“Fantastic, so modern, so fresh, so edgy and strong – I love his clothes“, supermodel Isabeli Fontana tells me backstage at Anthony Vaccarello’s Fall 2013 show in Paris. Isabeli is not alone in her adoration of the 31 year old Belgian born, Paris designer who is redefining what ‘sexy’ means in the 21st century. In the past year Anthony Vaccarello has dressed some of the world’s most beautiful women. Supermodel Gisele Bundchen wore his black chain-mail mini to the Met Gala and Jennifer Lopez made international headlines wearing one of his provocative gowns to the Golden Globe Awards.
Everything about Anthony Vaccarello’s sexy, rebellious Fall Winter 2013 Collection is perfection from the the metallic chain mail dresses, to the impossibly cool boots and shoe he designed in collaboration with Stella Luna.
Backstage after his show Anthony explains his Fall 2013 Collection is not punk inspired, but rather “a 60’s mood seen through a 90’s eye”. The beauty look Tom Pecheux Estee Lauder’s Creative Director of Makeup created perfectly captured that spirit. Tom used two new wine metallic lip colors – Estee Lauder Pure Color Vivid Shine in Hot Lava and Plum Couture on the lips giving the models a look of sensuality and toughness.
Hair stylist Anthony Turner, styling ambassador for L’Oreal Professionnel wanted to create a “punky version of elegance” and used L’Oreal Volume Architect throughout the hair to create effortless updo like the “girl just did it herself “.
