22 Edgy Looks From Australia Fashion Week You Won't Want to Miss

Apr 11 2013 - 2:49pm

Every Fashion Week has a unique personality, and Australia can only be categorized as fearless. It is not rare to see full-on costume makeup on the Sydney catwalks. On the other hand, there are also edgy looks that push the envelope without being impossible to re-create at home. While the looks coming down the runway ranged from sweet to somewhat scary, we selected the top 22 anyone can try right now.

Christopher Esber

Are you daring enough to try a makeup look that's devoid of color? Something like this monotone matte palette seen at Christopher Esber is as minimalist as you can get.

The nails at Christopher Esber were also sleekly painted in a soft gray shade with a pop of purple underneath.

Roopa Pemmaraju

Yes, yellow is usually not a popular color for eye makeup, but the models at Roopa Pemmaraju pulled it off so nicely.


At Kahlo, the hair had double texture — slicked back in the front and blow-dried in back.


Gunmetal gray may seem like a Winter nail shade, but the metallic glint gave the manicures at Talulah a mirror-like feel.

Kate Sylvester

Whip out your hot-pink lipstick for Spring and pair the neon hue with pastel shades as seen at Kate Sylvester.

Lisa Ho

The two-toned lip continues to be a big trend on the Spring 2013 runways. At Lisa Ho, burgundy liner and red lipstick were the spotlight, and the geometric hairstyle only complemented the look.


Georgia May Jagger mastered the bohemian look on the Camilla runway with a chain headpiece and dip-dyed strands — a pairing that would work wonderfully for a music festival.


Add in a few colored lashes to your look for a new way to wear a pop of bright color this Spring, as seen at Raffles.


Red on your eyes might seem like a complicated trend to try, but draw on a little eyeliner on your lower lash line with matching lipstick to pull it off.


If you have an occasion to wear an elaborate headpiece, go floral like this arrangement seen on the Raffles runway. Not your cup of tea? Then the silver eye shadow is a must try.

Watson x Watson

Bubblegum-pink lipstick like this shade at Watson x Watson is one way to get your fill of brights this season.

Michael Lo Sordo

At Michael Lo Sordo, a turquoise triangle was added to each eye for a geometric element.

Manning Cartell

You can still wear your dark green polish from Winter; just add a metallic tip like this manicure from Manning Cartell.


Han provided one example of an unconventional way to wear white this Spring.

Bless'ed Are the Meek

Bold brows always seem to be on trend, but this look from Bless'ed Are the Meek is not for the faint of heart.


Play up your part with a tiny cornrow, which added unexpected excitement to the straight hair at Suboo.


The models at Suboo also rocked chromatic nails.

We Are Handsome

Who said bold eyes and bold lips don't mix? Don't be afraid to pair bright shades, like this colorful look from We Are Handsome.

Also at We Are Handsome, models wore colorful printed nail wraps.

Haryono Setiadi

This look from Haryono Setiadi may seem plain . . .

. . . but the addition of a fishtail braid in the back gave a new spin on the half-up hairstyle.
