Gold-plated finger waves. Technicolor eyelids. Hand-drawn brows and beauty marks. Yes, this is Galliano, and you'd be hard pressed to find another runway in Paris where macquillage is more front and center.

In a season where minimalism will likely come out on top, Galliano was an unabashed celebration of getting made up.
