In 1998, My Aunt Maggie (make-up artist) invited me to attend the launch of Dior's fragrance Hypnotic Poison. I think it was the first launch I had ever attended, if not, it was certainly the grandest. I remember being introduced to many important fashion people but, of course, being a 20 year old country girl, I was far more interested in the free bar serving individual bottles of Moët Champagne and the random attendance of Paul from Neighbours...
...and then I saw Milla.
My bedroom walls were plastered with images of the supermodels of the time, Linda, Claudia, Christy, Helena, Naomi, Kate, Karen, Claudia Mason, Trish Goff, Nadja, Cindy but the image of Milla in the red gloss eyeshadow and matching lips had pride of place on my bedroom wall and has remained one of my favourite images ever since.
That particular look (above) was created by Make-up Artist Stephane Marais. The video below is a very short introduction to some of the other looks Stephane created around the same time.
