"Beauty doesn’t have a definition, everyone is beautiful in their own way regardless of their weight, race, colour or shape."
L’Oreal Paris is known for its inclusivity. Despite causing controversy by dropping transgender face Munroe Bergdorf from a recent campaign, the beauty brand is still going strong with its other ambassadors. On Sunday, several famous faces took to a special beauty-based catwalk to celebrate L’Oreal’s vast make-up selection. Taking over the Champs Élysées for one of the most diverse catwalks Paris has ever seen, the celebrities wore stand-out tailored and printed designs from various French talents. There was 72-year-old Helen Mirren and 79-year-old Jane Fonda (in a major tiger print dress) alongside the likes of plus-size model Iskra Lawrence and fashion’s latest It faces Adwoa Aboah and Winnie Harlow. Cheryl also made her first appearance after giving birth to son Bear, wearing a stand-out two-toned lipstick look from L’Oreal’s Balmain collaboration, while the ‘world’s most beautiful girl’, Thylane Blondeau , appeared almost unrecognisable in a floral dress.

Every season of Fashion Week, there are some seriously strange looks debuted on the catwalk. In the past, face masks, belted bras, guns, and even duvets have been modelled on the runway – so it takes a lot to surprise us now. Yet, we continue to be shocked. Above, all the, erm, ‘what were they thinking’ moments from this season of London Fashion Week.
If you’re not yet aware of the name Halima Aden, you might want to start paying attention. Last night, she made headlines by making her catwalk debut in Kanye West’s Yeezy Season 5 fashion show. Clad in a floor length fur coat (fake we hope, but with Kanye who knows?), black pointed boots and her hijab, which shouldn’t be a big deal but is thanks to the fact that it’s still pretty rare to see a model sporting one at NYFW.
This past week, models hit the runways in Paris for Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2017. Powerhouse brands like Chanel, Dior, Vetements, and Giorgio Armani all debuted their collections, and once again, the style and beauty looks did not disappoint. But couture has never been known for drawing inside the lines, and this season was no exception. While it’s hard to narrow down the most out-there style and beauty looks, we gave it our best shot. Take a look.
SS17 catwalks From Chloe to Salvatore Ferragamo, numerous designers added a splash of yellow to their shows letting the world know to start stocking up on the shade.
The SS17 collections saw plenty of covetable accessories take to the catwalks. From deluxe phone cases to somewhat strange accessories, designs from the likes of Chanel, Louis Vuitton and Gucci are starting to hit stores. Saint Laurent’s unmissable logo earrings are the first to be up for grabs. Here’s the other stuff to keep your eyes on over the coming months. Trends we really hope we’re saying goodbye to in 2017 Bling on a budget: Jewellery that will make any outfit look haute
The size positive movement has been busy building a ‘fashion for every body’ campaign for quite some time, but things really seem to have gathered pace on the lead up to LFW. Ahead of London Fashion Week’s start later this afternoon, seven diverse models including plus size model, Iskra Lawrence, and disabled model, Kelly Knox, gathered to protest against the event’s obsession with size zero and calling for models of more shapes, races and sizes to be included in its runway shows. Ranging in size from a size 10 up to size 22, the women holding placards asking for #FashionForEveryBody congregated outside LFW’s, Brewer Street site.
Last year, Jessie Bloemendaal, 20, was just a normal teenager hanging out with her friends and posting selfies online, but fast forward a year and she’s walking the runway for some of the world’s biggest designers and being hailed as one of the breakout stars of NYFW. According to Vogue, it’s Instagram that Jessie can thank for her overnight success after winning a modelling competition with Micha Models run on the social networking site last year. The 20-year-old made her debut modelling haute couture for Valentino’s Spring 2016 collection, going on to walk for Maison Margiela, Iris van Herpen, and Fendi.
With just a few days before the doors are thrown open on this year’s London Fashion Week, the spotlight has once again turned to the size of the models strutting their stuff on the runway. The latest attempt to bring healthy body image to the forefront of LFW comes from the Women’s Equality Party (WEP). Leader of the WEP, Sophie Walker, explained to Yahoo that they are calling on British designers to show at least two sample sizes, one in a UK size 12 or above, as opposed to the size 6 that is currently the industry standard.
Earlier this year Ashley Graham made history by becoming the first plus-sized model to make the cover of Sports Illustrated. Last week Harnaam Kaur became the first woman to walk a major runway with a full beard after stepping onto the catwalk for jewellery designer, Marianna Haratunian, as part of a celebration to mark Royal Fashion Day.
Naturally, models of the moment Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid have been storming the runway’s this season. From Marc Jacobs to Versace the lucky pair have been able to wear some amazing outfits and here is a round up of our faves.
