The watchwords we heard over and over backstage to describe fall beauty were "warrior" and "tough." What did that translate to for beauty? At Jason Wu, that meant super-sleek ponytails and a graphic, emerald eye inspired by the Chinese army. At other shows there were contoured cheeks, defined brows, and severe hairstyles meant to emphasize the power and toughness of a woman with a mind of her own.
