seems that designers are increasing
It seems that designers are increasingly loving the bare-faced, no-makeup-makeup look. And in Alexander McQueen's case, I can kind of see why: all the better to show off his stunning creations and more specifically, these amazing bejewelled headdresses the models wore at his fall '08 show at Paris Fashion Week. The spare, pale yet flawless skin becomes the perfect stage to let these Indian-inspired jewels shine. But at least the hair gets special treatment. I'm loving the hair too - piled and folded expertly atop the head, it almost becomes an extension of the ornate headpieces.
And granted, it's so far out from anything you'd wear in everyday life, but revelling in the fantasy is fun, isn't it?
