Throwback Thursday: Jumping On The Bandwagon


Throwback Thursday 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: Yasmin Le Bon

The Moment: Black headbands

The Motivation: All too often, we find ourselves looking back on the eighties for beauty and fashion inspiration—not so much for the shoulder pads and side ponytails (although we will admit to dabbling in both in the not-so-distant past) but to channel the feeling of unbridled creativity that colored the supermodel era. Apparently, we’re not the only ones: Yasmin Le Bon’s polarized lenses in this 1985 shoot are trending again; ditto her black do-rag turned headband, which turned up last month in Paris courtesy of Julien d’Ys and Guido Palau who employed similar black hair wraps at Alexander Wang’s Balenciaga debut and Nina Ricci, respectively. The style seems ripe for a reprise this summer, if you ask us.
