Milling about the Chanel air­port ter­mi­nal, all set to board Chanel Air­lines, were mod­els pos­ing as pas­sen­gers—geared up in stylish tweed and trol­ley bags with avi­a­tor-tan lined eyes that re­flected the gor­geous sunny weather that awaited at their des­ti­na­tion. And what bet­ter way to de­scribe the beauty of spring and sum­mer weath­ers than blue, blue eyes? This is not just any blue—it is vi­brant, a gra­di­ent of the In­ter­na­tional Klein Blue, smokey blue, cobalt, and rich baby blue. When Nars cos­met­ics’ name­sake founder François Nars dabbed a creamy azure onto the in­ner cor­ners of the mod­els’ eyes at Marc Ja­cobs, it was the be­gin­ning of a high sea­son of blues. Back­stage beauty mae­stro Lu­cia Pieroni car­ried on the baton with sap­phirerimmed eyes for the girls at Jonathan Saunders in Lon­don. For the woman who has never con­sid­ered elec­tric blue as part of her eye­shadow reper­toire, now is a good time to start.


De­scrib­ing the big­gest trend of the sea­son, make-up vir­tu­oso Lyne Des­noy­ers says, “There is a real vi­brancy to these looks ... they’re en­er­getic.” In­deed, the ap­pli­ca­tion of such egre­gious shades of blue was equally ex­tra­or­di­nary. From the graphic strips of paint at Mis­soni to the airy spray-painted lot at Chanel and Crea­tures of Com­fort, there was some­thing vi­va­cious and dy­namic about the looks. At So­nia Rykiel, glit­tery shades of dark blue res­onated with disco dance floors, Jerry Hall, and the ’70s.
