During the academic year, our creator, Coleen Scott, is an instructor at the wonderful and well-known private school in Brooklyn, Saint Ann’s. (Alums include Zac Posen and Lena Dunham). Over the last two years, Coleen’s High School students in Costume Design, have been blogging on Tumblr with weekly inspirations. The blog is image based, and is truly from the point of view of the teenagers, who clearly have their fingers on the pulse of what is now. Please enjoy Tailors In Motion!
With awards season ahead, we couldn’t help ourselves, and made some make-up suggestions for some of the lady Golden Globe Nominees. We think some of them could switch it up, take some risks, and some would look beautiful as ever in classic styles. Scroll down for our picks, and then tune in to your favorite red carpet coverage this Sunday to see what the stars choose.
Amy Poehler, who stars in Parks and Rec, would look great in this natural makeup look. By C.F.
Cate Blanchett, nominated for the film “Blue Jasmine”, wears very natural makeup. Glowing skin will highlight her features without looking like she is wearing too much make-up. She is very fair, so anything more than a nude lip will overwhelm her make-up look. Cate also has very bright blue eyes, so a light shimmer over the eyelid with mascara or fake eyelashes will make her eyes pop, while still enhancing her natural beauty. By R.G.
This make-up look would look amazing on Julie Delpy at the Globes on Sunday! By V.B.
This spring make-up would look great on Kerry Washington, nominated for her role in the television show “Scandal”. She usually experiments with lip color and has neutral eye shadow. This look shows a bit more eye color than Kerry Washington usually wears, with a nude lip for an updated, and fashion forward look. By A.C.
Although Sally Hawkins, nominated for a supporting role in “Blue Jasmine”, usually wears a more subtle lip, she would also look great with a dramatic red lip for a change. By C.F.
Tatiana Maslany is a phenomenal actress, as demonstrated by her work on “Orphan Black” (on which she plays 7 different characters!). She often wears a small amount of black eyeliner, but I think she would look amazing with extreme amounts of black “rebel” eyeliner, which was very popular on the Spring/Summer 2014 runways. Kristin Wayne (whose website is here: http://cms.kristinwayne.com ) has put black eyeliner on Tatiana before, and I think this is the logical next step for Tatiana’s evolving look. By S.B.
One more suggestion for Tatiana Maslany: she would be even more devastatingly hot with a mixture of pastel purple shadow and inky liner to enhance her brown eyes and help them stand out against her dark hair. By A.D.
Zooey Deschanel: undisputed queen of quirk. Known not only for her role on “New Girl”, but her for her bold, beautiful, blue eyes as well. A wash of of pale blue would accentuate her natural cerulean hue without overpowering her smile. Revlon ColorStay Lip Liner would provide a perfect, matte finish. A modern twist on a classic look—so Zooey! With polished skin to top it all off, Zooey would surely smolder at this Sunday’s Golden Globes. But can the Queen of Cuteness ever look bad? By E.L.
