For the very first time, Estée Lauder embarked upon Paris Fashion Week – sponsoring the beauty look (makeup & nails) at the Anthony Vaccarello Fall 2012 show!  Vogue+ Correspondents Himanshu Pandey & Veronique Poles divulges how Estée Lauder Global Spokes model Joan Smalls walked the a-la-mode runway…

Glossy, burgundy-black eyes, nude lips, contoured cheeks and green-black nails rocked the runway at Docks En Seine.

Estée Lauder Creative Makeup Director Tom Pecheux led a team of 15 artists to create the stunning look on 30 models – while manicurist Christina Conrad and her team polished their nails with a new Pure Color Nail Lacquer that was tested backstage.

Tom Pecheux, Estée Lauder Creative Makeup Director: “Anthony’s collection is magical – very sexy, very luxurious, very fresh, very young.  All of those elements combined inspired me to create a ‘Paris by night’ look, with the focus on the eyes.  For me, the eyes represent the Parisian woman, it’s her signature.  Anthony is a young designer, and it is important to keep the makeup young and fresh.”
