Backstage at Colcci is buzzing on day three. The room is full of chatter about the show line-up to come, the makeup being done and the hair being pinned into place. The models seem unusually at ease for this show. Maybe they’re just happy to be walking the runway with some of the best: Gisele Bündchen and Alessandra Ambrósio. Or maybe they’re looking forward to meeting the male face of Colcci, Ashton Kutcher, and his wife, Demi Moore.
Whatever the reason, the models of Colcci keep their confidence as they take to the runway to show off the collection of tweeds, plaids, houndstooth, leather and wool. And this one is all about making an entrance. First up is Gisele, in an all-black bustier-style bodysuit, high-waisted short-shorts and a coat that covers them both. The room erupts into applause and whistles as she makes her way to the end of the runway and poses a little longer than usual so everyone can take a look. Alessandra makes her appearance twice, in a black leather mini-dress and tweed and houndstooth pieces similar to Gisele’s. She walks with an air of confidence that makes you understand why she’s one of Victoria’s Secret‘s chosen few. And Ashton doesn’t grace the room with his presence until it’s all over, walking alongside the designers and Alessandra, as Demi watches from the first row. The crowd seems slightly confused by the fact that he didn’t actually partake in the show (as am I), but his appearance is enough to please everyone. So are the clothes: studded camel leather pants, pink dresses – one in leather and the other in lace – and a blue fur coat are some of the highlights.
