One easy beauty trend to take away: face lace / AP


The Paris couture shows may not be the stuff of our rather pedestrian existences but luckily there's one easy beauty trend to take away from them: face lace. That's right, lace on the face.

A simple, try-at-home way to get the atelier look, as seen at Christian Dior, Giambattista Valli and Jean Paul Gaultier, is simply to swathe your phizz in gauzy, feminine netting, of the type you might be more likely to see floating in an elegant spray from a hat belonging to the Queen. It's the last word in chic, and it might just be the final nail in the coffin for the dreaded fascinator too.
