Those with an ear to the world of fashion are well aware that yet another season of Paris Couture Week is currently under way. From Jan. 16 to Jan. 25, the industry’s top designers shared their Spring/Summer 2024 collections. And the resulting beauty looks will dictate trends for the coming year.

Put plainly: Glam trends are leaning toward the unapologetically bold, with a whole lot of coquette inspiration thrown in the mix.

Jean Paul Gaultier's show, for example, featured gemstone arches in place of eyebrows. Both Chanel and Giambattista Valli pinned giant bows in their models’ hair, playing into the ubiquitous coquette trend. Meanwhile, on the Georges Hobeika runway, ’60s influence was abundant — in both hair and makeup.

These high-fashion brands aren’t coming to play and their A-list attendees — Rihanna, Jennifer Lopez, Zendaya, and Kylie Jenner among them — have risen wonderfully to the occasion. In the last few days, stars have debuted shocking new haircuts and the boldest of bold lips.
