From creatures on the catwalk to gold-headed handbags, this season was made for social media.

Viral moments are fashion’s most coveted currency (after, you know, actual currency). By now, designers understand that most of us consume fashion week content from our social media feeds, and that in order to cut through the digital clutter, you have to give the people something to talk about. And for Spring 2022 couture week, the conversation went in many different directions — from Chanel’s equine model to Schiaparelli’s gold-headed handbag and Viktor & Rolf’s Nosferatu-inspired wear.

Across all collections, this season’s haute couture found itself at the intersection of levity and austerity with a hint of futurism. See for yourself with our roundup of the most viral runway moments of couture week 2022.

Ring in the Year of the Tiger with a new look.

Lunar New Year is just around the corner. Whether you’re celebrating with family, friends or roommates, it’s tradition to wear something new to signify a fresh start for the new year. This coming year is the Year of Tiger, which symbolizes strength, bravery and loyalty. In particular, if this is your “birth sign year” (people born in 2010, 1998, 1986, etc.), wearing red (specifically red underwear) could shield you from bad luck.

Although many fashion labels have come out with special collections in celebration of the Lunar New Year, many have noted the holiday’s commercialization by Western brands. With the increasing buying power and visibility of the Asian population, in North America or abroad, its impossible to ignore the tremendous talent from this group of people

Designed by Maria Grazia Chiuri, the collection is a love letter to the atelier.

Dior wants you to rethink the possibilities of embroidery. For the fashion house’s Spring/Summer 2022 couture collection, Maria Grazia Chiuri, creative director of Dior’s women’s collections, paid tribute to the atelier. In the garden of the Musée Rodin in Paris, embroidery was not “merely a decorative detail” but an emblem of the craftsmanship of haute couture.

A signature of the collection, embroidered tights can be seen under a grisaille-bedecked grey suit, evening dresses and draped leotards. Elsewhere, an embroidered fishnet vest over a long silk crepe skirt; a jacket set embroidered with a paving of sand-colored ‘Nacrolac’ patterns; an Erening dress in ecru silk tulle embroidered with ‘vermicelli’ diamond shapes of cream satin tubes and tassels of fine pearls — you get the picture.

Tessa Thompson, who is currently filming Creed III with Michael B. Jordan and will soon reprise her role as Valkyrie in this year’s Thor: Love and Thunder, has just been named the new face of Giorgio Armani Beauty. Look for her to rep both the Luminous Silk Foundation, which comes in 40 shades, and Lip Power, the brand’s longwear, satin-finish lipstick. Since the former is a mainstay in many pros’ makeups kits, Tessa Thompson says her new role feels like a full circle moment. “When I first started as an actor, I would do my
