Mar 8 2012 - 6:05am

Paris Fashion Week is over, but the shows will be influencing style all year. There was plenty of risk-taking eye makeup, a lot of slick hair, and all the dark lips you'd expect for Fall. See 30 of the most notable looks from the week, from Miu Miu and Givenchy to Kanye West [1]'s latest outing, and get a leg up on all your fashion-obsessed friends.


The women of Givenchy could have walked out of a silent film with their sepia-toned eye makeup and coffee-hued lipstick.

Isabel Marant

Isabel Marant sent out windblown natural beauties with a touch of bedhead and soft peach-pink accents on lips and cheeks.

Kanye West

Kanye West [2]'s models wore lots of smeared carbon black shadow that made it look as though they'd been out all night.

Jean Paul Gaultier

Jean Paul Gaultier came up with a creative way to showcase bright temporary hair color by giving his models unusual "roots."

Moon Young Hee

Peach lipstick and soft stripes of shadow made the look at Moon Young Hee.

Gareth Pugh

Gareth Pugh's models looked like they were returning from a workout while wearing neo-medieval headgear.

Manish Arora

Manish Arora brought a little extra whimsy to Paris with sea green eye shadow in his models' brows and cutout paper lashes.


Kenzo had one of the most memorable eye/lip combinations of the week: squared-off winged liner and hyper-bright fuchsia lipstick.


Lanvin's gorgeous winged liner gave models the look of heavy lids and bedroom eyes.


At Balmain, the look was natural and a little messy.

Christian Dior

The models at Dior looked soft and pretty with gold eye shadow and tucked-up hair.


The hair and makeup at Akris were smooth and polished, with a pop of color on eyes.

At Elie Saab, models wore their bangs thick and their makeup simple.


At Aganovich, the models looked like minimalist mimes.

Fatima Lopes

Fatima Lopes found a new use for fake lashes, gluing them underneath models' eyes.

Nina Ricci

Sexy was the byword at Nina Ricci, where freeflowing hair and messy red lips turned all the models into bombshells.

Costume National

Costume National went with wet-look hair and owl-wing smoky eyes.

Alexis Mabille

Alexis Mabille's models wore their hair contorted into fanciful braids.

Anthony Vaccarello sent out sexy models with sleek, side-parted hair and heavy smoky eyes.

Dries Van Noten

A pretty pop of tangerine made eyes the focal point at Dries Van Noten.

Guy Laroche

The look at Guy Laroche was classic and linear: a sharp side part, perfectly smooth hair, and neatly applied red lipstick.


Mugler's samurai-inspired hair was sleek and knotted, then accentuated with a monochrome hair fall.


Rochas punched up otherwise plain faces with dark plum lipstick.

Roland Mouret

Roland Mouret was low on drama with loose hair and subtle makeup.

Sonia Rykiel

Sonia Rykiel kept her models warm in fleece headbands, but gave the look an edge with wet-look waves and heavily lined eyes.

Yohji Yamamoto

Yohji Yamamoto's models wore a new take on the half up look and coordinated their royal blue extensions to their navy lip liner.

Yves Saint Laurent

At Yves Saint Laurent, all it took was simple, sleek hair and glossy crimson lip color.

Issey Miyake

Issey Miyake's unusual part was the only hint of flair in an otherwise soft and understated look.

Miu Miu

Miu Miu had one of the week's most unusual eye looks, with sculpted blue and white wings descending from the outer corners of eyes, and pailettes glued into the inner and outer corners.
