PARIS — “[Bill Gaytten] wanted a flash of gun metal and metallic,” makeup artist Pat McGrath explained backstage before the John Galliano show, referring to the label’s creative director. “It’s graphic and bold.”
She overlayed models’ eyebrows with thick, gray strokes and added silver-gray sparkles to their eyelids.
Hairstylist Orlando Pita said he was after “something that is really sculptural and very clean” and was using different textures in the ponytails conceived. Models’ hair was made shinier on the sides than in the middle, echoing the various consistencies of fabrics used in the John Galliano fall 2013 collection.
Pita spritzed tresses with hairspray and also utilized a shine grease, called Let’s Jam, from SoftSheen Carson.
