From the singer Erikah Badu to Princess Mozah Bint Nasser, Brigitte Bardot to Amal Clooney, many jet-setting women, glamorous goddesses and modern finance princesses wear the turban as a gesture of modesty and a challenge to beauty.
Emulate their style with a small trick, don’t worry if you can’t tie a turban: Mantero created a ""pre-modelled"" ready-to-wear turban. The ""turban goddess"" was Loulou de La Falaise, a faithful friend and inspirer - the “muse"" of Monsieur Yves Saint Laurent. Loulou was English and had a passion for the ethnic style, with her colourful, dishevelled and irreverent flair in the most fashionable evenings of Paris. She was married wearing a turban for her second marriage with Thadéé Klossowski, son of Balthus. Her ultra-chic folk style is easy to emulate.
Autumn/winter fashion is all about long-dresses, bootcut trousers, ruched shirts with an overlay of lightweight fabrics with texture and print effects. Cover your head, forehead and hair exposed, if long, and fit with luxurious chandelier jewellery or geometric clips. As for the makeup, the focus is on the eyes: use kajal, like Maghreb women, or a waterproof eyeliner. Fake eyelash effect mascara and a touch of gloss. Et voilà: you are ready and "in tune" to visit the newly opened Yves Saint Laurent Foundation cultural centre near the Jardin de Majorelle in Marrakech.
