PARIS — “It’s just very simple, very Donatella, very true to the house,” hairstylist Guido Palau said of the look at Atelier Versace show here Sunday night.
Some models had stick-straight hair, “which is a classic kind of Donatella Versace feeling,” he noted.
To get the coif, extensions were added and cut bluntly to achieve “a strong sort of silhouette,” said Palau.
Using Redken products, he blew-dry models’ hair with Satinwear 01 and a Mason Pearson brush, then ironed it with Iron Silk 07 Ultra Straightening Spray. Lastly, a little All Soft Argan-6 Oil was applied at the end, to help fight flyaways.
Makeup artist Pat McGrath described the beauty look as being slightly Grace Jones-like, “just very rich and beautiful.”
She put some bronze, gold and brown hues on models’ eyelids, and also a tinge of electric blue in their inner corners.
“There’s a lot of rich colors, as well, in the collection. So we did a little hint of rich color in the corner,” continued McGrath.
Lashes got a lashing of mascara, while lips were kept nude and glossed over.
