Guido Palau helped Sara Burton to design the metal helmets that the models wore in the Alexander McQueen Spring 2014 Collection. Using Redken Hardwear 16 Super Strong Gel and pinned sponges, the models headgear stayed in place without a single wobble on the runway. Reminiscent of the Tron inspired headgear, minus the visor, the runway could have easily been mistaken for a movie set, with female extras, for a fantastic sci-fi thriller. To pull away from a space warrior effect, a no makeup policy left the models with their natural skin on the runway.

The fresh-face look was authentic with genuine female warrior intrigue. Makeup artist Peter Phillips used Fardel, a water-based black pro paint, with an airbrush system to create a shadow effect around the models hairlines. “I wanted to create a shadow that would connect the face to the helmet and make the models more anonymous,” Phillips explained. He wanted a down-to-earth girl portrayed with characteristics that were not out of place for the type of woman the designer wanted to portray. The models perfectly played the role of the Alexander McQueen girl on the runway, with flawless makeup.
