Fashion Week Looks From Years Past That We Still Look To

Sep 8 2015 - 5:00pm

Even though Fashion Week is largely about the clothes, no look is complete without the perfect hair and makeup. Every season, starting in New York [1] and making their way to London [2], Milan [3], and Paris [4], models strut the runway in the most daring and bold eye shadows or awe-inspiring hair (remember the talked-about Chanel ponytail [5]?).

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 yourself for more jaw-dropping beauty photos once New York Fashion Week commences!
