The Aliens of Alex Wang 2013 collection

“I’m not allowed to talk about that one,” said makeup artist Diane Kendal. “Alex wanted it to be a secret for the show.” The Alex in question is none other than king of minimalist futura, Alexander Wang. We’re backstage at his spring ’13 runway show, and the crop of models walking around with the “secret” beauty look are starting to multiply. We’re more than intrigued.
Here, the mystery unveiled: The 10 models that closed the show sported bleached-out, futuristic brows and high shimmer on the face, created with NARS Albatross highlighting blush. We suddenly understood all the hush-hush, as the models, sporting all-white ensembles, scattered out amongst the runway as the lights dimmed and spotlights circled them. Their outfits glowed in the dark, as they marched off stage, wrapping up another successful season for Wang.
All of the models sported either black or white tape down their parts, topping off a sleek, modern ponytail.
