Brush Up on Historic Beauty Looks From Top Fashion Week Designers

Sep 3 2014 - 8:30pm

Fashion Week is largely about the clothes, which celebrities are sitting front row [1], and the many faces of Anna Wintour. Like all shows, however, no look is complete without the perfect hair and makeup. Every season, models strut the runway in the most daring and bold eyeshadows or awe-inspiring hair (remember the talked-about Chanel ponytail [2]?).

Since every designer has a different fashion aesthetic, their beauty looks differ, and we've showcased them all in one post. Flip through the most gorgeous looks from past seasons, and brace yourselves for more jaw-dropping beauty photos once Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week hits!
