Ok, is it’s been forever since The Fifth Element came out in 1997(gasp), but it’s still a great movie! And of course it’s got so many great hairstyles, gotta give a hand to the costume/makeup/hairstylists for the movie for doing a fabulous job! Just as an example look at the scene where the Diva (Maiwenn Le Besco) sings the techno-opera and really look around at the audience in the background, there’s more awesome hairstyles just in that scene than in most entire movies.
Obviously the hairstyle that everyone remembers from The Fifth Element is Leeloo’s (Milla Jovovich) hair. The awesome bright orange with blond roots color… the orange and white color scheme that runs throughout the movie makes me think someone was a UT or Syracuse fan. lol. Back to the hair… it seems like for most of the movie that it had an almost dreaded look like is was twisted in clumps with some wax. I like it, gave it more of a hardcore look than just leaving it natural. The short bangs gave her a more cute feel. Put it all together, and I think it pulled off her look and feel for the character of Leeloo quite nicely. (more…)
