Phew, we thought we’d do a sneaky detour out of the office today to go and watch Charlie Le Mindu, wig-maker extraordinaire and master of ‘haute coiffure’ put on his LFW show.
Then, just as the lights were about to dim, in walked . . . none other than La Roux singer Elly Jackson! Yep, on the arm of her friend and collaborator, super-stylist Nova Dando looking relaxed in her winter coat and trademark hat, Elly got settled for the hair raising spectacle.
Monsieur Le Mindu didn’t disappoint, with a slick presentation of wiggy hats, coats and accessories, with giant crucifixes, a black rose and at one point a Faberge egg balanced on the models' heads. Some of the girls were also sporting some alarming black makeup . . ..
Afterwards, we managed to get a quick ‘hello’ in with Elly and asked her what she thought of the show.
“I really enjoyed it, he’s cool”, she beamed. “I particularly liked the one, with the huge egg – and the ballerina inside!”
Then we asked her if she was thinking of collaborating on her look with Charlie, (although, we have to say, it’ll be hard to improve on her already extreme quiffiness without venturing into Gaga territory)
“Oooh, I don’t know.” Then Nova spun around and said “We don’t know yet. Lets go and meet him now!”
You heard it on Grazia Daily first!
