The first make-up artist ever to receive the CFDA’s Founder’s Award, an honour bestowed at Monday night’s ceremony, Pat McGrath is undeniably one of the most influential creatives in the industry. Having conjured up artistic, divisive and trend-setting catwalk looks for brands from Christian Dior to Louis Vuitton, the make-up artist also has a beauty line of her own and has celebrated decades at the very top of her game. Here, Vogue looks back at some of her most mesmerising catwalk creations.
