There are just two problems. Firstly, our bank accounts are sadly nowhere near as full; and secondly, there’s only so many places you can feasibly wear a gold lamé Maticevski ballgown.
Fortunately, there have been some killer hair and beauty looks sent down the runway for us to swoon over instead. Even better? They’re totally wearable. Here are the 11 we’ll be trying this weekend.
1. Red lips
After seasons of obsessing over orange and pink shades, Rebecca Vallance has joined Taylor Swift in reminding us just why that red lip is such a classic.
Paired with glowing skin and just-brushed brows, it’s the best kind of striking. Add a tiny dust of highlighter to your cupid’s bow for extra pop.

Your standard ponytail? Gone, dead and buried — we're all about the glitter dipped updo as seen at the Swarovski show now. Practical? Maybe not, but so very sassy.

3. Natural brows
The thought of spending hours styling your hairy caterpillars into 'on fleek' Instagram brows fill you with horror? Us too, which is why we're all about these natural grown-out eyebrows at Yeojin Bae.

4. Plum lips
The fishing line we'll leave, but the plum lip and metallic eye combo seen as Zhivago is a winner.
