Throwback Thursday: The Platinum Standard
Throwback Thursdays is a new feature on Beauty Counter in which we pore over the pages of our favorite glossies from decades past in search of a little modern-day makeup and hair inspiration.
The Model: Yfke Sturm
The Moment: Shorn Locks
The Motivation: While making the cut is nothing new (see Audrey Hepburn, Mia Farrow, Twiggy, etc.), it has quickly gained popularity in the past few months. From Karlie Kloss’ Fall bob and Edie Campbell’s black shag that inspired a runway’s worth of imitations at Marc Jacobs, to Ulyana Sergeenko’s Dior Couture homage pixie, we haven’t been hurting for chop-shop inspiration. But this 1999 Paris Vogue snap of model Yfke Sturm still jumped out at us. Something about the nineties-era Dutch stunner’s micro-fringe and razor-trimmed ends paired with her icy blond color and pastel lilac eye shadow is exciting in a whole new, old way. Save it in the binder of tearsheets you plan on taking with you to your stylist in the coming months.
