Dangerous allure in black
Part of the fun of exploring 2012’s hair trends is watching as they unveil themselves in a variety of different forms. Across editorials, on the street, in look books - the simplest of hairstyles get reinvented time and again. Sonia Rykiel’s silky procession of side-pinned waves for spring 2012 entered our minds as something girlishly innocent - perfect for pairing with spring whites and gelati shades of pink and yellow. In Emily DiDonato’s latest shoot for Vogue Mexico though, the same hairstyle becomes decidedly femme fatale.
In Alexander Neumann’s photos DiDonato swans about in a raven palette. Black lace is softly dangerous. Other aspects have the minutest hint of fetish, like an open jacket revealing black lingerie or a maxidress sheer enough to show stay-up stockigns. Pearl bracelets over black opera gloves are the kind of combination only worn with heads held high, heels even higher, and mandatory red lipstick.
Styled by Vanessa Bellugeon for the January 2012 issue of Vogue Mexico, it’s an editorial inspiring your choices of both dangerously feminine outfits, and classically pinned waves. View it in full above.
