If you've noticed hair getting better, or at least more deliberate lately, you're not alone: The seventies have come back, at least according to Givenchy haute couture. Designer Riccardo Tisci held his show in the space where Yves Saint Laurent used to stage his, and he channeled the late genius' instantly recognizable 1970s blend of masculine/feminine iconography and hard/soft textures with his own blend of retro/modern in a line that included tuxedos exploding in feathers and satin shorts with over-the-knee boots. (Looks like those will be hanging on for at least another year.) [NYT]
