Bold eyes were guests’ go-to during New York Fashion Week.
While the world kept watch on the beauty trend forecast on New York Fashion Week’s Spring/Summer 2023 runways, the stylish attendees proved that right now, it’s all about the statement eye.
Grammy Award-winning singer Doja Cat sported a series of bold eye makeup looks this season, accentuated by bleached eyebrows, while veteran model Coco Rocha painted swan-like shadow over her lids at Vogue World, the 130th-anniversary celebration of the American institution. Other show-goers were just as bold, with breakout singer Yungblud in heavily-lined eyes at the Tommy Hilfiger show, while model Quannah Chasinghorse donned her own iteration of green eyeliner.
See our roundup of the best graphic eye looks from New York Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2023’s attendees:
Doja Cat at Bronx & Bonco
Doja Cat has been making waves in the entertainment scene with her Grammy-winning music, but her influence is felt across the fashion and beauty spheres too. The “Woman” singer attended the Bronx & Banco show in a strappy powder blue dress and edgy accessories including a few septum statement-makers. To match her dress, she opted for geometric accents—light blue circles painted across her pencil-thin Greta Garbo eyebrows. She kept her eyelids a lot more toned down, save for strong cat-eye liner.
Yungblud at Tommy Hilfiger
Breakout music star Yungblud tied off his dyed-red tips with a heavy smudge of black around his eyes at the Tommy Hilfiger show. The English alternative rocker gave new life to the emo-era eyeliner with his fashion week look.
Adwoa Aboah at Fendi
In a nod to Y2K fashion, model and women’s advocate Adwoa Aboah bared her abs at Fendi, accentuating her easy boot-cut jeans and satin accessories with a thick reverse cat eye. The trend, which went viral on TikTok, glammed up her otherwise dressed-down look. She kept the rest of her makeup look natural to accentuate her bold black liner.
Coco Rocha at Vogue World
At Vogue World, a street fair-slash-fashion show, the high-fashion muse paired a sweep of navy blue eye shadow with a sculptural white dress reminiscent of painted ballerinas dancing in Swan Lake. Her look stood out in a sea of other celebrities who were in attendance including Sabrina Carpenter, Dove Cameron, and Laura Harrier.
Quannah Chasinghorse at the Coach After-Party
Activist-turned-model Quannah Chasinghorse attended the Coach after-party matching her forest green eyeliner to her beaded choker. The fourth-generation land protector, known for her Yidiiltoo face tattoos, got her big break on a Calvin Klein campaign and has since been paving the way for indigenous representation in fashion.
