It’s not exactly a cornrow, but it’s not just a braid—this season’s hottest hair trend is a hybrid mixture of the two. Often worn adjacent to a deep part, the side plait has been a highlight on the red carpet in recent months. Catwalk legend Heidi Klum was seen sporting the style this week, Kate Mara paired the plait with an undone updo for a sunset party on the High Line, and Amber Heard stunned crowds in Cannes with her badass bohemian iteration. Perpetual trendsetter Cara Delevingne was seen rocking it at last year’s Met ball, as was Chanel Iman. The look was even featured in DKNY’s latest #WeAreNYC campaign (perhaps taking beauty cues from Delevingne, who designed a capsule collection for the fashion label and cast its next campaign via Instagram). For the remaining days of summer, try the ratio that these models and actresses have mastered: 3/4 waves, 1/4 French braid.

Heidi Klum’s new “Fashion Reigns” ad campaign for Project Runway has been banned in L.A. The billboard depicts Klum and Tim Gunn dressed as royalty, standing over a group of naked, writhing models.

It’s official: The Jolie-Pitts are getting into the beauty contract business. But it’s Brad, not Angelina, who will be doing face time—for Chanel No. 5, no less. Is it weird that Pitt’s very masculine image will be used to sell the iconic women’s fragrance? Seeing as how this is the image in question (please direct your attention due left), the answer is decidedly “no.” [Chanel]

A new H&M ad featuring a scantily clad—and heavily bronzed—Isabeli Fontana is generating some complaints from the Swiss Cancer League, which is calling the images “alarming” and “completely [contradictory]” to their efforts to deter indoor and outdoor tanning abuse. Oops. [Daily Mail]
