Elle Macpherson is no stranger to flaunting her considerable assets. And it turns out that at age 50 (let’s let that sink in, shall we…), she has something brand-new to show off.
Yesterday morning, at the launch of her lingerie line for JCPenney, The Body by Elle Macpherson, the model had striking ombré hair. Six to eight inches of her luxurious brunette roots blended into a long mane of bleachy blonde waves. Macpherson told me that her colorist wasn’t just hopping on the ombré bandwagon—he wanted her to flaunt her own gray-free hair color. Louis Angelo, who styled her hair for the event, was pleased to see her natural color: “Hey, if I didn’t have any gray hair, I would show eight inches of roots,” he says.
