I’ve been drooling over Marc Jacobs‘ whimsical collections since the glorious college days, and even remember my first MJ purchase. It was a Marc by Marc Jacobs three-quarter length knitted sweater with pale orange, blue, yellow and pink butterflies embroidered on the front, and the huge buttons with the MJ logo engraved. I still wear it – it’s definitely going to be vintage one day.
Anyhow, the Marc Jacobs Spring 2011 Collection was a bit of 70′s meets 30′s style, with lots of red, burgundy, pink and fuchsia in the mix:
And then there’s my favorite part of this collection – Guido Palau of Redken‘s hair inspiration, which was based on Grace Coddington (most of you know her from The September Issue) of Vogue’s frizzy locks! She’s a huge icon in the Fashion world so it’s great to see her incorporated into the runway, as she was once a model herself!

While I agree this hairstyle is only a look suited for the lovely Grace, it works very well with some of Marc Jacobs’ collection pieces. Or perhaps we could use some of Guido’s tips on how to get the “Grace Frizz” for Halloween – now that would be fun!
