At Christian Lacroix, hairstylist Odile Gilbert rolled models’ hair in numerous places then inserted gold-colored combs. “It’s like a mix, of Forties, Fifties,” she said, explaining that in some ways, the coifs are reminiscent of when women used rollers, but with a modern take.
Stéphane Marais also drew inspiration from yesteryear for the makeup at Lacroix. He said the designer had been looking at black-and-white photographs taken decades ago by Peter Lindbergh showing women made up at the time by Marais with a “very strong look.”
Drawing on such images, Marais gave models “quite strong,” “feminine” eyes. Dark lines, for instance, emphasized their brows.
