Best looks from the Spring-Summer 2014 runways so far.
WITH New York City and London’s fashion weeks finished, it’s time to take a breather midway through fashion month. Here’s a look at some of the best Spring-Summer 2014 beauty trends so far:
Where: Altuzarra, Prabal Gurung, Antonio Berardi
As part of a wider trend for a sort of 1950s avant-garde futurism, stylish strong lips added a major pop of colour, often playing off against equally bold eyebrows, but equally often not.
At Altuzarra, Tom Pecheux paired rich scarlet lips with white eyes: “The red lip gets an edgy feel against a white eye ... making it more cool,” he explained.
The heavy lip colours also looked fabulous with a pair of mirrored retro sunglasses, another Spring 2014 trend.
Where: Edun, Alexander Wang, Richard Chai
Bare-naked beauty looks abounded this season, with the top prize going to Pat McGrath’s work at Victoria Beckham, creating what she called “the ultimate nude”.
At MM6 Maison Margiela and Marc by Marc Jacobs, the bare skin was offset by simple blocks of an accent colour and nothing else, while at Diane von Furstenburg, models were equally low-key, except for a healthy glow, designed to look like the result of a summer off in the Hamptons.
A number of brands stuck with the nail art trend this season: Opening Ceremony teamed up with Estee Lauder for patterned nails in the cosmetics company’s classic colours, while the models at Kate Spade were each given a bespoke coloured French manicure to complement their outfit’s colours by nail supremo Deborah Lippmann.
Still, the overriding trend this season in London and NYC has been for simple one-colour nail polish, with no frills. – AFP Relaxnews
