Get Elsa Pataky’s  Wet Look This season’s wet look is a versatile option that fits equally well at the office or the beach. This look was seen on the Prada, Lanvin and Jil Sander runways. Actress Elsa Pataky has it just right and Sam Villa, founder of the Sam Villa brand and education artistic director for Redken, explains how to achieve the effect.
