Hours before the fashion show took place, Lauren and her team started creating their magic on the models’ hair at Mercedes-Benz of Scottsdale. The floor-to-ceiling windows inside the dealership offered a glimpse of the models’ getting their hair and makeup done before the show. The hair look of the night was Brigitte Bardot inspired- loose, bombshell curls.

Michael’s beautiful, intricate gowns paraded down the runway one after another. His designs included sequin mermaid-like statement dresses, to mesh and lace curve-hugging silhouettes. Michael’s inspiration for the collection was 60’s and 70’s inspired with soft and feminine, yet edgy pieces. Plunging neck lines and laser cut fabrics graced the runway as the models fiercely strutted down.
