Summer wedding season is upon us, and for a bride-to-be in search of beauty inspiration, you can’t go wrong with the timeless-yet-on-trend look we spotted at the Pronovias’ bridal show this past weekend. In celebration of its fiftieth anniversary, the Spanish fashion house staged a runway spectacle at Barcelona’s famed Pabellón Italiano, which drew more than 2,000 guests, including the likes of Camila Alves and Bar Refaeli. This milestone also called for major models, and Pronovias enlisted a roster of noteworthy catwalkers such as Karolina Kurkova, Constance Jablonski, Ymre Stiekema, Samantha Gradoville, Pauline Hoarau, and more to stroll down the aisle—er, runway—in the label’s breathtaking designs. (The sixty-seven-person creative team took a well-deserved bow following Kurkova’s finale.)
Citing iconic sixties actresses like Audrey Hepburn, MAC artist Victor Alvarez kept faces mostly bare with a healthy bronze glow, and focused on creating drama with quintessential winged eyeliner and false lashes. Meanwhile, hairstylist Moncho Moreno swept the girls’ hair back into sleek, coiled buns wrapped in a single braid. This updated chignon provided a base for Pronovias’ specialty headpieces. More than fifty different accessory options were on hand backstage, and so—much like real brides—no two looks were identical. We were particularly drawn to the white flower crowns (à la Dolce & Gabbana Spring ’14) interspersed with delicate pearls, which provided a fresh alternative to more traditional veils.
Ultimately, your wedding is no time to experiment with out-there, edgy styles. Thus, Pronovias’ lesson in classically modern beauty deserves both admiration and imitation—hell, even we might be able to pull a Kate Middleton and achieve this look ourselves.

Red lipstick demonstrated its range at Rodarte’s book signing yesterday. Karolina Kurkova contrasted her fair skin and platinum blond strands with a matte crimson hue, while Francesca Vannucci complemented her olive complexion and cocoa-colored curls with an orangey tone. And whoever said redheads can’t pull off red lipstick obviously hasn’t seen catwalker Irina Kravchenko, who kept her makeup fresh and simple with a cherry-tinted gloss and matching earrings. No matter how you swipe it, this bold beauty classic is bound to flatter—and instantly upgrade your look.
Crimson and varying hues of moody burgundy were having a moment for multiple weeks in a row, but it appears that pink (specifically, fuchsia) is staging a comeback. In the past two days alone, Miranda Kerr, Kate Bosworth, and Karolina Kurkova all stepped out in the shade. Whether it was paired with a strapless, Swarovski Crystal-studded Fendi dress (as was the case with Bosworth) or a navy turtleneck à la Kurkova, everything’s coming up roses on the red carpet.
The deep side part has had many a catwalk moment the past few seasons (see Rochas and Rag & Bone, for starters), but at last night’s Vanity Fair party at the Tribeca Film Festival, model Karolina Kurkova opted instead for the classic center part. Paired with a nearly nude face and a glossy brownish lip that may have us running to the drugstore to pick up a tube of Revlon’s Raisin Rage (the moody brick always in our purse in the nineties), it was a red-carpet beauty moment à la Brenda Walsh. The best kind of throwback, don’t you think?
Believe it or not, Diana Ross—she of the disco-diva spider lashes, and full head of frizzy ringlets—did her own hair and makeup every time she performed! We repeat: there was no glam squad, according to her daughter, Tracee Ellis Ross. [Huff Po]

We’re always up for a supermodel d.i.y beauty tip and these two are no exception: apparently, Karolina Kurkova applies lemon juice directly to her face to boost radiance and exfoliate, while Miranda Kerr—who sent the blogosphere abuzz last year when she revealed that [one of] the secrets to her slender frame was eating a tablespoon of coconut oilevery day—sleeps with olive oil on the ends of her hair to seal any breakage.
