    A lot of mystery surrounds make up artist Pierre La Roche. What is known is that he was born in Algiers. Once "of age," he moved to France and then to England, where he became a make-up artist for Elizabeth Arden in the '60s. After 5 years, he left the company when they insisted he become more conservative. La Roche went solo, and started working with rock stars. He has been credited by starting the glitter-rock look, having created David Bowie's "Ziggy Stardust" and "Aladdin Sane" face-paint, as well as going on tour with The Rolling Stones as their make-up artist.

    La Roche was brought in as a consultant to The Rocky Horror Picture Show to help adapt the heavy-handed look that the actors from The Rocky Horror Show had created for the stage, and soften it for the big screen. He adapted both make up and hair designs for the film.

    La Roche died in Paris in August 1991 after suffering for many years from AIDS.
