Diane Kruger: Plaits, Please
Guido Palau’s ethereal coronet braids, seen on Valentino’s Spring ’12 and Fall runways, had us raving. Since those shows, creative plaits—from the face-framing halo to the artfully disheveled mermaid—have become an increasingly popular red-carpet option with starlets like Scarlett Johansson, Elle Fanning, Sienna Miller, and, most recently, Diane Kruger. After working a forties-inspired ‘do last week, the actress took a page out of Princess Leia’s playbook to turn on the Christmas lights along the Champs-Élysées. Wearing two loopy braided buns reminiscent of the Star Wars heroine and a Lanvin gilt brocade dress, Kruger looked holiday ready.
