alberta and brigitte
Even though Alberta Ferretti's fall 08 collection is filled with beautiful fabrics, pretty drapes and elegant colours, my eyes were instantly drawn to the hair and make-up when I clicked through the collection. The result can be amazing when a designer decides to channel an icon or another fashion era and mix it with the looks of today. The models smoky eyes, pale lips and long-lean-sex-machine hair reminds me so much of Birgitte Bardot, though there's no doubt that miss Bardot brings the long-lean-sex-machine hair to another level, and no one, not even models can compete! Alberta Ferretti has taken it down a few notches, and has turned Brigitte Bardot's sex appeal into a slightly sweet, innocent look. In my opinion, a perfect look when you want to look subtle sexy...but still, sometimes you just want to go full out and have fun just like the gorgeous Brigitte !
