Video: MYER Spring/Summer 2013 Collection Launch
The Hordern Pavilion at Fox Studios in Sydney was jam-packed with Aussie A-listers for the MYER Spring/Summer 2013 Collection Launch last night, beauties. From MYER ambassador (and runway superstar) Jennifer Hawkins, the stunning (and newly brunette) Laura Dundovic, to former Miss Universe Australia Jesinta Campbell and The Voice’s Sarah De Bono, it truly was a feast for the celebrity-lover’s eyes.
But we weren’t there to celebrity spot, beauties. On no. bh was there to spy on the hair and make-up, and thieve insider tips and tricks from people in-the-know. And that’s exactly what we did. Pinning down Hair Director Kevin Murphy (yes, the man behind the KEVIN.MURPHY product collection) and YSL’s Australian Make-up Associate Natasha Severino for a quick video interview, we’ve got the looks, the prods, the trends and the snaps from the African masterpiece that was the MYER Spring/Summer 2013 Collection Launch…
This season, it was all about emulating an African goddess when it came to the models’ strands: “To complement the colourful print-on-print designs we’ll be seeing on the runway this season, we wanted to create a hair look that was simple and modern, yet sophisticated and sexy, with its own striking pop of colour. Taking inspiration from MYER’s African shoot we decided to create a sexy, pulled back, ombre dip-dyed style,” says Hair Director, Kevin Murphy.
Natasha Severino chose to showcase YSL’s stunning make-up collections with two looks. Look One was inspired by a bronzed goddess shining under the Sahara sun (think sun kissed skin, cheekbones highlighted in hues of bronze and gold, subtle lips and dramatic lashes), and Look Two was a little more luxe, a little more exotic, with a polished, luminous complexion with radiant cheeks and a strong pop of orange on the lips. The result? Two striking runway looks that go from runway to real way oh-so easily.
What did you think of the beauty looks from the MYER Spring/Summer 2013 Collection Launch? Are you keen to recreate it at-home now or come summertime? You really should. Both the hair and the make-up are insanely wearable…
