Romantic to Retro: The hottest looks from Paris

Over the past week, fashionistas have flocked to the French capital for Paris Haute Couture. The shows, renowned for their high-octane fashion, have had designers such as Dior, Versace, and Jean Paul Gaultier reveal next season's trends. We capture the hottest of the runway looks.

Giorgio Armani chose iridescent smoky eyes, balanced by flawless skin and lips coated with a slick of matte lipstick 

Ultra-feminine was Bouchra Jarrar’s key look. Hair was tied back and make-up was kept subtle with a touch of rosy blush on the cheeks. Christophe Josse also went au naturel – mascara was minimal and lips wore a delicate pink hue. A ballerina style up-do and sparkly headband finished the look 

Free-flowing waves and dramatic lashes defined Versace's show. Stephane Rolland's signature look comprised softly bronzed skin and smouldering eye make-up. Chanel revived retro hairnets and enhanced eyes with shimmering tones 

Giorgio Armani’s Privé models had an air of mystery about them as faces were masked with light tulle decorated with glitzy gems. Georges Chakra opted for statement cherry red lips whilst hair was neatly pulled back. Giambattista Valli’s look was fairy tale chic – models’ heads were covered by coloured veils adorned with butterflies 

Jean Paul Gaultier showcased a sultry, gothic look with a striking top hat. By contrast Elie Saab went for an effortless sun-kissed complexion, subtle eyes and dusky pink lips. Valentino created a romantic look with discreet make-up and a simple up-do 

Alexis Mabille made a bold statement with a gravity-defying up-do and prominent beauty spot. Neon lips and lashes defined Chanel, toned down by simple, sleek hair-dos 

Statement eyes and glossy lips completed Jean Paul Gaultier’s edgy, experimental haute couture look
