Every season there is that one collection that makes me gasp. And it was no surprise to me that this time it was Givenchy, again. The masks and makeup were designed and executed by makeup guru Path McGrath. “Riccardo wanted the masks to look soft, to be more romantic and organic, but still strong and a bit strange.”” she said. Five of the models wore elaborate face jewelry crafted from different materials. One made from layers of tulle and pearls, one from layers of lace and pearls, and one formed entirely of lace. There was an ornate mask of gold and colorful crystals and one composed entirely of sequins and beading. And then there was one that was more headband than mask, with gold studs and Swarovski crystals glued all along the model’s forehead. After seeing all of it, I only wondered how long it took to make one, and what glue did they use.

The collection had all the references that we are used to seeing from Riccardo Tisci. Last season’s darkly romantic Victorian collection, where models’ elaborate facial jewelry culminated in a heart-stoppingly provocative expression of beauty that nearly stole the show. The hair and jewelry also caused quite a stir because some thought it was too much for a runway show as it had many references to the chola girls.
