Getting her hair looking right at the Thursday première came down to celebrity hairstylist David Babaii again, using the IT&LY range of hair products.
After blow-drying with a large round brush until her hair was dry and straight, Babaii took the IT&LY Italian Racing Red two-inch Digital Iron for maximum smoothness. He suggests ‘taking small thin sections and spraying with IT&LY Pure Texture and combing prior to running the iron through the hair,’ according to notes supplied by Babaii’s publicist. ‘To finish, he created a side part for just enough intrigue, setting the look into place with IT&LY’s Pure Definition Hair Spray.’
Designer Tamsin Cooper, meanwhile, will launch a bespoke collection of accessories for the Toitū Otago Settlers’ Museum on December 8, referencing detail from a beautiful mid-1930s red silk cocktail dress housed in the Museum’s permanent collection.
It complements an ongoing collaboration with the Royal New Zealand Ballet, which has proven a hit with audiences.
The range will feature silk velvet fashion accessories using hand-embroidery, hand-beading and other handcraft techniques. Metallic gold thread, sparkling glass beads and sequins feature, and the range includes a coin purse, handbag, overnight bag, keyring, brooch, jewellery pouch, compact mirror, scarf and wrap. The colour palette is ruby red, ebony and teal.
Cooper’s TV show, Hearts in Crafts, continues Sunday nights in New Zealand at 7 p.m. on the TVNZ Heartland channel.
