L’Oréal’s Star-Studded Show at Paris Fashion Week Did Not Disappoint

Andie McDowell! Eva Longoria! Duckie Thot!

The sun was shining as we boarded the L’Oréal boat with other VIP guests to cruise  down the Seine for another #PFW spectacle courtesy of the mega beauty brand. It’s a year since L’Oréal closed down the Champs-Elysees for an epic runway showcase like no other. Topping that event seemed unlikely but moving the show from land to water piqued our interest.

The 70 hair and makeup looks created by Val Garland and Stéphane Lancien were marched down the runway by the brand’s major faces and ambassadors: Elle Fanning, Eva Longoria, Liya Kebede, and Andie MacDowell. The opening look was modeled by Doutzen Kroes (our May 2018 cover model) who arrived by boat in what felt like a scene from a James Bond movie. Spectators surrounded the floating 60 metre runway on all sides with our VIP boat on one end and crowds gathered on the nearby riverbank and bridge.

As we got our sea legs back, the only question we had was this: What will they do next year?
