Not Just for the Preschool Set: Nina Dobrev’s Little Black Bow

-------

2014 PaleyFest - "The Vampire Diaries" & "The Originals"

Normally, I’m not one to support a trend donned by cheerleaders or children, but when I saw Nina Dobrev’s hair tie at the PaleyFest this weekend, I was reminded of a page from Diana Vreeland’s book (below). She declared 1971 the year of the ribbon and reminded her staff of its long-standing place in the fashion world (Valentino, Galitzine, and Chanel did it best). Perhaps it’s time to revive the sweet grosgrain accessory (seen more recently on Balenciaga’s and Nina Ricci’s Spring runways), make 2014 the year of the horse and the LBB (little black bow), and tie one on.
