Runway Beauty: Armani Prive Fall '06 Couture

Old Hollywood glamour at Armani Prive. The clothes in this collection were predominantly black and white, with the makeup complementing the look perfectly. There's shadow and definition in the on the eyes and lips, but a near absence of color, lending it the feeling of an old black and white movie. In fact, if not for the color in the models' skin, hair and eyes, you'd think you were looking at black and white images. I love the fact that we don't even need color photos to appreciate this collection.

Jessica Stam on the left looks particularly stunning, but it seems that Drielle Valeretta's (center) complexion doesn't particularly lend itself to this look. She looks a little ghostly (though very much Lily Cole, I think).

One interesting note: the mascara used here is most definitely copper/red with glitter. Click the photos for the full size versions - you'll be able to see it more clearly.
