As you know, I recently attended the Myer Autumn/Winter edit featuring a bevy of powerhouse Australian labels showcasing their latest collections at their Bourke Street emporium. Something you may not know is that behind the scenes the talented Kevin Murphy and Yves Saint Laurent teams were working together to create the gorgeous hair and make up looks which we saw shimmy down the cat walk.
I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to head backstage and meet the team behind the models’ sleek, sophisticated look. The suspects? Natasha Severino for YSL and the killer combination of Nathan Gorman and James Nicholson for Kevin Murphy. The inspiration of the night?The swinging sixties. Natasha created a sharp precision matte winged eye which she then juxtaposed against a luminous, radiating skin base. Similarly the hair look was inspired by the sixties era but instead of creating a nostalgic look, Murphy used select style aesthetics from that period. He has broken them down and modernised the ideals to appeal to the polished contemporary woman. All in all a gorgeous look was created and the models looked incredible on the night…xx
