Runway Report: Kate Spade Gets Even More Fun
Posted by Sarah Smith
To celebrate Kate Spade's 20th anniversary, the brand pulled out all the stops by debuting a fresh, lighthearted spring collection with a Gwen Stefani-esque rockabilly edge thanks to the models' bold makeup and coiffed hair.
My favorite highlights? The dewy blushed cheek and the peppy ponytail reminiscent of 1950s Barbie. See a resemblance?

1 Jouer makeup artist Neil Scibelli cancelled out the models' natural lip color with a sweep of concealer. Then, he topped them with a sheer coat of the brand's new hydrating nude-rose lipstick shade (coming out in Spring 2013!) in Olivia.
2 White kohl eyeliner was drawn along the top lid to open up the eyes, and a dramatic whoosh of mint green and blue shadow was applied in a boxy, wavy shape from the inner corner, ending in a winged tail.
3 Ah, the cheeks! Lovely pretty cheeks. Neil swept on the Jouer's Cheek + Lip Tint in Peony (isn't it fresh looking?) with a foundation brush to really blend it in. To finish it off, he dabbed the Cream Eyeshadow in Feather on the tops of the cheekbones as a highlighter.

6 Tommy Buckett, a stylist at Marie Robinson Salon in NYC, worked with Garnier products like the new Sleek & Shine 5-in-1 Serum Spray to slick back models' strands into a '50s Barbie-inspired ponytail.
7 The curls of the ponytail are pinned in place (so they don't loosen up before the show), but, here, you can see the silhouette Tommy was going for: A twirled lock in front, volume at the crown, and a bouncy, pony finish.
8 Here's Tommy's Garnier stash. He lightly spritzed on the Frizz Control hair spray to set each style in place and prevent flyaways.
9 Deborah Lippmann of Deborah Lippmann Nail Polish created this gingham look based on Kate Spade fabric swatches. She and her staff sat in her office for a week filing these press-ons into edgy stiletto-shaped perfection. And though the nails were navy, orange, mint, and yellow, the models' toe nails were painted solid white.
