Saint Laurent has always been associated with glamour, a notion that was brought back at last week’s surprise couture show in Paris. The show offered a heavy dose of ‘80s glamour, utilizing more-is-more in terms of beauty. Strong slicked back strands, dark eye makeup, and crimson pouts called to mind the YSL of that decade and created an overall powerful look. Will this new style at Saint Laurent inspire the runways to rethink the natural girl vibe that has governed the scene for the last decade? I can’t say, but who doesn’t love a chance to play dress up.

As I mentioned last week, Fashion Week gave us guys with great texture and soft, less structured styles. This week the runway confirmed my observation: the men are taking notes from the ladies. Looking through the shows, plenty of boys are rocking ringlets. At Valentino and Saint Laurent, a majority of the models were rocking texture, from a tousled crop to a full head of curls. And the men at Prada were equally playful, pairing their youthful curls with their cartoony attire. Men deserve sexy tendrils too, so watch your wave mist ladies.

Screen Shot 2015-03-12 at 5.05.56 PMFringe isn’t just popular on clothes and accessories this season, I’ve spotted lots of brow-grazing strands across the foreheads of models on-and-off the runway. Fashion’s current interest with the ‘70s means bangs are definitely back. I saw lots of fringe at the European houses like Bottega Veneta, Céline, and Saint Laurent varying from punky to romantic. Stateside, Victoria Secret model Erin Heatheron just debuted a fresh cut on Instagram, along with a new blonde dye job just in time for spring. If you’re thinking of getting a new look, opt for a style like Erin’s soft, face-framing layers. You’ll ensure the grow-out phase won’t be a nightmare and you’ll be an instant cool chic.
