If the clothes make the man, as they say, then the hair makes the woman–or at least her outfit. Case in point: AnnaLynne McCord, I’m afraid.
ALMC, who recently published an essay in the July issue of Cosmopolitan revealing her suicidal thought after a sexual assault when she was 18, didn’t let her soul-bearing revelation keep her locked in her house. No no, the Dallas star strutted out to the From Slavery To Freedom gala in LA where she donned a pretty pale blue dress with sleek cutouts around the waistline. You know how I feel about bearing one’s midriff on the red carpet (tacky) (and risky unless you have the world’s most perfect torso) but I really love this look on her. It’s fun and fresh yet demure and ladylike. Her shoes add just the right amount of interest and her bag ties it all together.
However. I have no idea what’s happening with her hair, and it’s clear she doesn’t either. I get that she’s going for that long-hair-don’t-care surfer girl vibe, but her locks just look dry and stringy and she’s been hitting the Sun-In one too many times. The beachy waves she was perhaps trying to achieve clearly fell out and the result was a limp, directionless style. A better option would have been to wrap her strands around a conical curling wand, or even slick it back into a sleek low pony to compliment the lines of the dress. But as it is, her hair is throwing the whole look off.
Play fantasy stylist with me minions, and tell me how you’d style ALMC’s hair to compliment the rest of her outfit!
