See the BEST hair and makeup from the London and Milan runways.
GIORGIO ARMANI Hairstylist Roberta Bellazzi used small irons to create a head of messy curls that she twisted and pinned forward for a look that was just the right mix of business and disheveled. IMAXTREE
VERSACE Guido’s pretty, center-parted waves capped down with a black elastic headband and Pat McGrath’s slick black cat-eyes made for a festival meets Sixties meets NYC vibe. IMAXTREE
EMPORIO ARMANI False lashes dyed neon green, purple and pink were placed at the outer corners to go with the “new pop” theme. IMAXTREE
MOSCHINO Tom Pecheux played up the collection’s leather, chains and charred dresses with slick, greasy black smoky eyes—the result of layering lipstick and eye gloss over M.A.C. gel liner, while Paul Hanlon styled “punky little knots” and big, beachy ’80s supermodel waves. IMAXTREE
“A POSH GIRL GOING TO BURNING MAN” IS HOW MAKEUP ARTIST PETER PHILIPS SET THE SCENE FOR THE FENDI WOMAN, AS HE PAINTED PSYCHEDELIC SWIRLS OF COLOR, THAT IS INSPIRED BY THIS MONTH’S DISCOVERY OF GRAVITATIONAL WAVES, ACROSS THE EYES AT FENDI USING DAMPENED Q-TIPS DIPPED IN KYROLAN AQUACOLOR PIGMENT.
ROBERTO CAVALLI Pat McGrath went for “rock ‘n’ roll decadence” backstage, where she traced the waterlines in black pencil, brushed black shadow across the lids and taupe-y gray under the brows and finished with a few coats of spidery mascara. IMAXTREE
ALBERTA FERRETTI This season, Guido Palau put a darker twist on the romantic hair he always creates for Alberta Ferretti, pinning the front pieces back and spraying the hair with Redken One United for a damp feel right before models hit the runway. “Was she maybe caught in the rain? You don’t know what it was really,” he said. IMAXTREE
NO. 21 Rocker waves and Ziggy Stardust eyes paid tribute to the late pop icon. IMAXTREE
BURBERRY Inspired by the electric colors and metallic embroidery of the Fall collection, makeup artist Wendy Rowe and her team applied 3,000 glitter flecks under the eyes backstage at Burberry for a post-festival vibe. IMAXTREE
ERDEM For a modern nod to the ’30s, Anthony Turner pulled the hair into a low ponytail, rolled it in toward the nape of the neck and held it in place with jeweled bobby pins, while Val Garland painted on Black Dahlia-inspired lips using NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Train Bleu and Mysterious Red. IMAXTREE
ALEXANDER MCQUEEN Guido described the hair at McQueen as having “a randomness and wrongness to it, which makes it punky. The clunkier it is, the better it is and the more you worry about it, the more wrong it looks.” He used Redken Guts 10 to give messy, disheveled, thrown-up texture, then reached into a jewelry tray of brooches and chains and randomly decorated the updo with them. IMAXTREE
TEMPERLEY LONDON The idea of pirates and mermaids floated around backstage, where Antonio Corral Calero worked the hair into “textured buns-slash-knots”, then topped the style off with dry shampoo for a matte, windblown finish. IMAXTREE
TOPSHOP UNIQUE Makeup artist Hannah Murray described the heavy winged liner and magenta lipstick on the models as what “a club kid who’s trying to recreate the 1960s” would wear. But combined with a deep side flip, they looked more like late ’80s teens who just walked off a John Hughes set—and we love everything about that. IMAXTREE
