I'm declaring today Pat McGrath Day, a national holiday in honour of John Galliano's right hand lady of false eyelashes, Pat McGrath... although I have so many pictures of her work it may end up being Pat McGrath Fortnight or Pat McGrath Month.
I'd also like to add that I thought it necessary to recognise McGrath's amazing talent. Considering she's one of the world's top make up artists, I suppose she doesn't actually need my help. Regardless, I do find it quite galling when people speak/write in irreverent tones about how beautiful runway models are. Newsflash! All they did was get born, say no to a second helping of cake and walk in a straight line with an air of confidence. If it wasn't for the creativity and skills of hair and makeup people like Pat McGrath, all we would see is a bunch of skinny teenagers with good cheekbones clomping about.
I feel like I'm being a negative, but whatever.
My plan for the next however many days is to post as-many-as-is-digestible-in-one-sitting shots of Pat McGrath's runway make up for Christian Dior. After a while the "Your daily Pat McGrath" category will give deliver a big dose of McGrath glitter-dusted goodness. End result? You'll be gagging for a fancy dress party and checking your diary for available dates.
Galliano's "Barbie Goes to Tibet" Collection. Can you see it?
More globetrotting Galliano, firstly a romantic take on safari chic complete with mosquito net, followed by gold-encrusted Aztec glamazons.
What you would get if a technicolour cossack KGB agent and a geisha fell in love.
