Beards are hardly an innovation in men's fashion. We've seen many a whisker on runways before, and they ebb and flow each year just like eyebrows in the womenswear shows. But this season, beards were out in full force, some to an extreme degree. Vivienne Westwood frosted her models' faux-facial hair with snow and ice for an extra-rugged mountain-man look, while Paul Smith and Umit Benan pruned their models' chin hairs into rounded, shrublike clouds. There were exceptions to the bushiness, though: Some designers, like Hermès and Roberto Cavalli, showed closely cropped beards that more closely resembled a few days' worth of scruff. Also of note: An exciting frequency of ginger beards! Take a look of the season's best beards in the slideshow.BEGIN SLIDESHOW
