Beauty at Prada: The Swarovski Cat Eye

As anticipated, Miuccia Prada did not fail to turn heads with her showstopping pieces at Prada FW18. However, the real spotlight fell on her ability to capture women's liberty through bold and eccentric Swarovski studded cat eyes with a splash of neon eyeshadows. 

Prada FW18 was a show that fashion critics are still buzzing about. The looks featured technicolored digital prints, rubber boots alongside leg-covers, and layers consisting of tulle, workwear, and Prada's signature Pocono nylon. However, the makeup looks that Pat McGrath had created consisted of exaggerated cat eyes slashed along the lid in funky colors, all topped off with glistening Swarovski crystals. It’s sporty, but elegant in a showgirl kind of way,”  said McGrath backstage.

This electric gaze represented more to Miuccia Prada than just eccentricity; her collection focused on the liberty of women in a violent world. Why hide behind neutrals and shades when so many colors exist?
