 Glam Chic Chignon with Crystals – 2011

This “fearlessly” glamorous chic chignon, different from every angle, has a lot going on – but it all works. Inspired by Hollywood movies (Anne Baxter in “All About Eve” and Bette Davis in “Dark Victory”) Peter Gray created this look for the Fall 2011 NY Fashion Week Show by red-carpet designers, Badgley Mischka. The off-center, spiral-rolled chignon resting low on the nape has a rope twist on the opposite side, and a long strip of crystals placed over the diagonal part.
