There’s a curious new trend happening in backstage backstage for Fall 2015 in Paris, and that’s the double beauty look. At Manish Arora, two-toned metallic wigs sparkled under the runway lights. At Celine, Dick Page hand-painted bespoke looks on each of the models. And at Louis Vuitton, model Fernanda Hin Lin Ly’s cotton candy strands stood out amongst the supes. The most notable take on this trend happened at the Chanel Fall 2015 show in Paris, where the winged eyeliner and OTT smoked out shadow distinguished the “girls” from the “boys”. Makeup artist Tom Pecheux loaded up some girls with heavy liner (like Kendall Jenner and former ELLE Canada cover girl Grace Mahary) and others (like Cara Delevigne and Canada’s own Emma Genier, below) with dense, powdery black shadow that was blended up to their overtly arched brows.

And the hair was just as diverse. Hair expert Sam McKnight tied ribbons and secured golden barrettes to the knots on the “girls” and gave the “boys” a super slick, severe ponytail. Tres chic, non?

About Katherine Flemming
Lipstick is the greatest beauty product of all time, and yes, I’m that girl who wears it to the beach and hot yoga. What? Sometimes, I leave fuchsia marks on the fawn-coloured coats of my two wiggly pugs. Working in the beauty department, I’m a firm believer in sampling everything that goes into the magazine—whether it’s a wet hair, serum-loaded eye patches or chemical peels (and I’m not afraid to take the trends for a spin while I’m at my desk). Since I also cover the health beat, I’m loyal to crazy intense training like CrossFit, hot yoga and outdoor boot camps—I’m even willing to sample a diet trend or two—though I’m pretty faithful to Paleo (until I see a donut).
