Throwback Thursday: Drip Dry
Throwback Thursday is a column on Beauty Counter in which we pore over the pages of our favorite glossies from decades past in search of a little modern-day makeup and hair inspiration.
The Model: Christy Turlington Burns
The Moment: Wet Hair
The Motivation: We admit we’re huge Christy Turlington Burns fans, but right now it seems the whole fashion world is, too. From Harper’s Bazaar‘s U.S. June/July cover to a new Calvin Klein underwear ad (where she reprises her role from the late eighties), this original super is proving that the nineties really are back. Not only does the above Nick Knight-lensed shot provide one more example of how gorgeous this top model is, but it highlights another trend: wet hair. We spotted damp strands (considered one of hairstylist Guido Palau’s trademark looks) on the Fall runways at Prada, Marni, and Giambattista Valli. A dip in the pool (or in the case of today’s NYC weather, getting caught in the rain) never looked so chic.—Tara Lamont-Djite
