Three Trends at New York Fashion Week
Paris Fashion Week Sets the Trends for Spring 2013

Lets Get Beautiful: Teasing Topknots, Bold Brows, and Neon Nails

Posted on 23rd September 2012 | Fashion Trends

FashionTV takes a look at three beauty trends of this fashion season, where Kelly Osbourne, Kim Kardashian, and celebrity manicurist Deborah Lippmann are rocking what’s hot on the catwalk for Spring 2013!

Funky Topknots

Time to step away from the catwalk for a moment and check out what’s been happening on the streets over the past few fashion weeks, as statement hairstyles have been flinging around -- and FashionTV is loving the fun bun!

A playful way to pull back your hair on a windy Spring day is to bun it, and there’s lots of ideas this month. Kim Kardashian and Kelly Osbourne have been spotted around New York and London in recent fashion weeks sporting the sky high, super tight twisted topknots. While back on the runway, Joanna Mastroianni set the standards for exquisite twisted updos as she showcased her SS13 collection at New York Fashion Week, and simply bobby pins and hairspray are the way to make it happen! While moving over to London, textured topknots accessorised with ribbons, scarves, and flowers were storming both the catwalk and street style at London Fashion Week.


Bigger is better is the motto this fashion season as filled eyebrows and look-at-me lashes are all over the runway for SS13; and makeup artists are making them stronger and thicker than ever before! Just take a look at Marc Jacobs models at New York Fashion Week -- Nars Eyeshadows in Bali and Bengali shades have been stroked to Edie Sedgwick perfection on the models nude tone faces, enhancing their natural features.

Meanwhile, more statement, less “wearable” brows featured at Thakoon with super-arched, thick shadow was plastered on the models faces casting a look of severity to contrast the whimsical bird print dresses. And naturally born trendsetter Alexander Wang flip-reversed the big brow fad, bleaching away a select few of the blond models’ and sticking a platinum strip of white tape, horizontally between their forehead. So, ladies, listen up... don’t be shy. Bold brows are the number one accessory this Spring.

Nail Art Brights

Nail trends are featured heavily at fashion weeks as the seasons move forward and FashionTV has selected our favorite paint jobs this SS13 for you to marvel at and try at home! Away with the nudes, we want color, adventure, and statement to scream from our nails this coming Spring, so where better to check out what’s going on than heading straight to the catwalk for some nail-tastic inspiration!

Models nails match the PPQ psychedelic SS13 collection

FashionTV loves PPQ and their psychedelic nails. With all the nude nails floating around this fashion week, we got color happy when we saw some sophisti-psycho nail art pop up at PPQ’s showcase in London. While other striking nail moments came from MAC and their bloody nail tips at Prabal Gurung in New York, The Blonds thematic nails were more than dazzling with silver-encrusted designs and a strangely split pinky nail! But FashionTV’s favorite Spring look came from the super bright Gingham prints on stiletto nails for Kate Spade, created by celebrity manicurist Deborah Lippmann... the perfect accessory for a stylish day about town!
