Calvin Klein’s Spring 2018 runway, now under the creative genius Raf Simons, has delivered a bevy of contemporary looks in recent seasons, and tonight was no exception. While his architecturally sculpted skirts and multicolored, spray-painted, and sometimes screen-printed frocks captured the attention of many a showgoer, not to mention his all-American beauty statement—power brows are back!—one of the evening’s high points was the designer’s A-list front row. Among the flashing bulbs and It-girl laden crowd was Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o, who floated through the ranks with a lit-from-within glow.
The three-time Vogue cover girl was spotted tonight in New York City with her hair coiffed back into a low chignon, careful not to distract from her supernaturally high-beam skin. While the Mexican-Kenyan beauty has been known to take a daring beauty risk or two, tonight’s look offered a refreshingly pared-down approach to Fashion Week.
After all, who needs tangerine lipstick or a wash of aqua eyeshadow when you’ve got a clear facade, a bare décolleté, and a set of sculpted shoulders that shines bright under the spotlight? The bar has officially been raised on moisturizing for a dry fall season ahead.
