Jessica Stam walking for Prada in Milan produced my favourite moment from the Fall 2013 Ready To Wear shows so far.

It's all about the hair. Which is particularly impressive given that just weeks ago Stam was shooting off some pretty unacceptable Carol Brady vibes:

The Prada moment sent me into full-on "this looks like this" mode (which, as a fashion blogger, is totally my wont). The first example to come to mind was Taina Elg in George Cukor's 1957 film Les Girls:

Next up is the incomparable Leslie Caron as she appeared in The Glass Slipper (1955):

It is with Stam, Elg and Caron in mind that I issue this decree; Forthwith, off-the-shoulder garments may only be worn by women with pixie haircuts. Furthermore, women with pixie haircuts may only wear off-the shoulder-garments. So let it be written, so it shall be done.
