Tressed to impress: Models strut their stuff on the catwalk… with GREY hair during Madrid Fashion Week
It could be seen as representing the age of austerity Europe is currently entering. Or it could be a homage to the older generations.
Either way, the models unveiling the latest Maria Barros designs made a dramatic impact when they took to the catwalk at Madrid Fashion Week – all of them sporting sleek grey hairstyles.
The silver-haired foxes were certainly tressed to impress as they sashayed down the runway in Barros's autumn/winter collection in the Spanish city.

The grey wigs and clean make-up appear to represent a new creative stage of Barros as she revealed her 2012/2013 collection.
Using materials such as wool and silk in neutral colours, shades of white,
black or grey gave way to greens and burgundy – with some featuring a
splash of gold.
Barros said: 'Through this collection i tell a story, my story, my world.'
She is not the first designer to use grey-haired models. In 2010 Calvin Klein unveiled his collection with silver-haired models – praised and criticised in equal measure for attempting to break the 'last taboo' of women's fashion.
