Paris Haute Couture Week is always responsible for the most stunning, timeless beauty looks, and this season was no exception. Here is a closer look at the must-know trends from the Paris runways.
The 80’s look has stood the test of fashion’s fickle moods and is still dominating the runways, as we could see in Armani, Versace and Jean-Paul Gaultier Haute Couture shows this week.
Metallics are versatile this season. The liquid smoky eyes at Jean Paul Gaultier and the frosted golden locks at Maison Margiela’s show marked the difference and became protagonist of the show.
While minimalist beauty has been a trend long seen on the runways, each season offers a new and refreshing take on the look. At the Christian Dior Fall 2017 Couture show, models walked the runway with messy and wild natural curls pulled loosely into a low ponytail with a bare face, while the girls at Schiaparelli wore a modern take on the classic French girl ponytail, styled with loose strands framing the face.
Multi-Colored Smoky Eyes:
A pop of color served as the perfect complement to the eccentric fashion seen on the runways at Chanel and Alexandre Vauthier. Models at Alexandre Vauthier wore frosted, ombre lavender smoky eyes, while the Chanel girls paired their chic hats with exaggerated and colorful strokes of yellow, green, orange and blue.
Replacing classic black ribbons and oversized headbands, embellished hats have returned to the runway as the accessory of the season. While models at A.F. Vandevorst wore whimsical caps decorated with medals, Dior kept the look more refined with a chic face veil.
Neon color blocking:
We were very excited to see one of our favorite trends in Ready-to-Wear — color blocking — hitting the couture runway shows, only in NEON. At Valentino, Pierpaolo Piccioli mesmerized us with beautiful relaxed and easy-to-wear looks, yet mastered with elegance and sophistication. Without a doubt, one of the best shows of the week.
