As Nicole Kidman Debuts ANOTHER ‘Do We Chart Her Impressive Cannes Hair-Volution

cbfee nicole main image As Nicole Kidman Debuts ANOTHER Do We Chart Her Impressive Cannes Hair Volution

Although Nicole Kidman’s signature red carpet look is classic and elegant, we would never have used the word adventurous to describe her hair philosophy. That is until she got Cannes-ed. Over the past 12 days Nicole has gone all Rihanna on us – changing her hairstyle as often as she changes her couture.

Over the past fortnight she has gone from cute ribbons in her hair to edgy mohicans, to elaborate coiled plaits. Last night she had ANOTHER hair first, with her locks piled into a birds nest style updo. As Ms Kidman’s Cannes hair-volution has become rather complicated, we have broken it down for you…

1. Ribbons in her hair at Jury photocall – 15 May

For Nic’s first Cannes appearance she opted for a cute messy side pony with twists and plaits, all brought together by a black ribbon. Yes she does have a butter wouldn’t melt school girl vibe, but it’s chic and oh so French. Tres bien.

2. Then came the mohican at the Great Gatsby premiere – 15 May 

On the same day Nicole went all out for the Gatsby premiere with a seriously sophisticated, sleek updo which shows off her delicate features perfectly. Although it is quite a severe look, celebrity hairstylist Jason Cocking says ‘The almost futuristic hairstyle, which was slicked at the sides and voluminous at the top… was perfectly softened by her subtle makeup.’

3. Nicole at the Inside Llewyn Davis premiere – 19 May

Next up, Nicole went all out Hollywood with her locks curled and pinned to the sides, creating added height and volume. A lotta hairspray went into this glamorous look. This is the Nicole Kidman we know.

4. Nicole does Grace Kelly at Nebraska film premiere – 23 May

Then Nicole rocked a Grace Kelly-inspired pin-tuck bob to the screening of Nebraska. It’s been four days and we still cannot stop swooning over Miss Kidman’s sleek chignon.5bd5b nicole kidman grace kelly As Nicole Kidman Debuts ANOTHER Do We Chart Her Impressive Cannes Hair Volution

5. Elaborate Princess Leia plaits at Venus in Fur premiere – 25 May 

Then Nicole gave Princess Leia plaits a modern twist, with two low wispy coiled plaits. She embraced the fly aways, with messed up waves and a thorough back combing session.

6. Birds nest up do at closing ceremony – 26 May

Nicole then brought the volume with a mahoosive birds nest updo to the closing ceremony at Cannes. There are more braids, twists and hairpins than we could even begin to count.

Nicole Kidman Pulls Off The Perfect Plait At The ‘Venus In Fur’ Cannes Premiere

ad1da Nicole Kidman Plaits Cannes Nicole Kidman Pulls Off The Perfect Plait At The Venus In Fur Cannes Premiere

Another day, another cracking Cannes look for Nicole Kidman who attended the premiere of director Roman Polanski’s new film ‘Venus In Fur’ last night wearing her locks in an elegant coiled plait. On Friday we reported how Nicole had channelled screen siren Grace Kelly with a pin-tuck bob at the premiere of ‘Nebraska’, but despite the fact that she’s playing the late Princess of Monaco in a film biopic due for release in 2014, the Aussie actress opted for a less polished style this weekend. The fuss free coiffure is similar to the Boho up dos that we’ve seen on Kate Bosworth, Diane Kruger and Kristen Stewart, who are all fans of red carpet plaits.

Nicole’s wispy hair and natural make up complemented the Chanel Resort 2014 collection gown that she showcased on the French Riviera. The silk tulle black-and-white dress was radiant against the star’s ivory complexion and she gave it a Hollywood twist with a pair of red Christian Louboutin ‘Decollete 554′ pumps.

As our Beauty Editor revealed in ‘The New Ways To Wear Plaits’, the humble woven hairstyle has been enjoying a revival since Diane Kruger’s fishtail plait sparked frenzy in Cannes back in 2009 and Alexander Wang swiftly hailed the return of the plait in his Spring/ Summer 2010 show. Plenty of stars haved followed suit over the last few years. Whether you’re after milk maid braids or a party plait, twinning your tresses is the easy route to the ‘undone’ look, meaning you can ramp up your wardrobe efforts without looking like you’ve tried too hard.

Rita Ora is headlining Radio One’s Big Weekend today and, because she’s doesn’t limit her fans to just a listen to some live singing, she’s also unveiled a new hair look as well – a poker straight bleached ‘do with a rather dramatic dose of yellow dip dye! Wow, it really suits her too.

An homage to the Smurfs. Yes, seriously- the Smurfs. The 22-year old songstress debuted her new azure locks on Instagram whilst on her way to rehearsals. She tweeted, “”Today it’s smurf day icon smile Yello! Rita Ora Goes From Blue To Yellow Dip Dye PLUS We Look Back At Her Best Hair Moments #rehearsals #album2 #bluehairday”.

Over the past few months, Miss Ora’s trademark look has been synonymous with her peroxide tresses, so we’re not entirely convinced her new blue ‘do is anything permanent. Either way, hats off to you, Rita, because we think you look totally amaze, and love the Smurf-esque nostalgia sweeping through us right now.

Now, whilst we give full credit to Miss Kidman for the variety of bold, futuristic hairstyles she pulled off on the Cannes red carpet over the past few days, we were thrilled when we saw snaps of Nicole sporting this uber-feminine, Grace Kelly-inspired pin-tuck bob last night at the screening of film Nebraska.

The 45-year-old actress will be playing the part of the late Princess of Monaco in a film biopic due for release in 2014, although it seems Nicole just couldn’t wait to channel a little bit of Grace Kelly’s angelic charm last night in Cannes. We literally cannot stop swooning over Miss Kidman’s sleek chignon and love the way it highlights her delicate features. Topped off with a flawless complexion, beautifully groomed brows and petal-pink lips and cheeks, we reckon Miss Kidman could well give Miss Kelly a run for her money! We just cannot wait to see the full Grace-transformation come next year.

One ‘grace-full’ look, we say! Click through the gallery below to check out Nicole’s ‘do from every angle. Go on, you know you want to. 

Blogger Tanya Burr Reveals Her Diary In Pictures This Week

At just 23 years old Tanya Burr already has Make-Up Artist, Fashion and Beauty Blogger and YouTube beauty guru on her CV and she’s fast becoming a regular face on the red carpet at parties and premieres. Here at Grazia Daily we’ve been following her work for some time now and have loved the tips she offers up in her weekly feature where she’s revealed how to get the beauty looks of A-list stars from Taylor Swift to Lana Del Rey.

Tanya Burr has been to her fair share of glitzy premieres, and this week she went to the premiere of Hangover III where she walked the very same red carpet as Bradley Cooper. Swoon. She also went for a beach walk with her fiance Jim, and they did some impressive poses on the sand to get that perfect Instagram shot.

She has also shared with Grazia Daily this week a sneak peek of her latest YouTube tutorial which she will upload on Sunday – this beauty look is all about a killer red pout. Tanya is now a seasoned commuter as she regularly makes the trip from London to Norwich, which means that she always optimises her journeys. Last week she was editing her videos on route, but this week she has perfected the art of taking her contact lenses out on the train by balancing her mirror.
