Forget slipping on stacks of gold rings and cumbersome bundles of glittering bangles; at Valentino’s SS20 show, Pat McGrath sent models down the runway with a different kind of bling. Crystal encrusted eyes, oversized gold wings that melted into oversized brows, and sparkling accents sitting on wispy lashes like drops of gold. The unifying theme was the gold that flashed brilliantly against the collection’s sheer ruched dresses.
"Pierpaolo [Piccioli] really wanted gold," McGrath shared. For Mother Makeup, that meant pulling out discontinued Swarovski crystals, and gold lashes she’d collected in the ‘90s that were buried in her treasure trove of old couture makeup kits. Creating a mesh of pure fantasy and real-world wearability, Pat McGrath truly went for the gold.
