Rue du Mail up close

Eugene whips up a frenzy
The running order
Smoke gets in your eyes

Busying ourselves backstage, we managed to sneak a few pictures of 'the look' at Rue du Mail away from the drama of the runway. Martine Sitbon's longstanding collaborator, the art director Marc Ascoli, told us that she wanted every model to be 'a set of eyes, intense blue eyes, floating down the catwalk'. What this equated to was Charlotte Tilbury's smoky pewter shadowing the whole socket on an otherwise barely-there face. To offset these eyes, hair was slick, clean and, s Eugene Souleiman so aptly dubbed it, sharp as the crack of a bullwhip.
