Shakira, Dream Weaver-------
The beauty look backstage at Valentino for Spring was one of our hands-down favorites of the season. The soft pastel makeup and the hair—the hair! —were enough to inspire many countless hours of attempting to re-create Pat McGrath’s soft gray and pink lids and Guido Palau’s coronet of braids in the privacy of our own home. Palau’s handiwork involved intricately weaving two intertwining braids, a procedure we recognized almost immediately when we spotted Shakira on the red carpet at the Latin Recording Academy Person Of The Year awards in her honor. But rather than take the style all the way around her hairline, the “She Wolf” singer wrapped one braid halfway around her head and created another on the other side, ultimately joining the two into a single, side-slung plait. Thoughts on her adaptation of the look?
