The 18-year-old strutted her stuff on the catwalk for red-carpet favourite Tadashi Shoji and Brock Collection yesterday, with ’80s supermodel Cindy Crawford sitting front row at the latter.

This follows her appearances at Paris Fashion Week in July.

“It’s been a crazy year for me,” Fitzgerald told this week’s BW Magazine, the cover of which she graces. “I pinch myself every day that I am doing this.”

However Aussie models were not the only ones ruling the runway.

Sydney-based hairstylist Anthony Nader was brought over to work with fashion royalty.

The creative director of RAW hair salon tended the locks of Kendall Jenner during the Tom Ford show on Wednesday.

“Kendall was super nice, despite all the photographers’ lenses in her face while getting glammed up,” said Nader, who will also work on the Michael Kors and Oscar de la Renta parades.

“Working on a model of this calibre and a show like this is always mind blowing to me, even after all my years of being backstage.”

GLOBAL ATTRACTION

Finally, Australian designers Dion Lee and Zimmermann are also showing.

Sydney-based Zimmermann already has a huge following in the US, with Paris Jackson, Chrissy Teigen and Beyonce all fans of its feminine dresses.

Meanwhile, Gold Coast label Peony swimwear will showcase its wares to the world’s top fashion buyers on the sidelines of New York Fashion Week.

 

THE BEST HAIR LOOKS FROM PARIS FASHION WEEK (AND HOW TO GET THEM)

Anthony Nader rounds out his top picks from Paris Fashion Week – the last stop on the international fashion week tour – and shows you exactly how to get them.

1. BALMAIN

You know I can never go past a really polished and slick high ponytail. It elongates the neckline and gives your face shape an instant lift so you look younger, viagra buy which is like winning the jackpot.

Balmain

YOUR HOW-TO

1. No need to wash your hair if you don’t have time. Use your neutralising spray to create a clean base to work off, as you need super clean strands.

2. Take finer sections starting from the hairline area and blowdry with your nozzle attached and a large paddle brush to ensure frizz free hair.

3. Once dry and you have a straight, reflective surface, use your light hairspray and give a once over on the area you’re working on and brush clean to the crown area in one sweep.

4. Keep directing your hair upwards and then secure with your snag free elastic when your scalp surface is looking polished.

ANTHONY’S HANDY TIP – To ensure your high pony sits on top of your crown, tip your head over and then brush your hair into place. This way is fool proof. Don’t forget to keep the sides brushed up and high as this gives you that instant face lift look – compared to brushing your hair horizontal in a backward direction.

2. CHLOE

I know what you’re thinking: “I don’t see a hairstyle here Anthony” but this “undone” & “carefree” attitude of French hairstyling was huge on so many runways this Spring Summer 2015 season. It’s the ‘too cool, I don’t care what you think of my hair’ kinda attitude girls; remember that.

YOUR HOW-TO

1. Wash your hair with a cleansing shampoo and conditioner to rid away any build-up so your strands look and feel like virgin hair (in hairdressing terms that means natural).

2. Use your UV protector spray and scrunch in all over, combing through with a wide tooth comb.

3. Attach your diffuser on the end of your hairdryer, working in circular movements all over until dry. As you go use only your fingers to dry your newfound French inspired tresses.

4. If you want to add a bit of a haphazard, uneven bend in your hair, pick up two inch sections all over and use your flat iron and give the section a crinkled look. Leave the ends out so it looks more natural then shake out your hair and you’re good to go.

ANTHONY’S HANDY TIP – Remember don’t over style your Chloe look. The less you play with it the better it will look, ’cause remember girls…You don’t care.

3. DRIES VAN NOTON

Dries

Bringing back the old fashioned victory roll and making it modern again and thank you DVN for adding such a fine detail like this and making it wearable.

YOUR HOW-TO

1. Skip the hair wash today as that little bit of natural movement will work wonders for this hairstyle. By all means if your hair is on the finer side, spray some dry shampoo in to thicken up each strand and brush through from roots to ends.

2. Section out a rectangle shape using the middle of your eyebrows as a guide and to the crown area. Clip that up for now.

3. Smooth over your strands from the front of your hairline and direct away from your face.

4. Unclip the top, and now, brush the whole section over to one side a little then wrap up your smooth victory roll and pin till secure.

ANTHONY’S HANDY HINT – When you’re purchasing your dry shampoo, check out the variety of different colours. There’s a coloured spray that will match your colour perfectly rather than using the original white spray that looks like you’ve got a bad case of dandruff.

4. DIOR

Dior

This ponytail may look like the others on the street at a distance, but just wait a second and take a look at the details here for a moment. The base of the tail is tucked in tight at the nape, the ears are peaking through the hair shape and the pretty ribbon is the icing on the cake.

YOUR HOW-TO

1. Use a clarifying shampoo and a leave-in spray conditioner to rid away any oiliness and product residue. You want your strands to feel like baby hair.

2. Smooth over your hair with an extra large paddle brush with loads of bristles so you can tame even the thickest of hair textures.

3. Now sweep your hair clean and smooth from your partline over your ears, securing your pony tight into the nape area. Glide your brush over your tail to get out any stay knots.

4. Get a long ribbon of your colour choice and wrap around the base of the tail, and there you have your most beautiful minimal Dior ponytail.

ANTHONY’S HANDY HINT – Remember the little detail with a little of your ears showing. This is what makes your ponytail far more chic and French. Where’s the French champagne?

5. CHANEL

Chanel

Chanel is my all time favourite each and every season; money is never spared and the show is a complete visual delight for me. It’s always a go-to for hair referencing and even though this season was a simple hair shape with a headband, it’s all about the attitude and how you carry yourself – which is most important.
Remember ladies it’s about oozing with wealth and sophistication, with the headband making you stand out from the rest…even if you can’t afford it.

YOUR HOW-TO

1. No need to wash your French girl inspired hair today, but if your roots are feeling oily you can soak up natural oils by using a dry shampoo on the root area and massage in.

2. Place in your desired part line and scrape your strands back into two loose, low slung ponytails. Secure each tail (think double ponytail here) and let the hair over ears poke out a little.

3. Now use one long clip over the two tail bases and secure, placing your headband of the same colour/texture on top and you have your matching head band and long clip in sync.

ANYHONY’S HANDY HINT – Go bold with your hair accessories here as this is your statement to match your new French confidence.

“The model needs 100 percent confidence in you when they are sitting in your hot seat, so handle them with care and be the pro that you set out to be. Being professional and knowing your game will ensure you achieve the best results.”

“In the weeks leading up to the season, models need to take a seat in the hairdressers chair and have a few moisturising treatments with steam applied. It works wonders and remember that we (hairdressers) need a healthy foundation to work with for best results.”

“It really doesn’t matter what hair the model turns up with. If the model loved those beautiful long hair extensions in the previous show and the hair director on the next show doesn’t have the vision for that kind of hair, out they come. More often than not, at this stage the model is crying, but we do our best to calm her down and treat her like a princess.”

“Dont go for a colour change unless your agent has agreed first. In my (cough, cough) many years of doing shows around the globe, I’ve seen girls turn up with a new colour thinking they would be ‘experimental’ and as a result they haven’t worked that season due to them playing hairdressers at home.”

“Celebrity models are just like you and I at the end of the day, so don’t go gaga over them. You will not only look like the new kid on the block, but you probably won’t be asked to work on more shows in the country you are in or want to work in as word really does get around.”
