Blow drying, bobs and black

I've donned some of the most fabulous outfits this week as a guest (no longer an usher) at numerous shows during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Festival Brisbane. I lead a standing ovation for the tulled frills and slippery satin at Grbac on Day 1, I've developed a major crush on Paul Hunt (the man as well as the full skirts) and look forward to a little high street love when I attend the Queens Plaza Morning tea on Friday. 
I'm averaging 5 hours sleep a night (6 if I've pre planned the next days outfit). A blow dry in the morning has been limited to Monday and maybe Thursday (thank goodness braids are back and can be resurrected the following day). 
I have a whole new respect for Wintour and company. I now understand why the standard bob and black ensemble is so popular in the front row - bob plus black equals a good 7 hours in the sack. All this time I thought it was lack of creativity when it's actually sheer brilliance. A make over maybe on the cards friends. Stay tuned for outfit stories and fashion week criticism (of the constructive variety). I'm now off to take these tired eyes to bed.

My ex-fashion editor stylist buddy is a total natural boho babe, but come fashion week she'd suddenly get all slick and trenchcoaty - it's the only way to survive the ordeal with dignity intact!

Your hair looks gorgeous like that - the fringe is huge in Brisvegas. Love that flower, too.

Oh your hair is just too lovely. And I can definitely vouch for the bob allowing for more sleep time - I'm never having longer hair again!

I love your hair but I love every thing you do Francis Girard!
I particularly like that flower, I have a massive red rose I'm wearing at the moment and I'm in love with it...

It's all in the blow dry for the bob. A good blow dry will mke it lat perfectly for 3 days.
Flowers and fringe are fab!
