THE SCOOP: Basso & Brooke are known for their vibrant, colourful digital prints. This season, inspired by Jeff Koons and Herb Ritts, they streamlined silhouettes and played with new fabrics. "Basso and Brooke work with extreme aspects," Pichon told us backstage. "We wanted bring a lot of shine to the hair. Think Stephanie Seymour coming out of the pool drenched. We also wanted to keep the shape simple."

The makeup team also went for classic simplicity, but with a standout feature. "We were going for a 90s minimalism with a strong, dark lip," Kaliardos said. To complement the hair, he plumped for a wet look lipstick.

GET THE LOOK - MAKEUP: According to Kaliardos, the best way to do a dark lip is to keep the rest of the face looking healthy and moisturised. He recommends applying L'Oréal Derma Genesis serum on top of makeup.

GET THE LOOK - HAIR: Want to look like you just went for a dip, without the chlorine? Pichon used L'Oréal Studio Line Pure Wet Gel. "Apply from roots to ends with water," Pichon recommended. "The best part is, it thickens up the hair."
