Every season I anxiously wait to see the hair accessories at the Rodarte runway show. Laura and Kate Mulleavy are known to show decorative barrettes or bejeweled pins, but this season the ladies created mischievously romantic head pieces. Polished metal crowns decorated with colorful cast-metal orchids finished off the models textured waves and chignons. Wispy pieces were left dangling at the front for an ethereal look. This mix of jewelry and flowers is a great update of the floral crowns I keep seeing. I expect to interpretations among festival goers and bohemian brides within the next few months. To see some of my favorite looks from the show, click through to style notes. –– Michelle Rotbart  Click for StyleNotes →
