This Season, Redheads Have More Fun


When we saw an orange-hued hairline peeking out of the scarf-cum-hood (scood, if you will) Vlada Roslyakova wore at Alexander Wang this past weekend, we thought our eyes were deceiving us. But after a few backstage encounters yesterday, first at Preen and then at DKNY, we were able to confirm our suspicions: Yes, the Russian model has gone red and apparently just felt the need to switch it up. “I wanted a change,” she said when we weaseled our way through three hairstylists drying, brushing, and curling Roslyakova’s new tresses, which are at the very strawberry end on the strawberry blond continuum. “Laurie did it,” the formerly flaxen beauty told us, which we can only assume was a shout-out to colorist extraordinaire Laurie Foley, whose L’Atelier de Laurie on East 4th Street is a favorite of Gwyneth Paltrow and Agyness Deyn. With Coco Rocha also playing with fire as of late, we’re gonna go ahead and guess that it’s only a matter of time before Jessica Stam returns to her roots, so to speak.

Designer Fragrance Blitzkrieg


Fashion’s ties to fragrance are nothing new. It seems that every month or so news breaks of yet another designer bottling their respective brand so that devotees have yet another way to express loyalty. Less common, however, are fashion/fragrance collaborations that originate in a desire to altruistically participate in a collaborative creative endeavor to produce wearable, pleasant-smelling art for a cause. Enter The Six Scents Initiative, the brainchild of Joseph Quartana, owner of Seven New York, in conjunction with Symrise, the world’s leading fragrance company, and the Metaproject creative agency. Six Scents: Series One will feature fragrances by six renowned perfumers working with six equally celebrated designers, individually numbered with custom packaging and sold in a limited quantity of 2,000 with a portion of the proceeds going toward awareness and funding for the Designers Against AIDS International AIDS Awareness Education Center in Antwerp, Belgium, scheduled to open in December. For the project’s debut (it’s intended to be an annual undertaking), Alexandre Herchcovitch, Bernhard Willhelm, Cosmic Wonder Light Source, Gareth Pugh, Jeremy Scott, and Preen went into the lab to create Urban Tropicalia, Wicken 3000, Spirit of Wood, Diagonal, Illicit Sex, and Teen Spirit respectively, dabbling in a wash of different notes, from rose and vetiver to fig leaves and dill.
