The Gucci girl slicked back her mane this season into a glossy braided chignon.

 

“It’s almost like Studio 54 hair,” said hairstylist Luigi Mureno, who attached thin bronze leather hair bands — created for the show and which matched the collection’s handbags and shoes — to hold together even the shortest locks with a sculptural flourish.

 

John Frieda’s Frizz Ease serum was used to mold the style’s sleek side part Mureno described as military.

 

A modern seductress was makeup artist Pat McGrath’s take on the look’s dewy skin and glossy red orange-y lips.

 

“It’s something different from the retro and vintage looks out there,” said McGrath, who credited the look’s contemporary feel to well-prepped light, luminous skin created using NatureLuxe silk foundation by Cover Girl.

 

Taupe and bronze eye shadow offered a hint of the traditional vamp updated by a sweep of gloss to the eyelids.
