Curves are back. Vuitton and Giles embraced the bosom this year— case and point, check out Laetitia Casta opening Vuitton…holy cleavage! Both shows also cast Victoria’s Secret models, one of which (Alessandra Ambrosio) gave birth in November.
Get creative with your eyeliner. We’re used to Chanel’s Peter Philips translating Lagerfeld’s clothes into beauty (that’s how highly coveted nail color Jade came about, people) but this season he went beyond, making smoky eyes painterly— mimicking the paint-dipped bags.
Invest in fur. It was seriously everywhere, even adorning shoes.
You don’t have to be a secret detective to wear a wig. Models at Lanvin’s show wore sleek black wigs that we hear were flown in the night before from Ricky’s NYC.
Statement brows are in. I’m not going to recommend getting crazy-colored brows as done at Balenciaga, but I will say— put down the tweezers and channel your inner-Prada woman.
Less is more— when it comes to your face. Countless shows went the natural route for the face. Think light pinks, slight shimmer, nude lips. But, when it comes to your wardrobe, mini skirts look like they’re going to be collecting dust. It’s either long, pleated, and rather dreamy (à la Vuitton) or hot pants (D&G).
Sometimes the clothes should do all the talking. McQueen's final presentation showcased opulent colors, full shapes, and an all over medieval sensibility. A truly outstanding collection.
