The ELLE Canada editors weigh in on some of the most showstopping looks from New York Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2015.

 1.  The slicked-back buns at Oscar de la Renta

Katherine Flemming, beauty and health editor: Sometimes a severe French twist feels very dated, but this expression of it was so elegant and refined.
Victoria DiPlacido, assistant beauty editor: Slicked-back, out-of-your-face hair has been owning the runways for two seasons now. It might be time to try this at home, folks.

2. The golden eyeshadow at Reem Acra

KH: Peachy-hued golden touches on eyelids and nails? Bring it, and bring it again.
VDP: For all those who think that sparkle should not be worn beyond the third grade: I draw your attention to this perfectly executed golden eyeshadow. Let’s get gilded.

3. The retro-looking updos at Marchesa

KH: The tucked-under bobs still have a hold on me, for a reason I can’t quite explain. Gorge.
VDP: Always was and always will be drawn to anything that remotely looks like it could be worn to a party at Gatsby’s place.

4. The glow-y goddesses at Michael Kors

Healthy skin carefree hair= pretty, but I’m hitting the snooze button.
VDP: Pretty, but not dazzling.
Ava Baccari, assistant fashion editor: The half-undone pony mixed with soft and glow-y skin is by far the most romantic look on the runway.

5. The Nordic Viking-inpsired double-winged liner at Anna Sui

KH: I don’t quite understand it, which is why I sort of love it. I’d skip the forehead sketches though.
VDP: The double-winged liner is great, and I love that it’s in a soft brown (PSA: eyeliner needn’t always be black!)
AB: I’m into the double-lined eye at Sui. You can always expect something playful from Pat McGrath for Anna, so if you want that offbeat look, you’ve got to play the game. But stick with a neutral lip.
