Bling Wings on the Runway

Runway makeup artistry knows no boundaries, as proven time and again by the ever-inventive Tom Pecheux. For a select three models on the Anthony Vaccarello Fall/Winter 2016 runway, the beauty maestro blinged rocker-esque cat-eye wings using row upon row of artfully placed crystals.

The source of the stones: dangling diamante earrings from Vaccarello’s collection, which Pecheux broke (with permission!) one by one, and filed the edges to remove any sharp bits. After painting a thick black slash of a wing, he affixed each row of crystals into an upward swooping arc, lending the effect of the most intensely gilded lashes ever to grace a face.
