To some extent, fashion has always reflected economic and cultural disparity. In ancient Rome only noble women dyed their hair red while poor women wore theirs dark. In the middle ages the wealthy wore towering headdresses while commoners kept their tresses covered with wimples or wore them in simple braids. But for the last century or so hair trends have equalized a bit. In the twenties, women both rich and poor wore swing bobs; In the sixties, everyone was teasing and spraying to create the beehive. But lately the media has been giving a lot of coverage to looks that are hard to pull off at a conservative nine-to-five. Trends like rainbow hair, undercuts, and big, wild texture don’t work at the office. Is Capital fashion a fantasy or our future? Click the style notes to learn more. ––  Laura Martin

mockingjay

Teasers for Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 2 are rolling out ahead of the November release of the final installment of the blockbusting franchise. In a blood-red full body suit with matching arrows, and sitting on a majestic ivory throne, Jen’s as beautiful as she is tough. We love her fine fishtail braid. A contrast to the blowsy braid worn when we first met Katniss, it symbolizes her growth from poor peasant girl to the leader of the Panem world.  See more of Katniss’s best looks in the notes.

Scarlett Johansson’s new movie, Lucy, is an action-packed adventure. This high-octane film keeps you engaged the whole time thanks to its short length and non-stop excitement. But what we love most about is the look Scarlett sports.

The image above is a still from a 1-minute movie that takes a 360-degree look at “Johanna in an exquisite Alon Livne creation that ‘juxtaposes the flowing drapery of classic statuary… With plunging lines and slits as daring and divine as the warrior woman herself…” Watch the whole video below….
