Alan White (ghd) is proving to be quite the colour chameleon this Fashion Week. The always-impressive hair director gave a nod to Frida Kahlo in the texture and twists of the hair look that he created for Manning Cartell, finishing off the style with one of 21 muted pastel hair colours, which helped to "bring a youthfulness to the brand." The hair wasn't the only thing colourful, either. Nails got an injection of chartreuse thanks to Nicki Minaj's Did It On 'Em polish by OPI. Max May (MAC) continued the homage to Kahlo in the makeup palette but stressed that he didn't take the inspiration too literally. The brow had a little of Kahlo's strength to it, by squaring up the high point, but May focused more on the glossy eye to keep the look "young and hot."
Sometimes less can be so much more and our fave designer de jour, Givenchy's Riccardo Tisci, presented a super-short and sweet collection for pre-spring. Frida Kahlo played muse and this was evidenced in Tisci's edit of androgynous and hyper-feminine looks: think razor-sharp tuxedo, cropped leopard blazer and festive folkloric dresses in vermilion, silk-chiffon 'pard and cream. Sublime.
