THE R I S E O F THE MODE L S

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - BEAUTY BAZAAR -

So­cial me­dia has also sent some mod­els to su­per­star­dom. Cara Delev­ingne boasts 23.5 mil­lion In­sta­gram fol­low­ers and a stag­ger­ing 4.3 mil­lion on Twit­ter. The so­cial me­dia queen may have been well-con­nected to be­gin with – her sis­ters are Poppy and Chloe, “It Girls” in their own rights; and her par­ents are af­flu­ent so­cial roy­alty – but the su­per­model has come a long way from be­ing fa­mous for her bold brows.

This mo­men­tous push for “real life” girls has also in­spired some de­sign­ers. “The look is about street cred­i­bil­ity,” nods Diane Ken­dal, who worked on the make-up with Alexan­der Wang’s girls. “We just toned with rose­wa­ter and used the Nars mois­turiser. We’re putting con­cealer if there’s any spots and any blem­ishes, and brush­ing over eye­brows and fill­ing in when nec­es­sary.” At Diane von Fursten­berg’s Spring/Sum­mer ’16 show, all the In­sta­girls were there. “All very glam – and I hate the word glam,” en­thuses Tom Pecheux, back­stage make-up artist. For­get su­per­mod­els. Clearly, the winds are in favour of the In­sta­girls.
