Fashion ad campaign don’t: ‘Dead’ models
Too-skinny models have come under fire in the past, but disturbing ‘deathvertisements’ take advertising to a whole new level of macabre.
New York Fashion Week kicked off yesterday, with its weeklong procession of couture and catwalks. All eyes are on the more than 300 designers who take their fall collections to the runway. From the front row to behind-the-scenes backstage, style-setters embrace the star-studded anything goes vibe.

Like at Fashion Week, some designers go to extreme lengths off the runway to sell their luxurious labels. Thumb though any fashion magazine and see for yourself. We get that competition in the fashion world is fierce. Designers need to be creative to stay relevant. But using ‘dead’ models to sell collections? This is a definite no.

To get the scoop on quick office party beauty tricks, we turned to Landy Dean, celebrity makeup artist at Marie Robinson salon. His simple tutorial requires only a handful of products, starting with the darkest, inkiest eyeliner you can find. Dean swears by the Nars Larger Than Life liners smudged over the waterline and lashline, topped off with a few coats of Maybelline The Falsies mascara. Before you dash off to apply product, there’s one small step that involves removing makeup. “If your foundation and concealer have caked or creased, I recommend a quick removal with a cleansing towelette and a redo to avoid heavy looking skin,” he cautions. For those who would prefer to go the easy route, apply a hydrating moisturizer using a stippling motion and a sponge. Finish the look with a dusting of BareMinerals Mineral Veil—“this will even out discolorations and give a reflective finish that still looks natural”—swap your work bag for a chic clutch, and get ready to ring in the season.
