Alexander McQueen Fall 2012

Guido (Redken): I wanted to depersonalize the girls, completely. We designed some visors so the look is very futuristic. When I work with Sarah [Burton], I get involved really early on—she shows me the clothes, and we talk about it.  VIEW MORE >

Viktor & Rolf Fall 2012

Luigi Murenu: The girls are dark creatures of the night, but they still have that ‘glam’ appearance. So we have finger waves in the front, with a very severe middle part and the hair smoothed down like polished wood—we are using John Frieda Frizz Ease for that.  VIEW MORE >

Lucia Pieroni (Clé de Peau): The makeup inspiration is nature—Marco (Zanini) was inspired by Scandinavian pottery, so all the prints that you see are from this incredible pottery.  VIEW MORE >

Alexander Wang Fall 2012

Diane Kendal (MAC): This season he [Alexander] took a quite serious approach, there are tweeds, a lot of lamination, shrink-wrapping—so he wanted the girls to look quite strong and bit warrior-like.  VIEW MORE >

Versace for H&M

Tom Pecheux: We’re doing very strong eyes—very kind of square. I’m using a basic black eye shadow from MAC, with very metallic silver on the eyelid, and on top of the metallic we will add lip gloss for shine.  VIEW MORE >
