Gemma Arterton has already made a cameo on this blog thanks to a well-executed variation on the topknot, and at last night’s world premiere of Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time in London, her reliance on another sleek updo has earned her a repeat appearance. The actress went with a deep side part pulled into a low, precise ponytail—which perfectly complemented the exposed décolleté from her strapless Valentino gown. A bright red lip, clean luminescent skin, and a thinly lined eye rounded out her look, which managed to impart a little bit of an edge to classic Hollywood glamour without any mention of a smoky eye (an impressive feat, to say the least). What do you think of her hair and makeup combo?
The topknot is gaining steam on the red carpet. Let’s look at the facts: Last week, it was Keri Russell’s wispy updo that caught our attention, and last night, actress Gemma Arterton showcased a sleeker version of the humidity- and rain-friendly style at the world premiere of Clash of the Titans in London. We were obviously drawn to this image because of our own current weather aversions (where are you, sun? Where are you?!) and because it’s a really easy way to look chic for a night out—even if the elements aren’t on your side. It’s very similar to Guido Palau’s handiwork at Marc Jacobs’ Spring show, in fact, and requires a simple slathering of smoothing serum like Redken’s Glass 01, brushing your hair upward, gathering it in a ponytail, and tightly twisting. Et voilà. The style works in 70-degree sun, too, so practice now so you can give it a happier debut when things clear up in New York this weekend. Would you rock it?
