Backstage Beauty: Miss Sixty


Oh, the stories I have to tell you about the Miss Sixty show. But before going any further, would you look at this gorgeous red hair? In a sea of blonde, black, and brown, this model's mane grabbed my attention. I loved it, but then again, the hair in general was so pretty. Neil Moodie of Bumble & bumble created the '70s-influenced look, and I snagged a minute with him before the show. "We wanted to keep the hair a little more simple because in the collection, there's a lot going on," he explained. "It's '70s, but not literal. It needs to be a little more subtle."

I also talked with Gucci Westman, the lead makeup artist who was working with MAC for the show. While she applied deep blue eye shadow to Jessica Stam, she explained the inspiration for the look. "It's a sort of a cross between Joan Jett and bohemian, with a little bit of Endora," she said. As she did with her work for Rag & Bone a few days prior, she used a rich blue as the base for eyes. "I'm feeling the blue," she said.

In the tent itself, I had a great view of noted fashion photographer Nigel Barker and runway coach J. Alexander. Even better is that when the remixed medley of '70s songs switched to "Immigrant Song," Nigel started tapping his fingers to the beat. And before you knew it, he was tapping his toes. And then Miss J got into it, too. What can you say? A little Led Zep never hurt anybody. Bianca from last cycle was also at the show—her head's still shaved, and it looks great—and her behavior was, dare I say it, ladylike. Go figure.
