Fashion Reverie’s Favorite Wearable Looks from NYFW

Fashion show and red carpet looks tend to be gorgeous, but sometimes they can also be a bit over-the-top. While extravagant styles certainly turn heads and make for great photos, a lot of people have asked us who is really wearing those looks.  It’s true many styles are there simply for shock value, and while Fashion Reverie loves an innovative hairstyle or makeup application, sometimes simple is best.

Fashion Reverie has listed all our favorite and very wearable looks that will take you from fall to next spring and don’t require you dropping a ton of money on products … or to wake up 3 hours early to do your hair and makeup!

Natural Beauty

So many runways this Fashion Week were filled with models with clean natural skin.  Charlotte Tilbury, a brand all about natural beauty and their lead artist Kelechi was thrilled to simply enhance each model’s beauty for Mirror Palais’ show. “We wanted that timeless, effortless beauty.  Mirror Palais really speaks to the best version of yourself, whether you’re a guy or a girl it’s making you feel sexy, making you feel empowered and that’s something that’s really close to our DNA at Charlotte Tilbury,” explains Kelechi. 

“All of these models are gorgeous; how do we make them look absolutely incredible.  It’s playing on all of those natural colors that we see in their skin, really dusky hues and rose on lips with glossy eyes for that Bambi eye effect with a blush cheek.  So, as if you just woke up, but you woke up like Beyoncé.”  To get the glossy eye, Kelechi mixed Charlotte Tilbury’s Flawless Filter (aka Instagram Filter in a bottle) with a cream eyeshadow that has a touch of glitter for a subtle glow.  “We didn’t want it to look too shimmery, but more like you have a bit of an oily lid, which looks so beautiful [on the runway].”  Charlotte Tilbury is all about makeup you can do in the car. “We wanted it to be makeup that can be performed on the go.  Every single thing, you can do in seconds,” explains Kelechi of this easy natural look.

Knots and Modern Buns

Christian Siriano’s models wore Audrey Hepburn-inspired buns while walking the runway at Elizabeth Taylor’s townhouse. Unilever Lead Stylist Lacy Redway, wanted to create a modern bun with side-swept bangs to complement the elegance of the townhouse.  Redway utilized TRESemmé TRES TWO Extra Hold Hair Gel and Total Volume Hair Spray to sculpt the bangs and keep hair looking smooth.

Meanwhile, at Naeem Khan models sported twisty top knots, each a bit different to complement each girls’ look.  Aveda Lead Stylist Jon Reyman slicked each model’s hair and placed into tight twisted knots on the crown of their heads for an elevated but easy to recreate look when you really just want your hair away from your face.

Soft Waves

Modern renaissance waves graced the runway at Mirror Palais’s spring 2023 collection.  The look created by lead TRESemmé stylist Justine Marjan featured fluffy undone waves.  “These effortless waves were styled to enhance the overall romantic spirit of the complete look …” explains Marjan. However, Marjan and her team adapted the look for each model to enhance their hair’s natural texture. 

To get the look, Marjan starts by applying TRESemmé One Step Wave 5-in-1 Spray to damp hair and then blow drying the models’ hair.  Alternatively, for girls with straighter locks, Marjan and her team braided the hair into multiple loose braids and let it air dry. 

Have super straight hair that just won’t hold a wave?  Marjan recommends gently going over the braids with a flat iron and of course adding TRESemmé TWO Extra Hold Hair Spray to control flyaways and keep those waves looking stunning all day long.

Vivienne Tam also opted for soft waves and center parts.  Aveda Lead Stylist Jon Reyman create this cool girl, effortlessly lived-in look with just a touch of Aveda styling cream to add that bit of grit to the hair and then defused it with the Dyson Supersonic.  Reyman wanted some pieces to fall down around the face for a 90s style easy look that doesn’t require too much work.

Minimalistic Manis

Playing with the more natural makeup looks, this season lots of gorgeous yet simple manicures graced the catwalk.  However, minimal doesn’t necessarily mean boring.  One great example was at Alice + Olivia’s presentation where models wore rainbow tipped nude nails.

To get the look Lead Artist Gina Edwards used KISS Bare But Better press-on nails in Nude Drama on each model.  Then to jazz up the manicures she filed them into an almond shape and painted the tip of each nail a different color for an elegant, but playful manicure. 

Want to get a fun manicure even easier? Check out KISS’ collaboration with Alice + Olivia for their line of press-on nails for other looks that you can apply quickly and easily for a perfectly on-trend bare, yet playful, manicure straight out of the box!
