For Better or For Worse, Pacino Rocks a Headband at the Tony’s

Fashionably speaking, as a man at an awards show, it’s hard to separate yourself from all the other men wearing tuxes on the Red Carpet. But at last night’s Tony Awards, there was one man who did it well: Al Pacino.
Ok, so maybe a headband wasn’t the most appropriate accessory for an awards show. And maybe it makes him look like an extra from Olivia Newton-John’s “Let’s Get Physical” music video. And I didn’t particularly like it, but at least it followed the “rebel” trend that dominated runways for S/S 11. In a way, Pacino was the trendiest man at the Tony’s! Take a look at Robert Geller’s S/S 11 show which was chock full of headbands. It was inspired by student protests from the 60s, and he accessorized his models with headbands to infuse the runway with a sense of fashion-y rebellion!
Headbands were also seen at Byblos’s S/S 11 presentation in transparent black and green fabrics.
