RUFFLE HAIR WITH GLASSES – 1977

Photo: Lorraine Sylvestre

Short ruffle cut looking like an upswept chignon for with the Fall 1977 fashions of ruffles, frills and high necks. By Elmer Olsen, for La Coupe. Worn with big glasses.

ANECDOTE: I was in the NY office of Diane Von Furstenberg’s then PR, Mary Blake, who liked La Coupe’s photos, and she gave me a box of sunglasses by the designer and said: “See if you can use any of these in your next photo shoot.”  I used this pair, called “Bliss” for Diane von Furstenberg’s Optique du Monde Collection. Still have them somewhere, and some of the rest of the great glasses. From more from this collection, click HERE
