3 Chic Wedding Beauty Ideas Straight From the Paris Runways

Paris Fashion Week isn't a place where you usually look for wearable hair and makeup. It's more a source of super-fancy, gawk-worthy stuff that only a model should ever attempt. That said, I think these three Spring 2013 runway looks could totally be interpreted by a style-savvy bride in a way that's so incredibly chic.

I know this makeup would be a *bit* much for most brides, but picture a slightly toned-down version--just using individual lashes instead of that big black strip would instantly make this wearable for real life (you could also do a bit less "smoke" at the corner). A bronze eye would look just stunning for a black-tie evening wedding with a bride in an ornate beaded gown (see more photos in Megan's post about the show's makeup).

I'm so into the idea of individual pearls in a bride's hair (see an example here), and the charming little baubles Chanel models wore are another way to use this idea. Plus, I love this more elongated bun shape, which we also saw at Valentino -- something a little more interesting and of-the-moment than your standard ballerina bun. Wouldn't this bun look sweet with a short wedding dress, or a more casual summery one?

This is a beautiful idea for someone who wants to do something slightly daring/memorable but keep it completely classy. I especially love how the silver and gold looks against this model's dark skin, while it's also enchanting in a much more subtle way against a lighter complexion. I envision this eye with a modern and sleek satin or silk gown.

What do you think of these three wedding beauty ideas from the Paris runways?

    Our favorite platinum blondes of all time

    When Madonna posted an image of herself wearing a full on Game of Thrones Khaleesi costume on Instagram last week we weren’t exactly surprised—this is the woman who rolled into the Grammy Awards wearing a tuxedo and a grill earlier this winter, so why not celebrate the Jewish holiday of Purim with a leather corset and a pair of tiny dragons? Still, we were hypnotized by her white-blonde, braided Daenerys Targaryen hair. Functioning as a bleached out cultural weather vane of sorts, it tapped into multiple obsessions at once—the return of "Game of Thrones" to HBO, spring’s new extreme hair lengths and, most notably, fashion’s current platinum mania. Our own love of ice-blonde hair—which transforms any look from everyday to extraordinary—has been well documented of late, but last night’s Game of Thrones premiere sent our platinum fever into overdrive. In celebration of fashion’s favorite hair color, a look at the best platinum moments in history.
