During these past few weeks of fashion month, cities like New York, London, Milan, and Paris have displayed a range of dynamic runway makeup trends including (but not limited to) the lime green graphic eyeliner seen at Anna Sui and the braided buns shown at Simone Rocha. But as most fashion insiders know, when it comes to this style-filled month, the fun really starts in the streets. Yes, the street style beauty moments at fashion week are just as worthy of your attention as the professional looks put together backstage.
This season in New York and London, street style was, well, non-existent. Influencers, editors, and buyers traded in their seats inside the venues for their couches in the name of social distancing. But once the festivities in Milan kicked off, Italian show-goers took to the streets in their usual minimalistic beauty looks. (Think: simple eye makeup with a strong brow.) As for hair, the more natural, the better seems to be the mantra in fair Italia.
And, now that fashion week is underway in Paris, you'll find that the makeup seen outside the shows is getting a tad bolder. French beauty is all about vibrant red lipstick, glowy skin, and the always-in-style sharp cat-eye. As for hair, you'll always spot a few sleek, head-turning looks outside the shows in France.
To help you plan your hair and makeup routines for spring, ahead, find the best street style looks seen in Milan and Paris during Fashion Month Fall/Winter 2021, all shot by photographer Darrel Hunter. And remember to keep coming back for more photos as the shows continue through March 9.
