This fall is all about headbands, hats and hair accessories, and it seems as if the trend will stay with us through spring, among other beauty key looks already seen in New York, London, and Milan.
Gareth Pugh's models looked like bizarre birds wearing feathered headpieces, Sonia Rykiel ironically played on French clichés with her updated disc 'berets,' and Marithé et François Girbaud didn't even bother about make-up and just covered their models' heads with bags, while Riccardo Tisci at Givenchy dressed his as if for the movie Coneheads.
Even if exaggerated, all these examples bear witness of the overwhelming headpiece trend as seen on the runways this season. After one month of fashion shows all over the world, it is safe to say that anything from gipsy-inspired headscarves to Alice bands and barrettes should be on the shopper's must-buy lists for spring.
Consequently, with all attention on beauty accessories, make-up remained all-natural in many cases, with designers often even 'muting' the lips and painting them nude.
Other beauty trends in Paris confirmed tendances spotted on previous catwalks, such as grey nails, bright lips, peachy eye shadow, and high buns. The latter is part of the returning Geisha look, as seen at Marc Jacobs, for example.
