Dolce & Gabbana SS13, the Sicilian Inspiration and Pat McGrath's Make up Backstage! Xx


 Dolce and Gabbana's Spring/Summer 2013
 Ready to Wear show in Milan
evoked most profound Sicilian tradition 
and exquisite hand craftsmanship.

This was seen on the prints 
depicting famous puppets of Sicilian street theatres, 
on the typical local barrows and peculiar wheels,
 on the Caltagirone head-shaped ceramic vases and dishes.




The Celebrity Front Row:
From L to R Carine Restin Roitfeld, Marpessa, Noah Mills, Bianca Balti,
Bianca Brandolini D'Adda, Laetitia Casta, Livia Firth


Backstage, the Designers’ inspiration, 
with a rich colour palette and mix of elements 
recalling hot Sicilian summer as its focal point,
 was brought to life by Pat McGrath 
using Dolce and Gabbana Make Up. 

The Brand Creative Advisor translated the Designers’ 
fashion creativity and vision into a makeup look 
presenting a combination of bright corals 
alongside subtle warm hues.








To achieve a flawless look, Pat applied new 
Luminous Liquid Foundation using the Foundation Brush.
Check my Post when Massilmliano aka Max the Joker 
did my make up with this beautiful
Foundation:




For the show, Pat McGrath 
carefully blended the foundation adding 
extra coverage on the nose and forehead. 
The Concealer was then used to achieve a faultless 
complexion illuminated with light. 



 Blush in Apricot and Sole



Blush in Mocha 



Finally Pat used the Blush in Sole,
Mocha and Apricot, mixing a combination of

warm shades sweeping lightly across models’ 
cheekbones creating a glowing and radiant finish.



Turning her attention to the lips, 
Pat applied the Classic Cream Lipstick in 
Chocolate and Iconic, blending the colour to 
create a lip stain for a provocative look. 
The colour was applied with greater intensity
 at the cupid’s bow, to enhance the lips for a smooth and full finish.


                                       
Pat chose the Nail Lacquer in Pink 
for a final subtle accent. 
The pastel shade and luxurious finish 
perfectly completed the sensual makeup look.

Pat McGrath explained: 
“It has been fantastic creating a make-up look 
for this wonderful collection; 
it pays tribute to The Designers 
love for Sicily so perfectly through 
the use of stunning prints and intricately hand-crafted pieces. 
The clothes evoke a real sense of the traditional 
Mediterranean summer so I wanted to 
bring that to life with the make-up look. 
The models look radiant – the warm coral shades 
are complemented by the sensual red brown 
lip which really adds to the Designers’ inspiration.”

So back to the SS13 Show itself.
Take a look at the most beautiful fifties prints, 
with roman soldiers,'isole eolie' island maps,
images of stained glass, stripes in lime green, red and blue.
There are crocheted hessian, embroidered raffia and dresses
 made from pasta bags
with the italian words  'Mare, Sole, Amore'
and 'fatto a mano' written in red and green.

The show ends with
natural raffia corsets covered 
with black lace and tulle 

and then all 
the girls appeared in the most gorgeous fifties 
bathing suits in a mixture of the beautiful fabrics.

All this inspired by
 Stefano Gabbana and Domenico Dolce's beloved Sicily
The chandelier dangling earrings

are creative as ever.
The incredibly printed 
silk scarves in hair
are very Sophia Loren.
Shoes are raffia platform sandals, a kitten heel sling back,
or tapestry beaded ballet pumps.
 Sparkle Style absolutely adore the section that is 
alternately black devoree polka dots and lace,
and then natural hessian with dark coral brocade.
all just right to wear on a hot summer holiday
to relax and enjoy and love ...

transport yourself to an island paradise! Xx
