Watch our exclusive Alexander McQueen Fall 2012 backstage beauty video with makeup artist Peter Philips, hair stylist Guido Palau. This Alexander McQueen Fall 2012 collection designed by Sarah Burton was breath taking and magical and it looked like a haute couture collection. The Alexander McQueen Fall 2012 show was bold, futuristic and outer-worldly beautiful.
Hair stylist Guido Palau explained the look was manga inspired, “the feeling of the show is that beautiful, powerful McQueen woman but this time she is more futuristic”. All the models looked alike – each had a platinum blonde wig and each girl wore a mirrored silver visor that covered up almost the whole face.
Makeup artist Peter Philips gave the models beautiful, pure, alabaster ivory skin using Chanel Mat Lumiere foundation. As Peter explained “you can feel the face through the visor, but you don’t really see one”.
“It’s definitely art” actress Salma Hayek told me after the show. “It takes you somewhere special, you never know where she (Sarah) is going to take you, it’s ethereal, it really transports you somewhere”.
Featuring interviews with actress Salma Hayek, Vogue Japan Editor-at-Large Anna Dello Russo and top models Nimue Smith and Jac Jagaciak. Watch our exclusive Alexander McQueen Fall 2012 fashion video here now. Shop the collection at AlexanderMcQueen.Com
