Absolutely EVERYTHING about the Dior Couture Autumn/Winter 12-13
show was a triumph.
There were thousands of fresh flowers
, including blue delphiniums, pink peonies and orchids that cascaded over the walls of a sumptuous private residence, paying tribute to Christian Dior and his love for “gardens in bloom
New Creative Director, Raf Simons
was inspired by Christian Dior’s original New Look
, referencing nipped-in waists and exaggerated hips with litres of fabric.
Makeup director Pat McGrath worked her magic backstage
with a strongly pigmented “technicolor look
”. I loved the drama of the silver lid
with a slash of fluoro pink
. Lashes were coated with black mascara and powdered with coloured pigments while brows
were brushed and lightly pencilled.
The base was pale, matte and cheekbones were highlighted with a pinky blush
Lips were powerful in an orangey red. They were lined with a nude lip-liner, while a touch of fluoro pink appeared at the centre.
Hair was crafted by Guido Palau, and was centre-parted, loose and natural so as not to overwhelm the makeup
. Love love love
. Beauty note
