I was feeling kinda nostalgic and since this year’s MET Gala is postponed, I wanted to share with you some precious gems from last year, starting with Johnny Depp‘s daughter.
Lily-Rose donned a black vintage Chanel 1992 (from the Spring/Summer 1992 collection) dress embellished with flower-shaped gold brooches, previously worn by model Christy Turlington on the catwalk and by Penélope Cruz in Broken Embraces.
The look was paired with simple Jimmy Choo gold sandals.
When it came to combining the makeup and the dress together, her makeup artist Nina Park revealed to the publication Bustle.com: “Lily-Rose and I love the ’90s era makeup. When we found out she was wearing an archival early ’90s Chanel dress, we knew it would be the perfect time to amp this up. We wanted to go glam supermodel ’90s, but keep it modern by keeping skin fresh and glowy.”
“We wanted to tribute the over-the-top, more is more beauty ideals of the early ’90s supermodels, but still keeping it beautiful and fresh.”
As with every great makeup, people want to know how to achieve the look, which was very wearable even for us common humans, so here is the breakdown for you:
“To prep Depp‘s skin, Park applied the Chanel Hydra Beauty Camellia Water Cream. […] ‘I prepped by using a generous amount of [this product] as a mask and let it sit on her face for a few minutes. I then massaged all over and blotted off the excess with a tissue.’ She really wanted to give Depp a youthful, dewy complexion so she only applied a small amount of Chanel Les Beiges Fresh Water Tint in Light Medium to Depp‘s face. To contour, Park used the flesh tone from Chanel Les 4 Ombres in Clair-Obscur and then Chanel Joues Contraste in Rose Pétale to her cheeks and the nose. For highlight, she applied Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Luminous Colour in Medium.”
“Park applied Chanel Stylo Yeux Waterproof in Mat Taupe to create an elongated shape that was thinner at the lash line and then thicker beyond the lids. Using the darkest color from Chanel Les 4 Ombres in Clair-Obscur (see picture above), she blurred the edges of the eyeliner. Next, she applied the main shade from the same quad eyeshadow palette to the crease of the lids and then at the center, used the lighter shade, followed by the third shade, a soft brown, to deepen the crease line. To recreate this look at home, Park suggests using a synthetic lip brush and ‘stamp in the darker color just above the crease to give the impression of a larger, pronounced lid.'”
“To define Depp‘s statement brows, Park used Chanel Stylo Sourcils Waterproof in Blond Doré followed by the taupe shade from the Chanel Les 4 Ombres in Clair-Obscur she used to contour Depp‘s face earlier. Then, she applied several coats of Chanel Inimitable Mascara in Noir to Depp‘s top and bottom lashes.”
For her ’90s lip, “Park used Chanel Le Crayon Lèvres in Mordoré to define Depp‘s lip shape and then applied Chanel Le Crayon de Couleur Mat in Rosy Wood.”
Nail artist Mei Kawajiri opted for a sheer pink Chanel natural nail polish. It gave the whole opulence of the outfit time to shine.
