Flashback Friday: Crowning Glory

-------

hair-accessoriesFlashback Friday is a 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: Laetitia Firmin-Didot

The Moment: Bold Baubles

The Motivation: There was many a gem on the Spring 2014 runways—and we’re not talking about your standard bangle or statement necklace. The soft, braided updos at Dolce & Gabbana were laden with treasures, ranging from leaves to antiquelike gold coins. Jason Wu got in on the action with rose gold barrettes, while a sprinkling of iridescent flowers decorated ponytails at Honor. And it’s not just this season that we saw various accessories affixed to models’ heads: For Fall 2013, Rodarte offered up barbed-wire headbands, Meadham Kirchhoff embraced diamante barrettes, and Dolce & Gabbana once again sent out a bevy of luxurious crowns (this time inspired by the Byzantine Empire). While we don’t suggest you head to work wearing a tiara, we do encourage the use of a few choice jewels—such as the subtle yet elegant choices in this image, shot by Neil Kirk for British Vogue.
