Couture clients tend to know who they are, and Donatella Versace knows that her client lives in sync with her own taste for sleek, lustrous, perfect hair. Reflecting that spirit, hair guru Guido Palau brushed models' strands (plus a good deal of extensions) stick-straight. Using Redken Satinwear 02 Blow-Dry Lotion and the lock-taming Redken Iron Silk 07 Ultra-Straightening Spray, he swept models' hair cleanly back from a center part with a Mason Pearson brush—and for the handful of girls sporting hoods, Palau pulled everything back into a tight, silky bun at the nape of the neck. He knocked out any flyaways with Redken All Soft Argan-6 Oil as he went along. "This is super-simple, classic Versace hair," he noted.
"It's very Donatella with a little hint of Grace Jones," commented makeup artist Pat McGrath as she gave models a final look before the show. Accentuating the lush lashes and blend of bronze, gold, and brown shadows on the lids was a shot of electric blue on the inside corner of models' eyes. She said of the total package: "It's very rich, very beautiful, very Versace."
