Forites On A Roll - 1992

Photo: Lorraine Sylvestre

Forties on a roll, a big squashy pageboy roll at the ends – for nostalgics who want to look retro yet modern.  La Coupe’s Kim Lepine was inspired by Vivien Leigh in the early forties, at the time she accepted the Oscar for her legendary role as Scarlett O’Hara in the movie “Gone With The Wind.”  The model, Carol, Dlugos, who looked like Vivien Leigh, also “played” her in La Coupe’s Tara Collection.  For how to cut and set this glamorous look (before flat irons) –  go to HairThen, La Coupe,  Mish Mash on
