Diane Kruger showed some major braid game on the red carpet in West Hollywood last night for the premiere of FX’s The Bridge. To achieve the striking style, hair pro Kylee Heath began by prepping strands with Leonor Greyl Spray Structure Naturelle and rough drying in all directions. After making a series of parts, leaving a “triangle” of hair exposed, Heath crafted an “inside-out French braid” and secured it at the nape of the neck using a clear elastic.
With the remaining sections, Heath created a bit of volume at the roots and fashioned a loose French braid on top, leaving the inverted plait peeking out. While you’ll likely need to enlist a friend to pull this one off, Kruger’s innie-and-outtie combo is guaranteed to cause a few double takes.
From a punky, pink-streaked ponytail at last year’s gala to this season’s forties-style chignon, Diane Kruger is always one to watch climb the crimson-colored stairs at the Met. And while a side part and glamorous waves were trending tonight (thanks to Taylor Swift, Blake Lively, Gisele Bündchen, Chanel Iman, and countless others), this neck-grazing classic is a look worth copying. Here, the quick how-to from Kruger’s hair pro, Miki:
1. Prep with a light mousse for volume and grip. Next, spritz strands with a heat protectant (like Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Heat Protect & Shine Spray) before blowing hair smooth.
2. Pull the length back into a tight, low pony.
3. For texture, tease the ends of the tail and mist with hairspray (try Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Flexible Hold Hairspray). Brush the formula out to boost body and eliminate any stiffness.
4. Wrap the tail around a cylindrical foam roll to form a circular, sculpture-like chignon, pin in place, and set with more shine spray for a sleek finish.
Now, if only that Jason Wu for Hugo Boss gown was available…
Between film premieres, parties, and celeb-studded events around the globe, this week was full of memorable hair and makeup looks (including Katy Perry’s emerald strands and Lupita N’yongo’s modern pouf). Here, we recap five more of our favorite beauty moves.
Kate Bosworth; Tiffany & Co.’s Blue Book Party; New York, NY
Kate Bosworth always adds something a little unexpected to her beauty look. At last night’s Tiffany & Co. party, she expertly teamed tangerine lips (à la Rag & Bone Spring ’14) with a powder puff pink gown.
Emma Stone; The Amazing Spider-Man 2 world premiere; London, England
Further proof that berry lips work all year-round—and we love how they complement Stone’s canary yellow dress.
Hilary Rhoda; Tiffany & Co.’s Blue Book Party; New York, NY
Sometimes it’s chic to match your makeup to your outfit. Hilary Rhoda’s icy blue shadow and navy sweater looked fresh—not retro—with a messy updo and nude gloss.
Diane Kruger; FX Networks Screening of Fargo; New York, NY
If anyone can pull off a frosted lip, it’s Diane Kruger. The actress opted for a toned-down version of Rodarte’s sparkling Fall ’14 beauty look, then added some depth with a smoky eye.
Constance Jablonski; Tiffany & Co.’s Blue Book Party; New York, NY
Jablonski may or may not have woken up like this. Smudged, lived-in liner and a messy pony looked effortless and sexy for a night on the party circuit.
Braids and bold lips abounded on the red carpet in 2013, but oddly enough, so did pink hair color. From young starlets to a more, ahem, mature crowd, rose-tinted strands made an appearance at multiple awards shows and galas. Diane Kruger dyed the ends of her knotted ponytail a shocking shade for the Met ball, while Sienna Miller opted for an allover pastel hue at the British Fashion Awards. And then there was Helen Mirren, who at 68 showed her true colors at the BAFTAs. Mirren may have played the conservative royal mum (for which she won an Oscar in 2007), but this beauty risk might even make the Queen blush.

Racked reports that Marc Jacobs is set to open an outpost on Bleecker Street (the former home to his collection of women’s accessories) for his new namesake beauty line. The 122-piece range launches at Sephora this Friday, but set a calendar alert now—the teaser of five products that debuted online earlier in the summer sold out within hours.
Chapter two in Chanel’s video skincare campaign with new face Diane Kruger debuted today. If you can’t follow en français, don’t fret; there are subtitles. Kruger cites Coco Chanel as a symbol of freedom because she never made compromises—not even in the name of fashion and beauty. She also speaks of the fashion house’s continued support throughout her career: “Chanel has always been by my side, when I was a very young model and now that I am an actress.” It’s nice to have friends in high places.
Indie perfumer Sanae Barber collaborated with Father John Misty to create a new scent based on the concept of innocence. The folksinger originally wanted the fragrance to include notes of orange blossom and violet, but the end result actually smells faintly of marijuana. While it wasn’t intentional, Barber told The Cut, “I think with any kind of scent, it is related to drugs and getting high because it creates an experience.” This eau isn’t exactly virtuous, if you ask us.
According to Elle.com, the “clavicut” is the new Karlie (i.e., the cropped hairstyle named after super Karlie Kloss that spawned a wave of similar bobs). The collarbone-grazing style is the next big thing, says backstage regular Luigi Murenu: “It’s much cooler than really long or really short hair, which are usually styled one way.”
