We told you earlier this season that we were missing the weird runway beauty looks that usually shock and inspire us, and - thankfully - the makeup gods have finally stepped in and given us reprieve, by way of another collaboration between untouchable, MUA goddess Pat McGrath and John Galliano for Maison Margiela.  The pairing is ripe for innovation and today's catwalk show did not disappoint.  


McGrath created an optical illusion on the lips of the models by leaving a curved gap down the centre of the lip, giving the appearance of two separate "profile" angle lips on either corner of the mouth.  Have a look at her Instagram videos and see what we mean for yourself:



Ultimately, the look was equal parts ethereal and a little bit grotesque - but in the best, most Margiela way possible, as always.


Coupled with the glossy, mullet-like hair that has become a Margiela staple as of late, and, yes, those pillow clutches (see below), there were surely a number of talking points that came out of today's Spring 2018 show.
