Including riffs on the classic red lip, metallic everything and museum-worthy hairstyles.
Runway hair and makeup drew from materials like foil, rhinestones, gold leaf, fine pigments — and, of course, straight-up craft glitter.
Color-blocking, racing stripes and negative space — for your eyelids!
Embrace the humidity. It's looking greasy for spring.
Bonjour belles! We’ve descended on the City of Lights to take in the sights, and of course that includes gorgeous beauty looks coming down the catwalk. From the berry lips at Anthony Vaccarello to the bleached blondes at Haider Ackermann, click through to see what’s been big in backstage beauty here in France this week.
Yesterday was a day of beautiful, impeccable hair and makeup. Proenza Schouler's girl was a bit dirty and downtown (as she usually is), Marchesa's was regal (ditto), and Anna Sui's was, well, you'll just have to see for yourself! Click through for all the hair and makeup looks from Proenza, Marchesa, Rachel Zoe, and Anna Sui.
The last two days have been pretty colorful backstage. From Chloe Norgaard's neon hair and tons of statement lips everywhere, it's been pretty fun to look at. But don't worry, there's plenty of wearable inspiration too, in the form of Kate Moss hair and dewy skin. Click through to check out beauty looks from Rodarte, Oscar de la Renta, Vera Wang and tons more.
Yesterday was pretty exciting, fashion-wise: Alexander Wang, Prabal Gurung, and Altuzarra all showed collections, and we were lucky enough to be backstage with the beauty teams, too.

The backstage world before a fashion show can be a weird and wonderful place. My experience at Topshop Unique was especially so on Saturday, not for any specific lightning bolt reason, but more because of a culmination of many small experiences. I gathered a lot of information that afternoon (and a lot of poor quality pictures) and decided it was worth a re-telling. So, put on your special all-access wristband and follow me: 1:30: Arrive at train station, to creepy unused old Eurostar section. Get wristband and head up a long ramp and non-functioning escalator. Oh! There’s a glass ceiling and tons of light. No longer creepy. 1:35: I notice that the models all have gold paint in their hair. And I also say hi to Charlotte Free, the pink-haired model who was a fixture for a season or two on the runways. She still has pink hair.
