My last show of the day was actually the one I was most looking forward to because it was the Gottex show, and nothing says “warm weather ahead” like bathing suits. I was informed that supermodels from the September issue of Vanity Fair were walking in the show, including Fabiana, Cintia Decker, Yasmin Brunet, Emina, Guisela, Lisalla and Cisia.
Lots of Redken products were on hand to keep this look under control, but Hanan basically used Curl Force #17 Texturing Spray Gel on the ponytail, while Fabricate #03 heat-activated texturizer, and Headplay #12 Pliable Working Spray kept the look sleek and in shape.
I also watched Philippe (Chansel) work on his first model, Stacey. The look was to be a bit Brazillian “Carnevale” to reflect the bright colors and sexy styles of the swimsuits. As Philippe said, it’s a “classic, sexy, Latin look.” Lips were done in a corally pink, and of course, the emphasis was all on the eyes, with a slightly upturned line on top for sex appeal. Of course, there was a bit of bronzer which was also dusted on collarbones and anywhere else the sun might actually shine.
