A Play For Plumage, Backstage At Alexis Mabille
While readers of this blog are well aware that, in our opinion, the feather hair-extension craze needs to come to a swift and decisive end, hairstylist Odile Gilbert made us believe in the magic of feathers again at Alexis Mabille’s Couture show yesterday—if only for a few glorious moments. Using copious amounts of L’Oréal Elnett hair spray to slick back models’ strands into chignons and woven looks, Gilbert incorporated a series of gorgeous, exotic quills into her coifs to complement the designer’s luxe collection. (The clothes, too, incorporated plumes.) What do you think: Still played out, or reinvigorated, thanks to a couture miracle? Let us know below.
