....that just about sums up day two of Milano although not necessarily in that order (and the panettone may have featured more than once).
First up (and by first up we’re talking an eye watering 7am), was Moschino where the designer behind the brand was feeling the love for good ol’ Blighty with a collection that paid homage to an Italian version of young British beauties (tartan miniskirts anyone?). The result was fresh, youthful English roses courtesy of a perky pony by Sam McKnight and a creamy dreamy complexion thanks to Tom Pecheux.
Sportmax was equally jaunty with fresh rosebud mouths and cheeks that looked as though the girls had been running around in the snow (of which there is plenty here to choose from). We, however, got our pep up from a stiff Americano before it was on to Etro. With a roll-call of catwalk A-listers, make-up maestro Charlotte Tilbury and Wella Professionals hair genius Eugene had the best possible canvases to metamorphose into the ‘cool, strong, powerful women’ requested by the designer. The result was a ‘faux-hawk’ (watch this space, I see a trend coming on) thanks to lashings of Wella Moulding Paste, and a translucent gunmetal eye thanks to a mix of MAC’s ‘Airforce Blue’ Cream Colour Base and eye gloss.
Another food stop later (when in Milan ‘n all) and it was over to Blumarine where the models were looking impossibly bright- eyed and bushy tailed having been set upon by Tom Pecheux who used a melange of creamy apricots and peaches to give the girls a fresh, youthful glow. Tom, where are you when I need you?
