Egypt was the main inspiration for Cushnie et Ochs garments, which in intense blues, blacks, yellows and pinks marveled at the fall of their fabrics. The openings and risky necklines, signature of the house, were added to tight waists and feminine dresses below the knee to present a strong and seductive woman.
The person in charge of the hairstyle was Antonio Corral Calero, creative director of Moroccanoil, who for the occasion created a ponytail inspired also in the Nile country. "Inspiration is the hairstyle of the Egyptians who wore the shaved sides and a ponytail", explains Corral Calero. “It is a simple ponytail in which the hydration of the hair is very important. It should look very smooth, silky and shiny, "he continues," to achieve the effect of the shaved sides, another transparent elastic is placed and attached to the nape with a hairpin ". To recreate this hairstyle at home the key is to apply products that give a damp and shiny appearance to our hair.
Maybelline's makeup artist Yadif also looked at Cleopatra to design the makeup for the show, starring a thick line outlining the eye in black with a leather texture. "The line is not curved but protruding, and has been adapted to the shape of each model's eye," says Yadif. “The eyebrows are structured and we have left the lips nude to give the limelight to the gaze. Before going out on the catwalk, we will give a touch of lip balm on the eyelids to give a sensation of humidity”.
