Look Back: 12 of the Most Captivating Moments on the Givenchy Runway

Feb 22 2014 - 7:00am

The House of Givenchy was opened in 1952, with Audrey Hepburn in place as one of designer Hubert de Givenchy's original muses. While the brand still captures the chic, feminine moments of the midcentury ideal, today's collections have an edge. Models are frequently done up in overstated eye makeup with slick, slightly waved hair. Get ready for Paris Fashion Week by checking out some modern-day interpretations of the fashion house's forward-looking approach.

Spring 2007

A smattering of models wore metallic, rectangular-shaped designs to frame their eyes at the Spring 2007 show, as two-textured hair faded into the background.

Fall 2007 Couture

Designer Riccardo Tisci was inspired by futuristic Greek goddesses when creating the Fall 2007 couture lineup, where models wore subtle makeup and overdone fringe.

Spring 2009 Couture

With frothy fabrics and ultrasmoky eyes, the gothic and the romantic merged on the Spring 2009 couture runway.

Fall 2009

There may have been a vintage vibe, but models' low-slung chignons were given a crimped texture for a modern take on the retro coiffure.

Fall 2009 Couture

A Middle Eastern influence dominated the beauty looks on the Fall 2009 couture catwalk. Golden.

Spring 2010 Couture

Red lipstick is bold in and of itself, but adding heavily glittered, heavily smoked-out eye makeup into the mix created a whole other level of intensity.

Fall 2010

An unexpected pop of pink on the eyes played nicely with patent-leather red lipstick for Fall 2010.

Spring 2011

Hairstylists toyed around with textures for Spring 2011; note how this multifaceted style started out as a finger wave, moved into a slight crimp, and was finished off with two frizzy-ended pigtail braids.

Fall 2012

With mulberry-hued lipstick and richly bronzed eye makeup, things got dark with Givenchy's Fall 2012 beauty look.

Spring 2013

Chaste designs melded with '60s-era Givenchy silhouettes to make way for a minimalistic hair and makeup look at the fashion house's Spring 2013 show.

Fall 2013

This girl is on fire! From a red skull cap to rouge-rimmed eyes, the Fall 2013 runway look was blazing.

Spring 2014

The makeup look was also a work of art on the Spring 2014 runway. The jewel masks were encrusted with Swarovski crystals.

Fall 2014

The focus was on highlighting the cheekbones and eyes, giving the face a natural bronzed look.
