Fashion Week has just begun but there's already tons of gorgeous hair and makeup looks to drool over. We've rounded up our favorite styles, including this gorgeous fishtail braid from Nicholas K., for you to enjoy. Read on to see our favorite looks from Fashion Week so far.
MAC makeup artist James Kaliardos created this gorgeous golden girl look at the Ruffian show using pearly gold shadows and metallic pigments. "She's an American expat adapting to the French culture. It's a neutral palette but the gold makes it glamorous," he said of the look.
Bright eyeliner, which was pretty much everywhere last spring, will make a return for 2011. The quirky highlighter yellow shade worn by models at the Peter Som show provided a beautiful, edgy contrast to their piece-y, boho waves.
When we caught sight of the hair at Jen Kao, we audibly gasped. L'Oral Professionnel lead stylist Joseph DiMaggio created a stunning masterpiece of a hairstyle that was slicked-back in the front and featured a mix of braids, knots, twists and texture in the back.
Orange lips, another huge trend from last spring, is back again. The difference this time is pairing the bright, sunny look with deep, moody eyes. MAC's Christian McCulloch gave models at Vena Cava a bright orange stain on the lips and dark shadows around the outer corners of the eyes to create a "Michelle Pfeiffer from Scarface in 1983" look.
Some designers like to keep their makeup looks pretty and low-key, while others like to go the more conceptual route. Such was the case at Cushnie et Ochs, where models sported ghostly white eyes, muted lips and soft, wispy waves. The overall effect was very eerie, yet still quite elegant.
Models at Christian Siriano were given a healthy dose of faux color to help accentuate the "romantic, nomadic" vibe. Makeup artist Polly Osmond for Victoria's Secret gave them that wandering-in-the-desert look by blending shimmery bronzer and red pigment on the cheekbones to create the world's sexiest sunburn.
We love a good retro look and this one at Richard Chai is no exception. The swooped-back, 1940s hair was accentuated with dark-rimmed eyes and a nude lip. "Richard's collection is all about pure, de-saturated, muted tones--a strong eye and nude lip are a great contrast to complete the look," said Revlon's Global Artistic Director Gucci Westman.
