Top models Ginta Lapina and Jac take us backstage at Giambattista Valli Spring Summer 2012 fashion show in Paris. “I love the reality of women” Valli explained to me after the show – “it’s all about natural beauty”.
Giambattista Valli’s Spring Summer 2012 Collection was inspired by a mix of memories, cultures and an idea about a nomadic woman. “This woman is a traveller” explained Orlando Pita backstage, “there is a beach texture in the back, but we slicked it down on the front with gel, because the hair had to also look like she was coming out of the water”.
The makeup look Val Garland created was a healthy, athletic, androgynous girl. It’s all about a brushed up groomed eyebrow, a reflective color on the lid and lip balm on the lips”. As Giambattista explained, “if you feel beautiful, you don’t even need a hair do, that is the feeling”.
