The much-anticipated Alice McCall Australian Fashion Week show is happening as we speak and we have all the backstage beauty details.

The look for today is tough and grungy, perfect to try this weekend. "The theme of the collection is quite ethereal, inspired by being in a dream-like state, and so is the set, so we wanted to bring it back to earth and toughen some sort of aspect of the girls," says Jenny Kim for KMS.

Mac Cosmetics' Victoria Baron agrees, "we wanted to marry a glitter grunge look, so you have the juxtaposition of a bit of fun and glamour and a cool, rock chick girl. We had a couple of girls in mind — Abbey Lee Kershaw, Sky Ferreira, Kate Hudson in Almost Famous — and we just thought, what would they wear if they were given a pot of glitter? It's just about making sure it's not too pretty."
