Blowouts and red lips were consigned to the past as the new Versace lady left her rock-chic persona behind to channel a more cutting-edge look.
“Donatella wanted a new direction and a new type of glamour,” explained hairstylist Guido Palau, working with Redken backstage. “It’s a tough glamour and a hard, sculptured style.”
Hair was slicked back using Redken’s 016 Hardwear Gel before being twisted into a low knot and covered in black PVC squares. Before the models hit the runway, hair was smeared in Redken’s Glass 01 Smoothing Serum for a glossy edge to the no-nonsense style.
A fresh, peaches and cream complexion contrasted with the model’s strong brows.
“Pump up the blush,” urged Pat McGrath backstage to her team as warm blush shades were applied to a polished base created using NatureLuxe silk foundation by CoverGirl. “It’s perfect skin and very groomed,” said McGrath.
CoverGirl’s LashBlast Length Mascara in Black was applied to upper lashes only to create a dark alluring eye. CoverGirl’s Professional Eye Enhancer eye shadow in Mink was applied to the eyelids whilst brows were defined and strengthened using Anastasia Perfect Brow Pencil in brown. Lips were left natural with a slick of lip balm.
Etro’s show, titled “The Tree of Life,” was a celebration of the house’s 50th anniversary. “My father founded the company in 1968, which was the year of counterculture and psychedelia. It’s really a show that celebrates that and the paisley design of India and its origin,” said Veronica Etro. #wwdfashion #mfw #ss18 (📷: @delphineachard)
