Minutes before the Wildfox swim models took to the runway atop the pool at SOHO Beach House last night, they primped and preened in a 14th floor suite with TIGI hair and Stila makeup pros.

The 2014 Wildfox resort line has a clear tie to the 1970s and the models’ hair was curled and teased into outsized feathered looks, adorned with exotic flowers or exaggerated sun hats. The candy-colored stripes and fruit motifs of the swimsuits were offset by luminous, golden makeup and the occasional pair of oversized aviator or round frame sunglasses.

While the models remained calm and placid backstage, the suite was packed and frenzied with stylists getting them prepped right up until the “ten minutes to show time” call.

Here is a behind the scenes look.
