New York can be a tough city for beauty. After all, it was the birthplace of the moisturizer-only movement (see: Marc Jacobs, Spring 2015). This season didn’t stray far from the usual pared-down-and-pretty script; with the exception of Givenchy and Hood by Air, there weren’t a lot of mind-bending makeup and hair looks.
Still, there were more than a few winners in our books. The hair accessories at Rodarte are always something we look forward to seeing, and Odile Gilbert didn’t disappoint, placing metallic barrettes wherever she saw fit. (No eyebrow piercings or eyeliner crystals this season, unfortunately.) Braiding seems to show no signs of waning, as evidenced at shows like Proenza Schouler and Hervé Leger. There were a few red lips thrown in for good measure at DKNY, Oscar de La Renta, Zac Posen and Jason Wu. We even applaud the zero-makeup look at Alexander Wang for its raw bravado.
Inspired by TIFF (yes, it’s still going) and Marc Jacobs’ movie premiere-themed show last night, we’ve picked our nominees for the best of beauty at the Spring 2016 shows. The envelope please…
