It seems to me that Guido Palau was lacking inspiration when it came to hair-styling for the Spring 2010 shows. A braid is a pretty common hairstyle, but for Palau to style messy braids for both Alexander Wang and Miu Miu is pretty lazy. The only difference between the styles were the part placements, on the side for Wang and in the middle for Miu Miu. I like the look, don’t get me wrong, but is there more to Palau’s repertoire than braids?

Peter Philips on the makeup he did for Alexander McQueen: “We were inspired by clowns, divas and Pierrot, with a bit of Joan Crawford thrown in.” Using Chanel products, makeup artist Peter Philips created an “extreme image of glamor” with a very white face and a dark lip, drawn in a wide oval around the mouth.
Meanwhile, hairstylist Guido Palau taped sculptures made of spray-painted Coke cans to the models’ heads, which were wrapped with stockings.
