Futuristic hair and coquette details ahead.
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.
The Best Beauty Moments
Brow Gems At Jean Paul Gaultier
At Jean Paul Gaultier’s Haute Couture show designed by Simone Rocha, select models were adorned with makeshift eyebrow jewelry. Oversize stones covered their brows entirely, giving the simple glam an utterly futuristic feel.
Otherworldly Glam At Maison Margiela
Closing out Paris Couture Week with a bang, Maison Margiela made headlines with its inspiring runway looks and next-level glamour. Using all Pat McGrath Labs on the models, the makeup M.O. was otherworldly glass skin, unexpected yellow blush, and pencil-thin brows. Chef’s kiss.
Jennifer Lopez’s Freshly Cut Bob
Lopez styled her brand new shoulder-length bob ahead of Schiaparelli’s Haute Couture show. Face-framing tendrils and gritty texture made the classic cut feel utterly high-fashion.
Roses & Ribbons At Giambattista Valli
At the Giambattista Valli Couture show, models wore their hair in various ribbon-wrapped styles. The addition of large white roses made their elegant hairstyles feel all the more romantic.
Mod Eyeliner At Georges Hobeika
From the voluminous hair to the eye-catching eyeliner, the Georges Hobeika Haute Couture show was defined by its strong references to the 1960s.
Hunter Schafer’s Sleek, Structural Bun
Dressed in a structured Schiaparelli ensemble that played up her curves, the Euphoria actor styled her blonde hair in a similar manner. Her artsy slicked-back bun was absolute perfection.
Zendaya’s “Cherry Mocha” Lip Color
Still sporting her freshly chopped micro bangs, the Dune actor matched her deep burgundy lipstick to her Fendi dress for a monochromatic “cherry mocha” look.
Oversize Bows At Chanel
In line with the overtly girly ribbon craze that’s trending across categories, Chanel debuted oversize bows alongside their frothy, feminine creations.
Ethereal Aqua Eyes At Elie Saab
The Elie Saab Haute Couture show featured ethereal, cool-toned eyes with subtle shimmer — a nod to the aqua blue color trend currently taking over.
Kacey Musgraves’ ’60s Beehive
Embracing the near-cartoonish beehive often associated with the 1960s, Musgraves finished off the vintage-inspired look with a fabric headband for Schiaparelli.
