Pippi Longstocking: Beauty Icon?


With a rampant series of braids showing up from Alexander Wang to Jean Paul Gaultier this season—not to mention the pigtail party at Prada—it was only a matter of time before the trickle-down effect of newly popular childhood hairstyles would start appearing off the catwalk as well. Elettra Wiedemann is therefore something of an early adopter, as she chose to sport pigtail braids to the Sonia Rykiel presentation in Paris yesterday. Even though Wiedemann paired it with a sophisticated red lip, we’ve never really been able to get behind this look on people over the age of six, give or take a few years. We are, however, open to dissenting opinions. Can you make a good case for it?

    I love it!!! She looks super cute and balanced the girly braids with a sexy lingerie look. I’d say it’s more Bardot than Pippi Longstocking! And honestly…are we relegated to sleek blowouts or variations on the updo wherever we go? After all, girls just wanna have fun, right?

    I personally love it. It’s sweet, youthful, easy…and a “bit of a wink” sexy.
