Glowing skin

Where: Valentino

Youthful, vibrant skin is easy enough to achieve with a good foundation, and an even better illuminator. Apply a small, pea-sized amount over your nose, cheekbones, and chin to reflect the light.

Coloured eyeshadow

Where: Versace

Where: Embrace some colour this summer with shimmery eyeshadows which  can really make your eyes pop! Look for opposite shades on the colour-wheel for best results. Keep the rest of your makeup relatively toned-down, with just mascara and blush.

Bold lips

If you can only carry one item in your makeup bah this summer, make sure it’s a bold lipstick. It is the best way to update your look without looking OTT.

Natural brows

Where: Christian Dior

Put away those tweezers and stop threading your eyebrows to achieve one of the biggest makeup trends at Christian Dior, the natural brow. Simply use some clear gel to keep them all in place!

Rosy cheeks

Where: Schiaparelli

To get that natural glow, apply blush to the apples of your cheeks and build-up the colour. If your skin is on the pale side, use pink-based shades to bring out those softer tones. Peach or nude colours work best on darker skin tones, and complement a summer tan.

Valentino went back to its roots in Rome where Valentino Garavani himself founded the couture label in 1960.

The one shoulder dresses which were inspired by Ancient Rome, equipped with golden wreaths and gladiator sandals.

Donatella Versace took the couture label to the next level by embracing the best parts of the 1970s – maxi dresses and platform heels. The colour palette remained true to Versace’s style in soft pastels and silhouettes.

Bouclé jackets

Where: Chanel

With a star-studded ensemble including Kristen Stewart, Stella Tennant, Lara Stone and Cara Delevingne, the casino quickly took it’s form in true Chanel style. The bouclé jacket has become an icon, ever since it was created by Coco Chanel herself in 1954. Karl Lagerfeld continues this traditional each year and puts his own quirky spin on an old classic.

Derek And Hansel For Valentino At PFW

So the rumours were true! Derek Zoolander and his nemesis Hansel took to the runway this week in true ‘blue steel’-style as the front row gasped.

The arch rivals sashayed their way down the catwalk during the Valentino show but it was a quick turn for the himbos, who were taking a small detour on their way to Rome to begin shooting Zoolander 2.

That didn’t mean there wasn’t enough time for the boys to mix it with fashion’s big guns, including Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour.
