The Face: "She's a queen, not a vampire, with a soft spot for 1920's glamour," explains Maybelline NY makeup artist Nigel Stanislaus. Although the hair stole our eye, it was the wash of gold shimmer through the brows that really won us over. To get the look, Stanislaus suggests you try your hand at combining a loose golden eye shadow with a clear lip balm to press the product into the brows. And as for the lips, NS decided to pull the pin on the rich red lip in favour of a more subtle dusty-pink number.
The threads: It’s not hard to see why Johanna Johnson has every Hollywood A-Lister and their dogs knocking at her studio door. Having dressed the likes of Angelina Jolie and Christina Hendricks, the Aussie designers knack for making even the most elaborate gowns look effortless is second to none and will no doubt see her designs waltzing down more and more red carpets.
Luxe details like rich velvet, heavy-duty embellishment and fantasy feathers have all made the cut in her debut Fashion Week appearance, each with just the right amount of skin showing whether it’s a deep-v neckline or an exposed back.
The peeps: The first ever Merecedes-Benz Presents Australian show was hotly anticipated and did not disappoint. The glittering gold runway was a fitting stage for the incredible creations from designer Johanna Johnston - champagne, gold, silver, navy and charcoal wowed the crowd presented in leather, beading, silk and feathers. Basically, try imagining what the wedding party would look like if George Clooney married Olivia Palermo and you get the luxurious idea! Clearly a hot ticket, the stars were out in force with a completely packed house. Model Samantha Harris closed the show, walking with the designer who (if we happened to be attnding a red carpet this week!) would be our pick for go-to glam.
