Odile Gilbert for Rodarte
Odile Gilbert kept things very sophisticated for the Rodarte SS 2016 show at New York Fashion Week. Compared to seasons past, the styling for Rodarte was both pretty and subtle. Lead makeup artist for the show, James Kaliardos told the New York Times, “It’s not tricky.” Hair, make-up and nails were kept fairly neutral. “There’s a lot going on with the clothes,” he explained.
Kaliardos said poetry was a major inspiration this season, as were the sunrise and the horizon. Odile Gilbert added to the cohesiveness of the look with softly waved locks, enhanced with a touch of individualism: Hair was parted on whatever side each model tends to wear hers as [with] the unique placement of large gold and silver barrettes.

“I like that they look like they’re part of a crown, without being a full crown,” hairstylist Odile Gilbert told Vogue as she secured two metallic floral clips into models’ texturized strands, using deliberately “weird and unexpected” placements. The gold or silver demi-coronets adorned fringes or were stacked linearly just above the ear, offering a point of peculiar polish that contrasted with the mattified effect of hair that had been rough-dried with show sponsor Kerastase's Powder Bluff.
