Models made up as dolls
A special role was played by the make-up, which was created by renowned make-up artist Pat McGrath. McGrath created looks that made the models look like porcelain dolls.

The internet and all fashion lovers agree on one thing: the models look incredibly good and captivate everyone who looks at them.
