January 2. We remember John Sahag’s birthday. The legendary John Sahag is missed. Sadly missed. There was no one like him. His work has stood the test of time, not dated. He was tomorrow’s man, into the 21st century in the 20th. How easy it is to forget that he did this first, before anyone else. and that, and that too.
Here he is standing proudly with some of his work in a photo for a New York Magazine article on the launch of his first Workshop, late 1985. For more about John Sahag The Man, click this album

Catwalk TIGI’s US Creative Director, Thomas Osborn, created care-free undone polished hair with a touch of volume on the crown with gentle buckled waves and a side swept effect for the Libertine New York Fashion Week Spring Show for 2016. This chic cream-colored dress had abstract pink shapes here and there, worn with deconstructed tattered black hosiery, neon plastic chains dangling on shoes and bracelets, an amazing bag with Morticia and Gomez Adams, and many more jaw-dropping illustrations. Inspirations for this collection by Johnson Hartig with Maryann Malakpour included molecular cell research. More from this fab fun show, click HERE

Color exploded on men’s white sneakers like no others at Libertine’s New York Fashion Show for Spring 2016. The neon plastic chains and the baubles bobbing here and there were as colorific as you can get. A shoe-in for the most eccentric footwear at the shows, the Libertine designer, Johnson Hartig with stylist Maryann Malakpour, also showed women’s shoes equally as fab.

One of three looks presented in one of three different rooms with punk, goth, romantic, athletic, and glittering looks designed by Nicola Formichetti for his third Nicopanda Spring 2016 New York Fashion Week Presentation, for which Lady Gaga made an appearance. The center man here is wearing a frilled multi-level skirt with a black anorak, then there are the genderless black latex fashions with a punk rocker/goth feel, a look with a great skirt and wet-looking hair that is not, by Peter Gray.

I first posted Charlize Theron in “Mad Max Fury Road” October 2013, then again when it was belatedly released on May 15, 2014. Here I am posting it again because the movie got so many Oscar nominations today. And can be seen on HBO tonight. Here is my post.
Movie Actress, Oscar-winner Charlize Theron and her hair over the years from long to mid to bald to short buzzed with (omg, top right) grey showing to a short crop growing out beautifully.
She shaved her hair bald for the new fourth “Mad Max” movie, “Fury Road” – due May 15 with Tom Hardy as Mad Max, the role Mel Gibson originated. She plays Furiosa in the Australian Warner Bros movie which has taken a while to arrive. (This collage and story were first posted on Helen’s Blog in October 2013!)
No wigs for Charlize. Most of us first saw her cropped hair after the Mad Max shave at the 2013 Oscars, with Charlize looking magnificent, a hot standout, but here are some earlier photos. We also remember her from past Oscars, red carpets, the great J’Adore Dior Perfume Ads and we’ve always thought her beautiful, even bald.

The gorgeous gowns by Badgley Mischka at their New York Fashion Week show for Spring 2016 were sensuous, inspired by 1950s Buenos Aires. Some of the lightweight gowns which drifted down the runway had floral appliqués, many were shown with beautiful bracelets by Patricia Von Musulin, and some charming evening bags finished the looks. Stay tuned for the hair by Peter Gray with more red carpet gown and jewelry inspirations …

No one does costume like BBC-TV. No one. Anywhere. And what they do can often look very modern, very relevant today. The fashions. The hair. The hair accessories. Well, just about everything. Take Michelle Dockery wearing this ancient Egyptian art-inspired wide bandeau in the Final Series of “Downton Abbey” on PBS-TV. It just makes her and her bob look that more marvelous. The look is so striking in so many scenes of the hit series that the bandeau is hot news. Easy to copy. Just find some similar fabric and tie it on. The final episodes take place between 1925 and 1927 and King Tutankhamen’s tomb, discovered in 1922, influenced everything in the ’20s, from hair to fashion, furniture, jewelry and more, so there could also be a return to deco designs on everything. For two more Downton Bandeaux, some more bandeau ideas archived from my website, and a preview of the series, scroll down …
