Now THIS Is How You Do A Milkmaid Braid

Seriously, how amazing does Keira Knightley look? It's true that she always stuns when she graces the red carpet — which has been a little too infrequently for our liking as of late — but at last night's premiere of Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World she really turned it out. In a flowery Valentino and an impossibly chic milkmaid braid, the Brit starlet was the picture of perfection.
We know, we know. "Impossibly chic" is not a descriptor you're used to seeing in reference to a fat, braided headband, but Keira's tousled, romantic 'do is just that. The pretty wisps, soft texture, and floral crown look feminine and ethereal, without being too twee or looking like she got lost on her way to Bonnaroo.
The secret to this adorned style is that the braid isn't too clear cut and defined — instead, it blends in, thanks to the texture and flyaways, both of which makes it look more natural and effortless. We can just imagine how gorgeous this would look as a wedding hairstyle, with some white lace and flowers. Keira did just get engaged, after all...(RCFA)
But you tell us: Did Keira change your mind on the milkmaid braid?
