The buzz around NYFW has palpably diminished. It was just a few years ago that everyone and their accountant brother knew that it was Fashion Week, now if you’re not in the industry – and even if you are – you couldn’t be blamed for not noticing. In fact, if you scroll Instagram you’ll likely notice that many industry insiders and influencers have skipped town all together – and it doesn’t help that the Oscars took place in the middle of NYFW this year (limiting how many S/S 2020 looks could appear on the red carpet).
Add to that, that many big name designers skipped out on NYFW altogether (Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger and Jeremy Scott just to name a few) and there’s no question that the future of fashion month has been put into question more than ever. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t some truly stunning beauty looks to inspire us! Missed them? No worries! Checkout the below for some of the standout looks.
First let’s start with Chromat (pictured above). Not only did they win showing a diverse group of models on the runway, but their hair elevated beauty inspo for the gym – which let’s face it is now everyday wear for many people. The show took place, fittingly, inside the Rise by We gym.
OK OK he showed in LA but I just had to mention him because…it’s Tom Ford! And his show cross paths with NYFW. You already know that those feather Tom Ford earrings will be an “it” accessory come next season, but they did not outshine his beauty look (which is probably the real moneymaker of his business, anyway). The smokey, dusty gold-red eyes the models sported popped in a sultry 60s way. All of the eye shades were from various Tom Ford Eye Color Quads.
Ulla Johnson proves that sometimes kitschy can win.
Tory Burch giving us some serious winter inspo with her spring collection.
It might not be a wearable trend, but the sculptural beauty look at Brock was stunning.
Brandon Maxwell also giving us some inspiration that we can translate now with models sporting sleek hair and ushanka-style hats.
