One Dress, Four Ways
A quartet of stylists gussy up a budget gown, with a little help from two hair and makeup pros.
LOOK #1: Retro Vamp
“Classic New York Glamour” was the M.O. for Gabriella Risatti, owner of Gabriella New York Bridal Salon. She envisions her bride tying the knot at a swanky locale like Gramercy Terrace and wanted to capture that vibe with sleek black accessories. Rodrigo Padilla, hairstylist for Sally Hershberger Downtown (212-206-8700; sallyhershberger.com), pulled the model’s S-shaped waves into a side ponytail and fastened it with a feathered headpiece—a style he says was popular among Parisian operagoers in the thirties. Makeup artist Landy Dean (212-358-7780; landydean.com) then used Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner in Black Ink to fashion Hepburn-esque wings, explaining, “The noir eyeliner is like an additional black accessory.”
