When Art Imitates Life

Photobucket

When the label Issa, wanted wild runway hair they turned no further for inspiration than one of the shows own models; London it-girl Alice Dellal. Alice is infamous for her rebellious half shaved head. Somehow she still manages to look beautiful with a style very few could pull off.

Half the runway models sported the adventurous Alice Dellal look, one of them being Alice herself. Thankfully the models didn't have to shave their head but hairstylists achieved the look with hairspray and strategically placed bobby pins. The look is compared to a punky, modern day Veronica Lake hairstyle. I think it's so fascinating when fashion designers seek inspiration from their everyday surroundings.
