I had no intention of digging into the Couture fashion shows in Paris last week; spring and fall fashion weeks seem endless with so much coverage anymore, but I couldn’t help but admire these striking looks from Dior and Chanel.
Bright eye shadows and Swarovski crystals were studded across the eyes at Dior’s Spring/Summer show last year (remember it was called Techno Butterfly), and for the shows last week those sparkly crystals moved down to the lips. Again done by Pat McGrath the lips were bright and glittery, paired with slick pixie cuts, a pale eyelid, and bold stroke of liquid liner. I’m loving that “light Siam” fuschia-pink in the last image especially–it’s a color to watch, by the way.
If I could figure out a way to rock this look every day I would — Gothic Fairy I believe they are calling it. The dark, shimmery lids with mesh lashes look like tear-strewn, fluttery romantic-ness. If only, right? I love the glowy skin and lightly blushed cheeks as a subtle accompaniment.
These, just like the Techno Butterfly eyes, will be just as fun to see how it translates to the streets. Regardless though, inspiring and romantic is not a bad way to start the week.
