Karlie Kloss is known in the modeling industry for many things: her career-making Calvin Klein exclusive circa Spring 2008, that Juergen Teller-lensed Marc Jacobs Lola fragrance campaign, and an incomparable walk that makes all six feet of her insanely long frame a dominating runway presence. But this morning, the St. Louis native added a new signature to her stellar profile: a bob—with bangs! Our photographers have been snapping pics all morning backstage at the Victoria’s Secret fashion show, where models—Angels and otherwise—have been primping for this evening’s extravaganza, which is where we got a first look at Kloss’ chin-grazing crop equipped with an equally short fringe. The mane event reportedly happened on Monday, courtesy of Garren, on the set of a new shoot—and will likely be concealed by extensions come showtime, as these things often go (the word bob does not usually precede bombshell)—but we’re headed over to the venue now to get the full scoop, as well as the word on Tom Pecheux and Orlando Pita’s makeup and hair magic. For now, enjoy these early images and get used to the supe-in-the-making’s latest style coup. Thoughts on Karlie’s cut?
The “biggest show on earth” took place yesterday, with a live performance from Fergie to boot. But before all of the winged action on the Victoria’s Secret runway began, we made our way past the weapon-sniffing dogs and waded through piles of rogue hair extensions backstage to chat up makeup artist Tom Pecheux, who was turning a bevy of supermodels into Angels. Heidi Klum, Doutzen Kroes, Sessilee Lopez, Caroline Winberg, and Chanel Iman pranced around in short pink and white satin robes waiting for their turn in the makeup artist’s chair, where he was applying what he described as a “sophisticated fresh look” on Miranda Kerr. “I’m using gentle shades,” Pecheux said, adding that there would be “no aggressive colors” on his divine creatures. A tan, rosy cheeks and contouring, and pink lipstick topped off with peach gloss are practically pre-requisites at the VS spectaculars. But Pecheux did add his own flair to the signature look, replacing harsh black liner with a gray version that he dragged beyond the outer corner of the eye to dress up taupe and pink shadows, which were pressed into the crease for a “banana” effect. And since he’s of the mind that “a full fringe drags down the face,” he applied single lashes for added glamour. The finishing touch? A lot of glow. Shimmer was generously applied to Kerr’s cheek and brow bones with a little smidgen added to the inner corner of the eye as well. “That’s the bling-bling,” Pecheux said.
