Doutzen Kroes Returns to the Runway! A Moment with the Supermodel Backstage at Fendi

 Today’s Fendi show provided Milan’s first supermodel sighting—in the form of Doutzen Kroes. “Karl [Lagerfeld] asked me to come and, well, of course, it was an honor,” said the Dutch beauty, who was looking remarkably fresh-faced and healthy backstage, despite the early arrival time. “I flew in from Holland last night for the fitting,” she continued. “When Karl calls, you say yes!”

 Wearing leather leggings and a pale blue tee, Kroes, who gave birth to her second child this past fall, was looking remarkably fit—the result, she says, of regular Ballet Beautiful sessions—as she sank into the makeup chair. Once seated, makeup artist Peter Philips painted on a “rough brushstroked” smudge of Diorshow Art Pen along the lashes, which he was adapting slightly to suit each model’s eye shape, for an off-kilter, graphic effect.

 Hairstylist Sam McKnight blasted her signature waves with Oribe texturizing spray next, then pinned them up into an easy half-twist half-ponytail. “The collection is architectural—so we wanted to offset that a bit,” he said of leaving wispy bits free around the face. “This isn’t the kind of woman who cares too much about her hair anyway.” Before stepping onto the runway, each of Lagerfeld’s models was fit with a slim leather headband, which, in Kroes’ case, arrived in a cool shade of cream that matched her show-opening statement coat—and offered up the chicest second day hair strategy of season yet.
