'Tis the season for braids, and Emmy Rossum showed off her best Spring style at the Saving Tails Gala. Re-creating the look is simple because the key is imperfection. Sweep hair over one shoulder and make a plait secured with a hair elastic. If all your hair isn't quite long enough to go to one side, then use a bobby pin similar to your hair color to secure at the nape in back. Then use your fingers to stretch the braid, making more flyaways, which are a good thing in this case. Finally, to hold back Emmy's long bangs, a few white lacquered bobby pins, Ban.do's blush-hued Flash Bobbi Pins ($10 for a set of two), were added. Swipe on a bright red-orange lipstick like Nars Heat Wave ($26) to round out the look. With Emmy's fresh look in mind, we're all set for a sunny picnic on the lawn.
