Braided Beauties Backstage At Alexis Mabille
The men’s shows are over and Couture has officially begun—never a dull moment on the fashion calendar! We’d like to draw your attention to a particularly lovely hair moment that happened this morning backstage at Alexis Mabille. There, just as she did at Hermès in October, hairstylist Odile Gilbert constructed a gorgeous long, flowing braid, secured with a clear elastic and interwoven with white embroidered flowers. We know what you’re thinking: This style has the potential of slipping dangerously into bridal territory. Think again: The small silhouette keeps the base of the plait close to the head, making the overall effect more sleek than sweet. Eyelids dusted in a neutral sandy brown shade, slightly sculpted cheeks, and a natural pink lip courtesy of makeup artist Carole Colombani add a note of playfulness. The result is downright pretty. What do you think of the look?
