The 6 Biggest Beauty Trends To Emerge From The NYFW Runways


From an ’80s revival to extraterrestrial influences

If you’ve paid any attention to the New York Fashion Week runways the past couple of seasons, you would have noticed that beauty looks have become pretty scaled back. It's even felt... boring at times. A clean, fresh face and effortlessly wavy hair have become the go-to looks for designers, and while it's wonderful that natural beauty is being embraced on the runways, shouldn’t we have some fun? And by fun, we mean more than just a red lip or a deep side part. Beauty is about self-expression, after all, and lots of us have a lot going on to express.

Thankfully, this time around, things got weird on the runways. Below, check out the six of most standout trends we saw emerging from the shows so far this week. From a total ‘80s revival to a trip to outer space, we’re in for a wild ride this fall. But why not start exploring these looks now? The weirder, the better.

What began as a teen drama about a young girl-turned-private investigator digging into the mystery of her best friend's murder, has evolved into a universe filled with complex characters, twisting story lines, and a cult following more than happy to go along for the extended ride.

Winchester's Black students got jokes

"If everyone stayed exactly the same, life would be tedious and predictable... like the third season of a Netflix show." That's just one of the not-at-all-subtle winks to its network in the Dear White People Season 3 trailer.

Maybe just... keep scrolling instead

On Thursday, model Ireland Baldwin posted a photo of herself in just a thong with her butt exposed, posing on the balcony of her New York City hotel room. Instead of staying quiet and scrolling past it, like most family members would in this case, both her father Alec and uncle Billy Baldwin just had to post their thoughts on it.
