PFW Spring 2014: Backstage beauty at Jean Paul Gaultier

"The idea behind the look today is a riff on Dancing With The Stars," says Guido Palau from the red-carpeted steps of the famous Paradis Latin cabaret club. (Since any chance of being able to maintain a normal body temperature in the sardine-can backstage area had long been abandoned, Redken's affable Global Creative Consultant was speaking to journalists upstairs.) More runway pics from PFW Spring 2014 after the break...

While rehearsals with models Liu Wen, Anais Pouliot, Catherine McNeil, Joan Smalls (doing salsa) and Karlie Kloss (vogueing to Jermaine Jackson) took place in the background, Palau admitted the look for Jean Paul Gaultier was a tough one to describe. "It's because we're doing a variety of looks," he explained. "Obviously at Gaultier, it's always about individuality, so we have an Amy Winehouse bouffant, we have afros, we have quiffs, Marilyn Monroe... it's a huge cast of characters auditioning for a dance competition." Unsurprisingly, this meant the key products were "lots and lots of mousse, and even more hair spray (Redken Forceful 23 Super Strength Finishing Spray).

Suddenly, Coco Rocha hit the stage to practice her Grease-themed routine and the strains of "You're The One That I Want" began blasting through the speakers. Palau took the opportunity to dash off and get back to work.
