Backstage at Alexander Wang Spring 2012

WWD went behind the scenes at the designer's spring show.

Again, Alexander Wang catered to his mainstay client, the downtown, edgy girl who likes to look pretty but in a rough and gritty way. Makeup, or lack thereof, bowed to the Nineties, with raw, fresh skin created by Diane Kendal for MAC, dabbed only with moisturizer. Eyes played center stage not with color, but with Kohl eyeliner applied to the top and bottom of lids, which was then removed with moisturizer, and reapplied for a worn-in look. No mascara. No lip gloss. No blush. Hair, By Guido for Redken, was created to look wet with a leave-in volume mousse and finished off with Redken’s new Argan-6, a moisture and shine oil. Wave was created by Sultra’s Bombshell iron. Nails were created by a partnership between Wang and Sally Hansen and executed by Jin Soon, whereby Wang helped design three colors for next spring, Oxblood (a deep red), Parchment ( a sheer nude) and Petrol (a blue-black.) At the show models wore Parchment.
