Tomorrow marks the winter solstice, also known as the shortest day of the year. And though this point of the season is predominantly defined by polished pull-backs and relevant pops of color, a sunnier aesthetic seemingly designed to brighten the darkest day is more than welcome. Enter Imaan Hammam.
For the MDL Beast Festival in Saudi Arabia, Hammam doubled-down on her as-of-late braided mane, the medley of taut plaits that swung past even her hips supplemented by glowing skin, amber-lensed sunglasses, and a coat of lipgloss. The look was undeniably festival-ready, and for those from-afar onlookers pondering potential year-end party vibes, offered an antidote to the, at times, overwrought looks of the holidays. We are, after all, embarking on a new decade—why not leave seasonal norms in the past?
