Fashion Week Zoom: wet hair look at Alberta Ferretti

The mermaid-like models in the Alberta Ferretti catwalk show during Milan Fashion Week boasted wet-look hair. Ugh. This photo was snapped on 19 September 2012.

The fashion creations of Italian designer Alberta Ferretti were on show earlier this week. Her models showed off a trend that has been appearing on lots of catwalks... the wet-hair look.

I just don't know about this look. One of my French colleagues banged on about how this gives us a taste a the beach, how a veritable wave of freshness hits the runway and how we all start thinking about mermaids (she said it soooo much better than I did.)

But I still can't help but think that it looks a little bit greasy. In a slicked back ponytail, à la J.Lo, it doesn't look half bad especially when paired with big hoops. But if your hair is left down then, to me, it just looks like your poor locks are crying out for a good washing.

What do you think?

Fashion rendez-vous

The wordwide Fashion Weeks are a veritable whirl of colour and styles all over the world. Even if there were a million of us, we couldn't bring you all the trends on display. But we can bring you analysis of some of the most talked about and most remarkable trends on show... and ask you what you think. We are the masters of our own look, after all.
