Alice Burdeu Breathes Life Into a Boring Dress at the ‘Women of Style’ Awards

InStyle and Audio hosted their “Women of Style” event at Sydney’s Hordern Pavilion the other night, honoring stars in categories including business, beauty, fashion and entertainment. There was no category for “most monochromatic” up for grabs, but if there was it could have gone to basically anyone who showed up. Montana Cox wore a lovely white lace skirt set, Cheyenne Tozzi something thigh-split and otherwise forgettable, and Jesinta Campbell a drop crotch suit I would rather pretend didn’t happen. (Props for the Black Swan headpiece though.)

I’m 100% here for black and white, but against that backdrop – and when you know Nicole Trunfio is probably showing up – it was hard to miss Alice Burdeu with her deep hair and Crayola cobalt blue (though otherwise also forgettable) maxi dress. I’ve had a personal vendetta against dark red hair since I tried to bleach it out of my own hair in high school and ended up with something best described as fluorescent brass, but Alice almost makes me want to try it again. If I do I will also be dying everything in my wardrobe bright blue, because clearly this is the most striking color combination since… well, black and white probably. Well played.
