Fashion Week has officially begun in New York, which means we can start looking forward to a whole new slew of spring beauty trends—we’ve got our eye on you, Alexander Wang. Whether you’re a total Fashion Week nerd (guilty) or just in the mood to peruse some inspiring beauty looks, we’ve got you covered. Let’s take a walk down memory lane and revisit some of the most iconic (and jaw-dropping) beauty looks from Fashion Weeks past, shall we?

Why just crimp your hair when you can sculpt it Nefertiti-style, like on the runways of Dior’s S/S 09 show?
Putting flowers in your hair? So boring. Why not make flowers out of your hair instead? Chanel’s F/W 09 Haute Couture runway show proved that hair is all you need to create a masterpiece.
Before Chanel’s pom-pom ponytails, there were Thakoon’s yarn hair knots and smoky sunset eye shadow.
Hairstylist Orlando Pita teased models’ hair to the heavens at Oscar de la Renta’s S/S 12 runway show, while makeup artist Gucci Westman softened the look with ethereal, dewy makeup.
Fendi’s S/S 12 runway proves that oversized glasses can’t hide everything.
Peter Philips gave models like Miranda Kerr blinged-out brows for Chanel’s F/W 12 show—and the result was spectacular.
Who could forget Prabal Gurung’s blood-inspired manicure for the S/S 13 show? Manicurist Tracylee dotted models’ fingertips with oxblood nail polish to give off vampire vibes.
Runway beauty doesn’t always translate to real life. Case in point: Thom Browne’s Joker-reminiscent makeup from the S/S 14 runways.
There was nothing retro about Marc by Marc Jacobs’ S/S 13 beauty look—the bold, black brows and ashy lips added a gothic edge.
Before the fat, messy fishtail, there was chic cavewoman hair on the runways of Michael Kors’ S/S 14 collection.
And last—but definitely not least—comes Pat McGrath’s wondrous sequin masks, which she created for Givenchy’s S/S 14 collection. We’re not sure this look quite falls into the “makeup” category (facial accessory may be more accurate), but we’re including it because it’s so damn stunning.
