Alien baby Hunter Schafer brings real fashion to every red carpet event she attends. Her unconventional ensemble for this year’s Vanity Fair Oscar After Party won my heart in a matter of seconds.
For the night, Hunter wore a denim Rick Owens long dress, slightly altered from the model presented during the Fall 2022 Ready-to-Wear collection.
She couldn’t also miss the opportunity to pair her gorgeous ensemble with light grey Rick Owens Grill Kiss Chelsea Boots (same model as pictured below, not the same color) and a Cornflower Blue Prada Cleo leather shoulder bag.
When it came to jewelry, she opted for a De Beers feast: The Alchemist of Light, Light Rays diamond ear cuff and stud set in 18k black rhodium plated white gold featuring a fancy deep brownish yellow radiant-cut diamond and yellow rough macle stud, The Alchemist of Light, Light Rays Collar necklace set in 18k black rhodium, a Reflections of Nature Okawango Grace medallion ring set in 18k white gold and black rhodium and to finish it off, two Round Brilliant diamond Eternity Bands set in platinum.
The model’s makeup was so beautiful that I will definitely replicate it in real life (striking looks are my thing).
Her makeup artist Sandy Ganzer revealed to Vogue that it was inspired by the weather there was in LA the day before: “Moody overcast misty morning. We had the most perfect misty gray morning in L.A. the day before and I kept remarking to myself how it looked like the exact color of her dress. I love the way the icy blues and dusty charcoals pair with the denim Rick Owens gown.”
Another important reference was Britney Spears‘ denim look and makeup for the 2001 American Music Awards.
Here is how to achieve it, with Shiseido products:
– Use the grayish pigment from the Shiseido Essentialist Eye Palette in Kaigan Street Waters as a base;
– draw a sharp wing, extending the color on the bottom lash as well, deepening it with the POP PowderGel Eye Shadow in the shade ‘Zaa Zaa Navy‘;
– apply POP PowderGel Eye Shadow in ‘Shari-Shari Silver‘ to the inner corner and over the Navy shade to create a shimmering baby blue;
– intensify the lash line with ArchLiner Ink and one coat of Imperial Lash Waterproof Mascara Ink.
– Add a natural glow to the cheeks with InnerGlow CheekPowder in ‘Medusa Pink‘ and ‘Aura Pink‘;
– apply a sheer wash of Lacquer Ink Lipshine in ‘Mirror Mauve‘ on the lips.
Hunter‘s hair was a whole other deal, inspired by the actress’ love of Japanese manga and anime. The result was–as said by Vogue–glossy, just-emerged-from-the-water hair.
Hairstylist Rena Calhoun further explained to the publication: “This look was inspired by Hunter‘s love of anime, where you often see interesting haircuts that have multiple lengths, such as long tendrils that cascade to add a dramatic effect. We wanted to give drama for this look, and her dress gave us room to explore.”
Would you like a full breakdown of the products used for the hairstyling? Say no more.
“After giving Schafer‘s wet hair a clean center part, the pro worked Virtue 6-in-1 Styling Paste through her lengths and used a dense boar bristle brush to brush the hair down to ultra-sleek effect. Then for a dose of high-gloss shine, Calhoun added a veil of Virtue Healing Oil all over the top before passing over the hair with a flat iron to achieve a “barely there” texture, one that was a bit softer as compared to the sleekness through the top, finished with a cocktail of Virtue Split End Serum and Healing Oil to get separation and definition.”
To complete the look, manicurist Stephanie Stone painted Hunter‘s nails with a Chanel nail polish in the shade ‘Washed Denim‘.
