Last night, famed fashion photographer Mario Testino celebrated his legendary body of work with an exhibit that wasn’t in Paris, London, or New York, as these things tend to go. Instead, a troupe of editors and models gathered due north of Manhattan in Boston, where Testino’s images are currently on display at the city’s Museum of Fine Arts. Among the catwalkers to show face at the exhibit’s opening were longtime Testino muse and heavily pregnant Gisele Bündchen—a Boston resident, these days—Karlie Kloss, and Erin Wasson, supers in their own right, all of whom seem to share a similar love for golden highlighted brunette locks with different variances of honey. Which flaxen fix is your favorite?
Supermodel/fashion muse/jewelry designer Erin Wasson ranks right up there at the top of our “favorite catwalkers of all time” list for a number of reasons: first there’s her Texas tomboy past (any girl who can talk—and play—basketball while moonlighting as a major fashion icon is A-OK by us); then there’s the downtown, devil-may-care style sensibility that has led to more than one iconic party photo in the past few years (the paint-splattered sweatpants with slinky tank combo that she wore to Alexander Wang’s A/W 2008 after-party is still a personal favorite). i-D Magazine must share our sentiment, as they shot an entire spread of Wasson being, well, Wasson—no frills and seemingly no makeup either. Hairstylist Dennis DeVoy even managed to keep her signature, messy waves intact for the feature, using Garren’s Designing Spray Tonic to add volume and a bit of texture before weaving-in a matted-down braid that looks effortlessly perfect—much like the model herself.
