He's the king of theatrics and femininity. His use of the color wheel is otherworldly. He combines Geisha girl with silent movie starlette with Bozo the clown, effortlessly. His name is John Galliano, and I wish he could do my makeup everyday.
Elegant old Hollywood glamour combined with Japanese street style made up this collection. The vibrant colors leap out of the clothes. Equally entertaining is the hair and makeup at John's shows which is always over-the-top and sparkly to boot. Despite a cohesiveness, all models looked different. Coco Rocha was a sailor girl and playfully tugged at her pigtails as she skipped down the runway.
Amongst the models who have been all over the runways this season was Yasmin Le Bon. The former model and wife of Simon Le Bon (Duran Duran) is 45 years old. Wearing a black ruffled trenchcoat with fuschia florals, she stormed down the golden runway with the best of them. Also in the lineup: Angela Lindvall, the 31-year-old former supermodel and 32-year-old Carmen Kass. Using these three beautiful fashion veterans made Galliano's show all the more reason to admire his genius and his love of all women.
