'Working with Paloma is not only professionally satisfying because she respects my work but it's a beautiful collaboration with a friend . I care how she looks beyond trying to stick a hairstyle on her , and therefore we always try to bring a look that has integrity to Paloma’s taste and aesthetic.
I always try to make her look fresh and timeless whether the look is classic, has a vintage flavour or is new and sleek. The team love working out the total look all together and for the Brits, my fourth one with Paloma, we prepared and brainstormed a lot before coming up with the final ideas for hair and makeup.
The main focus was on the performance piece and the fact that there was rain involved. It was going to be a special night.'More
The Red Carpet look by Armani Privé was so pretty I felt the hair needed to emulate that. I wanted it to have structure and a shape that was strong and somehow tough, but be something of a fantasy princess too. I went for a soft, cascading length to move as she walked, while everything else was drawn back from the face, allowing a few soft pieces at the front to fly away.
The Acceptance look by Dolce & Gabbana was a classic lace and flower combo and very much a theme Paloma loves. We drew on the total look of the runway show and decided to have her hair up in a loose, low wrapped bun with adornment of red carnations, but loose pieces that gave the look a relaxed, modern touch.
