Allure Backstage Marc Jacobs Spring 2013 Backstage Beauty Video. Go backstage at Marc Jacobs Spring 2013 with makeup artist Francois Nars and hairstylist Guido Palau at New York Fashion week. 60’s icon Edie Sedgwick was the inspiration of the Marc Jacobs show. THE LOOK: Mod liner, strong brows and teased hair.

As Francois Nars explained backstage “We came up with an updated version of the ’60s look that Edie Sedgwick, the Andy Warhol superstar, was doing for herself. To make it fresh, we took out the heaviness of her look, we took out the eyelashes, but we kept the essence of it: thick eyebrows and black-and-white, very monochromatic makeup.”

The hair look Guido Palau created was all about a voluminous, teased ponytail. Guido spritzed the hair with Redken Guts mousse, made a deep side part, and rough-dried it. For lift at the crown, he used Redken Quick Tease at the roots. After gathering the hair into a ponytail, Guido pulled out little pieces of hair right before the show started, “so it feels like she’s slept in it.”

Alexander McQueen was a creative genius and visionary and it’s impossible to imagine the world of fashion without him. The 40 year old award-winning British designer died on Thursday, February 11th at his London home.

McQueen liked to push people’s buttons. With the help of music-video producer Sam Gainsbury he transformed his catwalk shows into spectacular cinematic productions. The staging of his fashion shows were epic, intense productions that had something elemental – water, ice, fire, or live animals – taking you inside a world of his own creation, his shows transported you to another place. That was McQueen’s plan – he wanted you to feel breathless, shocked and full of emotion watching his show.

When you pulled back the curtain backstage at his show you never knew what was going to happen, but you always knew it was going to be something out of this world. Our crew was at his last show in Paris on October 6, 2009 and were one of the lucky few that were invited to shoot backstage.

The show called Plato’s Atlantis was perhaps one of his most extraordinary – an sensory explosion of fashion, beauty, technology and art. Alexander McQueen may be gone but he has left us with some of the most powerful visual experiences the world of fashion will ever know. We will all really miss him.
