  • How To: Create A Plait with ‘Tude

    Tue, 17 September 2013 3:30PM

    A little bit rogue, a little bit rough. The Good Girl’s hairstyle has gone a little bit bad this year. And it’s great. The plait – formerly reserved for storybook princesses and their readership demographic – has taken on a sexy, slept-in vibe, notes super stylist David Babaii. “The messy, loose braid, fish tail or plait is… more

    Wed, 28 November 2012 3:17PM

    I’m a big fan of Last Minute Decisions. Hell, I’ve even been known to regularly give the Last Second Deciders a go, too. I’m not scared. But, dear Primpettes, I am not prepared to take you with me down the slippery slope of my sedentary approach to decision making. To ensure you don’t leave the important stuff… more

  • How to: Style a Messy Milkmaid Braid

    Fri, 19 October 2012 2:06PM

    The milkmaid braid – or plaited headband – has been on red carpets for a while now. This is how it usually, and traditionally, looks (thanks, Ms Cat Deeley, for the lovely demonstration): As pretty as the style is, it’s also a bit seen-it-before.

    You might not have heard of the fashion brand, Balmain. But you would have surely seen the French house’s designs. They’ve been all over the red carpet these past few years. And it’s not surprising celebs love them, as their glitzy razzle-dazzle-ness catches the paparazzi light so well. Cases in point …  Beyonce    Zoe Saldana   Kim Kardashian You’d expect… more



  • Couture A/W ’12: The Double French Braid at Elie Saab (and How to Do it)

    Thu, 5 July 2012 12:15PM

    I really didn’t think that Elie Saab could top the sleek waves from his Spring/Summer ‘11 show, but considering my love of a good braid, this ultra-sleek yet feminine double-French version has pipped them at the post.

    Thu, 21 June 2012 4:38PM

    Admittedly, I’ve never been a die-hard Twilight fan, but character and film choices aside, I salute Kristen Stewart for staying true to her individual style.

  • How to: Do a ’60s-style Ponytail

    Wed, 21 March 2012 10:38AM

    Like many of you, I love Mad Men. But I adore the mad women beside them even more. In particular, I am crazy for the trends they have reintroduced.
