Wave Runners Take The Met

-------


With no supermodel or superhero theme providing fodder for the outrageous looks of Met galas past (remember Madonna’s Vuitton bunny ears?), this year’s American Woman exhibit seemed to inspire a general air of classic simplicity in the beauty department—with a few colorful moments thrown in for good measure (more on that in an upcoming post). One of the biggest trends on the red carpet seemed to be an homage to pin curls and marcel waves, styles preferred by starlets of the thirties and forties—and a handful of their twenty-first-century counterparts last night. Jessica Alba, Kate Bosworth, Kristen Stewart, Marion Cotillard, and Iman all sported variations on sleek, ridged texture with deep side or middle parts. Who do you think did the ‘do best?
