PARIS The beauty look at Giambattista Valli’s couture show came from some of the designers’ best girlfriends and clients, explained hairstylist Orlando Pita.

“They just wash their hair and let it dry on its own and brush it,” he said. “[Valli] was seeing a few of them at the Basel art fair.”

“Think Bianca Balti,” chimed in makeup artist Val Garland, who was working with MAC Cosmetics and added of the style: “It’s very much effortlessly chic and very real.”

Most of the models’ hair was left hanging loose, while others’ was swept back into ponytails. “There’s a little static electricity and flyaways,” added Pita.

Garland continued: “It’s all about beautiful skin, lots of highlighter… and then it’s just about a little bit of a sensuality at the center of the lip, where we put a little bit of glitter.”
