Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Fall ’09: Diego Binetti

Lead hairstylist for Sebastian Professional Thomas Dunkin

Diego Binetti’s innovative Fall ’09 show on Sunday at Focus Studios featured dancers from the Cedar Lake Dance Company, who pushed models on round platforms onto the runway, where they dismounted and walked the floor. Backstage, lead hairstylist for Sebastian Professional Thomas Dunkin created hairstyles inspired by Marlene Dietrich’s glamorous look from the 1920s. Dunkin began by working Sebastian Professional Mousse Forte through the hair, then blow-drying it with a round brush. He then divided the hair into sections, spraying them with Shaper Zero Gravity hairspray and curling them with a 1/2-inch iron then pinning each curl. Finally, the hair was brushed out and randomly pinned up to jaw length, then sprayed with Shine Define hairspray. The makeup was equally stunning. Lead makeup artist for Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics (OCC) Katie Pellegrino applied metallic eyebrow shapes to brows in silver, gold and bronze, and used OCC’s new Lip Tar in Patricia on lips to give them a pop of fuchsia-purple. Graphic black eyeliner and a dusty cheek finished the gothic, feminine look. Dancers, who were clad in black Spandex unitards, were made up with half black and half white airbrush makeup by OCC’s CEO and Creative Director David Klasfeld. For the finishing touch, CND lead nail tech Angie Wingle gave the nails a medieval feeling with four distinctive nail designs featuring gold, silver and black. —Lotus Abrams, Managing Editor
