7 Beauty Lessons We Learned From Paris Fashion Week


7 Beauty Lessons We Learned From Paris Fashion Week There’s more than one way to stand out in a crowd—and Paris Fashion Weekoffered no shortage of beauty statements for taking your personal style to the next level. From the full-on sex appeal of power ponytails and vinyl red lips to the subtle charm of rosy cheeks and slept-in waves, here are seven ideas we plan on stealing from the runways right now.

The ponytail has a new sense of purpose, trading sporty connotations for supercharged femininity. Balmain’s model gang (shown) wore theirs bound high and swinging with sex appeal, whileDior’s low, ribbon-tied styleconjured something more sensual and Céline’s streamlined braided look was built for speed.

Graphic plays on black eyeliner are moving away from a classic winged liquid flick. For inspiration, look no further than the Louis Vuitton runway, where each model wore a different spiky kohl iteration, scribbled on in starburst patterns or sketched into geometric forms.

If there’s just one way to stand out after dark, it’s with a singular hit of sparkle: A rimming of electric blue glitter along the lash lines (Dries Van Noten) or a slick of reflective silver on the lids (shown here atMaison Margiela) is the quickest way to shine.

Alexander Wang’s casting for Balenciaga, which included non-model friends Riley Keough, Bella Heathcote, and Zoë Kravitz, celebrated a more expansive definition of beauty—and hit on something bigger in the process. On or off the runway, the sounding call for body confidence and individuality has never felt more appealing.

If you’re searching for a solution for elevating a messy knot or bun, the season’s decorative hair accessories hold the key. For evening, we’re placing our bets onChanel’s metallic barrettes (shown), Lanvin’s ribbon-strung chignons, and Miu Miu’s quirky crown headbands.

There’s more than one way to wear a red lip right now, and the easiest way to reimagine a classic crimson comes down to the finish. Case in point: Nina Ricci’s lacquered mouth (shown) combined Parisian allure with the high-gloss finish of car paint.
