That Seventies Show Gets Syndicated Backstage at Topshop Unique


Saturday Night Fever hit New York last week with Marc Jacobs’ Studio 54 divas, Badgley Mischka’s angelic disco dolls, and Halston’s, well, Halstonettes. Now the designers at London’s Topshop Unique have caught the seventies vibe. Backstage, where makeup artist Hannah Murray was hard at work, it was all about groomed power arches, made to look brushed up à la Brooke Shields with individual pencil strokes, and a patent leather-finish red lip created using Topshop’s Lipstick Pencil in Flame topped off with its Gloss in Cardinal Sin. Employing the rickracking technique Guido Palau used at big and little Marc, coif master Paul Hanlon brushed out texture into what he described as triangle-shaped, voluminous “Saturday night” hair. The twist came in the form of extensions in an “antique pastel shade” used to bulk out tresses. As for that quintessential seventies glow, Lady Gaga’s go-to tanner, James Read, was charged with giving models a dark high-maintenance bronze with Saint Tropez’ wash-off mousse, which he layered three times for a “real retro impact.” (Anyone who noticed Gaga’s next-level fake-baked complexion at the VMAs two weekends ago knows that Read does not mess around.)
