Before the procession of sparkling, electro-lagoon dresses and intricate, knit-web separates came down the runway at Jen Kao
, the back stage area saw models being equipped with killer gold-tipped nail art
and matching gold eyebrows—remind us to try that this weekend! Hair was twisted into side-wave bangs, enforcing the image of alt-universe model royalty who wore rain-drop dotted tights and massive purple platforms. Even before they lined up to greet the runway between two sculptural clumps of glowing molten lava, we knew this lineup was bound to be the stuff of fantasy.
