Trend Alert: The Un-Milkmaid Braid

Jan 26 2011 - 3:00am

Move over, milkmaid-style braids [1], because there's a new kind of braid in town. In lieu of this traditional style of braiding, which wraps around the front of the hair much like a headband, people are wearing parted-to-the-side, braided-on-the-side updos. While out and about in LA [2], Gwen Stefani [3] funkified the style with chunky braids casually swept to the back, while Emily Blunt [4] opted for a more structured take on the trend, and Diane Kruger [5] went for a softly tousled version. Will you be wearing this look, too?
