SHOW: Christian Siriano
MAKEUP: Polly Osmond for Victoria's Secret Beauty
HAIR: Jon Reyman, Artistic Director for Aveda
BEAUTY SNAPSHOT: Walk like an Egyptian in modern day Cleopatra-style.
THE SCOOP: If you're wondering what ever happened to the most flamboyant (and, in our opinion, most talented) winner of Project Runway, look no further. Christian Siriano's fierce Fall runway show was full of attitude and glamour - a hot mess, in a good way. Backstage, models were made to look like modern Cleopatra's to echo the chainmail fringe they'd be wearing on the runway. "We wanted an Egyptian feel without being too literal," said makeup artist Polly Osmond. "Christian was really into gold lips." Osmond used heavy black liner on the bottom lids to create a Cleopatra-esqe shape, with gold shadow on the upper lids. For hair, Jon Reyman created a modified ponytail chignon to round out the Pharaoh inspiration. "We wanted a hair style that's bold, geometric, sculpted and strong." The squared-off style he created could seduce any Caesar.
GET THE LOOK - MAKEUP: Victoria's Secret Very Sexy Silky Shadow in Champagne, Victoria's Secret Very Sexy Eyeliner in Black Velvet, Victoria's Secret Beauty Lipstick in Wet, (gold pigment on lips was created especially for the show).
GET THE LOOK - HAIR: Part hair in center and pull it back in a tight ponytail, applying Aveda Smooth Infusion Style-Prep Smoother for mold-ability and shine. Twist it down into a horizontal chignon for a strong rectangular shape, tuck the bottom under and pin it.
