Beauty at Paris Fashion Week was the best of both worlds. It embraced the ever-appealing lazy-girl aesthetic — see Rick Owens’ gravity-defying hair balls, Valentino’s slicked-down baby hair, and Dries van Noten’s drippy eyeliner. On the other hand, aspirational beauty was there too, like Anthony Vaccarello’s jeweled cat eyes and the vampy dark lips at Dior.
