To anyone who kept a close eye on any of the four Fashion Weeks we've just witnessed, it would have been pretty apparent that there were three beautiful models in particular who were repeatedly stealing the show. While Kate Moss caused a media storm by taking to the runway once more, it was Brit Cara Delevingne, American Karlie Kloss and Australian Catherine McNeil who had the most attention, considering they starred in most of the shows. From Cara's pretty fringe and pastel colours at Emilio Pucci in Milan, to Catherine's sexy spin for Nina Ricci in Paris and Karlie's dramatic turns in New York, there wasn't a place where these girls weren't the stars of the show. Here, we've pulled together all of their runway appearances — click through to see who they walked for and where!
During Fashion Month, celebrities bring their A-games when it comes to sitting front row. But it's not just their dressed-to-the-nines ensembles that capture attention; their hair and makeup looks are equally as posh. Over the past few weeks, we've seen stars such as Jessica Chastain, Zoe Saldana, and Drew Barrymore lining the front rows at fashion shows in New York, London, Milan, and Paris. And now, we're taking a look back at the top 50 celebrity beauty styles.
At London fashion week, the hair and makeup sent down the runway is typically much different than that featured at New York fashion week. Although the cities are only separated by the Atlantic, British designers opt for more inventive makeup shades and intricate hair designs. See what beautiful (and sometimes bizarre) things the runways had to offer from London fashion week Fall 2013.

From New York to London, Olivia Palermo has already showcased a vast array of chic ensembles over the Autumn/Winter 2013 Fashion Week season (and we haven't even hit Milan or Paris yet!). Whether she's sitting front row or chatting with designers backstage, the trendsetter has donned everything from mixed-print pairings to sleek suits and sophisticated outerwear, all finished with her signature eclectic polish — and a heavy dose of accessories. Per usual, she supplies a lesson on how to mix downtown and uptown style with ease (even if attending Fashion Week isn't in your immediate plans). Click through for the latest Olivia Palermo look book: Fashion Week edition.
Just like at New York fashion week, celebrities flocked to London fashion week to line the front row and take in the collections. Whether they were front-row staples at their favourite label's show or a designer's muse du jour, their presence was always noted. Flip through to see some of the familiar faces that have been spotted in the front row and beyond.

If Nars products are being used in any fashion week show, there's a good chance the skin will be radiant, luminescent and glossy. It really is no wonder Francois Nars created the Nars Skin range, a skincare line dedicated to lightening and brightening. But skin preparation aside, we have been staring longingly at Erdem's 2013 Autumn Winter London fashion week show and wondering, how do those modules look so damn fresh?
"There’s a touch of Wednesday Addams about her," makeup artist Hannah Murray told Style.com. "The collection is quite dark, so the girl we’re creating is a little ghostly." And by ghostly she also means "moonlit", which is exactly the shade of midnight-walk-on-the-beach we're craving.
To achieve the look, the team backstage used a highlighter called Nars Multiple in Luxor ($64), available in store at Mecca Cosmetica. Apply like you would any magic illuminating product — to all the high points of your face. Oh, and dab a touch on your cupids bow for an outstanding pout.
Roksanda Ilincic was in a pretty-in-pink state of mind for Fall 2013, but don't expect overtly feminine wares from the designer known for her modern, streamlined silhouettes. Utilizing a mix of textured wool, PVC, and fur, Ilincic paired glossy, full skirts with cropped sweaters, long overcoats with midi skirts, and fuzzy caplets with streamlined sheaths. Meanwhile, splashes of bright green, black, and chocolate brown tempered the designer's pink story. Also of note were the shoes: tonal striped lace-up booties completed Ilincic's whimsically modern Fall lineup. Just click through to see the most stunning looks from the runway.
Alexa Chung, Kate Bosworth, and Olivia Palermo are just a few of the fashionable celebrities who've made their way over to London Town for the latest round of Fashion Week festivities. After attending the opening of LA's first-ever Topshop store, Kate Bosworth showed her support again at the Topshop Unique show in a textural look of fur and sequins. Over at Mulberry, Alexa Chung delivered another one of her signature menswear-inspired ensembles, while Olivia showcased her styling prowess in three different prints.

There must be something in the water RE ripped jeans. Clean-rip jeans, to be specific. Yesterday we were smitten enough with Ksubi's single tear blue jeans to include them in our Essential Wardrobe edit, and blow me down if we didn't see a near identical pair on the killer legs of British model/actress Gabriella Wilde today. Her inky strides may have looked like regular jeans on arrival at Burberry's London fashion week show, but she took her front row and — pop! Gabriella's one bare knee gave her otherwise put together look an air of unexpected nonchalance. Please note: this is not about an all-over distressed effect, it's one or two (max!) clean tears in a slim-fit jean, preferably on or near the knee. Not into DIYing yourself a pair? We found five that are ready to go now.
For Antonio Berardi's show at London fashion week today, Revlon global artistic director Gucci Westman personalised a mix of two different red lipsticks in order to achieve the most flattering shade for each model. "The focus of the look was the bright crimson lip with the rest of the features being very non-intentional and simplistic," she says. Gucci's known to mix shades backstage, and being the expert that she is — you'd never know each model is slightly different. Fancy experimenting at home? You'll need to get your hands on Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Kiss Me Coral ($21.95), and Revlon ColorStay Ultimate Suede Lipstick in Finale ($25.95). She also used the brand's Red Lip Liner, and the Super Lustrous Lipgloss in Shine City.
