You must have noticed by now that coloured hair has become the new it trend; walk the trendy streets of Causeway Bay or attend any fashion event and you're bound to see a handful of people with enough fashion-kudos (and confidence) to pull off a colourfully dyed mane of purple, pink, green or blue. Way back in the Naughties, however, there was one particular style maven who started sporting this haute macabre long lookbefore it was 'cool': UK-based stylist Katie Shillingford. She was the first subject captured with drip-dyed blue hair by Tommy Ton of JakandJil;since then she's sprouted a huge crop of copycat admirers. We think she looks best with her current candy floss pink 'do. Seeing Katie with her candy-coloured mane on her wedding day done up with 20's inspired waves and dressed in a custom Gareth Pugh gown... well, let's just say it literally took our breath away.
