A while back, she painted a cheetah pattern on the hair of models at a Jean-Paul Gaultier fashion show, but this time she evoked a beast of a different stripe: a zebra.

No actual model's hair was harmed in making this cool animal effect. Instead, Odile used stencils to paint the black, white, and metallic zebra stripes on extensions, then attached them to one side of the hair, and sprayed with John Frieda Frizz-Ease 3-Day Straight Semi-Permanent Styling Spray. The other side, in sharp contrast, was styled in a glamorous take on the '80s Los Angeles look. "We clip it in below a deep side part, cut it short, and pin it all to the side," she said. The Rodarte designers, sisters Kate and Laura Mulleavy, cemented the zoological connection by giving the models Sally Hansen tortoiseshell manicures. Wild, indeed.
