Celebrities at Paris Fashion Week

The first three months of the year might be the busiest, most exciting stretch for a star. There’s an award show virtually every weekend and all sorts of major industry gatherings, but everything pales in comparison to the pièce de résistance: Paris Fashion Week. Looks always get turned up to 11 for that stretch of shows, especially considering so many of the A-list attendees work with top French designers in one official capacity or another — but this current crop of shows is yielding some of the year’s best front row moments. Celebrity beauty at Paris Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2024 is making a particularly big splash over in France right now, with hair and makeup choices reflective of the cool-weather garments coming down the runways as well as current trends and signature styles. The celebrations have only just begun, but so many of the biggest names have already made their mark on the city.

All in all, it seems like vampy, rock-inspired makeup has a pretty extreme grip on the celeb set, with plenty of dark, sultry lip colors spotted in the front row. Conversely, though, they’re often paired with prim, timeless hairstyles — it’s a stunning combination that’s sure to have a trickle down effect on the masses almost immediately.

Ahead, check out the best celeb beauty moments from PFW Fall/Winter 2024.

With an alluring, rusty shade of red through her curled bob and a milky-white manicure, Stone is fresh, airy, and full of life outside the Louis Vuitton show.

Erivo’s makeup game is always on another level, but her smoky eyes and vinyl-finish lipstick are too excellent to not highlight. Bonus: note the Elphaba-green nail polish on her left thumb.

In a celebrity world absolutely transfixed with bobs, Cruz’s might be the best of the bunch. It’s a Cleopatra-style bunt cut, with sunny caramel highlights to play off her prim yellow dress outside of Chanel.

Sophie Turner

Working an oxblood lip, one of the hottest colors of the moment, Turner expertly coordinates her makeup and her outfit at Louis Vuitton. The smoky root shadow toward her scalp makes her golden blonde hair pop, too.

Gemma Chan

An enviable mix of edgy and elegant, Chan’s dark, moody eye makeup is expertly balanced by her pink blush and demure lip color. She ties it all together beautifully with a deep manicure, too.

Zazie Beetz


It’s impossible to say what’s better about Beetz’s Paris Fashion Week look — her curly bob, her perfectly French micro bangs, or the beautiful matte makeup that plays up her natural features.

You could call Kardashian’s look at PFW the “Kim Classic,” with all her original beauty signatures present: smoky eyes, a nude lip, and one very full ponytail. Couple it with her plunging black lace gown, and she looks straight out of an early season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians — in the best way.

Salma Hayek

Posing with her husband, Kering CEO François-Henri Pinault, Hayek went for a quintessentially Parisienne style ahead of a runway show. Her red lip and mussed waves are such beloved French staples.

Chamberlain was barely recognizable in the front row at Vivienne Westwood, done up in Victorian doll-style makeup to fit the punk themes on the runway. Always up for aesthetic experiments, her look is so delightfully extreme.

Paris Jackson

It doesn’t get better than Jackson’s lush tangle of curls and waves, framing her face in the sultriest style at Stella McCartney. The bends in her hair show off the brilliant blonde highlights woven in adding tons of visual dimension.

Ashley Graham

Graham kept is classic and cool with a strong side-part and a waterfall and messy curls in Paris. With sleek brown sunnies covered up her eyes, her pale brown lip liner is the star of the show.

Emily Ratajkowski

A curly-haired EmRata sighting is a rare one, but it’s always exciting. Ducking out into the streets of Paris in between shows, her full, fluffy ringlets look especially structured thanks to her laser-precise center part.

It doesn’t get much more elegant than Park’s artfully-mussed updo at Giambattista Valli. The trailing bangs and face-framing wispy strands tie in beautifully with the botanicals on her bag, all complemented by her soft smoky eye makeup.

Meg Ryan

The Queen Of All Lobs is back with voluminous curls and a fresh set of blonde highlights at Loewe. Ryan’s trademark cut looks especially full, with her overlapping part adding some sultry bedhead texture.

Serena Williams

Williams brought all the glamour to the star-studded Off-White show, complete with her signature sporty staples. Her varsity-style jacket is brilliant paired with her long blonde curls, parted on the side for extra height. Pay special attention to her rosy pink blush, a springtime-fresh burst of color along her cheekbones.

Olivia Wilde

Always the very illustration of unbothered coolness, Wilde paired her completely see-through top with polished waves and intensely smoky eye makeup at the YSL show. She didn’t let her brown-lensed sunnies down for a moment, but all that smudgy eyeliner and eyeshadow still manages to stand out.

Zoë Kravitz

The micro-bangs are back! Looking like a modern Hepburn at YSL, Kravitz’s sleek ballerina bun gives way to the short, sharp-edged bangs she’s returned to on more than a few occasions.

She’s already K-Pop’s coolest blonde, but the way the icy-pink tones through Rosé’s ends match her watercolor-style blush? Too good for words. She too kept her opaque black glasses on through the runway show, but her eye makeup is surely just as alluring.

Jennifer Lawrence

While so many other stars are experimenting with edgier looks, Lawrence stays true to the simple, dewy makeup she loves for most industry events. Her lips seems to be shellacked with a glossy-finished lipstick while dark, voluminous lashes define her eyes.

Natalie Portman

Portman just looks French with this berry-toned lipstick and her elegantly twisted updo. It’s not too often that she goes for a bold lip color, but when she does, it’s always a treat for fans.

A pair of long, glossy braids trail down Rosalía’s shoulder’s at the the Dior show, made all the better by the delicate swirl of hair pasted to her forehead. It’s her signature look kicked up a few notches for the big fashion show.

Deep berry reds have proven time and time again to be a celebrity favorite this year, and Debicki’s Dior show look could easily keep the trend going straight into 2025. Against her luminous complexion, you can really admire all the pinks and reds in the shade.
