Alexander McQueen at Paris Fashion Week
The Makeup, The Hair, The Shoes!
Last night in Paris, Alexander McQueen debuted his Spring/Summer 2010 collection. He showed a live broadcast of the show on his website and it was amazing! The models were made to look like reptiles, aquatic creatures and aliens as the show progressed in an almost evolutionary way. The clothes were incredible, the makeup was amazing, the hair was breath taking and the shoes were out of this world!!
The makeup started out very natural and moved into the extreme by the end of the show. Makeup artists even added prosthetic pieces on the models to give them that un-worldly, creature-like feel. The eyebrows were bleached (very popular this season) to make them look invisible, and the models faces were painted with a shimmery, almost metallic-like foundation.
The hair at this show was insane! It ranged from intricate woven braids to enormous wings at the back of the head.
Don’t even get me started on the shoes!!
I can’t believe not one model fell over in these 10 inch high platforms. They pretty much stole the show. I’ve never seen anything like it, and while I wouldn’t wear them out, I think that they are incredibly unique and kind of amazing.
The whole show was executed flawlessly and truly was a work of art.
