Did you think you were supposed to hide your bobby pins? Silly you. For Zac Posen's fall runway, hairstylist Odile Gilbert lined the basic hairstyling tools neatly up and down models's glossy waves, giving a traditionally romantic hairstyle a new graphic edge.
It was a perfect complement to the "clean drama" (Posen's words) of the collection's voluminous but unadorned gowns.

"We want the wave, wave, wave," said Gilbert backstage. She used a one-inch curling iron for loose waves. Added plenty of Kérastase Laque Dentelle for a high shine. And then slipped 60 (yup, six zero) bobby pins into each models' s style. "They redesign the wave, and make it something different and modern." The effect was stunning, which isn't all that surprising given Gilbert's history with reimagining hair accessories. The legendary hairstylist has used some pretty unusual accouterments, including clay and a chandelier, to turn hair into works of art.
