Jessica Stam, The Latest Platinum Blonde
Jessica Stam has been flame-haired and flaxen over the course of her catwalking career, but we missed the opportunity to see her positively platinum at Balenciaga this season, as hers was sadly not one of the heads of hair treated to Guido Palau’s peroxide dye jobs. W Korea remedied that this month, with a new editorial starring the Canadian super in which she dons long, silvery blond locks that could give Britt Maren and Abbey Lee Kershaw a run for their money. Hairstylist Ashley Javier used an assortment of Leonor Greyl products on set to style what is, unfortunately, a wig, but it’s gotten us thinking that Stam could stand to go brighter with her blond for the Fall shows, especially if she ever plans on wearing a similarly sanguine pout to the one NARS national makeup artist Francelle Daly slicked on for the shoot. What hair color do you think suits the porcelain-skinned runway star best?
