I couldn’t wait any longer to write about Bryce Dallas Howard again, and rummaging through the material I had available, I stopped in awe, admiring her outfit for the Jurassic World premiere held at the Dolby Theatre on June 9, 2015 in Hollywood, California.
The dress in question was a blue navy open back Emilio Pucci dress from the Fall 2014 Ready-to-Wear collection, with a gold chain caressing her back and a plunging neckline in the front. The contrast between her ivory skin, the color of the dress and her lipstick made this ensemble one of the sultriest I’ve ever seen on a red carpet.
Howard accessorized the look with simple dainty jewelry: an Anita Ko ear cuff, an Eddera Gold Olive Branch ring and Jennifer Meyer earrings, rings and bracelet. A pair of black velvet Saint Laurent pumps finished off the outfit.
Luckily, there was a long and in-depth Byrdie.com interview with the actress and her glam team in which they shared all the secrets to help us common humans recreate Howard‘s look.
The dress was love at first sight during a shopping trip Bryce had with her publicist: “It was the first one I put on, and immediately it became the hero. I love how I feel covered up and exposed all at once.”
Makeup artist Kara Yoshimoto Bua used Chanel’s Vitalumiere Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Sunscreen Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15 in the shades 10 Beige and 30 Beige.
“I wanted to give dimension to her skin by blending a light wash of the foundation as a contour under her cheekbones and jawline, to allow her natural pale luminosity to pop”, Bua explained.
“I lined her upper lid along the outer third of her lash line with dark brown liner, then softly defined the lash line and crease with a soft sand tone.”
The makeup artist finished the look with some shimmery gold on the center of each lid, using the Chanel’s Les 4 Ombres Multi-Effect Quadra Eyeshadow in Tissé Vendôme.
Talking about the real star of the look, her lipstick (the Chanel’s Rouge Coco Ultra Hydrating Lip Colour in Etienne, applied with a lip brush) Bua shared why she chose that bold color: “I was really inspired by the deep indigo of Bryce’s dress. I chose a complementary deep maroon lipstick color in the deepest tone to add a modern edge to the whole look, to contrast her beautiful pale skin.”
Her hairstylist Adir Abergel talked about the inspiration behind her ponytail: “I loved the sheen and architectural lines of Bryce’s dress. I mirrored that in the hair by creating a styling that had a high-gloss finish, accented with a strong deep side part.”
Here is Abergel‘s process:
– after towel-drying her hair, he created a deep side part starting at the highest arch of her brow;
– he then added Moroccanoil’s Treatment through her strands, then smoothed a bit of the brand’s Styling Gel and applied it to her bang area.
– He then blow-dried her hair using Denman’s Classic Brush to ensure her hair dried sleek and smooth;
– after the hair was completely dry, Abergel flat ironed her ends for a super-straight finish, then brushed her hair into a low pony, leaving her front bangs out;
– after securing the pony, he brushed her bangs back to meld with the ponytail, then finished with a spritz of Moroccanoil’s Luminous Hairspray.
Jurassic World is a 2015 American science fiction adventure film. It is the fourth installment of the Jurassic Park franchise and the first installment in the Jurassic World trilogy.
Set after Jurassic Park III and 22 years after the events of Jurassic Park, Jurassic World takes place on the same fictional Central American island of Isla Nublar, which is located off the Pacific coast of Costa Rica, where a theme park of cloned dinosaurs has operated for nearly a decade. The park plunges into chaos when a transgenic dinosaur escapes from its enclosure and goes on a rampage.
In the movie, Bryce plays the role of Claire Dearing, the Jurassic World operations manager.
