Rad Or Bad: Are Fake Freckles Dotty Or Spot-On?
While the '90s saw an entire generation of women faking beauty spots courtesy of Cindy Crawford, now it’s all about grabbing your brown eyeliner pencil and drawing on a few, subtle fake freckles, thanks to Revlon’s Global Artistic Director, Gucci Westman. For Rag & Bone’s spring '12 show, Gucci said it was just another way to create the '70s surfer-girl look the designers were envisioning for their show. But this isn’t the first time we’ve seen freckles faked on the runway; Charlotte Tilbury snuck a few on faces at Chloé’s fall '11 show, too. Also enchanted by the free-spirited '70s, Charlotte looked to Anita Pallenberg (Italian-born actress, model, fashion designer, and Rolling Stones groupie) for a little inspiration. Clearly, the '70s and freckles seem to go hand-in-hand, but we’re still undecided about whether this trend is…erm, spot
-on, or just a little dotty in this day and age. You tell us—would you give it a go, or do you think it’s best left on the runway?
