The Berlinale 2011, a Great Red Carpet Event
Berlin is known as frugal but sexy. Once a year however, Berlinade director Dieter Kosslick rolls out the red carpet for the stars in the great bear hunt. (The awards are in the shape of a bear, which is also the symbol of Berlin.) This is the signal for Berlin to pull out all stops and show its glamour for the Berlinade film festival
Last night, the 61st Berlinade started with the opening movie ‘True Grit’. The new film version of the massive epic tale by Charles Portis was produced by the well-known Coen brothers. None of the roughly 1,600 Berlinade guests wore lavish or glittering robes; they rather seemed to prefer simple elegance. At least among the female guests, we did however see beautiful hair and sensational hair styles. With a few exceptions, men opted for the very natural look, although in some cases this may be putting it mildly. Plenty of hair and even more beard were the new trends at least according to the True Grit leading man Jeff Bridges and director Joel Coen.
Striking was the preponderance of updos. The moderator Anke Engelke, the enchanting leading teen actress in ‘True Grit’ Hailee Steinfeld and the actress Hannah Herzsprung all showed up with enchanting updo versions. In contrast, the jury president Isabella Rosselini and the actress Christiane Paul convinced with equally glamorous short haircuts. Below we show you our favourite Berlinade hair styles.
