Dominatrix Perfection at Marc Jacobs RTW

On the opposite end of the hair spectrum from yesterday’s post on purposefully fugging up your hair, are the sleek and smooth ponytails at Marc Jacobs Fall 2011 Ready To Wear.

The severe dominatrix inspired ponytails complimented the tough yet ladylike latex, lace, and polka dot fitted silhouettes. There were plenty of tight chin straps and Stephen Jones’ vinyl berets perched atop the models’ heads, so the hair needed to be simple, clean, and perfectly executed. Stylist Guido for Redken told Into The Gloss: “The hair has a kind of perverse, dominatrix perfection. It’s pulled up, very high, very strict, using two products: Blown Away, which is a blow-dry gel, and Shine Flash.”

The makeup was done by none other than François Nars of NARS. “I wanted to do something modern…but what does modern mean these days, anyway? So I just created something interesting and a bit decadent.

“We’re doing eyeliner but in a downward shape, rather than upwards. It’s an ‘upside down’ eye.

“A lot of blush, applied lower on the face, inspired by paintings in the 18th century. It’s a very simple look but a little ‘off’…I never like to do what you’d call ‘normal’; normal is for other people. I like to have fun,” Nars told Into The Gloss.

What do you think of the looks sent down Marc Jacobs’ Fall 2011 RTW runway? Will you be rocking high ponytails, downward eyeliner, polka dots or any other trends shown?
