Please tell us about Kathryn's look last night.

"Last night was Kath's launch as the newest face of Pond's. We wanted a simple, minimalist, and youthful look that also had a flowy feminine feel."

Did you have a specific peg? What was the style direction you were going for?

"Yes, we did have a specific peg. We wanted it to be elegant, simple, and age-approriate for the event. Kath wore a white silk long dress by Martin Bautista that just effortlessly moves along with her body. Since [Pond's] is all about the skin, we opted for a low back detail. When styling Kath, we always want [to highlight] more of her than the dress."

Why Martin Bautista? 

"Martin has always been our go-to designer for Kath. He can make anything for her within less than a day, but still, the fit and the look are always perfect. He's also the best when it comes to flowy, silk dresses."

"Trust is very important when it comes to celebrity clients. What we love about our relationship with Kath is that she allows us to take full control of her look for all of her appearances. Fortunately, we know her well enough to know what she likes, how a particular type of dress would fit her, and what would complement her body type and highlight her best features."

How did you plan for her hair and makeup to complement the overall look?

"Since this was a Pond's event, we wanted her makeup to look youthful, glowing, and fresh. For her hair, it was a break from her usual messy updo. Instead, we opted for a low ponytail that was parted in the middle."

Last night's event was all about how #ChangeIsBeautiful. How did you incorporate this to her look?

"In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different. Kathryn will forever be the Teen Queen in our hearts, but she's also maturing into a fine young lady and we wanted a classic, elegant look that will resonate with that."
