We love looking at all the crazy fashions on display at fashion week, but sometimes the hair is even better. While designers like Sister by Sibling and Louise Gray took their fashion show hair to a crazy place, we also loved the more reserved and retro-inspired looks on at Burbery Prorsum and Alexander McQueen. As fashion week continues in London, we’ve combed through (get it?) the shows, to bring you some of the best and most out-there hairstyles. Click through to check out the cool locks on display at London Fashion Week, and check back often for more hair updates.
It’s probably part of the male model’s job description to look bored and annoyed, but some of the male models at London Fashion Week really seem to be perfecting their craft. These guys go beyond bored and listless and offer a veritable cornucopia of scorn, disdain and withering condescension. All while wearing very stupid outfits. Click through to see some of the least amused among them.
Iris Frost, the 12-year-old daughter of Jude Law and British actress Sadie Frost, finds herself at the center of some undeserved controversy after she wore a particularly cheeky dress yesterday while sitting front row at Vivienne Westwood. The Peter Pan-collared dress, which her mum said Iris had received as a gift, featured a print of candy hearts brandishing phrases such as “Blow Me,” “Drink Poison,” “Choke,” “Eat Shit,” and “Please Drown.” I don’t know where the contention stemmed from, but Sadie found it necessary to take to Twitter in order to explain the situation, saying, “I seem to have upset people and am shocked myself … Iris is a sweet, innocent girl.” I don’t buy it that neither Sadie nor Iris knew what it said on the dress, but I don’t care, either, because I think it’s awesome. Yes, she’s twelve, but I had much nastier things to say at that age than “I Hate You” and “Die Slowly.” All this dress tells me is that Iris Frost is pretty damn cool for a 12-year-old. [The Gloss]
While many labels have shifted to favor the avant-garde face, Burberry Prorsum is generally a show at which beauty is held in high priority. The Burberry girl is, after all, inherently pretty in the most natural way. Think spokesmodel for the Body fragrance, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, a woman on whom clothes seem superfluous — just a trenchcoat will do. Casual hair, a natural lip, and expertly blended neutral smokes all but comprise the Burberry muse. Keep reading »
Lana Del Rey is making big, big strides, if not in the music stratosphere then in the fashion world. Mulberry’s Autumn 2012 collection strode down the runway in London yesterday, and viewers caught the first glimpse of Lana’s new eponymous bag. Yes, that’s right — the brand that coined the ever-lusted-after Alexa, as in Chung, is now offering the Del Rey, a ladylike tote reminiscent of a larger-scale take on Fendi’s illustrious Baguette. Though clad in jeans and a varsity jacket while seated in the front row, her new custom bag didn’t stray far from her lap. Keep reading »
We love looking at all the crazy fashions on display at fashion week, but sometimes the hair is even better. While designers like Sister by Sibling and Louise Gray took their fashion show hair to a crazy place, other designers were a bit more subdued. Either way, they’ve given us plenty of inspiration for future hairstyles. Click through to check out the cool looks on display at London Fashion Week, and check back often for more hair updates.

Check out this model backstage at the Fyodor Golan F/W 2012 fashion show in London. That’s right, New York fashion week is over, but London’s is just beginning. Golan’s show featured a model in head-t0-toe lizard-like green paint. That’s going to be a messy post-show shower.
Just because she’s preggos with Jay-Z’s baby doesn’t mean that Beyonce gets out of appearing at her mama’s fashion show. Oh no, Ms. Tina Knowles walked the runway with daughter B in tow in support of Knowles’ House of Dereon line during London Fashion Week over the weekend. B’s mom, if you’ll remember, is responsible for some of Destiny’s Child most, uh, iconic costuming during the early years of their career (who could forget the outfits in Fashionista] Keep reading »
Wig maker Charlie Le Mindu, whose insane work we’ve featured here previously, decided to spice up the already eccentric London Fashion Week by having his models traipse down the runway wearing next to nothing other than his hair creations. While some of the models at the start of the 24-year-old’s show had on skimpy clothes, eventually they fell off altogether. Le Mindu is perhaps best known for having created some of Lady Gaga‘s hair looks. We suppose it’s only a matter of time before she goes buck naked, as well. After the jump, get an eyeful of the full effect (blurred). [Daily Mail] Keep reading »
