If you’re seeking something to spark your beauty imagination ahead of Halloween weekend, look no further than time-travel psychological thriller Last Night in Soho. The film, which hits theaters today, stars Thomasin McKenzie as Eloise, a new-to-London fashion student whose daydreams are dominated by the Swinging Sixties—an era she’s eventually transported to as her vivid dreams (and, erm, paranormal abilities) find her entering the body of Anya Taylor-Joy’s Sandie, a rising cabaret singer and fixture on the West End scene. Throughout the twists and turns of the film, the dark side of Swinging London’s past is revealed like a fluorescent fever dream, with dark and dazzling hair and makeup that evokes mod nostalgia and something a little more sinister all at once.
“We knew it had to be classy with an edge to keep the suspense,” explains head makeup and hair designer Lizzie Yianni-Georgiou of her vision for the film’s beauty, which she conceived in collaboration with director Edgar Wright and costume designer Odile Dicks-Mireaux. In nodding to the Youthquake movement, Georgiou zeroed in on how British fashion designer Mary Quant and London boutique Biba transformed style, while also acknowledging the French scene of that era and, of course, its unofficial face, Brigitte Bardot.
