Yes kids the impossible has happened. Hawt bixch du jour, designer Olivier Theyskens has opted for a new look and to dat the press pundits are doing cartwheels cause that shit got them all dizzy and smarting how yummy and tre delicious Olivier really is with his new short locks.
Said to now resemble Kurt Cobain (why that comparison defies me, it’s not like he invented chin length bobs, or did he?) the handsome designer offered the following (yes fashion news is getting all gory these days):
Into The Gloss: “There’s no real reason, but people always want to think there’s something more to it. I’ve been wanting to cut it for years, but it’s never been the right time—when I left Ricci and took a year off, I wanted to cut it, but then people would think, ‘Oh no, did he freak out?!’ [Laughs] And then when I took the job at Theory and moved to New York, people would have associated it with that change. So I just waited.”
Never been the right time? Interesting. I always thought designers could make anything they wanted the right time, then again who cares when anything is the right time? Just cut, snip, flip and sashay down the street looking and smelling like the fresh hawt bixch you finally gave you permission to be.
Isn’t it time you finally got rid of those long locks too…?
