No doubt about it: '60s fashion is making a comeback, from the runways, where Alberta Ferretti did a chain-belted fur coat and Chanel created mod-medieval ensembles, to Wella's Pop Couture collection spotlighting mod hairstyles and bold colors. Even Hollywood's gotten in on the act, with Sienna Miller channeling the rise and fall of '60s "it girl" and Andy Warhol wild-child Edie Sedgwick in Factory Girl. In the film, Miller sports Sedgwick's iconic haircut, which remains a styling sensation to this day. Not surprisingly, makeup and nail trends have followed suit, generating a wave of new eye-popping hues to choose from that are sure to become cult classics among fashionistas. Ready for a flashback?
