QUOTE Sarah Mower in the Telegraph-

"HOORAY FOR GREY
Here’s a turn-up for the books from the collections: grey hair is suddenly edgy and fashionable. I’m trying to think of a precedent for this, but apart from the fad for powdered wigs in the eighteenth century, I don’t think we’ve ever quite seen the like. Models with silver-tinted hair oddly under-streaked with green, pink and blue roamed the catwalks at Proenza Schouler and Giles Deacon, but why? Credit the look to the inspiration of a few stylish British individualists. Daphne Guinness, with her grey-and-black streaked pompadour, is one. Deacon got her to let her hair down and open and close his show. Sarah Harris, the Vogue fashion writer, and Kristen McMenamy, the ex-supermodel, are two more who magnetise attention around London with their stunning long, grey hair. But I conclude Katie Shillingford, Gareth Pugh’s stylist, is the chief influencer this season. When she turned up to shows, the way she was wearing her hair - grey with navy tips - had half the audience turning around and gawping harder at her than attending to what was happening on the catwalk. My spies tell me her colourist is Alex Brownsell - clearly, a star in the making."
