Dior made a big beauty statement during its collection—ponytails and statement jewelry. In an interesting twist on a classic, the Dior beauty team created a look that was a blend of hair and jewelry. The conceptual style was created by pulling length back into a ponytail and then making a break in the hair at ear level allowing the fashion house’s oversize jewelry pieces to peek through. The tail was then caught under a colorful piece of fabric that tied loosely around the neck and was topped off with a choker.
