Fashion Week New York Spring Summer 2014: Costello Tagliapietra


Costello Tagliapietra’s Spring Summer 2014 show was for the women who feel as if they can’t express their personal style in a corporate office setting and Costello Tagliapietra has just set them free.



The clothing all very structured and classic, yet in colors of turquoise, navy blue, green, orange, and even color blocking. The hairstyle on all models was a loose braid with a few flyaways flowing in the front. The makeup kept simple but stunning with mint green and lavender eye shadow colors pressed onto the models lids. Fresh faced and nothing else but some lip gloss- these models looked ready to rock the traditional take on business casual.

Lead manicurist for Essie, Michelle Saunders, filled us in on the look of the nails:
“The manicure for this show is a true navy look. We were inspired by the sandals the models are wearing in the show and wanted to tame down the color blocking with a neutral. Even navy is now considered a neutral. Using Essie’s color Midnight Cami, a rich navy blue, and then Essie’s Mademoiselle on top, this brings out the hues of the navy. Add a matte top coat and now the nail effect is leather.”

Nelson Vercher for Rita Hazan explained his hairstyle selection:
“The inspiration of the hair was for the girl who always goes away and loves to go away. This hairstyle is elegant, modern, and has a sexy ease. Use first dry shampoo, then a thermal water mist, and finish with a spray volumizer.”
