Backstage Coverage Goes Global-------
The fashion industry is on the move. This week, as the menswear collections continue in Paris, womenswear shows have started up in Berlin and Hong Kong and moved from Rio to São Paulo, with a runway appearance by Jesus Luz to boot! (Madonna’s arm candy walked at the Ellus show yesterday with red-haired glamazon Cintia Dicker.) As per usual, though, we’re less interested in star-stalking than we are in hunting down blog-worthy backstage beauty looks for at-home trial and error and general amusement. We got both when perusing images from the latest Brazilian shows. Proenza’s Spring 2010 colored hair streaks turned up yet again, this time at Triton, where the dip-dyed mid-lengths twisted into contrasting chignons looked like a fun way to wear the increasingly popular style, if and when you decide to jump on the rainbow-colored bandwagon. Ronaldo Fraga, meanwhile, channeled Martin Margiela’s 20th anniversary Spring 2009 presentation and had his hair team put thick braids in front of models’ faces and masks above their necks. Do not try this at home.
