Eleven by Venus Williams Spring 2013 Hair and Makeup

Venus Williams Has Fashion Week's Easiest Look

At most fashion shows, it's the models who tower over everyone else. But backstage at EleVen, Venus Williams had the strongest presence in the room. The 6'1" tennis superstar was bringing back her line of sportswear and workout gear, constantly smiling and in good spirits before the presentation. Instead of using traditional models, she invited athletes to box, dance, and stretch as they showed off the collection.

"They're athletes, so it's clean," said key makeup artist Lottie of the fresh-faced look. "Some are wearing Aqua Black eyeliner tight to the lashes, but we're focusing on the skin." For a sweat-proof finish, Lottie applied Make Up For Ever HD Foundation to the face and body. Hair was similarly athletic, with John Barrett Salon hairstylist Mahogany creating individualized ponytails and braids for each athlete. "They're all sporty and trendy styles," she explained, "but they still allow you to move." Consider it a real-life beauty look created for a larger-than-life superstar.
