Lea Seydoux at the Royal Film Performance of Spectre: Leave it to a French actress to wear old-school bombshell waves with ease. Instead of going totally retro, Seydoux updated the look by forgoing red lipstick and black eyeliner in favor of shimmery eye makeup, highlighter on her cheekbones, and pinky nude lips.
Jessica Biel at the 25th Annual EMA Awards: Another way to wear a braid that's a bit more black-tie ready is Jessica Biel's style, which from the front looks like loose waves, but is actually gathered into the back into a long, loose French braid. Pairing it with bronzed skin and metallic eye makeup, it looks formal without reading stuffy. (In other words, perfect for a wedding.)
Kate Bosworth at the SAG Foundation's Conversation on The Art of More: Having a destination wedding? Try Kate Bosworth's wrap-around braid. (It's easier to do than it looks!) Celebrity hairstylist Bridget Brager first created bed-head waves by spraying Sachajuan Ocean Mist onto damp hair, rough blow dried it, and then curled it with T3's Whirl Trio. She parted Bosworth's hair on the side, Dutch-braided it down the side of the head and behind the ear, wrapped it around the nape of the neck, and secured it with a bobby pin. To give the braid a lived-in feel, she finished with Kevin Murphy Powder Puff Volumising Powder. That's all!
