Last week I posted about the trend back to brunettes.
The New York catwalks have been a sea of raven and brunette locks of all ethnicities, in response to criticisms over, what seemed to be, last season's mono-cultural, white-wash, catwalk casting.
Some of my favourites (that I mention here in this post http://chowderchunkybits.blogspot.com/2009/02/predictions-for-ny-fashion-week.html),Brunettes Stephanie Carta,and newcomer Selina Khan, have had good seasons so far... while brunette,teen-sensation, Monika Jagaciak, http://chowderchunkybits.blogspot.com/2009/02/slip-ups-with-birth-certificate.html has been the break-out star of the season.
And now, she has opened and closed the prestigious and career-making show, Calvin Klein, the label that launched the careers of Natalia Vodianova and Kate Moss.
Advance pictures also suggest that another of my favorites, V Supreme Model Winner, and fellow brunette, Addison Gill will follow her down the catwalk in an exclusive for Calvin Klein.
The big shock of this casting is that former Calvin Klein exclusive, and this season's campaign queen, (including campaigns for Calvin Klein), the beautiful, blonde Toni Garrn, did not walk the show!
Interestingly, when posting about Kate Sylvester's beautiful new Black Swan Campaign yesterday, I noticed that they had persuaded, Campaign girl, and natural blonde, Gina, to go dark for the campaign
