A sexy vibe is a constant at Joseph Altuzarra shows, and this season was no different. Though he tried to fool us with his first few looks of proper looking suits, the styles became more tousled and bedroom-inspired as they came down the catwalk. Altuzarra said his inspiration was taken from sinister beauty, found in film such as Rosemary’s Baby and Barry Lyndon. Playing on the retro yet sexy theme, the hair at the show was an amazing heart shape chignon topped off with a hair net. It read very Catherine Deneuve in Belle de Jour–– pure and yet super sexy. We can’t wait to try this lady-like yet sassy look on. To learn how to emulate the do, click through to style notes. –– Michelle Rotbart


Step One: Spray length with primp and gather into a ponytail. Then wrap a section of hair around the base of the ponytail to hide the elastic.

Step Two: Envelop the tail in a hairnet and roll it up and pin to form a chignon in a shape of a heart.

Step Three: Spray with primp and put on your pearls and your best sexy pout.
