What a joy it was to see haute couture shows back on the IRL agenda for the Fall 2022 season. A parade of frothy sartorial confections felt like just the antidote we needed this side of the pandemic, with a whole host intrepid beauty looks to boot.
It seems hair and makeup teams relished the opportunity to flex their creativity once again, dreaming up a series of artistic looks to complement the otherworldly clothes sent down the runway. Here are some of GRAZIA‘s standout beauty moments from haute couture week.
Pastel blue eyeshadow and glossy, softly curled hair provided the perfect entrée into post-pandemic glamour courtesy of Armani Privé.
Elegant punks reigned supreme at the Chanel show, with braided faux-hawks and sharp inky eyeliner.
Models at Dior wore vivid blue eyeliner (yep, evidently blue is going to be big this year) that ran along the lower lashline and tapered out into an extended wing.
OTT sculptural hair art stole the show at Giambattista Valli, with towering bows, bouffants and feathers.
Iris Van Herpen
3D nail art was used to create the stunning effect of water droplets on fingernails at Iris Van Herpen.
Jean Paul Gaultier
We saw soaked, slicked strands at Jean Paul Gaultier, paired with intricate tattoo work across models’ faces.
