At Oscar de la Renta and Prada, models were head-to-toe Gossip Girl with rosy cheeks and amusingly perfect coifs. At Marc Jacobs, hairstylist Palau revealed that the designer wanted "a look so controlled, it's almost kinky," while François Nars dusted the lower cheeks with enough Nars Cream Blush in Lokoum (a rosy coral shade) to have the girls channel "an 18th-century painting." For extra credit, those under the age of 30 might want to consider the ultrafeminine black-ribbon headbands that models sported at Valentino.
