If you think there’s anything more beautiful than Elīna Garanča serving silver filigree drag rococo femme dandy realness as Octavian in Der Rosenkavalier we have different priorities in life and should probably not be friends.
This is a great tutorial for achieving a more masculine look with makeup. I do this type of contouring for pants roles; you can even go a bit more extreme than Ascher does here if you’re going to be on stage.
(Stage makeup always looks kinda dumb off stage, because it’s exaggerated, but it needs to be that way to read from afar. Scale your makeup for your space; it makes a huge difference.)
@likeniobe ok like as soon as margaux responded i knew what she would be. this is valentino fw16 couture and this collection honestly gagged me like? this is early modern realness? and the intricate detailing and color palette are so margaux. these looks are begging to be costumes for shakespearean trouser roles. or to be in margaux’s closet.
Shown during Milan Fashion Week, Italian luxury brand Boglioli proves once again why its name should still be on everyone’s mind. Inspired by the 1960’s Milanese elegance, the collection features different silhouettes through plays on proportion, where shorter jackets and high-waisted trousers play a crucial role.
favorite noel poses: “the wingspan” (pt 2) - as previously discussed here and expanded by bythepowerof-topshophere, is a pose generally consisting of Noel spreading his arms out and raising them to shoulder height or slightly higher, with something in his left hand (usually a drink) while pointing with his right hand.
In these examples, “the wingspan” (or “the jesus” as it is known in some circles) has created the unintended effect of what we refer to as “noel belly.” This is due in large part to the arms raising slightly higher and nearly causing Noel to form a “vertical starfish” pose with his body as his legs also move to more than shoulder width apart (and a small t-shirt paired with low cut trousers plays a significant role here as well). The last photos in this set is a prime example of the aforementioned “vertical starfish” pose.
Additional note: “noel belly” is a glorious sight and, thankfully, not a rare one.
