PIXIWOO PRESENTS: HOLLYWOOD ICONS
1 x 60 min for BBC Worldwide
In their first ever documentary, You Tube superstars Sam and Nic Chapman, aka Pixiwoo, explore the ways that the ultra glamorous icons of Hollywood’s golden age continue to inspire and inform modern make up techniques. Smart, revelatory and exquisitely filmed, this is a thoughtful exploration of the most influential beauty looks of all time.
Beginning in 1920s Hollywood and working their way through the decades, Sam and Nic chart the history of modern makeup by exploring the ICONS whose style defined their eras, from Clara Bow to Elizabeth Taylor. They find out how each achieved their image, discover why it could only have emerged in that particular age, and reveal the reasons why they are still influencing the fashion world today.
Part observational documentary, part constructed travelogue filmed in glamorous locations in Los Angeles and London, this documentary is packed with take home information and technique advice for the audience to embrace at home. Not only do Sam & Nic interview an array of fascinating contributors who knew or are influenced by the icons, they also perform amazing makeup tutorials for each icon on members of their fan base – informing the beauty regimes of all who watch the programme.
