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.

Grazia Daily: Do 1D really need that much hair and makeup?

Louise Teasdale: Noooo they’re pretty much good to go… they need haircuts a lot though and we never have much time so I try and do like 1 per shoot/show and by the time I’ve done all 5 its back to the first for a tidy up.

 

Grazia Daily: How long does it take to get the boys ready before they go on stage?

Louise Teasdale: I usually only have 1 hour but they hardly have any make up so I can spend most of that on their hair.

 

Grazia Daily: What’s the secret to getting Harry’s infamous ‘do?

Louise Teasdale: Harry wakes up like that! Sometimes I don’t even see him before a shoot, or Liam especially when he had his shaved head.

 

Grazia Daily: What’s your product of the moment to use on the boys?

Louise Teasdale: Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray and Batiste dry shampoo.. all boys need these products!

 

Grazia Daily: Which boy is the most bothered with his hair/demands most of your attention?

Louise Teasdale: None of them ever want their hair done! I spend the most time on Louis and Zayn because they let me do different things all the time.. whereas the others we keep consistent.

 

Grazia Daily: Which product do the boys always try to pocket from your kit?

Louise Teasdale: Shampoo… I use the Bumble Seaweed one, or toothpaste that goes missing a lot. And (not a product but) phone chargers!

Grazia Daily: When you’re not busy styling others, what’s your hair routine like?

Louise Teasdale: I have high maintenance hair! I have extensions which are amazing but you need to look after them and style them properly so they don’t look like extensions.

 

Grazia Daily: Are there any products you can’t live without?

Louise Teasdale: I can’t live without Max Factor calorie 2000 mascara and Barry M black eyeliner.. Cheap as chip and all I need!
