Anything is possible at Paris Couture Week

Last week, the select few brands with haute couture status, and those invited got to display some of their best work at Paris Haute Couture Week. There is nothing quite as spectacular as couture, as each piece takes hundreds of hours, and requires had sewing to be complete. To help bring the pieces to life, the beauty looks on the runway has to be out of the world, and last week was no exception.

Beauty took center stage at couture week, as each brand went all out on hair and makeup to highlight, and often add to the bizarreness of the pieces on the catwalk . Here are some of our favourite beauty looks from couture week:
