In September’s issue of Vogue Hellas, icy blonde hair and dark lips flatter modern geometric shapes. Model Ramona wears an exaggerated white pompadour, which shifts from perfectly quaffed to slightly mussed through the various photos. The black and white images show off the angular lines of the garments, contrasting dark fabrics with Ramona’s pale skin and platinum locks.

Back in spring, when designers released their fall 2012 collections, this vibrant shade was all over the runways. Presently, it was named Color of the Year by Pantone, a company that specializes in color matching and trend forecasting. The tone is vibrant, cheerful, and exotic. We love it combined with soft makeup, and gentle waves pulled into a loose updo. If the hue is too much to wear as an all-over ‘do, it also works well as a highlight for an auburn shade, or as a dip-dyed accent for blondes.

Something that immediately caught our attention was the timeless hairstyle Levitt was sporting. The combination of ultra short sides and a fuller top section surely gives a nod to hairstyles of leading men from the past. Click through to see more photos from the editorial.
