New York models are pretty in pink - hair, that is
Tuesday 15 February 2011
If grey was last year's most debated hair color - just remember Tavi Gevinson's and Kate Moss's much-discussed styles - 2011 is shaping up to be the year of the pink punk, with models such as Charlotte Free making a splash at New York fashion week.
Vogue Russia heralded pink hair on Naomi Campbell for its April issue last year, and this month, its US counterpart has followed, putting a pink-wigged Lady Gaga on its cover.
French fashion house Givenchy cast a pink-haired Malgosia Bela for its fall/winter 2010 campaign, and now fashion's love affair with the color is growing with several New York designers using its impact in their fashion shows: Richard Chai and Charlotte Ronson both cast newcomer Charlotte Free, sporting a 1990s-inspired hairstyle in the hue, while Richie Rich put a wild, teased pink 'do on one of his models.
Most looks were punk-inspired, as seen at Mandy Coon where models donned blue, orange, and pink fringes, but in some cases - such as on Untitled Bamboo's runway - the color managed to look polished and girly in a romantic, princess-y way.
