It’s not just the ‘in our dreams’ clothes, the make-up and hair styles are pretty lust-worthy too, as well as a great way to get the beauty look when a couture clothing budget is still a few years away.
Here are some show-stopping moments from the S/S 19 Paris Haute Couture shows.
Eyeliner goes Haute at Dior
Punk’s tentacles are far-reaching, even to the exclusive world of couture. Creative and image director for Dior make-up, Peter Philips, chose “A dark and graphic messy look, with a pattern that blends a punk aesthetic with a dreamy pierrot feel.”
Hair goes Haute at Chanel
More references to British youth culture, this time via hairstylist Sam McKnight who fused Karl Lagerfeld’s 18th century haute hair inspiration with Bowie and 1980s club style. The result? A Blitz Kid bouffant for modern times.
Make-up artist Lucia Pica says: ” The silhouette is 18th century but the girl has a Bowiesque feeling to her, especially in the make-up.” So Lucia conjured up a rocking beauty look, with amped up eyes and rouged lips. Her tip, to scribble on eyeliner, then blend with a brush, is simple, but genius.
Art Deco at Armani Privé
Make-up artist Linda Cantello applied graphic strokes of red just under the eye, referencing the work of Art Deco illustrator Erté. Red can be challenging to wear around the eye, but set against black eyeliner, it can look brilliantly edgy.
Feather Lashes at Valentino
We’e big fans of a false lash but Pat McGrath’s feathered variety for Valentino took things to a whole new level.
Silvered Skin at Givenchy
Glitter goes couture with Pat McGrath’s demi-veils of liquid silver at Givenchy.
