♔ “Dancing was a popular pastime at court, if only because it afforded one of the few opportunities for men and women to enjoy physical contact in a social setting. Dancing was an essential accomplishment for both men and women of gentle birth, and the dances favoured at the court were many and varied; they included the basse, pavance, passamezzo, saltarello and galliard. Sixteenth-century dance had room for improvisation, though many were energetic, with much running and leaping, and in some, the dancers sang. All court dances began and ended formally with a reverence, with all the dancers bowing or curtseying to the King and Queen. Henry VIII was an expert and enthusiastic dancer, acquitting himself divinely on the dance floor, and his wives all enjoyed dancing with their ladies in the privacy of their chambers.“
Makeup by Peter Philips at Christian Dior Pre-fall 2015 in Tokyo
Raf Simons latest pre-fall collection for Dior was inspired by Christian Dior’s iconic Bar suit (the name derived from the idea that the looks were intended for late-afternoon cocktail hour in the bars of grand hotels), but with a futuristic twist. With this in mind, makeup artist Peter Philips went literal with his interpretation — drawing a bar shape on models’ eyelids.
“I created a look that is somewhat inspired by mangas,” Philips said. “It creates a wide eye, as if there were a vibration in their gaze.”
In a clever allusion to the collection, which heavily featured sequined turtlenecks, Philips used pieces of jumbo silver glitter on the upper lash line to create a “robotic” flash effect when models blinked. The rest of the face was left very natural (light foundation, soft blush and pale lipstick) to allow the graphic eye look to steal the spotlight.
