There were close to 70 models at yesterday’s Dior show, among them model Ruth Bell, the British model last season who went from waist-length strawberry hair to a buzz cut, from obscurity to fame. Having walked in over 50 runway shows and on the covers of Vogue China and T Magazine China, Bell is personally familiar with the transformative powers of beauty with shears, a great makeup artist, and hairstylist. But with this new video, Bell personally shows you what it’s like to metamorphose backstage over the course of a few hours and talks about how laughing is her favorite beauty look. Click to watch Bell go from model-wearing-plaid-off-duty to a ’60s impish pixie in tulle with fluttery, butterfly lashes, with the aid of a specially wielded mascara wand and Dior’s image and creative director, Peter Philips.
