Though Aras Gallant's styles on the pages of Vogue dictated the trends, according to him, they existed separately from real life. "Who the hell cares about hair-dos? I don't," he once said. "And I really hate falseness. That's why I despise the whole wig and eyelash routine…That's why it's so scary for me to see some of my painted Vogue faces on some of the street people walking about. It's groovy for fantasy, but for reality… I wonder."
