Julia Wins The Crown
Headbands were the big story of last month’s Golden Globe awards as both Charlize Theron and Michelle Williams sported bedazzled hairpieces to the event. But the accessories were met with mixed reviews, as Theron’s crystal-encrusted band and Williams’ black satin strap seemed to detract from the otherwise elegant quality of their Dior couture and Jason Wu gowns, respectively. But leave it to Julia Restoin-Roitfeld to give the hair band its just deserts. At last night’s amfAR New York gala to kick off Fall fashion week, the expectant mother sported a gilded, knotted coronet, which sat toward the back of her head rather than the front. The romantic style managed to spruce up her head-to-toe black look, without any of the kitsch a more forward-leaning band might have elicited. Don’t you agree?
