The simplicity of the look for the Stella McCartney Spring 2014 show was ideal with down to earth, everyday glamour.

Want to know how to get the look like Cara Delevingne?? Read on…

Notice that perfect flick Miranda Kerr’s cat eye, and though it’s strong, there is softness at the same time.

Pat McGrath drew on inspiration from a photo Stella McCartney shared with her of a bold cat eye McGrath had crafted in seasons past. They wanted to toughen up the look of the delicate lace dresses like this, but yet an intense, black cat eye didn’t feel right.

McGrath softened the cat eye using a taupey-brown color tracing the upper eyelid and flicking it out. She added an outline of the lower lid and flicked it to join the upper followed by light smudging to make it feel more lived in.

The artist restrained the look by eliminating blush, and simply using a light lip balm on the lip. The story was all about the eyes.

Hair artist Eugene Souleiman of Wella Professionals wanted the ponytail to be cool and easy. He wanted to see “those light bits that move on the runway”. The way the fine little strands catch the light.

Good news girls, we don’t have to be super models to achieve this super chic pony. Just side part, and pull into a low pony tail. Let the side part swoop down over your forehead. There were no styling products used to achieve this look. Souleiman wanted the ponytail to be cool and easy. Oh, and don’t worry about the whisps, it’s all about “those light bits(whisps) that move on the runway” said Souleiman.

I can’t even began to describe the mayhem that ensues when Cara Delevingne is around. It was really nice to be able to take a portrait of her backstage at Stella McCartney  during a quiet moment.

    Thanks Jezz! I did feel lucky, it was pretty calm backstage even if there were a lot of media. The next day when she walked in Valentino, after the show was a mob scene. I couldn’t believe all the packs of paparazzi chasing her from the venue to her car. I almost got stampeded just trying to get out of the show! She’s super nice and always has the perfect cat eye~~
