Backstage at Diesel Black Gold

Backstage at Diesel Black Gold’s fall 2011 show, models are smouldering. Hair is side-slicked into a rough, textured style that manages to traverse the territories of rock-chic and romance all at once, and make-up is as hard as the collection’s tough leather pieces. Creating a perfectly coherent look isn’t always easy, but creative director Sophia Kokosalaki just gets it. Today’s completed look at Diesel is in perfect unity with the collection.

The beauty look is all about the eyeliner, makeup artist extraordinaire Pat McGrath tells Specifically, it’s lashings of Covergirl’s Liquiline Blast being used to create the youthful, sexy look. As the girls and boys are preened and primed for the runway we catch a few moments with models from glamazonian Estonian Karmen Pedaru to Australian darling Bambi Northwood-Blyth – the photos from which you can see at the bottom of this article.
