How to Accessorize a Carolina Herrera Gown

With Carolina Herrera’s runway collections comes an array of floor-sweeping gowns that require an elegant beauty look to match.

With collarbone-grazing necklines, hair is best worn swept-up so that the silhouette can be seen in full effect. Hairstylist, Orlando Pita, crafted some sculptural updos backstage for the Carolina Herrera Spring 2015 show. Hair was slicked back into a hairline-raising ponytail, which was then maneuvered into a starched loop with origami-style precision. Pita once confided to me that his creations aren’t designed to be recreated by the lady on the street and this is certainly one hairstyle which would require the adept hands of a professional to get the desired outcome.

With the sleek, sumo-style hairdo firmly in place, makeup artist, Diane Kendal, washed a metallic, champagne shade over the eyelids and set to work on blending no fewer than five shades of M.A.C. lipstick to get the perfect, glassy pout.
