Spring 2011: Beauty: Painted Locks

The latest Alexander Wang collection is a whitewash of wonderfulness. [nymag.com]

At Alexander Wang, hair was whitewashed to fit the mood of crisp whites and to also, add depth to the many sheer pieces (make note of the nose rings, which added a feeling of toughness and balance to the collection-not to mention, another level of cool).

At Altuzarra, hair was stiffly, slicked back (perhaps, poking fun at the models who succumb to beyond-greasy-hair during the hubbub of fashion week?) and varied from blue to orange, focusing on the tribal influence of the collection.

Painted lock-clad models walk the finale at Joseph Altuzarra's Spring 2011 collection. [stylelist.com]
