Bold and velvety reds along with warming spicy tipples are my go-to choices for crisp evenings and firework frolics. Case in point, Emily Ratajkowski, who sported an oversized bow, wavy extensions and a new short choppy fringe.
This week’s reds from Argentina and Australia are party-pleasing, palate-cuddling favourites that provide the perfect touch of cheery warmth on a chilly night.
Whether you add a bow barette to a half-up hairstyle, tie your ponytail in a pretty bow or go for an outsized look for extra drama, there are so many ways to wear this trend.
The simple addition grounded the actor’s shimmering Alaïa gown, echoing the rows of onyx sequins and tying the entire look together. It’s not surprising that so many of the celebrities attending turned to black bows – they are, after all, synonymous with Chanel, the fashion house where Karl Lagerfeld, who was honoured at this year’s Met Gala, was at the helm for years.
It makes sense, as black bows were a popular motif for Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel, alongside pearls and camellias, and her successor went on to not only popularise them, but put them firmly back on the fashion agenda. From cozy fall days to festive cocktail parties, a simple black hair bow may be all you need to elevate 2022’s remaining days.
If you’re worried about looking too styled, I would make sure there is a messy, effortless texture to your style to balance the femme feeling of a bow,” Gregory says. The Met Gala is known for its wild and outrageous fashion, and while there were many outfits from the 2023 event that we wouldn’t consider particularly wearable (Jared Leto’s cat costume, we’re looking at you), there was one accessory trend that stood out for its everyday practicality. Next came Sydney Sweeney, who attended the Bones And All premiere in black-bowed Armani, her hair pulled into a polished half-updo finished with an exaggerated and impossibly chic version of the staple accessory.
As if proof were needed, the red carpet shrugged off its schoolgirl connotations and showcased bows in various sophisticated iterations that leant more than a touch of French-Girl cool to the proceedings.
