The first look down the runway at Ricardo Tisci’s revered FW09 haute couture collection presentation for Givenchy in Paris this week didn’t have them. Meanwhile, at Miu Miu, Miuccia Prada bleached model Mikaela “Mimmi” Söderström’s out for the brand’s FW09 ad campaign. And now, adding the ultimate no-brow fuel to the fire is Lady Gaga, who was recently photographed having shaved her pair off only to draw them back on Harlequin style. Not to mention, model Coco Rocha recently sported the non-existent eyebrow trend on the cover of Brazilian fashion rag Wish Report.
Whether bare or just toned down, brows across the board are thinning out for fall, letting the focus fall on another trend: kohl-lined eyes. But while this look may translate well to the runway, the stage or a high-fashion ad campaign, it’s not one I’d recommend trying at home.
