Guy Nicolet, Revlon’s international director: he finds inspiration in a film or a record, a girl he sees in the street or at the theatre, translates the mood into colour and from then on thinks about the bone structure, “the most important feature of a woman’s face”. He has a great sense of fashion, lives a very fashionable life between his gothic Roman house and bishop’s palace in the country, and for him “fashion changes at the same moment for the designer and the visagiste”. His favourite colour is blue, a thousand different blues. Here, opposite, eyes of the water blue reflected from the ceilings of his house on Lake Bracciano. The pastel skin, Perfect Beige Perfect Make-Up dusted with Perfect Powder, from the Ultima II Collection. Eyes shaped with Plum Rose and Orchidaceous Eye Couture ’70 Make-Up, with Sable Plum Lash Make-Up Automatique. New Orange Jade lipstick from the Private Label Collection. Painted leather and bead chokers, by Pablo & Delia at The Shop, Vidal Sassoon, Sloane St. Hair by Oliver at Leonard.

Always delighted to see another Baby Doll advert, and this one is particularly fabulous – making more of a feature of the iconic logo girl than any other I’ve seen.

In the Fifties a trip to the hairdresser’s was a daunting ordeal – for you and for each hair on your head. Vidal Sassoon changed all that in 1964, and substituted the welcome breeziness of the blow-drying second-generation stylists. Who are the other top hairdresses, and who goes to them?
There are no credits for the clothes, but I think Marianne’s glorious ensemble must be a Bill Gibb, and Sian Phillips’s elegant coat looks like a John Bates to me. Such a glorious array of celebs, I think Michaeljohn win on numbers (but Ricci Burns really ought to win, purely because of the way his ladies are dressed!).
