Think what you want of the Oscars red carpet — one of the most memorable fashion statements of this year’s Academy Awards was long, flowing white hair.
Claudio Miranda, who won early for his cinematography work in Life of Pi, earned comparisons to Lucius Malfoy and Edgar Winter on Twitter. (The former is a wizarding villain in the Harry Potter series, the latter a musician with albinism.) The good news is, the trend is apparently easy to achieve. When asked who did his hair for the red carpet, he told The Post’s Dan Zak: ”Bed de la Morning.”
Later in the show, both winners in the tied sound-editing category sported white manes: Paul N.K. Ottosson of “Zero Dark Thirty,” and Per Hallberg of “Skyfall.”
Is this the year metal hair makes a comeback? Maybe not. But it seems like a pretty good year for wizard jokes. Among the people Miranda, Ottosson and Hallberg were compared to on Twitter last night: Dumbledore, Gandalf, Meat Loaf (or another aging rock musician of your choice), Karl from Die Hard and the killer in The Da Vinci Code.
I think Lucius Malfoy just won an Oscar for Life of Pi. #Oscars2013
