA Kelsey Deenihan popped the shimmering metallic on the rim of Emma’s lids & paired with a burnt rosy-hued eyeshadow, lifting her eyes to glamorous iridescence. Crowned atop was a headpiece by Cartier. Naturally.

JULIANNE MOORE

One must not look further than a 60s blowout & smoked-out eyes to complete a Jaqueline Kennedy-inspired Tom Ford gown. Moore was stunningly beautiful, as hair and makeup artistry was by way of Marcus Francis and Hung Vanngo.

GEMMA CHAN

1940’s romantic tresses were made modern for this year’s gala. Pro Owen Gould kept Chan’s hair side parted, with looser, ‘wetter’ locks making the timeless style anew.

KENDALL JENNER

Bleached-out brows have officially returned. To offset Kendall’s newly lightened brows, MUA Mary Philips emphasized bold lashes to complete the ever-transformative look. 

LENA MAHFOUF

A perfectly coiffed up-do calls on an encrusted hairpiece to complete the gilded look. Lena’s smokey, winged eyes kept the look modern.

KIKI LAYNE

Floating, mosaic-like pinky petals graced over the top of Kiki’s lids for a delicate beauty look. Skin was finished with sweeps of blush on the cheeks by way of MUA Billie Gene. Kiki’s stunningly textured Afro completed the 70s inspired look via hair artist Tish Celestine. 

OLIVIA RODRIGO

Olivia Rodrigo knows when to bring a Y2K purple moment. MUA Lilly Keys added a sheet of shimmering creamy lavender and lilac eyeshadow to her lids. Butterfly clip-ins and unending locks added an aura of ethereal to her rock-influenced look. 

JODIE TURNER-SMITH

A triad of gems underneath a 20s brow plus a stream of finger waves cascading through a micro-bob makes Jodie Turner-Smith’s glistening beauty all-the-more Met-approved. 

PALOMA ELSESSER

A chiseled jaw calls on a choppy bob to showcase its stunning definition…that being supermodel Paloma Elsesser’s. True to that i-D cover, Elsesser stuck to her (shorter length) roots reiling on the coif talents of Ursula Stephen to transform the punky-inspired ‘do. Candlelit makeup by MUA Fara Homidi was glazed on the high points of Paloma’s brow & lids for a lit-from-within finish.

BILLIE ELLISH

Opting for the modern route to the traditional pompadour, Billie’s high-rise updo was kept rock piled high with spiky ends. 

MAISIE WILLIAMS

Amongst the most striking looks of the night, Maisie Williams literally left no strand untouched to her vampy, silver screen beauty moment. Speaking of, hair artist Joey George artfully placed embellished, S-waved hairpieces atop Williams’ head for a striking 20s appeal. Eyes, by way of MUA Yumi Lee were winged outward & finished with a berry-stained lip.

KAIA GERBER

Strand-to-strand, lengthy lush locks are the not-so-new hair trend that’s a forever mainstay.

ANOK YAI

With varying lengths of hairstyles seen on this year’s carpet, the options of beauty were limitless. Take Anok Yai, whose razor-sharp ‘do proves that even the shortest lengths are equally stunning. Echoing each other, Anok’s cheeks & brows were highlighted with a pinky shade for a beautified, contrasting beauty moment to the micro ‘do.

TESSA THOMPSON

Personifying femininity at its rosiest, Tessa’s painterly eyes and lips welcomed pretty-in-pink softness as her gravity-defying, twisted updo edged the look to modernity. 

BELLA HADID

A soft hand from MUA Raisa Flowers laid the literal foundation to Bella’s Victorian-inspired look. Fresh, healthy looking skin with a gentle touch of definition around the eyes were paired with her middle-part, half-up half-down updo (and showy micro braids). 

LAURA HARRIER

Velvety skin by way of Chanel Beauty and artistry by Hung Vanngo sealed Laura’s gilded beauty moment. A palette of smokey hues graced on Harrier’s eyes, deftly counterpart with a cerulean blue shade on the tear ducts and brow bone. Hair by maestro Lacy Redway edged the bygone look into today. 

GIGI HADID

Gigi Hadid knows when to bring lip service. Lips lacquered by MUA Erin Parsons were hyper glossed-out with darker crimson red added with a pat of a truer, vintage-y hue in the centre. 

PRECIOUS LEE

Cover-star Precious Lee can hardly not make a moment when the spotlight is on. Her dramatically-informed brows were made bleached in thanks to Marcelo Gutierrez in combination with a thinly, hyper-winged liner. A viscose-knit balaclava was placed atop keeping the focus on Precious’ stunningly futuristic beauty look.

SIMONE ASHLEY

Using all Pat McGrath makeup, MUA Alex Babsky gave Bridgerton star Simone Ashley a look that’s worthy of red carpet romance with a wing of the eye. To contrast the makeup, Peter Lux transformed Simone’s hair as it was kept goddess-like and lengthy with a slicked, edgy appeal. 

Couture Week’s Best Beauty Moments

At Couture – beauty was conceptual. Beauty was realized as an exploration of other-worlds. Fendi’s starry interpretation of beauty was made heroine whereas Valentino’s dramatic eyes were met with hyper-wings & feathery plumes. Hyperreal skin wouldn’t go amiss at Schiaparelli. These are the moments to not miss for Spring. 

SCI-FI OTHERWORLDLINESS AT FENDI

The starry veil of a crystallized galaxy was mirrored as inspiration and dotted atop the face for Fendi. Fendi’s sci-fi realization of Spring beauty was crystal-clear & in thanks to hair artist Guido Palau & makeup artist Peter Philips. Deliciously glossed hair was kept parted & fringed via Palau. Made heroine, needless to say. Placed throughout the face were micro crystals to be the ultimate facial halo. No additional accessories required. To achieve this look? Dot a micro gem on the inner corners of the eyes or equally as shield across the lid for a look that’s just as otherworldly. 

DIOR’S NEW LOOK

PHOTOGRAPHY BY ACIELLE / STYLEDUMONDE

Dior’s love language for sooty, lived-in eyes were decidedly made anew for Spring. And it’s the eye trend that keeps lashes batting. The trend in question – underlined white liner, the hero beauty look. Think: the upside of sultry shadow. Thickly-lined white blocks graduated around the eye shape which emphasized it’s natural under line. To tightline the waterlines & roots of the lashes, MUA Peter Philips used the Diorshow Khôl pencil in 009 White Khôl which was then completed with the Diorshow On Stage Liner in 001 Matte White layered underneath the natural line. Gentle, soft-focus illumination informed the look.

HYPERREAL SKIN AT SCHIAPARELLI

Skin was standout at Schiaparelli. It was made surreal & secular through Dame Pat McGrath’s genius with glow. Cheekbones? It was a (golden-champagne) highlight. Eyes were maintained as clean with a touch of shadow to mattify the lids. Other looks included a heavier-hand with further shadow & bejewelled glam. Opt for the Skin Fetish Sublime Perfection Foundation and Sublime Perfection Concealer for runway-ready dewiness. 

BEAUTIFIED EYES AT VALENTINO

Feathery plumage & ultra-extended graphic winged liner informed Valentino’s Haute beauty. Longingness is beautified through the bold looks as seen throughout. This echoed the emotionally-grounded collection as a (literal) extension of oneself. McGrath emphasized the strength of the upper lash line (either by way of feathers or hyper-winged liner). Glowing & fresh skin was a continuity paired with the lashed looks. 

SS22’s Best Beauty Moments from Fashion Month

IMAGE: VALENTINA LI

Beauty is as bold as ever. Spring’s exciting glimpse into 2022 draws the line between the fantastical & the fresh – proving directional, unapologetic beauty is for new beginnings ahead. Pro MUA Diane Kendal harked on shadowy, lived-in eyes at KHAITE to mirror the longingness to feel once more post-isolation. At Supriya Lele, lips were glossified with a chocolate brown lip service. Grunge for 2022 is the word of mouth. Pro Pablo Rodrigues gave wet, out-of-shower skin a high-fashion update with a strobe-lit, glowy finish. From undonely-kempt tresses to the facial features that stick, aesthetic escapism reigned on this year’s beauty dossiers. 

FACIAL FEATURES

For Simone Rocha, beauty is a secular experience. From Thomas de Kluyver, adornment came in the way of Gothically-imagined hand-pressed images of cherubs placed on the face and body throughout. This contrasted the baptismal-looking dipped hair, which was accessorized with beaded crowns. Cheeks were made to sparkle as skin was left youthful & healthy. 

CHOCOLATE LIP SERVICE

Grunge is the word of mouth for 2022. Pro Hiromi Ueda glossified lips at Supriya Lele with a chocolatey-brown hue that’s oh-so reminiscent of nineties lip service. Ueda made statement lips sultry-sweet with the vampy appeal. All impact without apologies, bold lips are the nostalgic trend that’s sealed with a kiss for 2022 beauty. Opt for Laura Mercier Rouge Essentiel Cream Lipstick in Chocolate Divin.

PUNKY WINGS

At Chloe, consider the (winged) point made by makeup artist Hannah Murray. Liner became ‘surf punk’ all thanks to the MUA’s horizontal approach to the typically flicked-out shape. From the tear ducts to the corners of the eyes, neon orange graced the lash line. Elsewhere, the face was kept healthy-looking with eyes given dabs of wet-looking gloss. 

BALMY, OUT-OF-OCEAN SKIN

When it comes to a glass-like skin finish, it’s the balmy, out-of-water touch that takes the face from the ocean to high-fashion effortlessness. MUA Pablo Rodrigues artfully applied highlighter by way of Illamasqua to the high points of the brow bone, cupid’s bow, cheeks, and chin at David Koma. To capture this look, opt for Illamasqua’s Beyond Liquid Highlighter – OMG or E.L.F. Electric Mood x Tove Lo Glassy Skin Balm.

LIVED-IN EYES

Sooty, lived-in eyes were the focus for 2022 makeup. As with lips, makeup leaned into a grunge aesthetic which timelessly defined a decade. Rimmed coal eyes at Sandy Liang paid a statement to the Spring/Summer presentation. Lids & under eyes received the smudgy treatment. At Eftychia, MUA Becca Wordingham graced eyes with a creamy, blendable pencil to add effortless wow. At KHAITE, Diane Kendal lightly smoked-out lids to capture shadowiness. To achieve this look, opt for 19/99 Barna Precision Colour Pencil. 

FANTASY LASHES

Lashed-out, doll-like eyes are what’s to be expected. Makeup done by way of Valentina Li  proved to be a standout at this year’s Fashion Week. Individual lashes were expertly placed surrounding the eyes in a nonchalant fashion proving fantasy & cool do co-exist. The look embodied a come-as-you-are sense that’s synonymous to Spring freshness. This look can be completed with Tower 28 BeachPlease Luminous Tinted Balm in Golden Hour

KHAITE SS22

Leave it to Khaite’s Cate Holstein to sartorially turnover a feeling. Musings on mood – Spring for Khaite is an evolved, post-isolation consciousness that’s gritted within a sense of place – of belonging once more. The label’s impossibly-chic repertoire approaches womenswear with a pragmatic otherworldliness to femininity, ever-reliably being the antidote to new season beginnings – and rebirth. Introducing Spring.

Styling followed democratic shapes & structure. Gently-filled down informed luminous coats & jackets. Harness-like silk straps became focal points which balanced floaty & poplin silhouettes. A liberating in-focus feature which grounded lighter ensembles. Western dressing was a touchpoint within the nineties-influenced collection. Leather & suede were a force throughout. Lengthening ruched dresses gave subtle sex appeal. 

Escapist tones reigned at Khaite such as ivory, sooty noirs, and touches of khaki. Contrasts of textures & luminosity were at play: sequins balanced the solid tones & heavier-appeal of the cozier pieces such as the bombers. Metallic tones called in Spring which played as silvery adornment to trenches and bustier tops. And then there was THAT dress: A Swarovski-crystallized sheer dress slipped on by model Julia Nobis

Makeup and hair mirrored the collection. No feature overpowered the other – rather, gentle definition informed beauty throughout. Everyday makeup became stunningly beautiful by way of MUA Diane Kendal. Lightly smoked-out lids were given neutral hue eyeshadow for colour & contour. Eyes became lashed with sweeps of mascara, followed by brushed-out brows for texture. The genius of the look? The cheeks welcomed iridescence whereas the shadowy-dimness of the eyes harked on our longingness to feel once again. 

Pinky lips and mouths brought in new femininity. Porcelain skin was canvas to the makeup. Hair – as with previous collections – was undonely-kempt. Ease of tresses & locks were effortlessly groomed. Moodiness transcended to locks by the hands of hair-artist Duffy. As emotional as the collection was – strength was imbued from stitch to strand throughout. 

Within the worst of the pandemic year, Khaite knows we’re still within the thick of it all. Never too far to deviate from the definitive New York wardrobe, Holstein answers with necessity over frivolity. What’s most authentic, works. Not over the top, the label’s collection approaches womenswear with a gritty earthiness that calls to the Khaite girl: Home. To Khaite? That’s Spring.

Jacquemus AW21 Ready-to-Wear

New heights. Beginnings afresh. At Jacquemus, “La Montagne” is an ‘en plein air’ ode to the summit of our expectations following isolation. Bright & beautiful, AW21 looks as flashy as convincing. 

The showcase was inviting and directional. Surreal yet grounded. Simon Porte opted for an IRL runway for his Fall Ready-to-Wear see-now-buy-now collection. For those of us who missed a show, Jacquemus delivered. Make way for feel-so-good fashion & unapologetic colour fever (i.e. fiery tang & splashy pink). Anything but boring. Trust was a theme throughout. Outdoorsy harness-detailing dangled from cropped zipped shirts & attached to sheath, trompe l’oeil dresses. Silhouettes were as deconstructionist as freeing. 

Headlining afoot? Enter Kendall, Bella, & Adut. Bella donned a straight-fitted elasticated waist skirt, finished with earthy crinkling. A part-armour, part bralette graced the decolletage. Shearling mules completed the tonal ensemble. Adut? It was an 80s colour palette which ruled no exception. Splashy pink & engine red soared sirens. For Kendall – it was all show with an ultra-cropped short-sleeved cardi with swaths of the fuzzy fabric secured together with a ‘JACQUEMUS’ closure. 

The clasp was one of the details made hero for the collection, as also seen on model Devyn Garcia’s sensual, hickory-eggplant silk chemise & skirt set. Model Jill Kortleve sported a midi knit dress with thin straps held together with that ‘JACQUEMUS’ hardware. Open-vent trousers & boxy blazers were seen. Adapting from sartorial 80s & made anew, the collection was very future nostalgic. 

Makeup was barely-there yet luminous. MUA Hiromi Ueda opted for a freshness that was athletic yet beautifying. A healthy base with a natural-looking brow & rosy, in-the-hills flush. Pared-back & soft, it was a sporty finish to complete the ensembles. Hair was followed on course via hairstylist Cyndia Harvey with earthy styles maintained in their most natural form. Hair was kept brushed away from the face, parted-down.  

Neon green, atmospheric sky blue, deepended noir, & a palette of neutrals were seen throughout. Extremist lengths, shapes, & layering took to nature for inspiration (i.e. enwrapped sleeping-bag style skirts, itty crop tops, & sun hats). Breathing new energy into AW21, the pieces felt lively. What sets Jacquemus apart? Playing loud.

Feel again.

KHAITE Resort 2022

Resort 2022 for Khaite is summed as: When We Were ‘We’. 

Mood of the moment, Khaite’s Cate Holstein captures the undergrounds of a post-pandemic feeling. By way of intuition, comfort re-emerges as a touchpoint for 2022 dressing (i.e. 90s informed, easy silhouettes). 

Grit. Ease. Romance. Energy. For Khaite, Resort is all about instinct. Sewn within practicality, it is about identity. It carries a seriousness with utmost attention to agency, yet uplifted with an aura of empathetic femininity. Approaching & otherworldly, Holstein’s intent is moving.

Romance grounded Hellenic-style dresses & sets, with unending draping & gathered ruching. It was felt within its airiness. A dropped-waist jersey crepe dress paid accompaniment & contrast to the Grecian-like gowns, which was completed with a scoop neckline & relaxed fit. Ethereal & earthy colour palettes informed the collection.

THAT cardi-bralette set which sparked all radars is back in tow in a pink raspberry hue. An enduring staple to a stylish wardrobe. Sartorial iterations of the 70s (i.e. eyelet, open-back dresses & a multi-hued oversized pullover), was on display. Sport-luxe was as chic as ever. Pillowy puffers prove to be the stylish shields for cooler temperatures. A must. Khaite’s rendition of the biker short-bra top combo was hero of the collection, with its cursive namesake on the waist & underband to perfect the ensemble. 

Hair was kept undonely human yet romantic. By way of hairstylist Joey George, evidenced was touch. Model Alyda Grace’s lengthy locks were kept lived-in whereas Emily Miller’s feathery bob was swept in 70s layers. Model Hiandra Martinez was graced with cornrows, secured with a finishing low bun & flyaway-free hair taming gel. 

Makeup artist Cyndle Komarovski kept makeup stoic yet fresh. Gentle luminosity informed skin complexion (think: candlelit, lit-from-within) but not obviously so. Sculpting contour carved cheekbones. Brows were a feature point of the paired-back look, as the always steady facial architecture.

Resort for Khaite? Remembering who we were means to see ourselves again. It means through. 

To be ‘we’.

The PVC Shoe: The Ultimate Summer Trend for 2021

Call it as we must. The mid-nineties to early-noughties have imprinted their sartorial influence this season & a new, post-pandemic world involves a wardrobe that reckons with an unabashed, sexual confidence. PVC shoes make this case. It’s the trend to be waxed (plastic) about. 

This saucy style has re-emerged as a compelling argument for more-is-more. It definitely does all the talking. Fashion is certainly having its footing with this summery throwback. Amina Muaddi ornaments her fluted, pyramidal-heeled styles with crystal encrustment. The ultimate when-fairytales-come-true “glass” slipper – though one shouldn’t leave these amiss after the crack of midnight. Gianvito Rossi opts towards a sleek approach with a pointed toe sole finish. It-girl footwear crush Paris Texas unleashes the aughts & pairs their styles with a Western-style redux detailing (think: faux croc). Designed with copious colour (i.e. pastel pink & neon green), & serious embellishment – it makes way for an eclectic, unapologetic femininity. Leaving little to the imagination in all its reveal, is this the subtly sexy shoe for inhibition-less IRL dating? It’s certainly fantastic. 

Delicate yet striking, bold yet sexy, the PVC shoe lends itself as the ultimate party-ready adornment ranging from ultra glamour to refined-pretty. Perfect for wintry party-wear as well. Better yet? The eye travels further when wearing this style as it adds length to any frame for an elongated silhouette. It’s an empowering, transformative stance. Retro yet oh-so current, these are meant for utter bliss.

Style Tip: These are meant for show. Wear these at your next cocktail party or gathering. Style with either a monochromatic or a saturated-hued dress. Your favourite LBD would add balance to the style. Wanting to add a dose of off-duty chic? Pair with your favourite denim. Cropped works best. Highlight these with an open-vent legging for cooler days. 

The Simone Rocha x H&M Collection Has Arrived: Here’s What to Discover…

The dreamy Simone Rocha x H&M drop has just arrived…and it is as ever Simone as her penchant for ribbons and beads would show. The trademark collection embodies an avant-garde, come-as-you-are sense, a freshness that’s expectedly Spring including lightweight trenches, breathy cotton, & beaded knits. 

Relying on Fashion’s familiar faces such as Tess McMillan, Adwoa Aboah, Kaia Gerber, & Paloma Elsesser, the multi-month campaign was brought to life (literally!) with THAT Phygital Pop-Up Book.

Simone gets her audiences lost in her maddening attention to detail – yet always, the beautified garments maintain their grounding in Earthy practicality. And it’s ethereal perfection. What can one expect? The Rocha’ed genius of contrast. Dresses are flirtatiously designed to highlight the waist through the Irish Chinese designer’s signature voluminous sleeves and hips. 

Sheer coats were etched with romantic details i.e., THOSE headwave-making beaded breast-outliners as shown in her SS21 Collection. Elegance is added via pearl-trimmed collars on an off-white cloqué dress. Lace detailing completes a painterly floral dress. Bows are made to modern corsetry on tulle dresses and blouses. Cloqué fabric (think: jacquard) was romantically made anchor to the dresses. Subtle hints to post-lockdown flirtation?

Simone tributes her Irish roots with doses of tartan grunging floaty frocks, and thus edging the collection with a complete balance of femininity. Pearled brogues, feathered ballerinas, & chunky-soled slides are what’s in for footwear, and whose artful eccentricity is found in her homage & heritage to Hong Kong. Hair (by way of Rocha’s go-to hairstylist Cyndia Harvey), is preened into ribboned bow clips and statement-making headpieces, securing this collection as a portrait of Simone’s femininity.
