17-year-old Barbara appeared fresh-faced at the Milly by Michelle Smith spring 2011 fashion show during New York Fashion Week, save for a swipe of punchy coral lipstick that matched her olive complexion perfectly.

After catching the eye of Chanel’s Karl Lagerfeld (long may he rest in peace), Barbara walked in the fashion house’s Collection Croiserie 2011-2012 show at Hotel du Cap in Cap d’Antibes in France, and sported a relaxed up-do and barely-there makeup.

Barbara knew all the moves to pull at her first Victoria’s Secret fashion show, including the signature air kiss and pout. The makeup artists who work the iconic fashion show don’t tend to deviate too far from the brand’s classic bouffant blow-outs and sultry smoky eye look.

She certainly turned on the wow-factor for her first Golden Globes in 2013, with the model opting for a deep side parting and undulating waves in the hair department. A blended-out navy smoky eye added a point of interest, and peach lipstick warmed things up a little.

Red hot! Barbara ditched her honeyed locks for a rich copper hue at the 67th annual Cannes Film Festival in 2014. She wasn’t often spotted with poker-straight tresses, but pulls this off with ease. We’re hardly surprised…

This futuristic beauty look was a world away from what she opted for at Cannes the year before. Denim blue nails and graphic winged liner coupled with a slicked back ‘do transported Barbara to another galaxy entirely.

Appearing just as youthful as she did six years ago, and this time with a natural tan, Barbara glowed at The Daily Front Row’s 4th annual Fashion Media Awards in New York. Natural, perfected skin was offset by her ruby red lips, and lashes were kept to a minimum. Fuss free, yes, but still impactful.

This mod-ish look was fitting given Barbara was in London for a Miu Miu party. A sky-high ponytail paired with glossy, candy pink lips and a negative space eye look proved to be a winning combination.

Few people can nail slicked back hair, and Barbara is certainly one of them. She attended the 2018 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue launch rocking this hairstyle and a glimmering taupe smoky eye, peachy pout and her signature brushed up brows.

Barbara gave her hair the chop ahead of this year’s Vanity Fair Oscar party, where she wore her new bob in a loose, tousled style. For makeup, a mattified base provided the perfect base for rose-coloured lips and a smattering of silver eyeshadow.
