The fashion weeks might be over, but the Autumn/Winter shows of the past month have left a dent in the beauty world (and in my mind!) Let’s take a look back at the most extreme transformations the catwalk adopted.
Givenchy’s Pierced Beauties
Embellishments took over the runway at Givenchy show, but not on the designer’s pieces. Enlarged bejewelled septums, pearl drop cheek studs and oversized earrings hung on the model’s faces as a la FKA Twigs, baby hairs were gelled into cutesy swirls.
Comme des Garçons’ Webbed Hair
Dark, haunting, yet beautifully intricate, Comme des Garçons’ models donned web-like hair, placed in a veil-like manner, as if in mourning. Emphasising the beauty in grief, Julien d’ys’ styles blew me away.
Ammerman Schlösberg’s Bleeders
Escape to the ‘furry hospital’, where half dead girls drip blood from their eyes, bruised and ravaged. At the height of macabre, make-up artist Mark Carrasquillo succeeded in his mission to horrify.
Rick Owen’s Midas Models
Gold coated model’s faces throughout Rick Owen’s show, a sacred symbol of the Mayan civilisation. Far from regal, the crumbling metallic faces oozed decay rather than a glorified nation.
Clowning Around at Maison Margiela
Immerse yourself in theatrical world of Maison Margiela, a circus filled with hunched girls, deranged and doll-like. Despite the bright colours, lips looked swollen and eyes almost dead.
