The Jason Wu woman this fall is strong and fierce - there's bondage tape from a Parisian sex shop in the hair! The beauty look, like the collection, is inspired by the Chinese Ming Dynasty and its military mixed with the glam of classic Hollywood.

"She is a fighter," said lead stylist Odile Gilbert for Kerastase. "She has a ponytail like a horse." She created the bold pony using lots of hairspray blow dried into the hair as she pulled it back. The length was created with hair extensions, which were secured to the pony using pins and PVC bondage tape Odile found in Paris. The ponytail was flat ironed for a super straight look and then trimmed with a blunt cut.
Valerie Plotnikova, National Manager of Events and Education for Sunday Riley, prepped the skin before the makeup was applied. She cleansed the skin with a mixture of Ceramic Slip and Good Genes. Next, she moisturized the skin with a combo of Bionic and Juno to give them that glow.

"We've gone for a really dramatic eye," said makeup artist Diane Kendall for MAC. It's a blend of two green pencils, which was an homage to the military inspiration. She created an exaggerated winged look to bring in the Hollywood element.
