Couture isn’t just about beautiful ball gowns—it’s about taking everything to that ultimate, showstopping level, including makeup and hair. Yesterday we talked about our fascination with the flame-red uber-dramatic eyebrows that models sported during John Galliano’s Dior show. Today, we’ve fallen in love with another over-the-top look: pretty plaits. At the Alexis Mabille show, hairstylist Odile Gilbert did long braids woven with faux-flowers and vines. The result was the most beautiful princess-worthy hair we’ve seen in a while. Who can resist loving such a romantic, Rapunzel-perfect look? Even though you can’t wear this hairstyle in real life, a girl can fantasize.
