PARIS “Dries [Van Noten] wanted to do something slightly conceptual, but colorful at the same time,” said makeup artist Peter Philips backstage at Dries Van Noten.

To get the look, Philips applied watered-down lime green eye shadow by Make Up For Ever under model’s eyebrows “just to add a little fantasy” to the otherwise immaculate look created with Chanel’s Pro Lumière foundation.

Toenails were painted with Chanel Holographic polish, whose effect was meant to echo that of bags and belts on Van Noten’s runway.

Hairstylist Paul Hanlon pulled hair back to let it undulated loosely in the back and create movement that is “neither straight nor curvy. There’s a slight nod to the Forties without being too retro,” he said.

Hanlon used L’Oréal’s Elnett hairspray and Toni & Guy’s Label.M Extra Strong Mousse.
