London Fashion Week 2014: Obsessed or Hot Mess Beauty Edition!
London Fashion Week wrapped up today, but before we bid adieu to the bold prints and sportswear-style looks we’ve been seeing from the runways and front rows, we’re ready to reflect on some of the most noteworthy beauty looks rocked on some of the biggest celebs at your favorite shows.

First up is Brit “It Girl” Alexa Chung, who’s been no stranger to the front row this week. And to mix it up, Chung chose to tap into her inner schoolgirl, plaiting her hair into a pink-ribboned pair of pigtails for the Topshop Unique show on Sunday. Although this do is totally new for the star (she usually opts for loose hair and her signature blunt bangs), we’re totally digging it. Call it a schoolgirl crush, but Chung may be on to something here. What do you think? Could pigtails be making a comeback?
We also caught Drew Barrymore (who’s rocking a new, darker hue these days) at the Stella McCartney Green Collection reveal on Sunday. The star’s brunette locks pair well with her fresh-faced makeup look — a bold, glossy red lip, a hint of blush and a bare eye. Although we’d much prefer Barrymore with a touch of mascara to make her eyes pop, we think her minimal makeup works. Are you loving her mostly fresh-faced?
And finally, we have Rita Ora, who always keeps us guessing — but we couldn’t have predicted her unusual do at the Marchesa show. Ora wore a top knot in the center of her head, and then pulled the extra hair from the knot to the front to create faux bangs. The star Instagrammed the updo with the caption: “What you mean you can’t turn a knot into a fringe? @chrisappleton1 he can lol! #hometimeselfie.” We applaud the singer for trying something totally new, but paired with a smokey eye and a rich berry lip, we think the look is a little much. What do you think?
