Runway Beauty: Gold + Silver Cat Eye at Chanel Fall 2014 Couture

At Chanel Fall 2014 Couture Show, models rocked spiky punk hairdos and minimal makeup that consisted of a winged eyeliner with a pop of gold and silver and nude lips. “It’s like modern sculpture, in modern materials, but with baroque elements,” Karl Lagerfeld said backstage. “This is the story of Le Corbusier going to Versailles.”
