INSPIRATION: Jellyfish.

Both the hair, and the clothing were inspired by Mandy’s vision of Jellyfish.

Backstage, teams from MAC and Ion Studios prepped the models:

Lead stylist Pasquale led the Ion Studios team in creating an under the sea inspired look.

Hair was sprayed with salt water to texturize. Next, hair was back combed to create body, woven into a thick braid, and then pinned over the eyes to create a jellyfish-like shape.

Lead artist Francelle Daly for MAC also followed the Jellyfish theme, keeping eyes bare, while creating an iridescent look for the rest of the face. Pro Prime translucent powder was used on the skin. Frozen white pigment highlighted cheek bones, and strobe cream was smoothed onto arms and legs.

VERDICT: Gorgeous! Another rare collection where I would wear every piece. The airy, flowing fabrics, and bright colors mixed in with basic blacks (my wardrobe staple) blew my mind. This is what a sunset would look like, reflected under the sea.
