To the tune of George Michael’s “Freedom! ’90,” Carla Bruni, Claudia Schiffer, Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford and Helena Christensen closed the Versace show in Milan, statuesque in sparkling gold dresses. The return of the 1990s supermodels spread like wildfire through Instagram.

On the 20th anniversary of her brother’s death, Donatella, standing arm in arm with her muses, paid tribute to the groundbreaking work of the late Gianni Versace. Featuring prints and designs he created, the show was alive with the spirit of Gianni’s most influential decade and reaffirmed the trend we’ve seen throughout the season: the ’90s are back in a major way.

From brown lipliner to sleek blowouts, see how the decade’s glamazon beauty permeated Fashion Month. Plus, shop these products to create your own original super look.

At Byrdie, we’re obsessed with all things beauty, inside and out. We’re self-described product junkies, and we’re always testing out the latest stuff to see what actually works. Take note: We have a nose for gimmicks. Keep an eye out for our guest posts, where our editors will share everything from what’s worth buying to celeb looks, step-by-step tutorials and more.

As beauty editors, we’re bombarded with new products (we know—it’s a tough life). We’re always giddy to try them, but as autumn approaches, we’re finding ourselves reaching for a few of the same creams and foundations that we used this time last year. They’re our fallbacks because we know they work. In order for a newcomer to make it into our daily rotation, it has to be good. We’re talking how-did-we-ever-live-without-this good. So in the spirit of replenishing our beauty bags for fall, we’ve sought out the latest launches that we can’t stop talking about. From hydrating face creams to stay-put foundations, these essentials will take you through autumn, winter and beyond. Find out our new favorites—plus a few old ones too good to let go of.

Creating a Perfect Canvas with Guerlain at Eckhaus Latta | Backstage Beauty

There’s something about a blank piece of paper that begs to be scribbled on. Our instincts can’t help but want to impose our inner impulses on empty space. Even in stick-figure form, art expresses our fundamental humanity.

New York label Eckhaus Latta (new to Nordstrom) understands the enduring links between fashion and art, and play and personhood. Mike Eckhaus and Zoe Latta studied sculpture and textiles in art school before launching their still-young line, and the duo remain immersed in New York’s art community—pursuing fashion as a truly creative endeavor.

For Eckhaus Latta‘s fall presentation, Guerlain makeup artists kept the models’ skin bare, yet perfected with makeup. Once a flawless surface is achieved, however, it’s near impossible not to want to play with a bit of color. Quite literally, then, makeup artists added paint to the models’ faces with their fingers. This splatter art was a perfect tribute to the colorful, optimistic and innocence-imbued collection.

Some of the most advanced style in Milan this week came via the makeup and hair on the runway. While there were still shows that embraced the no-makeup makeup trend that has been prevalent in recent seasons, this is Italy, and glamour has rarely been barefaced on the Boot.

Dick Page’s Painted Ladies at Zadig & Voltaire | Backstage Beauty

Paris is usually the setting for Cecilia Bönström’s Zadig & Voltaire girl. Frankly—pun unabashedly intended—if you were situated in as appealing a locale as the French capital, why would you relocate?

For Fall 2017, however, Bönström decided to plop the Parisian in NYC. This was achieved through athletic silhouettes and primary hues interspersed among lots of black—a color appropriate for any metro.

Dick Page, Shiseido artistic director, countered with his specialty—luminous skin—and pretty pops of color on the eyes and lips. The effect was energetic and youthful, like a newcomer looking wide-eyed at the shiny Big Apple.

“This season’s collection was full of energetic, bright hues. To complement that, I created a makeup look featuring interventions of color—similar to the way you would accessorize clothes—to bring a cohesive believability to the vibrancy of each style,” said Page about the beautiful faces he created for the Zadig & Voltaire show
