Whether it's true or not, I wouldn't be surprised if Rizer simply craved a change. When I spotted the supermodel front row at the BCBG show this morning, I decided to ask why, in her own words, she switched it up.
StyleList: What made you want to go back to red? Do you like being blonde or red better?
Maggie Rizer: I've gone back and forth so many times. My hair would probably really like it if I picked one. I like both. I think blonde is more of a reality and red is more playing make believe.
SL: Do you feel like the fashion world sees you as a redhead?
MR: [Nods her head]. Yeah.
SL: So that red hair's a big part of your whole mystique as a model, then?
MR: [Nods again]. Yeah.
Just then, Anna Wintour walked in to take her seat nearby, so I decided to change the subject. Slightly.
SL: How do you keep your hair from getting fried with all the dyeing?
MR: I use a great conditioner. Kerastase has a great spray-in conditioner.
SL: What's the best freebie you've ever gotten?
MR: I got a car once!
SL: Um, how'd you get that?!
MR: Just for going to something.
Pretty cool no? But just before I left, Rizer did manage to think of something even cooler:
MR: No, the best thing I've gotten for free is my dog probably.
SL: What kind?
MR: Golden retriever.
