The last week of January was filled with notable fashion and beauty moments. ICYMI—or in case you need to chat up a very plugged-in set—here are the week's hottest headlines. Take a skim, and voila! You're an in-the-know fashion pro. Now you just need to master your air kisses.
Paris was enveloped in a cloud of silk, taffeta, and top models as Paris Fashion Week showcased dreamy couture. But the most talked-about dress has to be the giant pink confection Lily-Rose Depp wore in Chanel's show. The taffeta gown had short sleeves, an impossibly voluminous skirt, and an oversize belt surrounding its waist.
The model was humbled to close the big show—and wear the big dress. She gushed on Instagram: "A dream Chanel haute couture bride! Can't thank you enough [Chanel and Karl Largerfeld] for this beautiful honor."
Lily-Rose wasn't the only "it" model to hit the City of Light this week. Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid walked together in not one, but two shows. After wearing long, intricatey detailed dresses at Givenchy—then making a "hot sandwich" with designer Riccardo Tisci at the after-party—the stunners both wore sparkling looks in the Alexandre Vauthier show.
But, it wasn't only Millennials who made their mark on the runways. 85-year-old model Carmen Dell'Orefice closed Guo Pei's show at Paris Fashion Week, wearing a fiery red gown that seemed plucked from the set of a fantasy film. (Foggy on Guo Pei? Just know he's the designer who made Rihanna's epic yellow gown for the Met Gala.) Meanwhile, iconoclastic brand Vetements also featured models of all ages in its show.
Stateside, America mourned the loss of its TV sweetheart, Mary Tyler Moore. The legend passed away at 80, causing several in the fashion industry (and beyond) to reflect on her legacy. Mary was known for empowering women, and she achieved that partially by the outfits she fought for her TV characters to wear. When she played Laura Petrie on the Dick Van Dyke Show, Mary insisted that Laura wear pants instead of dresses, even over the protest of sponsors. (Pants on women weren't common on television in 1961!)
"I think we broke new ground, and that was helped by my insistence on wearing...jeans and capri pants at the time," the actress once told NPR. "I've seen all the other actresses and they're always running the vacuum in these little flowered frocks with high heels on, and I don't do that. I don't know any of my friends who do that. So why don't we try to make this real?"
In beauty news, it's all about the lips. Kylie Jenner announced that she'll launch her Valentine's Day Collection on February 2, so expect your friends to be freaking out over new colors with names like "High Maintenance." Over at MAC, you can now stock up on pre-packaged lipsticks and liners. Or, what Kylie's fans may call "lip kits."
Finally, we can't let you go into the weekend without a dose of over-the-top inspiration. At the Dior Spring 2017 Haute Couture show, makeup artist Peter Philips gave the models a touch of stardust, surrounding their eyes with with delicate, golden stars. As our pal Emma Stone said in La La Land, "here's to the dreamers!"
We'll see you next week for more gowns, glamour, and gossip.
