Given all the celebrity-filled events, runway presentations, and all-night brand parties, it’s hard to believe that Fashion Week already began days ago — but all the most hotly-anticipated moments are still to come. But even among all that excitement, something is a bit different this year, and it’s thanks to the overwhelming abundance of incredible A-list looks spotted around town already. This year, the celebrity beauty At New York Fashion Week Spring 2024 doesn’t follow any sort of script and there’s minimal trend-chasing — just several of the industries most stylish stars taking the opportunity to show off and experiment with creative hairstyles, glamorous makeup, and fun manicures.

The best looks of the week so far are happening beyond the front row, too. Many of the most exciting moments are happening on the sidewalks and at glittering parties thrown by brands and their celebrity muses. Already, fans are chattering about Jodie Turner-Smith’s streak of incredible short hairstyles (her extra-edgy mullet is next-level), Gigi Hadid’s cool-girl roots, and how Emily Ratajkowski brilliantly repurposed her signature summer makeup look for fall. While the fashion shows give a glimpse at what to expect come spring 2024, the stars are offering a first-hand look at what’s hot right now — feel free to take notes.

Union’s pulled-back ballerina bun is prim and ladylike on its own — combine that with her incredible smoky eyeshadow and shimmery black nails at the Ralph Lauren show, and you have one of the best overall looks of Fashion Week.

Blake Lively

Over at Michael Kors, Lively brought back her tight disco curls as the ideal match to her gold beaded jumpsuit. Even her nails got in on the fun, a just-contrasting-enough shade of deep bronze.

There are so many noteworthy elements in Lopez’s look from the Ralph Lauren presentation: her glistening highlights, the subtle purple eye makeup, her milky-white nails, and the fall-perfect matte lipstick to name but a few.

The people’s princess stepped out at the Who Decides War show in dressed-up versions of her everyday signatures. Her curly bob glossed to reflective perfection while the matte blush-glossy lips combination remains unmatched.

Amanda Seyfried

Keeping it classic and simple in a suit set with her brick-red lipstick the sole pop of color, Seyfried’s firmly within her wheelhouse.

Jodie Turner-Smith

All Fashion Week long, Turner-Smith’s been trading one cool-girl hairstyle for another. Even compared to her unreal Great Gatsby bob, though, this classic mullet, complete with short, spiky bangs, is one of her all-time best.

Mindy Kaling

Bewitching in head-to-toe black leather, it’s Kaling’s sharp flipped bob — styled by Marc Mena using True Botanicals products — that really makes her Ralph Lauren show look. She even off-sets some of the edge with a sweet candy-pink manicure.

Emma Roberts

Roberts’ cozy look at the Khaite show is practically a fall beauty checklist: matte lipstick, a baby-sized cat-eye wing, and frosted blonde hair color are all present and all stunning.

With her glossy twists pulled high into an extra-voluminous ponytail, Bailey shows off her sleek sophistication. Of course, it’s made even cooler by the vampy, dark-red lipstick and matching red-black ombré manicure.

Chopra Jonas is literally luminous in her jewel-covered dress at the Victoria’s Secret party, but it’s the reflective shine in her hair (and rose-toned lipstick, for that matter) that helps complete the halo effect — an angel indeed.

Lori Harvey

Consummate cool-girl Harvey is a master at combining the perfect hairstyles and outfits, a more complicated move than it may seem. For Victoria’s Secret, she left her shoulder-length hair down and flowing, pumped up by voluminous barrel curls and a sultry side-part.

Charlize Theron

Not long after debuting a bold, choppy mullet, Theron returned to her laid-back roots with a sleek updo accented by a curtain long long, curled side-bangs. Her bright pink blush is the most cheerful pop of color while her nude nails show off her jewelry at the Breitling event.

Skye loves a classic moment, and it doesn’t get sweeter than her Clueless-esque look at the Kate Spade show. With her long curls, glossy lips, and timeless French manicure, she’s like, totally flawless.
