Backstage Beauty Blog: MFW ss16 Day One

Where we met one of our heroes


Landed in Milan to glorious sunshine and huge long horrendous queues to get anywhere, including the backstage area of Prada and Moschino. But who cares - as I already mentioned, there was SUN!


The Shows

Max Mara was exceptionally exciting on the coloured brow front and I have been woring on getting the big boss to try it out with me ever since I saw it. Watch this space.



THE HIGHLIGHT: Watching Guido chop into the models sideburns and fringes and asking their reactions. The typically quirky Molly Bair (above right) told me, 'I'm pumped, bring it on. I was so bored of my hair anyway.'


HIGHLIGHT: Whitnessing the transformative power of a choppy bowl wig, made particularly apparent on Bella Haddid. So transformative that one poor french journalist called out 'Gigi, so lovely to see you!.' Needless to say Bella walked away stiffly. 

New Friends

Among the multi-coloured bowl wigs and 1990's supermodel references at Moschino I took great pleasure in meeting my plastic hero PascalPascale. He is a toy, owned by make up artist Tom Pecheux who takes the fashion and celebrity world - and Instagram - by storm. Of course we needed a few shots, forget studying the hair and makeup!

I Wore

Thank you once again for taking my fashion week dressing in hand. It is not easy to make all the choices all the time! Today it was & Other Stories cotton dress with New Look strappy flats. What will you make me wear tomorow? Check back to find out.
