Fashion Week Takes a Trip Through Time
Buckle up for a trip through time. During fashion week, designers managed to revisit the past 60 years of hair and makeup by drawing inspiration from some of the most influential decades.
Donna Karan killed it during New York Fashion week, replicating the 1940′s most sought after style with a head turning up-do. Models makeup was kept simple and hair was pulled back out of their face, and fancily into tight buns. Models look dainty, sophisticated, and ready for an evening out. After all, what’s more glamorous than a well done up-do?
Miu Miu got it right with pale peaches and cream skin and bold red lips. Hair was also kept pulled back and out of the face, replicating the glamour of the 1950s. These vintage cat eye sunglasses work perfectly with the models makeup, hair, and statement blouse.
Makeup artists at Jill Sander gained inspiration by flipping through old Andy Warhol photos. Blue shadow and red lips are a makeup faux pas in everyone’s book, but like this, it actually works! Who knew?!
At the Chloe show, makeup artists and hair stylists based their looks on the simple, laid back style of the 1970s. Makeup was kept clean and fresh and hair was kept straight with minimal product. It literally looked like the models did nothing to prep for walking down the runway.
Cyndy Lauper definitely inspired the makeup at Vionnet. The heavy blush, defined lips, and dramatic eye makeup on models was reminiscent of her striking style in the 80s! Girls just wanna have fun!
Alexander Wang played with the look made popular by the Generation Y. Hair was so greasy it almost appeared to be wet. Models makeup also looked barely done, except for some smudgy black eyeliner- furthering the dark, grunge, punk rock theme of the 90s.
