Runway beauty is always breathtaking, but sometimes the best inspiration comes from the chic attendees. Since today marks the start of New York Fashion Week, we’re celebrating by taking a look back at some of the most show-stopping beauty looks spotted in the front row at past shows.

Always years ahead of the trends, Mary Kate Olsen’s garnet upside-down smoky eye (and not much else) that she wore to Proenza Schouler’s F/W 10 show is definitely a look to copy today.
A bright matte lip can usually stand alone, but Allison Williams’s choice to pair it with pink cheeks and lush lashes was certainly a good one. Plus, her sleek, center-parted strands make us want to pack away our texture spray.

Of course nobody does Alexa Chung hair better than Alexa Chung. The effortless (re: how is it staying up?) bun that she wore to Mulberry’s S/S 13 show tops our must-try list.

Because one cat-eye is never enough, Rita Ora topped her classic black cat-eye with another layer of hot pink liner. Together with her model-off-duty hair, the look is totally bad-ass.

Slicked-back braids have never looked as chic as they did on Camilla Belle at Marchesa’s S/S 12 show. Her look, complete with red lips, bold brows, and rosy cheeks, is giving us Spanish flamenco dancer vibes, in the best way possible.

Shimmery seafoam eye shadow and two baby braids pulled back to each side? Check, check. Bella Thorne knows how to rock '90s-inspired beauty.
Emmy Rossum looked prim and proper at Monique Lhullier’s F/W 14 show, but with an unexpected orange lip. Clean skin, defined brows and a statement lip will never go out of style.
When you’ve got curls as gorgeous as Rihanna’s, you have to show them off. Even with the strong red lip, her sea of curls is really making the statement.
No front row beauty roundup would be complete without Olivia Palermo. Her mauve monochromatic makeup looked utterly ethereal at Chloe’s S/S 14 show. And have you ever seen fuller, healthier hair? Unreal.
