We have to confess, that without a heads-up from seeing her on the Graham Norton Show, we would not have recognised Dawn French in this photo.
Where has that swingy bob gone? Where is the blunt-cut fringe we so love? We admire her normal style which is why we included her in our Top of the Crops for Women over-50. We think her sense of what works for her inspires us and we hope it inspires you, too.
This is how she appears for her role in Delicious which according to IMDB – the bible of the film and TV industry – is a drama series about food, love and infidelity in Cornwall. As well as French, it also stars Emilia Fox, Obi Abili and Iain Glen.
Now, first of all, let us acknowledge that we realise this is her look FOR A ROLE; it does not signal a major shift for Ms French in Real Life, or at least we hope not. If it did, we might have to rethink her place on our Top hairstyles for Women over-50. We might also rethink suggesting stealing her style which we did because we love her look.
Speaking on the Graham Norton Show, Dawn acknowledged the attention the new hair-style has attracted and demonstrated the stupidity of it by gurning and pulling her fringe back off her face.
While we don’t like this “new” look, we do think it serves a purpose. It highlights the impact of a hairstyle and the importance of the right hair cut, particularly on a woman of 50 plus.
Our view is that the vivacious actress looks significantly older with this classic, brushed-back style. We’d love to know what you think. Do tell us.
