The “au naturel” look dominated the runway in the Spring/Summer 2010 fashion shows. In the Erdem, Alexander Wang, Proenza Schouler, Calvin Klein, Philip Lim and Donna Karan shows there was a strong “nude” theme. The models sported fresh skin, neutral eyelids, bare cheeks and lightly balmed lips. Jean-Paul Gaultier, Versace and Chanel continued the natural trend but opted for a more polished overall feel.
