Rachel McAdams Goes Retro
The press junket for Rachel McAdams’ new film Morning Glory is officially under way, and the actress chose a strapless, gray Lanvin number for its opening night in New York. She also opted for an interesting coif, which her stylist, Sebastian Professional Stylist design team member Thomas Dunkin, described as “a punch of rock star glam.” We will admit that McAdam’s voluminous, teased-out, rough-dried strands did draw our attention, but only because the style seemed oddly retro. (For the record, Dunkin did indeed employ large Velcro rollers to get the height at McAdams’ roots, which he topped off with Sebastian Professional Matte Putty to give her tresses a dull finish reminiscent of the sixties’ popular rat style). A soft gray cat-eye and a slightly asymmetrical parting added modernity—or “rock star glam,” as it were—but we would’ve preferred something a bit more sexy and sleek with look 39 off Alber Elbaz’ Spring runway. You too?
