Jil Sander’s “Helmet-Like” Bobs, Off The Runway—And On The Streets Of New York-------
We’re not going to pretend that we know a whole lot about Piper Perabo. If memory serves, she was in Coyote Ugly; that’s about all we can report. But at the New York Cares Coat Drive at Bloomingdale’s last night, we learned something else about the actress: She’s willing to take risks with runway beauty. Perabo turned up to the event sporting one of the most impressive, challenging, and utterly gorgeous coifs of the Spring season, namely Guido Palau’s slicked-back and curled-under faux bob from Jil Sander—a style which Palau himself pointed out was not easily duplicatable. But that didn’t stop Perabo, which we will definitely remember next time her name comes up. Thoughts on the sculpted look’s first off-the-catwalk cameo?
