Guido Palau, The Man Who Turns Heads

I recently went to see the Met's Spring 2012 Costume Institute exhibition,  Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations  and was quite smitten with the striking head coverings and masks of the mannequins. 

They were designed by the hair genius Guido Palau who also created last year's head pieces for Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty. 

The Met has issued both prints and cards of the work with  illustrations by Miguel Villalobos.
