Andie MacDowell Goes Gray at Cannes, Flexes on Entire Riviera
Making the case for going salt and pepper.
By Taylore Glynn Jul 8, 2021
We've been worshipping at the alter of Andie MacDowell's waves for decades—I mean, Four Weddings and a Funeral, anyone?—but the actress has taken her color next level in 2021. The 63-year-old L'Oréal Paris ambassador walked the 2021 Cannes Film Festival red carpet with new cascading, salt-and-pepper-hued curls.
After growing out her grays during the pandemic lockdown thanks to the chiding of her daughters, MacDowell has fully leaned into embracing her natural hue. Draped in embellished pastel numbers by Prada and Versace Atelier, the Hollywood hair muse rocked her curls two ways: on opening night, a side part with major volume, and then pulled into an elegant, wispy low ponytail.
MacDowell isn't the only Hollywood visitor rocking more natural, pale strands during this year's festival: Jodie Foster's face-framing gray streaks are a master class in how to grow out your grays and make them work for your style, while Dame Helen Mirren humbled us all—as per usual—with a white, high bun.
But we have fabulous news if your grays aren't coming in just the way you like, or you want to go bold before your follicles get on board: silver hair is just a salon visit away.
