Possibly one of the chicest beauty statements on the runway this season, sophisticated pearl embellishments are now having a maje moment in the industry. First seen at the Gucci Cruise 18 show in the form of understated hair beads as well as jazzed-up headgears, pearls are now a favourite among popular hair and makeup artists at fashion weeks. Even thoughtful delicate pearl details used as inner corner highlights at the Jonathan Simkhai Fall show this time were hard to miss. Talk about jewellery for the face.
