Trend Alert SS12: The metallic fete

By  April 11, 2012
Fendi SS12 showcased the most dramatic of metallic eyes using expertly applied gold and silver leaf

Gold and silver leaf added a striking touch at Fendi SS12

Sending the girls out swathed in a metallic-glow, Emilio Pucci, Just Cavalli, Suno, along with many others, added warmth to the season whilst contrasting the feminine minimalism seen at other shows. An impactful touch if there was.

Carefully smoothed upwards and across cheek bones, swept over lids and blended into brows, gold, silver and bronze put the pep into the beauty look, and never more so than at Fendi. Here, gold and silver leaf adorned the eyelid and brow, delicate yet decadent and most certainly striking.

But, even the demure shimmers caught the eye. The Diane Von Furstenberg gal – expertly created by James Kaliardos for MAC – showcased a highlighted eye that paid attention to both the inner and outer corners whilst over at Donna Karan New York “a Sporty, Sexy Eighties Yasmin Le Bon” was fashioned by Charlotte Tilbury for MAC. The result? A perfected luminous look.
