Paris Fashion Week – Yves Saint Laurent

Paris Fashion Week – Yves Saint LaurentMakeup Director – Pat McGrath

The YSL show is always considered to be a beauty bellwether – whereever Pat McGrath decides to take the models’ wearing Stefano Pilati’s gorgeous clothes, we can all expect to be following in her incredible footsteps’ next year.

This season there was a change on the lip colour right before show time – I don’t know whether we’d call it Lipgate, but the original, gorgeous strong violet lip colour was decided to be a little overpowering and minutes before show time Pat had her team remove the violet lip and replace it with a gorgeous, glossy nude.  I love both but as always I think Pat made the right call. Can this woman do any wrong?
