We were looking over our notes from New York Fashion Week and couldn't help but notice the proliferation of furry-faced models. Back in September we saw more bearded mannequins than ever before, and the trend shows no sign of abating.
We're not just talking tastefully trimmed scruff, but full on chin carpets. And what happens on the catwalk eventually finds its way onto the streets.
Fortunately these were looks for Winter 2014, so we figure we'll be aloud to shave over the summer. Right?
Below, check out bearded beauties who walked the runway for Gilded Age, Mr Turk, N. Hoolywood, Michael Bastian, Billy Reid and more at New York Fashion Week.
