Her inspiration? Film noir Fellini. Think sooty, smoky, smudgy, double-extended black eye liner; beautiful, reflective skin; and matt beige lips. Garland had been looking at old black and white pictures of Sophia Loren and Linda Evangelista and tried to update them for a more contemporary, less severe look which she coined the ‘fuzzy Fellini’. This complimented the collection which featured layering and suggestive reflective underlay. Garland predicts reflective skin and metallics as key trends for the upcoming season: ditch the powder and start glowing.
