From eyes to lips and skin, it's all typically rich and Winter-y — enough to have you greeting the cold season like an old friend. Click through to see the five Winter makeup trends to try now!
Paris Fashion Week kicked off last week, and stars, models and musicians have been flocking to the French runways ever since. Elizabeth Olsen and Naomi Watts teamed up at the Louis Vuitton show last night and watched as Kate Moss made her return to the runway. Renée Zellweger, Rebecca Hall and Zoe Saldana chatted during Miu Miu, sitting front row with January Jones, while Jessica Alba linked up with Nicole Richie earlier in the week. Take a look at all the celebrities at Paris Fashion Week as the fashion fun wraps up today.
Kate Moss donned a wig and walked the runway at the Louis Vuitton Fall 2013 fashion show in Paris last night. Fashionable celebrities Naomi Watts, Elizabeth Olsen and Jessica Chastain sat front row at the show to watch Kate make her return to her old stomping ground. Kate's husband, Jamie Hince, and daughter, Lila Grace, also made the trip over the Channel to watch the model mum work her stuff. The Louis Vuitton show wasn't the only big fashion news Kate was working on — Kate was named "fashion royalty" by The Sunday Times yesterday, the same day that she attended Carine Roitfeld's CR Fashion Book Issue 2 launch in the City of Light.
Kate's see-through Louis Vuitton dress was surprisingly less revealing than her recent nude photo shoot with Rihanna for V Magazine, which featured the singer and the model in alternating topless poses.
Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel were dressed to the nines for the Tom Ford runway show during London Fashion Week today. Both stars wore looks from the designer's collection and posed together before heading to their seats in the front row, where Justin shared a photo from the runway on his Instagram account, saying that the designer "killed it." Justin and Jessica caught a flight from LAX and arrived overseas this weekend to take in the Fall 2013 shows.
Justin and Tom Ford have been working together recently on a number of projects. Tom created the artwork for Justin's "Suit & Tie" single, and the two have teamed up to release a menswear collection that will accompany Justin's upcoming album, The 20/20 Experience.
There have been plenty of stars out at London Fashion Week but the Burberry show is always one that attracts some of the biggest names — and in numbers. Yesterday’s show brought together an eclectic group of US and UK style setters, including Rosie Huntington-Whiteley — a stand-out in a red blazer and pants ensemble — Olivia Palermo, Kate Beckinsale, Freida Pinto, Downton Abbey’s Michelle Dockery, and Rita Ora, who wore her support in the form of a T-shirt for best friend Cara Delevingne, a runway favourite. It wasn’t just about the ladies, though. Burberry model George Craig modelled a metallic trench while UK rapper Tinie Tempah wore a printed shirt.
During New York fashion week, the hair and makeup sent down the runway is often just as important as the clothing. While it might not be the first thing people look at, the skilled creations makeup artists and hairstylists devise is definitely worth a second look. From twisted ponytails to metallic eyes, get inspired by Fall 2013's most memorable beauty moments.
During the international Fashion Week season there’s no rest for the stylish! When New York Fashion Week wrapped up at the end of last week, busy stars jumped straight on a plane to take their front row seats at some of London’s most exciting shows. Home-grown style heroes sass & bide showcased their latest collection to a crowd that included Olivia Palermo and Les Misérables director Tom Hooper, while Mulberry’s butterfly-filled show was attended by the label’s muses, Alexa Chung and Lana Del Rey. Kate Bosworth also rubbed shoulders — literally — with One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson when they were seated next to each other at the Topshop Unique show. There have been plenty more stars at LFW so click through to see them all, and get the full runway reports from Fab and backstage beauty from Bella.

Marc Jacobs has been known to pull out all stops for his runway beauty, and with custom-cut wigs — and a huge nail polish surprise — he didn't disappoint for Fall 2013. Lead stylist Guido (for Redken) turned every model into a brunette, cutting each girl's hair into a punk pixie backstage. And makeup artist François Nars put his focus on a dark eye makeup look that featured just a touch of shine.
The look: A greasy smoky eye, brunette punk wigs, and red nails.
The inspiration: Rocker girls like Joan Jett and Marianne Faithfull.
Overheard backstage: Marc Jacobs is releasing a new nail polish line this year.
