After our amazing and oh-so exclusive red carpet masterclass with Dior last weekend out in Cannes we’ve be keeping an eager eye on the red carpet this week to check that those celebrity types are being good and following all the beauty rules required.
And then last night, just before we scooted off for a much needed Tuesday night Pimms in our local beer garden, we spotted that actress Nicole Kidman had landed in the french seaside town to promote her new sexual thriller The Paperboy, for which she was required to swap her usual English Rose complexion for a golden tan, heavy makeup and a platinum wig, and make out with Zac Efron, (who incidently described their love scenes as 'highlight of my life.') Yikes.
Anyway…back to Cannes where the 44 year old actress arrived accompanied by a brand new fringe and flicky blow dry combo which we though looked quite chic and sixties with her oversized black sunnies and ladylike lace shirt and cardi.
In fact, bangs played a starring roles on this season’s carpets too. At the Emporio Armani show models sported shaggy beach-blonde fringed wigs, while at Hermes the girl were given razor sharp brow brushing bangs and at Galliano models worked super short Rooney Mara-esque fringes too.
Want to give it a go? We recommend trying before you buy. Hairdressers Hersehons offer a chic selection of ‘winges’, £30 (fringe wigs), that clip into your hair and are regularly used backstage. What do you think of Nicole's new look and will you be giving it a go?
