Fantasy Inspires McQueen Looks

Tree roots, insects, wood nymphs and the alien in the movie "Species" inspired looks at Alexander McQueen.

Tree roots, insects, wood nymphs and the alien in the movie "Species" inspired looks at Alexander McQueen.

"It's like they have veins or tree roots growing on their faces," said hair stylist Paul Hanlon, who created the look by snaking tendrils of hair over models' faces and holding them in place with hair nets. "The nets are used
like a mask."

At the back of the head, hair was pulled into rope-like shapes, reminiscent of wooden heels on some shoes worn on the runway.

"It looks like a very twisted tree branch," Hanlon said. Makeup looks, created by Peter Philips for MAC Cosmetics, featured skin prepped with skin-sculpting foundation and Prep + Prime loose powder. A hint of Powder Blush in Breath of Plum warmed up cheeks while Lipmix in Burgundy was used on pouts.
