Posen's Regal Rock

Napoleon's first wife Joséphine de Beauharnais inspired hair and makeup fit for royalty to complement Zac Posen's Fall collection.

Napoleon's first wife Joséphine de Beauharnais inspired hair and makeup fit for royalty to complement Zac Posen's Fall collection. "It's French courtesan opulence meets punk," said Odile Gilbert for L'Oréal Professionnel.


Gilbert used Expansion Body Activating Mousse for volume and then swept hair high into a "large chignon" after it was teased at the roots. Extreme Holding Spray sealed the look and a braided headband with studs added a rocker edge to the elegant bouffant.

Makeup, done by Lucia Pieroni for MAC pushed the look into modern times with a fresh orange lip (MAC's Morange lipstick) and a carbon-colored eye. Pieroni rimmed eyes with black pencil and used Blackberry shadow on the lid. "My inspiration is a Tim Burton girl with huge, big smoky eyes, lashes," said Pieroni, who added false lashes. "She looks a little hollow, a little Gothic."
