NYFW Is Dripping With Flowers—in Models' Hair

In a sense, New York Fashion Week is the ultimate tease, albeit a captivating and addictive one. Not only do we gain highly anticipated peeks into the covetable closets of top fashion houses, but we're also introduced to the following season's must-have beauty trends—a rather backward sensation indeed. While we may never get used to seeing Kendall and Gigi draped in spring haute couture in the weeks leading up to fall, we're not immune to falling head over heels for their spring hair and makeup looks.

Technically speaking, we should wait at least six months (or even a full year per Mansur Gavriel's flower-strewn Fall/Winter 2019 runway) to imbibe, but when model after model wears their strands full of flora, well, patience takes a back seat. Or should we say row? Yep, strands dripping in florals is one of the most beautiful (and Instagrammable) trends taking over NYFW right now, and in all honesty, we're planning to reinterpret the trend as soon as possible this year. After all, a waterfall of flowers feels one part woodland fairy, one part renaissance romantic—melding perfectly with moody-hued layers and richly tinted lips and lids this season.
