In the Michael Kors parade, the real protagonist was the model Patti Hansen
Throughout the dazzling show, glamorous memories of the decade assailed the Staten Island model. "Seeing everyone dancing when [Barry Manilow] started singing made me cry," he exulted backstage at the show's tremendous finale, with the famous crooner belting out his 1978 hit "Copacabana" and all. the cast of models – including Bella and Gigi Hadid, Adesuwa Aighewi, Selena Forrest, Lily Nova and Bomi Youn – clapping along with him and swaying their hips on a stage of gold tinsel. "It's like feeling back in Studio 54! ”.
But it wasn't just the music, the dance steps and the clothes (fur coats! Feather boas! Sequin halter dresses!) that fueled her nostalgia: the smoky eyes and explosive bouffant bobs also contributed. "It's not much different from how I wear it now," she commented as stylist Orlando Pita styled her stunning blonde locks. "I have dark eyes and never blow-dry my hair!"

In keeping with this Kors love letter to the high voltage and diversity of Manhattan's West 50s area in the late 1970s, Pita offered an extraordinary array of looks – cascading bobbing waves, oversized loops or cloud afro– , personalized in detail and combined with a multitude of lopsided berets and bright cabaret-style headdresses. After devouring the revealing documentary Studio 54 last year, the professional felt like he was in a hairdresser's paradise: "In the disco years, I was in high school and I used to go to Studio 54," he explained. "[That time] is a part of me. I'll always have that connection to it." Makeup artist Dick Page was, to say the least, on the same wavelength. “Her name was Gigi, she was a showgirl. . .”, she hummed as she touched up two different smoky eye looks, one with washed-out violet shadow and the other with an onyx and gold gradient. "I like the idea of using makeup as decoration," she explained. "It's more fun when you don't have to think about it as much!" In this vein, some of Page's eye makeup, like the one she booked for Hansen, was more subtle, with a jet-black eyeliner and multiple layers of mascara to give a lot of volume to the eyelashes.
