Fashion month has come to an end and the Paris Fashion Week was nothing short of fantastic, seeing statement pieces and collections across the week. Super model Bella Hadid captured all eyes on the catwalk as the legendary model was able to embrace and reflect some of the favourite looks from the week. Aside from beautiful pieces with Versace and Off White, her statement fundamentally lays with the stunning look from Vivienne Westwood. This was undoubtedly one of the highlights of Paris Fashion week with the jaw dropping corseted gown for the finale of the SS20 Andreas Kronthaler for Vivienne Westwood show.
The gown was bridal inspired with a clean white colour designed to be a poufy cloud-like style with floral detail on the tight corset and sleeves complimenting her figure. It was worn with a matching hat, carried like an umbrella. The hair design worked perfectly, contrasting the modern style dress with a subtle 18th century hair with two rolls either side of her head and a simple pony. This look was fundamentally a career defining moment for the model.
“These were introduced to the catwalk mid-week receiving mixed reactions yet work surprisingly well”
One of the most talked about beauty looks however must be the wild eyebrows from Thierry Mulger. These were such a statement look and need recognition, they combine the iconic nineties thin eyebrows with the bushy eyebrows revived by Cara Delevigne in 2013. Models used all brow sizes which we are here for, putting two eyebrow styles on the same face, with a straight line underneath their brow with a bush brow created above. These were introduced to the catwalk mid-week receiving mixed reactions yet work surprisingly well. Giving a statement to the face creates a bold and ambitious beauty look contrasting their natural makeup look allowing the eyebrows to standout and create a statement look.
“Therefore, at Paris Fashion Week we got to see her embrace her own style away from her stereotype and the most aesthetic piece is what she wore to Browne’s show”
Maisie Williams, although she was not on the catwalk, made her statement on the front row of Browne’s show at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts. The reason she stands out is because we were able to see her own personal sense of style moving away from her iconic role as Arya Stark in Game of Thrones. In the show the characters style was tomboyish, her makeup sharpened her nose and covered her in dirt with a strap across her chest to hide her feminine development. Therefore, at Paris Fashion Week we got to see her embrace her own style away from her stereotype and the most aesthetic piece is what she wore to Browne’s show. The makeup she chose, inspired by Lucy Boynton who had previously been on a red carpet, was pink blush which gave her face definition as well as fluidity with the colour successfully contributing to her eyeshadow. Her eyebrows were well defined and bushy with a nude lip complimenting the subtle but elegant makeup look. She wore a tweed coat with sequin embellishment and a matching skirt. Being a favourite of the week, the aesthetic transition from her character to Williams embracing her individuality and looking simply stunning, really stood out from the rest.
These three looks represent both the best and favourite looks of Paris Fashion Week and really do embed what fashion week is all about, expressing individuality and making a statement.
