Catwalk Confidential1 of 13
By Naomi Jaul
No, you might not be able to pull off these daring beauty looks at the office. Or even at happy hour. But there's no doubt that this crop of makeup, hair and nail trends from New York Fashion Week are spectacular to look at. From striped hair to anime-inspired eyeliner, here's what wowed us this season.
Blue Streak2 of 13
Forget shimmery skin: At Ohne Titel, all eyes were on the colorful brushstroke stripes painted on models' hair. The sci-fi style, created by Bumble & Bumble's Jimmy Paul with the brand's new Spray Chalk (available at the end of September), was stenciled onto tightly knotted buns for an architectural feel.
Clowning Around3 of 13
For his collection inspired by Elizabethan clowns, Thom Browne worked with MAC's Sil Bruinsma to create an over-the-top theatrical look. Voluminous beehives were sprayed with white hair powder and accompanied by chalky faces and smudged red lips. This year's Halloween costume, perhaps?
Earn Your Stripes4 of 13
Blush gone wrong or war paint? Neither! At Assembly, Revlon's global artistic director, Gucci Westman, smeared bright, angular lines on models' cheekbones. The result was a striking, sporty look that perfectly complemented the label's graphic designs.
Going Green5 of 13
The man responsible for many of Rihanna's daring looks—both onstage and off—wasn't about to debut a demure collection for his first NYFW presentation. Adam Selman's disco-inspired line was paired with bold retro makeup. Models' eyelids were caked in MAC's glittery shadow thanks to makeup artist Aaron de Mey's vision.
Wigging Out6 of 13
To match Carmen Marc Valvo's monochromatic collection, hairstylist Ted Gibson put models in platinum wigs dip-dyed in black. While we might not ask our hairstylist for this particular ombre look, we love the graduated bob with bangs.
Painted Beauty7 of 13
Delpozo's whimsical collection, inspired by 19th-century French artwork, was matched by painterly makeup created by Monica Marmo for MAC. Unexpected color pairings, like this icy blue-and-yellow eyeshadow combo, held their own against clothes defined by volume and romance.
Cat's Meow8 of 13
Kate Spade went mad for mod with a makeup look inspired by '60s siren Sophia Loren. Neil Scibelli for Jouer Cosmetics took the current cat-eye craze up a notch, creating a playful double cat-eye in black-and-white.
Bold & Beautiful9 of 13
Picture Marie Antoinette at a rock concert, and you've got the adventurous look at Nicole Miller’s Versailles-inspired show. Hairstylist Kevin Ryan created tousled halo braids—part romantic, part punk—with model Chloe Norgaard’s shocking green tresses.
Valley of the Dolls10 of 13
At Hache, catwalkers looked like high-fashion anime dolls thanks to makeup artist Val Garland, who artfully applied MAC eyeliner. Hairstylist Eugene Souleiman added to the fantastical look by working models' hair into backwards chignons.
Technicolor Dreams11 of 13
If you hadn't heard, Justin Bieber debuted a new haircut at Y-3's show. But even the famous singer couldn't distract from the intriguing look on the runway: heavily shadowed lids and braids festooned with multicolored feathers.
Nailed It12 of 13
Nail art? This is more like the nail's private showing at the Louvre. Manicures at Libertine echoed the label's use of colors and embellishments. Makeup artist Katie Jane Hughes painted nails with Butter London's lacquer, then used holographic foil, crystals and poms-poms to create 3-D texture.
I, Robot13 of 13
With crazy pink coifs and silver lipstick, the models at Betsey Johnson's show were made to look like out-of-this-world fembots. Though you might not expect robots to wear pearl necklaces and pretty tea dresses …
