Celebrity stylist Peter Gray shares with us how he created the eye-catching style for Michelle’s short cropped hair:
“The dress was so beautiful with those bronzes and golds that I wanted to reflect that in her hair. I didn’t want it to look styled or even blow-dried, so I created the whole effect on freshly-shampooed, naturally-dried hair. My inspiration was a modern day Jean Seberg with a “Breathless” nuance, but with a soft, sexy and defined texture.”

THE LOOK: The dress was like a shimmery liquid sand and Exotic Dance Duo Eyeshadow resembled that. I couldn’t resist using it. For elongating the eyes and defining them, the Via Appia Larger Than Life Eyeliner was perfect in keeping the lids gold and glossy without being too heavy,” said Matin.
