British Vogue recently brought together a group of fashion superstars—think Christian Louboutin, John Galliano, Stella Tennant, Jean Paul Gaultier, Charlotte Olympia—for the annual Vogue UK Festival, to talk all things fashion and beauty to a sold-out crowd of more than 650 people.
Kate Upton and I joined editor-in-chief, Alexandra Shulman, to discuss what it means to “be who you are” and how we both got our start in the industry. The conversation ranged from memories of our mothers doing their makeup to how we use our favorite products. Kate and I made a great team because we both have the same philosophy when it comes to following rules – we don’t, we make our own.
After the talk, Kate and I were greeted by hundreds of fans—what a surreal moment. I’ve done makeup for rockstars, I don’t usually get to feel like one.
