Balmain Spring 2014 backstage with top models Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Georgia May Jagger, Karlie Kloss and Balmain Creative Director Olivier Rousteing at Paris Fashion Week. The Balmain girl for Spring 2014 is sporty and relaxed, and the look is all about reality which explains why the hair look by Sam McKnight and makeup look by Tom Pecheux was so minimal.  As designer Olivier Rousteing explained after the show “my goal was showing the reality of this girl at 9am – the girl has to feel good, hot and cool and relaxed in every piece that they wear”.

In Paris we go backstage at Balmain Fall 2013 and get a first look at the makeup by Tom Pecheux and hair by Sam McKnight.  Some of the world’s most beautiful top models walked in the show including Karlie Kloss, Joan Smalls, Arizona Muse, Anna S and Bette Franke.

Backstage: Balmain Fall 2013

Go backstage at Paris fashion week and get the Look of Balmain by makeup artist Tom Pecheux and hair stylist Sam McKnight.  Olivier Rousteing’s fall 2013 collection for Balmain was electrifying – the broad shouldered jackets and dresses were full of embellishments and bold color so the beauty look was natural.

As Sam McKnight admitted backstage “the look of Balmain is a lot tougher this season”.  Slicked back, masculine hair gave the models a powerful rock and roll edge.  Makeup artist Tom Pecheux gave the models matte skin and well groomed stronger eyebrows – a look that has become a real trend for fall 2013.  Check out our Balmain Fall 2013 Backstage photo gallery here now.

Balmain has issued a statement confirming that it has parted ways with creative director Christophe Decarnin. “Since 1945, the house of Pierre Balmain has been one of the leading French and international luxury brands,” says CEO Alain Hivelin in the brief statement. “Christophe Decarnin’s work with the house’s design team contributed to the success that the brand has enjoyed in recent years.

Christophe Decarnin Leaves Balmain   Style News

Decarnin joined Balmain in 2005. His sexy rocker jackets, ripped t-shirts, jeans and thigh high mini dresses turned Balmain into one of the world’s hottest labels. But speculation about Decarnin has swirled since the notoriously shy designer failed to appear for a bow after his fall-winter 2011-12 ready-to-wear show last month. It was rumored he’d had a nervous breakdown and was in a mental hospital, but a spokesman for the house dismissed the speculation, saying Decarnin missed the show because he was resting on doctor’s orders.

As Cathy Horyn of the New York Times wrote this morning on her blog, attention now turns to who will replace Decarnin.  Stylist and designer Melanie Ward, who is said to have done much of the work for the Fall 2011 collection, appears to be the front-runner, but some fashion insiders aren’t ruling out a career change for former Paris Vogue Editor Carine Roitfeld.
