I’ve been ob­sessed with the ’70s disco era ever since I first laid eyes on Guy Bour­din’s provoca­tive works years ago. It was a re­mark­able time—one filled with ex­cess and glam­our that saw the birth of David Bowie’s gen­der-blur­ring cos­tumes along with Diane von Furstenberg’s fab­u­lous pi­o­neer­ing wrap dress. On the makeup front, drap­ing—a blush ap­pli­ca­tion tech­nique pi­o­neered by Way Bandy, favoured by Grace Jones and of­ten seen in the works of Guy Bour­din—was de r riguer. ig This sea­son, the state­ment beauty look resur­faced via makeup mae­stro Pat McGrath’s mag­i­cal touch at Valentino (14), layer ing ir ides­cent pig­ments on the lids for an ethe­real ef­fect. Drap­ing also gained street cred when paired with the edgy streetwear on dis­play at the Fenty x Puma show. Take your cues from the run­ways and com­plete the look with Saint Lau­rent’s dra­matic flounces (7), which would have looked just as per­fect on Grace Jones as it did on Ri­hanna. If you pre­fer some­thing more low-key, pick Roland Mouret’s strap­less jump­suit (4) and Dior’s high jew­ellery cock­tail ring (6) for a glam­orous night out. Or chan­nel Jerry Hall frol­ick­ing in an Eres swim­suit (12) on the French Riviera with over­sized sun­glasses (11) that serve dou­ble duty for sun pro­tec­tion as well as hid­ing from the ever-present pa­parazzi. ■
