The textured embellishments and distinguished textures at the Lela Rose Fall/Winter 2016 show were not for the fashion faint of heart. The collection evoked effortless sophistication with a luxe approach.
With a rich palette of oxblood, indigo, dusted pink, pink, fawn, moss, and jewel tones, Lela Rose presented a sleek and feminine perspective. There was an emphasis on texture and dimension with a focus on layering, clean lines, and modern suiting. The geometric and graphic botanics created a mesmerizing effect. The oxidized metallic fabrics with elegant hand embroidered that added a luxurious touch to gowns and outerwear. The draping embellishments on the clothes and accessories captured our attention with every step. Needless to say, we were left in awe.
To complement the collection, Beauty.com created an effortlessly polished look with a slightly rebellious touch. We went behind the scenes and spoke to the beauty mavens themselves about how the looks were created. See below for what they said and how to re-create the look.
Hair: Esther Langham for Beauty.com using Alterna Haircare and The Beachwaver Co.
“The idea for the hair is effortless. The Lela Rose girl looks effortless and easy and not too heavy handed with the hair. We kept a little structure in the front by keep the side part and sweeping the hair across the forehead. For the texture in the back, it’s very easy. It still looks and feels like hair.”

Skincare and Make Up: Romy Soleimani for Beauty.com using Marula Pure Beauty Oil and Bliss Color
“We are pressing the oil into the skin for an added glow, which is especially helpful in this winter craziness. For make up, we using the Bliss color concealers where needed. It’s all about this khaki green smoke. It’s a gorgeous khaki with gold called “Olive Me”. We are rimming the whole lower lash line and then smudging it out with a brush, and then continuing on top.”

Nails: Geraldine Holford for Beauty.com using Londontown
“Usually the look for Lela Rose is very polished, and that shows in the make up and the hair, and obviously in the clothes. This season, she has lots of golds, beautiful olive greens, and jewel tones, so we decided to sort of put a little nod of rock and roll in the girl. We chose this dark gray, charcoal grey.”
