See the most memorable hair and makeup moments from the Fall 2023 shows.
London Fashion Week is often regarded as one of the more exciting weeks during fashion month because it’s a platform for emerging designers presenting fresh takes and creative ideas. This theme doesn’t end with the ready-to-wear on display; but rather, it’s further emphasized by the bold, inventive, whimsical beauty choices that typically accompany the runway looks.
The week started off with a bang as Simone Rocha presented models wearing a swoon-worthy look featuring with neatly tied ribbons placed delicately below models’ eyes to resemble crying (we’re calling them “bow tears”).
To follow, Emilia Wickstead brought back the strong Cara Delevingne-esque brow that reminded us all too well of 2016’s controversial commitment to the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow. However, the other half of Wickstead’s models sported a bald or bleached brow — a theme that continued with other collections, such as Susan Fang and Feben.
When it came to hair, bangs were the go-to statement on the majority of runways this season. Many were wispy and gelled to the forehead, creating a wet-look effect that played well on the runways (but might not exactly be practical IRL). For Simone Rocha, many models donned straight hair and exceptionally curled, voluminous bangs to match. The most exciting looks on Rocha’s runway, however, were intricatell braided designs expertly laid upon models’ heads.
