NYFW: WHEN DREADLOCKS BECOME DREADFUL!

 Marc Jacobs Spring 2017 Runway Show - Backstage
While closing New York Fashion Week, designer Marc Jacobs decided to add a splash of color (and some controversy) to his campaign, by sending predominantly Caucasian models down the runway, sporting multi-colored dreadlocks.  Redken global creative director, Guido Palau, shared with Harper’s Bazaar that the look was inspired by transgendered director, Lana Wachowski, and “certain types of cultures, like rave culture, club culture, acid house, Boy George and Marilyn.”  As dreadlocks are mainstream in African American culture, the reference was seen by many as exclusionary.
Continuing to defend the aesthetic, Palau shared, “The interesting thing about Marc is how he takes something so street and so raw, and because of the coloration of the hair and the makeup, it becomes a total look,” referring to dreadlocks as, “something that we’ve bypassed on the street.”  However, Palau then said that Jacobs “makes us look at it again in a much more sophisticated and fashionable way,” infuriating many in the African American community who believe that the look was already sophisticated and fashionable.

 

GROOMING GAGA’S BROWS

Sunday, February 21st, 2016

Gaga BrowsLady Gaga is known for being a true chameleon, and last week, she failed to disappoint.  At the Oscar Nominee’s Luncheon (left), she appeared as an elegant ice cream blonde; at the Grammys, she channeled David Bowie as a flaming redhead (right).  She even made a surprise runway appearance at Marc Jacob’s Fall 2016 presentation on Thursday, adopting a punk-meets-goth look, created by François Nars.  So how does the multi-hyphenate transform so easily?  “I bleach my eyebrows every day – I like to keep them light,” she revealed to Vogue.  “They’re more versatile for a beauty look. You can draw [your eyebrows] any way you want when they’re bleached,” she said.
