Emily from Emilie in Paris owes much of its charm to its unabashed American sensibility – candor, cheerfulness, dynamic style and, of course, faux pas (although even these tend to work in its favor). But for the show’s second season premiere last night in Los Angeles, Lily Collins turned to a French icon for her red carpet beauty. The actor stepped out in a banged and slanted bouffant, the bun entirely reminiscent of a ’60s Brigitte Bardot.
The work of hairstylist Gregory Russell, the style’s referential character was instantly recognizable, with Collins’ newly cut bangs and loose tendrils giving a romantic air to the retro moment. To boost the feel of the actress’ micro-mini Valentino, makeup artist Fiona Stiles played on the lashes, the piece approach giving the look a lush that felt effortlessly whimsical and playful. A peach-pink blush wash and a dewy nude pout completed the Bardot ode, one that looked perfectly timed for the season. Looking to make a splash at your next holiday gathering? Go for loose volume, black ribbon and a carefree air – or go like Emily and replace said nonchalance with ready enthusiasm. The look will still turn heads.
