MILAN — For the Gucci show, hairstylist Luigi Murenu and makeup artist Pat McGrath took inspiration from Marisa Berenson as shot for Vogue covers in the Seventies.
To create a chignon with a graphic twist, Murenu glossed the models' hair with Kérastase mousse mixed with products from the John Frieda Frizz-Ease line. After creating a central part, hair was combed back into a low ponytail, tucked into a sleek chignon and pinned to the base of the neck.
Stiff, severely-razored hair strands were segregated from the ponytail (or created by extensions) and lashed around the chignon. Models were given either two down-turned points or one facing upwards. The angular cuts were achieved by flat-ironing the product mix into the hair and incising it with a slash of scissors.
To evoke Berenson's bold gaze, makeup artist McGrath began with luminous skin and contoured cheeks. To make eyes pop, they were dusted in pearlescent, peach shimmer and overlaid in a bronze smoke-out for depth.
Brown pencil warmed beneath the waterline and naturally filled-in brows were “groomed to perfection,” said McGrath as she swathed models' eyes in two rows of lush, fake lashes and coated bottom lashes in mascara.An understated lip in peach and beige sheer finished off the look.

@pantone announced their Color of the Year 2018: Ultra Violet. Nearly 20 months after the musician Prince’s death, fashion is having a purple moment. Varying shades of purple appeared on spring or fall runways, from @christopherkane to @calvinklein. @gucci’s Alessandro Michele bathed his fall runway in ultra violet-colored light at one point. Pantone 18-3838 is meant to “push the boundaries of what inspires us to look upward and outward to the future.” #wwdnews #wwdfashion (📷: @kukukuba)
