This week on Instagram we saw many images that captured transformations. Yes, we’re talking about very literal changes like Jared Leto’s dramatic haircut and surprising new platinum dye job, Karen Elson’s pale blond selfie, as well as the remarkable transformations that occurred backstage at fashion shows. Pat McGrath posted a shot of the look at Dolce & Gabbana, with fresh glowing skin and classic siren cat eye makeup. There were more subtle shifts at play, too. Mary Helen Bowers adjusted our attitude about the brutal winter with her inspiring Ballet Beautiful leap in front of piles of accumulated ice and snow: We can jump for joy that spring is around the corner. And Lily Donaldson shared the split second before transforming back into her natural self. She snapped a photo of her body submerged in the bath—dramatic fashion show makeup by Lucia Pieroni still perfectly in place—just before dunking and rinsing the artful look away. Christy Turlington Burnsand Josephine Skriver were spotted mid-workout—counteracting their hard work with huge smiles. Click through to see our other best beauty moments from the week.
