The Girl With The Chanel Fine Jewelry In Her Hair
It goes without saying that we wish were in Tokyo for last night’s cocktail, dinner, and Chanel Haute Couture reprise that went on in Japan’s capital for a select group of Karl Lagerfeld’s friends and fans who were able to make the trip. Not only do we live for the spectacle that is Tokyo—its bustling shops, over-the-top hotels, and unreal fish markets—but it just so happens that we loved Lagerfeld’s Spring Couture stewardess homage the first time we saw it, back in January. But maybe not as much as his Métiers d’Art pre-fall collection, which we still dream about four months later (please allow us to direct your attention to looks 41 and 64, if you need a little refresher course)—which is why it was hard to miss French-Spanish actress Astrid Bergès-Frisbey, who selected look 65 off that Raj-inspired runway for the evening’s festivities. As we pored over images of the Pirates of the Caribbean star’s dress, we noticed that while she eschewed Peter Philips’ dark, kohl-rimmed eyes from the show, she did incorporate Sam McKnight’s bejeweled hairstyle. Rather than work one of the large-scale pieces of Chanel Fine Jewelry that McKnight clipped into model’s dreaded locks back in December, Bergès-Frisbey selected a long string of gold and lavender crystal orbs, which she wound through a long, tousled, side-slung braid. Her off-the-catwalk interpretation only made us love the look that much more. Thoughts on her haute hair?
