During last summer’s couture shows, Karlie Kloss took the year-defining peroxide plunge, exchanging her soft blonde hair for an icy platinum iteration. But, as of late, it seems the model has been inching her way into warmer territory, culminating in far sunnier tone that begins at the root. Kloss stepped out at yesterday’s Calvin Klein Fall 2018 show with her center-separated waves bearing a shade of blonde positioned somewhere toward the golden end of the spectrum.
While her formerly platinum mane was characterized by its single-minded monochromatic pitch, Kloss’s new hue was made memorable by its subtle ombre quality, featuring a golden crown that edged into a subtly cooler baby blonde. The shade shift was one that transformed her entire look, heightening the effect of her dewy complexion with an almost summery undertone that countered the current season’s biting chill. Blondes who opted into 2017’s blanched mandate, take note: a quiet lean toward gilded may be 2018’s instant answer to a healthy, fresh-faced glow.
