Cannes 2013: Pohawk Walk

Maybe it’s the influence of that almost-punk, nearly-punk and not-really-punk that surrounds fashion media lately, but did I just see (what I am calling) a ‘pohawk’ in Cannes?

Nicole Kidman debuts the ‘pohawk’ walk.

Note the Dior Couture – SS13 this time. That’s two for Raf on opening night, and I’ve only just begun counting.

It was jarring at first, but it’s an interesting way to contrast the floral couture.

Kidman’s a sly one, when it comes to her red carpet choices.

Whether you like it or not, she clearly wins the prize for most durable hair products!

Do we like, or is the jury still out?

And while a couple of fellow fashion daredevils tried, their tresses left them, well, stranded.

Bye Bye Bai.

Although Lady Hervey’s locks weren’t as locked down by lotions and potions as Nic’s, I appreciated that she took a fashion risk. Also, she’s a Lady and thus, entitled to hair ornamentation.

Honorable hair mention to Lady Victoria Hervey for going for it.

It’s the risk-takers that make the red carpet dance, after all. That’s one thing I’ve always appreciated about Nicole Kidman – she doesn’t always win the sartorial lottery, but she takes chances.

She’s a jury member this year, so there will be a few more surprises over the next 11 days, I am sure.

Hair’s to you, ladies, but I took it to new heights tonight.
