Once the beauty team has their looks right where they want them, it's time to show them to the designer. BCBG founder Max Azria and wife Lubov Azria, the creative director of the brand, ask that both models be dressed in looks from the collection. They then have the models walk so that they can see how the hair and makeup looks in motion. If they don't like something, they will ask the hair stylist or makeup artist to tweak it, and then the girls are brought back to them for approval. This can happen anywhere from once to multiple times at a test, depending on how exacting the designer is and how complicated the look is.
