Peter Phillips creates and styles make-up for the Dior Haute-Couture Collection runway show. He is the Creative and Image Director for Dior Make-Up. For the show, Peter created two different looks to accompany a contemporary silhouette with either a strong black eye, or a fiery red lip. “This diaphanous beauty displays eyes emphasised with black eyeliner combined with a nude lip, while some models put in appearances displaying scarlet lips set against a flawless complexion.” Only a few groups of models in the middle and at the end of the show, wore an intense shade of red lipstick. The idea was to create a coup de Trafalgar and revive the memory of the red looks thus named by Christian Dior, who would send these flamboyant designs out in the middle of a show to take the audience by surprise.
