We consider ourselves braid experts (evidence here, if you insist). To the point that we were quite certain that no braid had, this late in the game, escaped our notice. We have been humbled.
Diane Kruger is known around these parts as one of the most stylish babes in Hollywood, and it's all the more impressive because we've heard she doesn't rely on a stylist (or even on makeup) to look great, 24/7. So, we shouldn't have been surprised when we saw an impressive braid her her head, for a Christmas lighting ceremony on the Champs Elysées in Paris. It's hard to describe (and we suspect it may require some extensions), but it appears to be some kind of Princess Leia/milkmaid hybrid super-hairstyle. And...we're not 100 percent sure how we feel about it. To be clear, Kruger really can do no wrong, when it comes to Team R29. But, is this a good look? It's testing the limits of our loyalty, but we're torn.
So, what do you think of these next-level braids? Is this a style you're dying to try, or something you're writing off as celebrity-only fare? Let us know if you love it, 'cuz otherwise, we might just do a tutorial!
