Natural Curls, Loose Waves, & Red Lips Are Taking Over Milan Fashion Week
Go bold or go home.
Season after season, the fashion set looks forward to the Milan Fashion Week lineup for show-stopping runway collections filled with top-tier designs and memorable beauty moments that help bring the fashion houses’ inspirations to life. From Prada’s colorful feather lashes to Moschino’s punk-inspired extreme fauxhawks, must-see makeup and hair looks have been flooding this season’s runways. However, there’s also no shortage of beauty inspiration happening outside the shows, too. Gathering just as much attention as the models on the runways, the Milan Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2023 street style beauty looks are chock-full of inspiration.
In a sea of cameras, some MFW attendees are embracing their natural curls, while others are turning to hair accessories and hats to transform their everyday hairstyles into high fashion street style moments. As far as makeup goes, eye-catching blood red lips are the runaway makeup look, followed by simple no-makeup makeup.
Just like the week's runway trends, the city's sidewalks came to impress and inspire all those viewing – whether they’re at the shows or perusing the highlights online. Though the MFW F/W 23 season is wrapping up, it’s delivered countless images of inspiration to take in, add to your beauty mood board, and recreate.
