Joan Smalls

"Joan's dress is a very simply bodycon style, so we wanted to give the hair a little drama," explained hairstylist Andrew Fitzsimons. "We decided to go for a parted look with a voluminous, wet, and wavy side to complement the fluidity of the dress, and a smooth side with a bunch of randomly placed bobby pins for an avant garde twist, a nod to the Comme Des Garcons aesthetic." Smalls' slicked strands complemented the edginess of her faux piercing lip art perfectly.

Kim Kardashian

Kardashian's makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic used Kiehl's and Chanel products to create her clean and fresh makeup look. "I added a little white matte color to her eyes to pop the dress a bit," he explained. "Nothing too edgy. Rei Kawakubo does a lot of clean skin on the runway and I was inspired by that."

Thandie Newton

"I was inspired by the '80s Commes Des Garçon photos by Paolo Roversi," explained makeup artist Jo Strettell for NARS. "The models had long, slim bodies with black eyes, fresh skin, and nude lips. I immediately thought of this reference when I saw Thandie's Monse dress, which was covered in jewels."

For Gigi's look, makeup artist Erin Parsons was informed by the Comme Des Garçons theme, as well as her deconstructed nude Tommy Hilfiger gown with black fishnet stockings. "We dubbed the 'whisper wing and whisper brows'," she explained. "The wing is avante garde, deconstructed, and created with an open and outward motion that is bold and fierce to match the volume of the gown."
